New Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Revealed Online

Porsche has revealed the second generation 911 Carrera GTS online ahead of its global debut at Los Angeles Motor Show in November. Each of the four new 911 Carrera GTS models – a Coupé and a Cabriolet, available with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive – build on the established core values of the iconic rear-engined 911 by adding further technical features to generate even higher levels of dynamic performance and driving enjoyment.
The new Carrera would be powered by a 3.8L, 6-cylinder motor which would belt out 430 bhp; a substantial enhancement by 30 bhp over the Carrera S. It would be coupled with two different gearboxes - Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) double-clutch gearbox and seven-speed manual transmission. While with PDK dual-clutch gearbox, the 911 Carrera GTS would return around 11.5 kmpl and also sprint from zero to 100kmph in mere 4.0 seconds. Although, the Cabriolet variant would take a slightly longer time of 4.2 seconds too achieve this distance. On the contrary, while paired with the 7-speed manual gearbox, this beast has a top speed of 305kmph - the highest. The new 911 Carrera GTS models are available to order from Porsche Centres in the UK and Ireland from today, with first cars arriving in showrooms during November.
The exteriors of the new 911 Carrera GTS – like other GTS models – differ significantly from the other Carrera models. All versions feature the 911 Carrera 4 body with wide-flared rear wheel arches and a wider track. Also standard are 20-inch diameter alloy wheels with centre-lock mechanism, painted in an exclusive matt black finish. Accentuating the nose styling are special trim elements and smoked bi-Xenon headlights with the addition of the Porsche Dynamic Lighting System (PDLS). The air intake grille on the rear engine lid features bespoke GTS black trim strips and black chrome-plated exhaust tailpipes add to the strong visual identity. The driver and front passenger sit in an exclusive Alcantara interior with leather-trimmed sport seats. The centre seat panels are finished in Alcantara, as on the other Porsche GTS models.
