Carrera GTS is its all-wheel-drive counterpart, the 911
Carrera 4 GTS.
Both cars share the same 3.8 litre flat-six engine which has
been tuned to produce 408 horsepower @ 7,300 rpm, and both cars

While the engine is identical to that used in the two-wheel
drive Carrera GTS, the four-wheel drive version incorporates
Porsche Traction Management (PTM) to offer superior driving
stability and traction - at the expense of some tail-out fun.

the engine torque to the front wheels via a multiple-plate clutch.
Additionally, the 911 Carrera 4 GTS features a limited-slip
rear differential as standard.
As standard, the 911 Carrera 4 GTS comes fitted with a six-speed
manual transmission, and the Coupé model sprints from
0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds, the Cabriolet is slightly slower at
4.8 seconds. However if you tick the box for the optional Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe

In the looks department, the 2011 Carrera 4 GTS differs slightly
from earlier variants with rear-wheel drive. In addition to
the "Carrera 4 GTS" badges on the doors and rear lid,

drive is the additional reflective stripe between the tail lights.
Additional styling enhancements include the Porsche Sport-Design
front apron with black painted spoiler lip and special side
skirts - also finished in black. Inside, the sports seats are
trimmed in black, with Alcantara suede on the seat centre panels,
steering wheel rim, gearshift and handbrake lever.
