One of Porsche’s centrepiece items at the Paris Motor Show this year was the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS coupe and convertible. The car’s creator, August Achleitner, recently gave his time during the show to explain the GTS concept.
The Porsche 911 Carrera GTS is, as August Achleitner explains, a car which slots into the 911 range in between the 911 Carrera S and the 911 GT3. It offers the wide-body usually only available on the Turbo and Carrera 4 variants, all of which are four-wheel drive, only on the GTS it remains a strict rear-drive car.
More details are explained in the video anyway, which was put up on Porsche’s YouTube channel earlier this week.
The 911 GTS will be available in Australian showrooms from January 2011. Prices start at $270,100 for the coupe and $288,700 for the cabriolet.
Australian model engine specifications: 3.8-litre flat six outputting 300kW of power and 420Nm of torque, offering fuel consumption figures of 10.2L/100km.
