2017-porsche-911-gts-1

Porsche has announced five new Carrera GTS variants of its 911 sports car in coupe, cabriolet and targa body styles, priced from $136,000. The latest additions take the number of 911 models in the current generation to 25.

All five models share a 3.0L turbocharged flat-six borrowed from lesser 911 models, but fitted with larger turbochargers that endow it with a bonus of 30 hp and 37 lb-ft of torque compared to the Carrera S (and 20 hp more than the 2016 Porsche 911 GTS), for totals of 450 hp and 405 lb-ft. A seven-speed manual transmission comes standard, and Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch automatic is an option; Porsche says the Carrera 4 GTS coupe does the zero-to-100 km/h sprint in 3.6 seconds, and that all versions will top 300 km/h.

Coupe and cabriolet models start as rear-drivers and can be optioned with four-wheel drive, while the Targa gets all-wheel traction as standard. All variants get Porsche’s active suspension management (PASM), and coupe models further benefit from a sport version of that system that lowers the ride height by 10 mm.

Porsche says functional exterior changes include a front end spoiler lip and an extended rear spoiler to reduce front and rear lift, and 20-inch centre-lock wheels.

Pricing starts at $136,000 for the RWD Carrera GTS coupe and $150,000 for a RWD GTS Cabriolet; AWD adds $7,900 to each, and the Targa 4 GTS comes in at $157,900. The 911 GTS variants are set to reach dealerships in the second quarter of this year.
