      Four new top models for the 911 Carrera family

      More power and dynamic performance - the new Porsche 911 Carrera GTS models

      Australia. Porsche is sending its second generation of the 911 Carrera GTS to the starting line.

      Four Carrera GTS models – a coupe and a cabriolet, each with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive – now close the gap between the 911 Carrera S and the street-legal sports car optimised for the race track, the 911 GT3.

      Some of the technical ingredients that generate even more dynamic performance and driving fun: 316 kW (430 hp) of power, Sport Chrono and PASM active damper system which lowers the car's ride height by 10 millimetres. Improved efficiency has also led to quicker acceleration and higher top speeds, but combined fuel consumption figures remain unchanged at the favourable level of the S models.

      When combined with the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), the 911 Carrera GTS Coupe sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.2 seconds). The top speed of each GTS model is beyond the 300 km/h mark; the fastest at 306 km/h is the Coupe with a manual transmission and rear-wheel drive.

      When adjusted for their additional features, the new top models are attractive in price as well. A number of options are included as standard, such as bi-xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and the sport exhaust system for that unmistakable GTS sound. The driver and front passenger also sit in an exclusive Alcantara interior with leather-trimmed sport seats whose centre panels are made of Alcantara as on the other GTS models by Porsche.

      The exteriors of the new 911 sports cars – like all GTS models by Porsche – differ significantly from the other Carrera models. All models have the 911 Carrera 4 body with wide-flared rear wheel arches and a wider track. Also standard are 20-inch wheels with centre wheel locks painted in an exclusive matt black. Accentuating the front end are special trim elements and smoked bi-xenon headlight covers. Black trim strips on the customised GTS rear air intake screen and black chrome-plated exhaust tailpipes characterise the rear of the GTS.

      With the addition of these new top models, the 911 Carrera range now consists of twelve sports cars at three power levels, as coupes and cabriolets, and with rear-wheel and all-wheel drive systems.

      The new 911 Carrera GTS models can now be ordered through Official Porsche Centres with deliveries commening in February 2015.

      Model Price - (7-sp manual) / PDK
      911 Carrera 2 GTS Coupe - $268,700 / $276,090
      911 Carrera 2 GTS Cabriolet - $289,700 / $297,090
      911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupe - $284,100 / $291,490
      911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet - $305,300 / $312,690
      WANT!

      This just sold for $30k.

      I expected it to go for $15k more. Should have bid.

      The brake intervention shown in the video is a deliberately applied intervention to prevent the car from rolling over. This is called Active Rollover Prevention (ARP). The precise, momentary application of brake force to the front wheel at the outside of the bend down to the low slip range minimises cornering forces to avoid critical or instable driving conditions such as oversteer, rollover or detachment of the tyre from the wheel. Situations such as these may not be controllable by the driver.

      The video shows that an understeer response is selected on purpose since it is significantly easier for the driver to control than oversteer. The function shown and the resulting driving response are explicitly desired to increase driving safety in such a highly dynamic driving manoeuvre.

      In the SUV segment, Active Rollover Prevention (ARP) is state-of-the-art technology and is also used by other vehicle manufacturers.

      The intensity of ARP intervention is dependent on vehicle speed and steering angle speed, among others. This means that ARP brake intervention is diminished accordingly at reduced vehicle speed or steering angle speeds. On the other hand, it means that the driving style adopted by Teknikens Värld was very demanding and resulted in the safety function being triggered.

      Active Rollover Prevention is permanently active, irrespective of whether Porsche Stability Management (PSM) is on or off. If PSM is on, ARP intervention is significantly diminished since PSM brake interventions to stabilise the vehicle occur much earlier or are superimposed.

      The function (ARP) is applied for a maximum of 300 milliseconds, depending on the driving situation. This short intervention ensures the directional stability of the vehicle. Lateral displacement is negligible. For this reason we do not regard this driving state as critical. As the video shows, lane changing can be completed stably and safely. What is more critical in this situation is if the vehicle were to roll over or the rear were to break away. The vehicle demonstrated none of these instable states (rollover, oversteer, wheel lift) at any time.

      Porsche uses a comprehensive dynamics test programme which the Macan completed successfully. The driving manoeuvres performed include double lane change according to ISO, slalom with 10 x 18 metres and 10 x 36 metres, the VDA obstacle avoidance test which is very similar to the Teknikens Värld ”moose test”, and the NHTSA rollover safety test. All Porsche cars are designed for maximum safety based on these and other world-wide tests.

      Wonder if this is a demo? Possibly somebody who got sick of the whole engine drama and had the car bought back? Possibly someone like Way who thought 1700km was trade in time?

      Maybe they got sick of vomiting every morning when they walked in the garage. That colour is hideous.
