It's not often Porsche creates an all-new model in their 911 lineup. But the Carrera GTS is just that. It's faster, more powerful and better looking than any other model in the Carrera family. However it's still a little less hardcore than the 911 GT3, and a lot cheaper than the 911 Turbo.

The Porsche 911 Carrera GTS features a 3.8 litre flat-six engine which is tuned to develop 408 horsepower, that's 23 hp more than the Carrera S manages. The engine gets its extra kick thanks to a new intake manifold which can adjust itself to allow the engine to generate more torque or more power depending on the situation, and a new sports exhaust with two dual tailpipes which produces a sound distinctive to the Carrera GTS.

The Porsche 911 Carrera GTS comes as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, however the 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmission is available as a cost option. Fitted with the manual transmission the Carrera GTS can hit 190 mph, and when equipped with the PDK option - coupled with the Sport Chrono Package Plus in Sport Plus mode the Carrera GTS can hit 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds.

Despite the extra power and performance the new Carrera GTS uses the same amount of fuel as the standard Carrera S. That means 27.7 mpg is attainable, and CO2 emissions are rated at 240 g/km.

The 911 Carrera GTS is the only RWD model in the Carrera range to get the wider (by 44mm) bodywork of the AWD Carrera 4 models. This means the car has a firmer, more planted appearance on the road. This fact is highlighted by the unique black-colored 19" centre-locking RS Spyder alloy wheels which are particular to the model.

Also helping mark the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS out is the SportDesign front bumper with spoiler edge painted in black, special side skirts also in black, and the Carrera GTS badging on the doors and rear lid. The panel between the two tailpipes on the rear apron is also finished in black.

The three-spoke 'SportDesign' steering wheel is not only standard, it is exclusive to the new 911 Carrera GTS models. It is both minimalist and functional, for even sportier appeal.

Porsche 911 Carrera GTS official Porsche information:

With a power output of 408 hp, outstanding vehicle dynamics and a specification that emphasises the character of the iconic sports coupe, the new 911 Carrera GTS ascends to the pinnacle of the Carrera model series.

Powered by a 3.8-litre direct injection flat six engine that has been tuned to produce an additional 23 hp more than the 911 Carrera S, the new GTS combines the traditional 911 virtues of exceptional sporting performance, distinctive styling and day to day versatility.

Special attention was paid to the cylinder charge in the 3.8-litre flat engine fitted to the Carrera GTS in order to deliver 408 hp. A special resonance intake manifold features six vacuum-controlled tuning flaps that switch between power- and torque-optimised geometry, whereas in a Carrera S power unit there is only one tuning flap. Consequently, the maximum torque of 420 Nm is available at 4,200 rpm, 200 rpm earlier than with the Carrera S for increased low rev response. Added to this is a sports exhaust system with two dual tailpipes producing a unique sound. The outer shells of the exhaust pipes are painted in black and their inner tubes are polished on the outside and nano-coated.

As standard, the Carrera GTS has a six-speed manual gearbox and the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) is available as an option. In comparison with the Carrera S, top speed of the GTS with manual transmission rises by 2mph to 190 mph. In general, acceleration from zero to 62mph improves by 0.1 seconds; for a GTS Coupé with PDK and a Sport Chrono Package Plus in Sport Plus mode the benchmark sprint takes just 4.2 seconds.

True to the Porsche Intelligent Performance philosophy, this additional sportiness goes hand in hand with more rational appeal: the new 911 Carrera GTS consumes no more fuel than the Carrera S in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Fuel consumption of a Carrera GTS with PDK in the NEDC is 27.7 mpg (10.2 litres/100 km) and CO2 emissions are 240 g/km.

Unique within the 911 Carrera family, the GTS combines the 44 millimetre wider body of the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 models - including widened rear track - with a classic rear-wheel drive configuration.

There are many more details which underline the design and technology of the GTS from other Carrera models. For instance, the GTS sits on 19-inch centre-locking RS Spyder alloy wheels, painted in black with high-gloss finished rims, with 235/35 ZR 19 tyres on the front axle and 305/30 ZR 19 tyres on the rear. Further features include the SportDesign front apron with spoiler edge painted in black, special side skirts also in black, and the Carrera GTS logotype on doors and rear lid, in black or silver depending on the body colour. The area between the two tailpipes on the rear apron is also finished in black.

In combination with the standard black interior colour, the centre sections of the driver and passenger sport seats are covered with black Alcantara. The sporty interior ambience is further emphasised by use of Alcantara wherever driver and passenger come into direct contact with the vehicle; such as on the rim of the new three-spoke SportDesign steering wheel and on the gear lever and handbrake.
