2017 Porsche 911 Is A Versatile Monstrous Toy
Porsche has much experience when it comes to cars on the track. It brings this experience it has from the track to the street with the cars available for consumers. This is much true for the 2017 Porsche 911 GTS, which is a car that is as much at home on the track as it is on the street.
The Porsche 911 GTS is as close to an ideal Porsche car as one can get. It is available either as a manual transmission model or one that has PDK. For those who opt for the manual version, the car offers more torque to it.
The new 911 GTS does not come cheap. At $120,050 it is expensive, though not as much as the 911 Turbo. It is still over and above the price of the Carrera S though. With its high price comes features that would be more than worth it.
It starts with the engine, which gives it 450 hp. The engine is a six-cylinder 3.8-liter twin turbo one that gives it much power. The car can go up to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. It is definitely much faster than the Carrera, though it still won't match that of the 911 Turbo, according to Auto Week.
Acceleration with the PDK variant is much better than that of the manual version. Its acceleration is seen to be much faster especially on Sports Plus mode,per Car and Driver. The PDK variant though would come with an additional $3,720 to the price.
Even if the PDK might accelerate better, Porsche has made improvements on the manual version. The manual gearbox has a more crisp feel to it than before. Most enthusiasts would also opt for the manual version than the PDK equipped one.
Overall, the Porsche 911 GTS is made for the track, though it will be more than enough on the street as well. It is a car that upholds the Porsche legacy. Another car that gives as much power without compromise is the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
