Looking for a compromise between a Porsche Carrera S and the Porsche GT3? Then the new 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS may be the answer. The new sexy hips flowing around classically-styles curvaceous sheet metal taken from the Carrera 4 outlines the new Carrera GTS sheltering a 3.8-liter flat-six putting out 408 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Better yet, that peak power delivery happens about 200rpm sooner than it does in the Carrera S. This power, 23hp more than the standard S and 27hp less than the GT3, gets directed to the rear-wheels through a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 7-speed PDK transmission.
The Porsche Carrera GTS, to distinguish it from everything else, comes with a new set of 19-inch center-hub RS Spyder wheels, exclusively designed front and rear fascias and black Alcantara interior trim.
The Carrera GTS price starts at $103,100 and $112,900 for the cabriolet version.
