    Re: Carrera GTS: Porsche 911 Now Even Sportier

    I read an interesting article on the 911 GTS in the Bangkok Post of Fri 3 Dec: www.bangkokpost.com Seems to be originally from Autocar.

    Re: Carrera GTS: Porsche 911 Now Even Sportier

    Not sure they've got the acceleration figures right, but a positive review nevertheless..

    "The very latest version of the 3.8-liter flat-six “9A1” engine gets some lower-friction cylinder heads for lung-inhaler help via the cast aluminum enhanced intake system that we really feel as we throttle through the whole rev range in all seven gears. Power and torque delivery are just that much more ready to be called upon in Normal, Sport, or Sport Plus modes. Leave the GTS coupe in Sport Plus and get ready for Launch Control, and acceleration is 4.0 seconds flat to 60 miles per hour, and 9.1 seconds to 100 mph. Monitored testing will undoubtedly get that down to a 3.7-second run to 60, we’re betting."

    Full review below..

    It's a future classic the GTS. The pick of the 997 era.

    Definately, outside the GT3/2 versions of course, the GTS is IMO, the best type 997!

    Re: Carrera GTS: Porsche 911 Now Even Sportier

    Just heard from my OPC that my GTS is ready for transportation and to give me the chassis number..

    Can't get a definite delivery date as there's a back-log due to the weather....but at least it's on it's way.

    Re: Carrera GTS: Porsche 911 Now Even Sportier

     2011 will start in the best possible way for both of you  

    Looking forward to your driving impressions.

    At my dealer there is a black coupé and a silver cab . The car does look fantastic and the price is so good. With a few options it is exactly the same price I paid for my C2S ( nicely optioned but no PCCB ) 3 years ago . The GTS will certainly keep the best value of the 997 range and be sought after .  But then , I recon the C2S will suffer even a bigger hit

    well the car looks just terrific! honestly, one of the best looking 997 out there.

    Optically quite a good balance between the (spoilered) GT Models and more civil looking C2/4 etc..

    just waiting for the winter tires to come, and it is just killing me!SmileySmileySmiley
