Porsche 911 GTS - Five New Models
You can make a good case that the Porsche 911 family already has enough models.
The result is better performance from all the GTS models, but the quickest of the lot is the Carrera 4 coupe, which dismisses the 0-62mph sprint in 3.6 seconds; and, like all GTS models, has a top speed of more than 190mph. As well as taking top speed honours, the dual clutch PDK equipped version of the 911 Carrera GTS also boasts the lowest consumption and emissions of the new line-up, with a claimed 8.3L/100km on the European test cycle giving it a Carbon dioxide rating of 188g/km.
The big news with the new range of 911 GTS models comes in two fronts.
In our testing, a rear-drive 370-hp 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera with the manual transmission reached 60 miles per hour in just 3.9 seconds and completed the quarter mile in 12.3 seconds at 114.7 miles per hour.
Samsung set to launch limited batch of Galaxy S8 'earlier than expected'

Porsche is launching five new 911 GTS models, including rear- and four-wheel drive versions of the Carrera and Carrera Cabriolet, bringing the 911 lineup to a staggering 25 variants.
All the GTS models, irrespective of how many wheels are driven, are based on the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 chassis, measuring 1852mm across the rear wheel-arches, with active suspension management and 10mm lowered suspension as standard issue.
That's the obvious appeal of having updated versions of the 911 GTS. All new models gain upgraded visuals and more power under the hood.
There are probably some people out there who don't share in my sentiment, but I'm going to hold firm on it.
