Porsche has unveiled the 911 GTS at the Paris Motor Show.
Designed to slot between the Carrera S and GT3, the GTS features a modified front bumper, revised side skirts, wider rear fenders (from the Carrera 4) and 19-inch RS Spyder wheels. Inside, the cabin has sport seats, a SportDesign steering wheel, and acres of Alcantara.
Power comes from a 3.8-liter engine which has been outfitted with a special resonance intake manifold (with six vacuum-controlled tuning flaps) and a sport exhaust system. Thanks to these changes, output climbs from 385 PS (283 kW / 380 hp) to 408 PS (300 kW / 402 bhp) while torque remains unchanged at 420 Nm (310 lb-ft).
The added power enables the GTS Coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds (4.2 seconds with the PDK transmission) while the convertible takes 4.6 seconds (4.4 seconds with PDK). Regardless of body style, the top speed is 190 mph (188 mph with PDK).
Available later this year, the Coupe starts at $103,100 while the Convertible commands $112,900.
