 Pros The Porsche 911 Carrera GTS is one of the sportiest 911s being offered this year. It's amazing top track speed of 190, its zero-to-sixty time of only 4.4 seconds (without the Sport Chrono Package, which lessens this time), and its 3.8-liter direct-injection 408 horsepower engine are sure to impress drivers that yearn for speed and power.

 Pros The GTS coupe's fuel economy ratings are pretty decent for a sports car. It achieves around 17-19 mpg in the city and 25-27 mpg on the highway.

 Pros If the 911 Carrera GTS isn't enough power for you, there are plenty of add-on packages that can increase its road clout, as well as several more 911 Carrera models from which to choose.

 Pros Safety features on the GTS are abundant and include: Ceramic Composite Brakes, Porsche Stability Management, three-point seatbelts, and several airbags (including thorax airbags, two side airbags), and Porsche Side Impact Protection System.

 Pros The Carrera GTS coupe also comes well-equipped with additional sports 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.

 Pros Technology features are another important part of the Porsche 911 GTS coupe, 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.

 Cons If you're not looking for a race-worthy automobile, one of the standard 911 Carreras might be a better choice for you, as they are a better fit for every day driving. That being said, the 2012 911 Carrera GTS is by no means uncomfortable during a daily commute.

 Cons With its starting price of $103,100, the GTS coupe can get very pricey, very quickly with the addition of extra options and packages, but you will certainly get what you pay for!
