A power upgrade of 23 hp over the 911 Carrera S on which it is based enables the 3.8-litre GTS — available as a coupe and cabriolet — to bridge the gap between the standard Carrera models and the race track-oriented 911 GT3. Of note, the GTS’s additional sportiness comes at no extra environmental cost, says Porsche. Following the automaker’s Intelligent Performance development philosophy, the Carrera GTS consumes no more fuel than the Carrera S in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).

The GTS combines the 44-millimetre-wider body of the all-wheel-drive Carrera models with classic rear-wheel drive. It is also visually distinguishable by its SportDesign front apron with black spoiler edge, special black side skirts and a black finishing panel between the rear tailipipes. Centre-locking 19-inch RS Spyder design wheels and P305/30R19 rear tires provide an even sportier stance.

The standard interior features black Alcantara on the centre sections of the driver and passenger sport seats. Black Alcantara is also used 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 and handbrake levers.

The 3.8L flat-six engine delivers its 408 hp thanks to a number of internal changes, including a special resonance intake manifold in which six vacuum-controlled tuning flaps switch between power- and torque-optimized geometry (the Carrera S engine features only one such flap). Thus, maximum torque is already available at 4,200 rpm, 200 rpm earlier compared with the S. The extra power is enhanced aurally and visually by a sports exhaust system.

The GTS comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission, with a seven-speed PDK available as an option. In comparison with the Carrera S, top speed of the manual GTS rises by four km/h to 306 km/h. In all versions, acceleration to 100 km/h improves by 0.1 seconds, dropping to just 4.2 seconds for a GTS coupe with PDK and Sport Chrono Package Plus.

The GTS coupe will be available in Canada early next year at a base price of $124,600, while the GTS cabriolet will be priced at $136,100.

Porsche has revealed its plans to premiere a new beast model from the Carrera lineup at this year’s Paris Motor Show.Designed to close the gap between the Carrera S and the powerful 911 GT3 with 435 horsepower, the new 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS will boast an estimated output of 408 horsepower backed by extraordinary dynamics and emphatically sporty equipment.

On the outside, the new Porsche GTS will benefit from a 44 millimeter wider Carrera 4 body featuring a wider track with a classic rear-wheel drive. In addition to that, a set of sleek black 19-inch centre-mount RS Spyder wrapped in 305/30 ZR 19 tires on the rear axle underlines even more the enhanced performance of the pure-blooded sports car. Further details on the outer dress include: a SportDesign front apron with spoiler edge, unique sideskirts, as well as Carrera GTS logotype on the doors and the rear lid.

In performance terms, the 2011 Porsche Carrera 911 GTS will be offered with a 3.8-litre flat engine linked to a six-speed manual transmission as standard. Upon customer request, a seven-speed PDK will be also featured. Thanks these elements, the new car will be able to sprint from standstill to 100 km/h for only 4.2 seconds, equipped with PDK and a Sport Chrono Package Plus in Sport Plus mode.
