Porsche officially introduced the new 911 (991) Carrera GTS models ahead of the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show and announced that it will offer them as a coupe as well as a cabriolet and with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. Slotted between the 911 Carrera S and the 911 GT3, the new 911 (991) Carrera GTS models are powered by a 3.8-liter boxer engine that produces 430 hp and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft) of torque at 5,750 rpm.
When using the 7-speed PDK automatic transmission, the 911 (991) Carrera GTS is able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 as a Coupe and in 4.2 seconds as a Cabriolet, while top speed is 189 mph or 304 km/h. When equipped with a 7-speed manual transmission, the 911 GTS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds as a Coupe and in 4.6 seconds as a Cabriolet, while top speed is 306 km/h or 190 mph.
Moreover, the 911 GTS models arrive with the Sport Chrono package and the PASM active damper system, which lowers the vehicle by 10 mm. As expected, the new GTS models offer plenty of features as standard, such as bi-xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), a sport exhaust system, an Alcantara-wrapped interior with leather-trimmed sport seats whose centre panels are made of Alcantara.
When it comes to exterior design, the GTS models have the 911 Carrera 4 body with wide-flared rear wheel arches and a wide track, 20-inch wheels with centre wheel locks painted in matt black, smoked headlights, black trim strips on the air intake screen and black chrome-plated exhaust tailpipes.
In Germany, pricing starts at 117,549 euros including the 19% VAT, while in the United States the vehicle starts at $114,200. Meanwhile, the 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet costs $126,100, while the 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet costs $132,800. The 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupe has a price tag of $120,900 in the United States.
