Like the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS but live in a cold state and need all-wheel-drive? Well, Porsche has heard your prayers. The company announced this morning the 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS, which when equipped with proper tires will prove competent for all seasons and all road condition.
Power for the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS comes from a 3.8L inline 6-cylinder making 408-hp at 7,300 rpm with a maximum torque of 310 lb-ft at 4,400 rpm. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual but you can add the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) 7-speed automatic gearbox. 0 to 60 mph for the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS with a manual comes in 4.6 seconds and 4.4 seconds when mated to the PDK with Sport Chrono Package Plus. Top speed comes in at 188 mph with the manual and 186 mph with the PDK.
“The 911 Carrera 4 GTS features an electronically-controlled Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel-drive system that delivers impressive traction and powerful acceleration in any driving situation,” Porsche said in the release. “The electromagnetically-controlled multi-plate clutch reacts within fractions of a second and ensures optimum distribution of power between the front and rear axles. A standard mechanical limited-slip differential further improves traction and driving stability around turns and on varying road surfaces.”
Prices for the 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupe start at $110,200 while the 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet starts at $120,100.
