Porsche 911 GTS Returns in LA Packing 430 HP

One of the most engaging options in the 911 family, the GTS, has returned.

Marking the 19th different 911 model, power for the GTS comes from a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine making 430 hp. The GTS is available as either a coupe or a cabriolet, with rear- or all-wheel drive. The new GTS comes standard with the PASM active damper system that lowers the ride height by 10 mm compared to regular 911 Carreras.

Porsche claims the dual-clutch automatic GTS should be good for 0 to 60 MPG runs of just 3.8 seconds for the coupe. Top speed is expected to be just under 190 MPH, depending on which exact GTS configuration is selected. Of course the GTS needs to sound sporty so standard on all models is Porsche’s Sport exhaust system.

The exterior of the new GTS models differs from regular Carrera models as the GTS is based on the wider Carrera 4 body. This includes wider wheel arches and a wider track. Black 20-inch wheels, tinted headlights, a black trim strip on the air intake and black chrome-plated exhaust tailpipes further separate the Carrera GTS from other 911 models.

Pricing for the 911 Carrera GTS starts at $115,195 after destination charges for the coupe , while the 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet will begin at $127,095. All four versions of the GTS will be available at U.S. dealers by the end of 2014.
