Larger Turbos Create More Power

The 2017 Porsche 911 GTS has adopted the same new twin turbocharged engine that already powers the 2017 Porsche 911 and 911 S. The 3.0L F-6 motor generates 450 horsepower and a grin-inducing 405 pound-feet of torque, which is 20 horses and 80 pound-feet more than the outgoing naturally aspirated flat-six engine. Porsche generates the extra horsepower by using larger turbochargers to flood the engine with oxygen. See what a thrill ride all that horsepower creates when you take a trip to Porsche of Tucson for a test drive.

Be the First to Hit 60 MPH

Unless your competition is driving a rocket car, chances are that you’ll be the first to 60 mph when you drive the new 911 GTS. When outfitted with the PDK transmission, Porsche says the GTS will go from 0 to 60 in just 3.4 seconds, or about the fifth of the time it takes you to scream “HOLEY MOLEY.” There is a danger that such power could be a little overwhelming in untrained hands, which is why the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system is standard on every GTS. Suspension management reads the road using sensors to adjust your handling and help keep the driver in control. You’ll find it extremely helpful when your utilizing the Porsche App and Sport Chrono Package to record all your lap times.

New Design Provides More Downward Push

A new black spoiler lip on the front and taller spoiler in the rear help provide downward push to keep your new Porsche 911 GTS gripping the road and taking corners as if it were on rails. Black is the new fashion for other exterior elements, making an appearance on the taillights, rear grille and exhaust tips. Choose the rear-drive GTS to get a black strip running from tail light to taillight, while the all-wheel drive has a light strip separating the taillights. Black side mirrors, 20-inch wheels and black GTS door badging are other features of the new design.

Cabriolet Offers Top Down Excitement

If you’re looking for an adventure with the breeze in your hair, head to Porsche of Tucson to test drive the new Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet. Porsche Exclusive lets you personalize your Cabriolet with features like chrome tailpipe tips, platinum wheels, black tinted headlights with their own cleaning system, a leather rear view mirror and much more. Along with PASM, the Cabriolet comes with standard Porsche Traction Management, Porsche Stability Management and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus to help you remain in control.

Motor Trend Loves Little Roadster

When Motor Trend does a vehicle review, they always quote a bunch of numbers like speed to 60 mph, braking distance, g force, etc., but the editors pretty well summed up what they thought of the latest incarnation of the Porsche Boxster S when they said driving it is “delightful.” With 350 horsepower and a top speed of 177 mph, this little roadster provides a thrill a minute. Experience the thrills today by taking a test drive at Porsche of Tucson.

What Makes the New 718 so Special?

Imagine a small car with the power of a 60s’ muscle car, but the handling of a Formula One racer and a design that makes everyone stop and look. That, in a nutshell, is why the Porsche 718 Boxster S is a special vehicle. Add to that a mid-engine layout that allows for tons of space in two different luggage compartments and you have the perfect vehicle for a week-long drive up the Pacific Coast. The positioning of the engine provides dynamic cornering capability that is enhanced by near-perfect weight distribution. You and a special someone will enjoy the comfort of thickly bolstered seats that keep you in place as you attack corners like a dog attacks a bone, braking gently as you enter then quickly accelerating as you power through to the straightaway.

New Boxster Full of Highlights

There are plenty of things to love about the new Porsche Boxster S. That includes a multifunctional sport steering wheel that gives you the ability to change driving modes. Opt for the PASM sport suspension and your low ride height will be dropped by another 20 mm, taking the center of gravity down as far as possible. The new turbo engine still provides the familiar Porsche guttural roar that becomes even more dynamic with the Sport exhaust system. Lane Change Assist keeps you from drifting on those long road trips, while adaptive dampers let you tune the suspension from sporty to a more comfortable ride. One of the things you might come to appreciate most about the new Porsche Boxster S is the increased legroom, letting you stretch out for comfort.

Interior Oriented for Performance

A lot of thought went into the interior design of the new Porsche 718 Boxster S, placing all the controls in just the right position to deliver information and help drivers avoid fatigue. The new horizontal dashboard design is striking, while the rising center console brings the gear shift closer to the steering wheel, cutting nano-seconds off your track time. The new Boxster S is a stunning vehicle that’s delightful to drive. Fill your delight quota for the day by taking a test drive at Porsche of Tucson.
