After review, we can confidently say that the 2012 Porsche Carrera GTS Cabriolet is one of the most impressive convertibles in this year's lineup. It's got all the power you're looking for in a sleek, sexy package. The GTS convertible achieves around 17-19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Sporty features include a sport exhaust system, a variable resonance intake system featuring six switchable, vacuum-controlled valves, an optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) 7-speed transmission (a six speed manual is standard), a top track speed of 190 mph, and a direct-injection 3.8-liter 6-cylinder rear engine that produces 23 more horsepower than the standard Carrera S models and reaches zero-to-sixty in only 4.6 seconds with the standard transmission. Porsche Stability Management, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes, and several airbags add safety to the GTS' expansive package. Several add-on packages and options are available, including Sport Chrono and Sport Chrono Plus packages.
