By Auto News Log • September 29th, 2011

The message is clear and unmistakable: force, power and dynamics. With direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus, the uprated 3.8 liter six-cylinder rear engine of the 911 Carrera GTS models generates 408 hp at 7,300 rpm. Maximum torque is 310 lb.-ft.

A top track speed of 190 mph is achieved by the rear-wheel models and 188 mph by the models with all-wheel drive. The Coupe models accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, the Cabriolet models in 4.6. The optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) further improves acceleration, reducing these times to 4.2 and 4.4 seconds respectively. The throttle response is more direct and acceleration is sportier. The engine power is 23 hp higher than that of the 911 Carrera S models. This was made possible by the redesigned intake manifold, the modified cylinder heads and the optimized engine electronics.
