Porsche Debuts New 911 Carrera GTS at 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show

2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Series

2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Series

The wait is finally over. Porsche introduced the 2015 Porsche Carrera GTS last week at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. This dynamic new model will provide a much-needed solution for the gap that currently exists between the 911 Carrera S and the over-the-top street-legal track car, the 911 GT3. The 2015 911 Carrera GTS will be available at Porsche of Tucson by the end of this year.

Available as both a coupe and a convertible, the 911 Carrera GTS offers the option of all-wheel drive on either body style. The most intriguing aspects of the new models: a true manual transmission and a virtual ton of horsepower. Precious few of the 911’s competitors are available in a stick. Porsche also offers the optional PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe) transmission on the new GTS model, which provides a superior level of engine efficiency and acceleration time. Still, many purists demand the manual transmission option in a sports performance car of this caliber. In fact, Road & Track said, “The 2015 Porsche 911 GTS is almost the manual-trans GT3 you want.” For a much smaller price tag!

Reworking the six-cylinder 3.8 litre engine from the 911 Carrerra S, the GTS offers 430 hp and a 190 mph top speed. Standard features on the GTS include Bi-Xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), sport exhaust, the PASM active damper system (which lowers the ride height 10 mm), and the Sport Chrono package. The 911 Carrera GTS is built on the 911 Carrera 4 body with 20 inch center lock wheels painted gloss black.

The interior is sport luxury perfection. Four-way adjustable front sport seats, in leather and black Alcantara, feature custom logos. In fact, the entire interior is loaded with subtle but highly nuanced exclusive features that will put these new models in high demand. The coupe starts at $115,195 and the convertible, called the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet, starts at $127,095. All-wheel drive adds $6,700, but reviewers swear it’s a worthwhile upgrade.

One reviewer said of the 911 Carrera GTS , “(if) you want a sports car loaded with technology that is as at home on a track as it is on the highway.” By the end of the year, you can find the new Carrera GTS and all models of the Porsche 911 Tucson at Porsche of Tucson.
