The 997 still ain't dead.

GTS, now with added drive!

Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is widening the top end of its Carrera model line and pairing up each of the two 911 Carrera GTS with an all-wheel drive twin. That means that the 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupé and Cabriolet will combine the 408 hp (300 kW) top of the range engine of the Carrera GTS family with the intelligent, all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM). Driving dynamics are not the only source of attraction. Economics are as well. Thanks to Porsche Intelligent Performance the new all-wheel 911s consume no more than the equivalent Carrera 4S version, the Coupé remains at 11.0 l/100 km (25.7 mpg imp.) and the Cabriolet at 11.2 l/100 km (25.2 mpg imp.) respectively based on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Moreover both of them boast an even more comprehensive standard equipment package compared with the Carrera 4S models.


[+]
The 911 Carrera 4 GTS power unit has its origins in the 3.8-litre, six-cylinder Carrera S engine. A wholesale revamping of the intake duct added 23 hp (17 kW), taking the power output to 408 hp (300 kW) at 7,300 rpm. The special aspiration system not only improves peak power output but flexibility and power development as well thanks to a more generous torque curve in the lower and middle engine speed range. 320 Newton metres kick in from as low as 1,500 rpm; the six-cylinder engine delivers its rated torque of 420 Nm in the broad engine speed range from 4,200 rpm and 5,600 rpm. The sports exhaust system fitted as standard ensures a distinctly sporty sound. It invests the new Carrera 4 GTS with an unmistakable acoustic signature and the rear view of its tail pipe with its unique black surface design lends it a unique character.


[+]
At full power the Carrera 4 GTS Coupé sprints to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds, the Cabriolet in 4.8 seconds. The Carrera 4 GTS is fitted as standard with a six-speed manual transmission but the Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) seven-speed is available as an option if desired. The PDK shaves an additional 0.2 seconds respectively off the acceleration times from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph).

[+]
In the Carrera 4 GTS as well, PTM all-wheel drive stands for Porsche’s typical driving pleasure with even more driving stability, traction and agile handling. The PTM achieves this by directing the optimal proportion of the engine torque to the front wheels via a multiple-plate clutch. What’s more, just how single-mindedly the Carrera 4 GTS is designed for driving dynamics is evident from the use of a standard limited-slip differential. This mechanical rear differential lock contributes to the driving dynamics of the electronically controlled all-wheel drive system.

[+]
Visually, the new Carrera 4 GTS models with all-wheel drive differ in points of detail from earlier variants with rear-wheel drive: In addition to the type name on the doors and rear lid, the distinguishing characteristic of all models with all-wheel drive is the additional reflective stripe between the taillights. What the Carrera GTS models have in common is the 911’s wide body, otherwise reserved for the all-wheel version of the 911s, and the rear axle track width that goes with it. In numerous other details as well the GTS models differ both visually and technically from the other Carrera models. For example, they run on 19 inch RS Spyder wheels in black with central locking and gloss-lathed rim flanges fitted with 305/30 ZR 19 tyres on the rear axle.

[+]
Additional visual features include the Sport-Design front apron with black painted spoiler lip and special side skirts, also in black. Driver and passenger are accommodated on sports seats. Typical of the GTS, the emphatically sporty black Alcantara covering on centre panels, steering wheel rim, gearshift and handbrake lever, door handles and door storage box lid and extension are offered as standard in addition to a range of leather upholstery options.

[+]
The 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupé, including country-specific equipment and VAT at 19 per cent, is offered in Germany at a price of 111,956 euro, the Cabriolet costs 122,071 euro. Both models will be on sale in Germany from July 2011.

Surely the very last incarnation of the 997? I thought the RS4.0 was the grande finale. Anyway, liking that but what a long badge on the back!

Ummm,

Struggling to find the point of this car to be honest. At least with the GTS2 it was offering the wide body for 2 wheel drive. This just now seems like a 4S with some optional extras form the spec list thrown in??

And what's wrong with that if you wanted a C4S X51 Wink

The point is, negotiate a discount and get a GTS4 and you won get a cheaper and better equipped C4S (plus by definition, "limited edition").

This will be the last incarnation of the 997 as production goes off-line in July.

That's what they said about the GTS and then the Black came out.

Next week they are will probably launch a "Turbo GTS4 black sport classic" Grin oh then there will have to be an RS version of course Very Happy

It's not your fault, but that wasn't funny the twenty-third time Porsche brought out a "Special Edition".

But you have to allow the factory some time to actually build these things. When the factory goes off-line for the 991 re-tooling, thats it.

No more 997.

To be fair to Porsche, they never said the GTS was the last, or even limited edition.

Crikey, that's some hard sell!

At least let me sleep on it (no PDF brochure or entry on configurator, yet).

Although, I have already bought the dental floss:

I think they have already run that stock pile down, plus CTS are concentrating on the new 991 folding roof productionisation.

Agreed, my bet would be a NO. Don't think it would look right either. Isn't the targa's suspension a little softer? (gt4) Would be a bit of a contradiction, but I have been surprised before! Surprised

Yes it has retuned (softer) suspension and extra weight in all the wrong places.

Actually, that sounds a lot like an old GF, just before she became an ex GF.
