2017 Porsche 911 Really Doesn’t Offer More From Less

By  | 

At the moment you can choose from 16 different variations of the Porsche 911, however the carmaker doesn’t think that this is enough as they have recently revealed they are adding in another five versions to choose from.

Porsche didn’t make it to the Detroit Auto Show but they did say that they would bring out the GTS Coupe, Cabriolet and the Targa versions with turbocharged and they would be a huge improvement when compared to the Carrera S.

The GTS is going to offer the 3 litre flat six engine with bigger turbocharges and this will offer 450 horses, which will be 30 more than what you get with the Carrera S and 20 more than on the 2016 GTS.

Along with this we can expect to see 402 torque, this is going to beat the Carrera S by 37 and the GTS by 80. The new 2017 Porsche 911 will feature the seven speed manual gears as standard and the PDK is an option.

Apart from the GTS Coupe, which is rear drive, all other versions will offer the Porsche Active Suspension Mangement. The GTS has the PASM Sport and the ride height is 0.39 inch lower.

For the interior the Sport Seats Plus four way power come fitted as standard. They are a mixture of Alcantara and leather with the GT Sport steering wheel, armrest in the centre and gear lever. If you go on the track you get the Porsche Track Precision App to record what you are doing.

The first of the 2017 Porsche 911 five GTS versions are going to be available by April and the rear-drive is going to come in at $119,000 and the Targa 4 GTS and Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet will have a price tag of around $138,200.
