Porsche Launches Two New 911 Models

By Paul Joseph

German luxury sports car makers Porsche have unveiled two new additions to its iconic 911 range.

Available as either a hardtop coupé or convertible, and with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, the new 911 Carrera GTS puts out 430hp from its 3.8-litre flat-six engine.

The coupe can reach 100 km/h in just 4.0 seconds while the convertible needs 0.2 seconds more to achieve the same speed.

As well as improved straight-line speed, all GTS models receive the Sport Chrono package (standard on the 911 Turbo) and the Porsche Active Suspension Management system as standard, enabling a lower ride height and improved handling in the curves.

Other notable enhancements include a specially designed front bumper, tinted headlamps, black 20-inch alloy wheels and black chrome-plated exhausts.

The 911 Carrera GTS will make its first public appearance at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November before arriving in European showrooms. Pricing will start at $115,195 for the coupe and $127,095 for the convertible.

Founded by Ferdinand Porsche in Germany in 1931, Porsche has grown to become of the world’s most renowned luxury sports car brands.
