2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Performance
This model comes with the same engine we saw on Carrera S. You know, the old 3,8 liter V6. In this model engine comes with a solid power boost, which makes its output climb from 400 horsepower, seen in the S model to mighty 430. This the best you can get from a naturally aspired V6. Prime suspect for this nice power boost are the new Sport Exhaust System and Sport Chrono Package. Another feature that made this vehicle faster and more powerful is the PASM active damper system, which lowers its ride for 10 millimeters comparing to the S model.
GTS is a fast car, with maximum speed that goes from 187 to 190 mph, it depends on the transmission buyers choose, and the exhaust system. Acceleration is also better than in regular and S model, it is able to reach 60 mph in only 3,8 seconds. One of the best things with this model is that in spite of its solid performance upgrade, it still comes with the same fuel efficiency as the S model, from who it took its powertrain.
