Yet Another Porsche 911 Variant Announced!
As if there weren’t enough variants of the current generation Porsche 911, the Ingolstadt-based automaker has announced yet another one – the 911 Carrera 4 GTS, just a few months away from the next-gen 911. This new variant of the current 911 is in fact the all-wheel drive version of the 911 Carrera GTS, a car that we saw first last year at the Paris Motor Show.
Customers will be able to choose from both coupe and cabrio variants, powered by a 6-cylinder 3.8-liter inline engine that outputs 402 hp (408 PS / 300 kW) and has a peak torque of 310 lb.-ft (420 Nm). As standard, this engine will be mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox or with the optional 7-speed double-clutch PDK transmission. 0-60 mph will be done in 4.6 seconds for the coupe model fitted with the manual, while the convertible is a little bit slower, needing 4.8 seconds. The PDK gearbox shaves off 0.2 seconds for both variants.
The car features a new wide bodykit that has a wider rear track, a front apron, black spoiler lip, black side skirts, along with 19-inch RS Spyder black-painted rims with central locking. The cabin gets sports seats and a black Alcantara trim for the center console, gearshift, steering wheel rim, door handles and handbrake lever.
As far as the PTM all-wheel drive system, it features torque vectoring in order to send the suitable amount of twisting power to the wheels in the front with a limited-slip differential for the car’s rear axle.
In Germany, the base price for the coupe version is 111,959 Euros, while the cabriolet starts from 122,071 Euros. The model is scheduled to go on sale this July.
