2011 Porsche 911 GTS review





Porsche has more 911 Carrera variants than one could shake a stick at and their latest, the 911 Carrera GTS, intends to cap the range with its sportiest model yet.

Without going into the Turbo series or the outrageous GT3 factory race car lineup, this is as athletic as the 911 Carrera gets.

With white paint, black wheels, red brakes and that trademark Porsche 911 bubble-butt body, this 911 GTS is terribly sexy and hardcore. Same deal inside. Drivers get plenty of gauges, a big centre mounted tachometer, and a simple, concise and focused control layout.

Suede-trimmed racing-style seats leave backsides just inches from the road, the tester got race-inspired red seatbelts, and there was even a ‘Sport Chrono’ lap timer for those visits to the track.

But this is a race-bred car that’s sensible enough for everyday use. Seriously, it’s easy to board and exit, easy to park, has a rear seat for very small people or some extra gear, and it’s not even terrible on fuel - as far as 400-plus horsepower sports cars go. This might be as everyday-friendly as track-ready’s ever been.

Wow! That was really a nice car. But meanwhile, I read heard that Porsche confirmed some information that has been rumored for a while. Porsche answered a ton of speculation Thurs when it announced the United States release of two models. The German car maker will reveal the Cajun little SUV stateside in 2013. A diesel model of the Cayenne, already on the roads in Europe, will get to our shores in 2012. Getting one of the new cars will cost a big payday loan.
