The 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS is here

The Porsche 911 family has been expanded yet again with the German automaker adding new Carrera GTS coupe and Carrera GTS Cabriolet models to the range. The Porsche 911 lineup now contains a whopping 19 different models. The new variants are aimed at buyers seeking something sportier than the regular Carrera and Carrera S models and less hardcore than the track focused 911 GT3. The Porsche 911 GTS comes in both coupe and convertible variants and is available with either rear- or all-wheel drive. All 911 GTS cars are powered by a 3.8 liter flat-six engine churning out 430 hp, 30 hp more than in the standard 911 Carrera S. Either seven-speed manual or seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmissions are available, and the PDK-equipped car is said to get from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and go on to a top speed of 190 mph.
