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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
