But do not think that it’s over, because there was still some version to present. This is the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS which, as its name suggests, is complementary to the rear-drive GTS range with two new body styles, coupe and convertible.
Porsche announces to them 408 horsepower, a negligible figure especially if we consider that consume the same as a previous Carrera 4S. The Coupé remains at 11 liters per 100 kilometers and the Cabriolet at 11.2 l/100 km, figures which are beginning to become common in cars Stuttgart.
Based on the 3.8-liter boxer engine that mounts the Carrera 4S, the GTS gets 23 more horsepower to reach 408 hp at 7,300 RPM. It is quite usable as 1,500 laps have 320 Nm of torque, while between 4,200 and 5,600 RPM the figure rises to 420 Nm of torque.
