2012 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet

2012 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet

Building on the well-received 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet with its extra power, visual panache and extensive extras for an attractive price, Porsche today announced the 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet. As an all-wheel-drive model, and when equipped with the proper tires, the Carrera 4 Cabriolet has proven more than competent for all seasons and all road conditions. The Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet wraps an aggressive wide body around a long list of performance, comfort and cosmetic enhancements. (continued below)

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet: GTS with All-Wheel-Drive

(continued from above)

A GTS exclusive power upgrade of 23 hp over the 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet, on which it is based, enables the 3.8-liter 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. Top-track speed is also increased to 187 mph (186 mph w/PDK).

The Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet features an electronically-controlled Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel-drive system that delivers impressive traction and powerful acceleration in any driving situation. 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.

The 3.8-liter flat-six delivers its 408 hp thanks to a number of internal changes, including a special resonance intake manifold with six vacuum-controlled tuning flaps. Maximum torque is available at 4,200 rpm; 200 rpm earlier compared with the Carrera 4S Cabriolet. The extra power is enhanced by a standard sports exhaust system with four black tailpipes finished with polished, nano-coated inner shells.

Like every all-wheel-drive 911 model, the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet features a body with 44-mm wider wheel arches at the rear. It is also distinguishable by its SportDesign front apron, black side skirts from the 911 GT2 and a black panel between the rear tailpipes. Center-locking 19-inch RS Spyder design wheels, painted in high-gloss black with polished lips are a final visual flourish.

Inside, black is the dominant color, with the standard interior featuring Alcantara on the center sections of the standard sport seats with their larger side bolsters. Black Alcantara is also used wherever the driver comes into direct contact with the vehicle - like on the rim of the three-spoke SportDesign steering wheel and on the gear and handbrake levers.

The extra all-weather performance, visual muscle and standard equipment of the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet comes at an attractive price. On sale this fall, the 2012 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet will be priced at $120,100.
