Quite excitingly, five new 911 models were recently unveiled at the Detroit motor show this year, which are set to go on sale in the UK this March. The new models are as followed; Carrera GTS, Carrera Cabriolet, GTS Carrera 4 GTS, Carrera 4 Cabriolet GTS and Targa 4 GTS.
All 5 cars run a powered-up version of the turbocharged 3.0 litres horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine. So here is the low down on the new Porsches and what to expect from the new models:
The forced induction engine delivers 444bhp, which is 30bhp more than in the facelifted 911 Carrera S. As well as this, the new engine is 405lbft of torque at 2150rpm, giving these new models an added 81lbft and some 3600rpm.
Buyers will be able to choose either the standard seven-speed manual or optional seven-speed PDK dual clutch gearbox. The Carrera GTD and Carrera Cabriolet GTS maintain rear-wheel drive, while the other three models; Carrera 4 GTS, Carrera 4 Cabriolet GTS and Targa 4 GTs have standard four-wheel drive.
Four Wheel Drive
Out of the collection, the main performance leader must be the four-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4 GT. It boasts a 0-60mph time of 3.6 seconds.
Not far behind in terms of wow factor, claiming 194mph as its highest top-speed, is the lighter rear-drive 911 Carrera GTS. Alongside this, the new and improved version of the 911 Carrera GTS, also claims the lowest consumption and emissions, with a CO2 rating of 188g/km.
In terms of appearance what sets the 911 GTS models apart from the other 911 models, is a front bumper and modified rear spoiler. The Carrera 4 and Targa 4 four-wheel drive models have a light trim strip between the taillights, whereas the rear-drive versions have a black trip strip.
As well as this the models, have darkened tail lamp lenses, centrally mounted tailpipes in black, and GTD logos in the lower part of the doors.
Inside the models, they all have GTS logos on the seats headrests, steering wheel rim. The armrests and centre console are trimmed in Alcantara and aluminium trip strips have been added to the instrument cluster.
Now let’s get down to business and what you all want to know, the prices of these bad boys.
The 911 Carrera GTS is valued at the starting price of the range at £94,316, while the Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet and Targa 4 GTs are at the peak, both being priced at £108,144.
