Porsche have released details on their updated Porsche 911 Carrera GTS ahead of the Paris Motor Show this October. Porsche have noted that the Carrera GTS is the best model they have released to date in the Carrera series, as there are notable improvements to performance, design and efficiency.
Sporty styling for new Porsche 911 Carrera GTSThe Porsche 911 Carrera GTS has some updates to the general styling, both inside and out. For starters the GTS comes with the wide Carrera 4 body found on the AWD models with a wider track and rear-wheel drive. Other changes come with the GTS using 19” center-mount RS Spyder wheels along with a SportDesign front apron with spoiler edge. The interior is mostly black with the center section of the sport-seats being covered in Black Alcantara as well as the rim of the steering wheel, the handbreak and the gear lever.
Under the hood the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS packs a 3.8 liter engine that produces 408hp which is 23hp more than the Carrera S. And while the torque output is the same as the Carrera S at 420Nm, it is available 200rpm earlier at 4200rpm. Improvements to the fuel efficiency in the GTS are thanks to the Porsche Intelligent Performance and PDK, enabling the Coupe GTS to clock in at 10.2liters/100km and a CO2 emission rate of 240g/km.
Most importantly though, the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS clocks in at 0.1 seconds quicker than the Carrera S in the 0-100km/h standing, coming in at just 4.2s. The top speed has also increased and tops out at 306km/h which is a whopping 4km/h better than the S, which is very good to know if you are ever racing your GTS vs the S model from robot to robot in Boksburg.
The Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Coupe and Cabriolet models go on sale in Germany in December of this year.
