2010 Paris Motor Show: 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 30, 2010

Porsche revealed its latest model in the 911 range. The 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, which will be offered as a Coupe and as a Cabriolet, made its debut today at the Paris Motor Show. The GTS is positioned between the domestic Carrera S and the extreme GT3.

At the rear of the GTS, there is a modified 3.8 liter six-cylinder boxer unit that produces 408 hp (an extra 23 hp over what the S could deliver and 27 hp short of the GT3’s output).

The GTS also has a maximum torque of 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) that comes at 200 rpm lower than in the Carrera S (4,200 rpm). The engine of the GTS is expected to have the same fuel efficiency as the Carrera S (19 mpg city/ 27 mpg highway).

Its engine has a performance exhaust system that uses two dual-tipped tailpipes. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, but there’s an option for the seven-speed PDK double-clutch ‘box.

This manual transmission GTS boasts a top speed of 190 mph or 306 km/h, which is faster by 2 mph than the Carrera S’ one. The fastest version of the GTS, which has the PDK and the Sport Chrono Package Plus, can sprint from zero to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds.

Like the Carrera 4, this vehicle also has a 44mm wider body. Power is distributed to the rear wheels. The vehicle also features a wider track and wheels. The car is equipped with 19-inch center-hub RS Spyder rims that use a black finish and are covered in 305/30 tires (for the rear axle).

The GTS is distinctive with its black front spoiler edge, new front bumper, new sideskirts, redesigned rear fascia and black Alcantara trim. The GTS also gets exterior badging for the doors and rear lid. It will arrive at the US market at the start of 2011, and will be priced from $103,100 for the Coupe and $112,900 for the Cabriolet.
