Latest model: Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS 2012
Porsche AG is widening the top end of its Carrera model line and pairing up every of the two Porsche 911 Carrera GTS with an all-wheel drive twin. That means that the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupé and Cabriolet will combine the 408 hp (300 Kw) top of the range motor of the Carrera GTS family with the intelligent, all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM). Driving dynamics are not the only source of attraction. Economics are as well. due to Porsche Intelligent Performance the new all-wheel 911s consume no more than the equivalent Carrera 4S version, the Coupé remains at 11. 0l/100 km (25. 7 mpg imp. ) and the Cabriolet at 11. 2 l/100 km (25. 2 mpg imp. ) respectively based on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Moreover both of them boast an even more powerful traditional equipment suite compared with the Carrera 4S models.

Porsche 911 Carrera details:
The Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS performance unit has its origins in the 3. 8-litre, six-cylinder Carrera S motor. A wholesale revamping of the intake duct added 23 hp (17 Kw), taking the performance output to 408 hp (300 Kw) at 7300, rpm. The special aspiration system not only enhances peak performance output but flexibility and performance development as well due to a more generous torque curve in the lower and middle motor speed range. 320 Newton metres kick in from as low as 1500, rpm; the six-cylinder motor provides its rated torque of 420 Nm in the broad motor speed range from 4200, rpm and 5600, rpm. The sports exhaust system fitted as traditional ensures a distinctly sporty audio. It invests the new Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS with an unmistakable acoustic signature and the back view of its tail pipe with its original black surface layout lends it a original character.
