The Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet convertible is one of the sportiest 911s being offered this model year. It has an impressive top track speed of 190, a zero-to-sixty time of only 4.4 seconds (with the PDK transmission, 4.6 with the standard six-speed), and its 3.8-liter direct-injection 408 horsepower engine are sure to impress drivers that desire power and speed.
If the 911 Carrera GTS doesn't have enough power for you, there are plenty of add-on packages that can increase its heft, as well as several more 911 Carrera models from which to choose.
Safety features on the GTS Cabriolet abound and include: Ceramic Composite Brakes, Porsche Stability Management, minimal body flex, and several airbags (including thorax airbags, two side airbags), a roll over system, Porsche Side Impact Protection System, and two spring roll over bars. A convertible couldn't feel safer!
The Carrera GTS convertible also comes well-equipped with added sporty features, including a sport exhaust system, a Porsche Active Suspension Management system, 19-inch RS Spyder Wheels, a SportDesign steering wheel and sports seats, and a variable resonance intake system featuring six switchable, vacuum-controlled valves.
Technology features are abundant on the Porsche 911 GTS convertible, including Porsche Communication Management (with several audio features, including voice control, Bluetooth connection, and optional navigation), a Universal Audio Interface, and an optional BOSE Surround Sound System.
If you're not looking for a race-worthy sports car, one of the standard 911 Carreras might be a better choice for you. They could be considered by some drivers to be a better deal for everyday driving. However, the 2012 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet is by no means uncomfortable during a daily commute, especially if you want the option of soaking in some summer sun.
With its starting price of $112,900, the GTS coupe starts at a reasonable price, but this can increase very quickly with the addition of extra options and packages. However, sometimes the investment is worth additional features.
