Also this time all the trims get both an all-wheel drive and a rear-wheel drive as well.

But the issue with the newest GTS version might be the price. As they come much better equipped and provide much better performance and options to the driver, the price also comes higher. This might prove to be a good option for the people who are feeling adventurous but who have the budget to back it up. As you can see from the pictures the car deserves it but let’s see the rest of the review to see the exact specs about the 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera 911.

Engine

What the new 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS engine provides for the car is the ability to reach a number of 430 hp. The coupe car reach a top speed of 190 mph using a rear-wheel drive and manual transmission option combined. Other configuration can only hope to achieve a top speed of 186 mph. This also means some great acceleration configuration as well. The Carrera GTS is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, using a seven speed gearbox, while it can go even faster and accelerate at 3.8 seconds with a seven-speed dual-clutch PDK automatic. The cabriolet options have the ability to go between 4.4 to 4.0 seconds.

There is no way to mistake this vehicle with its siblings from the other 911 line. This time the Porsche has done a remarkable job in designing the car and primping it up for the 2016 model year. The front fascia comes as an optional element but has a black rear air intake added, which is actually made to resemble the legendary 911 vehicles and only comes exclusive to the GTS model. A very stylish addition is the black 20-inch center-lock wheels that are added and because of this the AWD version comes with some larger and wider hips while the RWD version have a unique strip that actually connects the tailgates and only mimics the air intakes in this version.

It is an aggressive look but not so as much as you might expect it to be. It is toned down a bit but just in the right amount so it provides us something that we expect from a 911 vehicle. It is not too intimidating as the 911 Turbo, nor is it extreme like the GT3, but it has a balanced aggressive style which combines well with its performance features and specs and gives you what you are expecting from a car like this one.

Interior

The inside is all luxury and the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS has truly hit the nail right on the head with its interior design. It uses leather materials, actually the very comfortable Alcantara leather, and combines it with some suede trimmings to result with the most comfortable interior seating that you can expect from a car. Also the light color inside geos well for the entire concept and the design that the car has come up with. The design of the inside actually means that everything there has its own purpose. There have been no mistakes when designing this car and using all the added features and interior inclusion. The thin-rimmed wheel is one of the features that the car has received.

The seats are actually the racing buckets that have been found in 918 vehicle that are not only comfortable but are perfect for the racing car like this one. It also has the option spider cage that can be added but it actually does worse than it does good. It causes many problems when cleaning the windows actually and reduces the cargo space when used. All in all, the inside is driver orientated and it does not provide the comfort for the driver but also enables you to relax and enjoy the ride in your Carrera 911 car.

Price and release date

The release date for the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS is set to be in the beginning of the 2016 year. It may appear earlier in the end of this year but it is a long shot and not that possible but as the official release date is still not available it might be a possibility. We shall just have to wait and see. The price for the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS is given at $115,195, while the convertible option is provided for you at $127,095. This actually makes the car more affordable than other premium sports cars like the Nissan GT-R, McLaren 570S or the Acura NSX vehicles that are ranked high in the segment.

Under the hood, you should expect the vehicle to come with an upscale performance in order to match with the rest of the flamboyance exhibited in its exterior and interior department. The vehicle also comes fitted with an AWD system which is a boon particularly for those who reside in inclement regions of the country. On the flipside, though, the vehicle’s cargo room and passenger space are somehow cramped in comparison to the previous model which was conventionally styled and larger.

2016 Ferrari FF Coupe Release Date, News and Rumors

2016 Ferrari FF Coupe Release Date, Price, Review, Pictures – The Ferrari FF model is the first ever production model from the Italian automaker to features an all-wheel drive. It is actually a car which has an unusual and a completely untypical sedan shape for a vehicle coming from this automotive production company. The new release of the 2016 Ferrari FF coupe is a continuation of the brand that was first lunched and showcased to the world in 2011 at the Geneva Auto Show.

The FF is essentially a successor to the 612 Scaglietti vehicle and is a very untypical like tourer vehicle with near-supercar performance. The initial combination of an all-wheel drive, a combined hatchback-like design and a power output provided by a V-12 engine was something that characterized the FF coupe in the beginning. This time they are doing so much more with the 2016 model.

The announcement that the Ferrari FF is getting a facelift was confirmed with the appearance of the spy photos which showed us that a new version was in the making. It is going to be a fourth model of the FF from Ferrari and it is finally getting its much deserved facelift. Although the data about the specs and additions is scarce, we have managed to provide some of them in the review. Look at the recently released pictures that we have managed to provide and see how the car is going to be perceived like. The focused attention when making this car is keeping a close eye on some of the competition vehicles which in this case certainly has to be the 2016 Porsche 911 car.

2016 Ferrari FF coupe exterior

Based on the currently reveled photos of the 2016 Ferrari FF, it is going to features a somewhat revised exterior. Perhaps the outer design is not going to change that much and the car is going to retain the familiar shape that it used to have, there are going to be some minor upgrades and tweaks. The car already has a familiar look, one which is recognizable to most with the exterior that can make any person turn its head when the car appears. A Ferrari is a Ferrari and the FF uses this to its advantage as much as it can. But to enhance the new version it appears that the most changes have been concentrated to the front part of the car. First and foremost, the grille is going to be shorter than before. This will not affect the performance in any way but it will make the car more serious looking than before.

The bumper has been revised as well and it shows some gaps that were not present there before. The air intakes that have been added are placed there to provide more cooling to the brakes and are more a useful feature than an aesthetic one. The front fascia is the most changed part of the car so far and we will get to see a better picture when the car actually gets released. The back part of the car is identical, except for the added diffuser. It makes the car prettier like that and give is a sporty feel. As the production progresses there are bound to be more upgrades, but till now these are the known ones and we hope to find out more soon.

Interior

As there are no information available about the 2016 Ferrari FF coupe vehicle, we can only assume how they are going to update it. It is perhaps suitable to keep the design of the inside intact. The previous look was already a good one and the useful characteristics were already a great way for the inside appearance of the car.

What the car will mostly get and should get for its mid-cycle refresh are some new colors options inside and some comfier upholsteries. A leather option will also be nice so we hope that it does make it to the production vehicle. An update cannot go without an infotainment system updated so we predict that some new technological features are bound to appear inside the car.

Engine

Inside the car is where the most changes will appear and we expect to see a new and improved Ferrari FF with more fire power. First and foremost, the 6.3-liter V-12 will return for this year, but it will be tweaked up and upgraded in order to provide more power. It may stand at an output of 700 ponies and 530 pound-feet. This should enable the car to speed up to 60 mph in 3 seconds flat and give it a top speed rating of 211 mph.

A much more bigger news is that there is a great possibility that the car is going to also use a 3.9-liter V-8 developed turbocharged engine. This is something that is already used in the California T model, so why not add it here. This car may produce some more carbon-dioxide emissions, but it will also return with some better fuel economy specs, and as it makes 560  hp in the California T we expect it to make at least 550 hp in the Ferrari FF. Both engine trims will certainly come with a four-wheel-drive system and a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Price and release date

2016 Ferrari FF Coupe release date

As this is mostly based on the leaked information, spy photos and scarce releases from Ferrari, we are not certain when the exact release date is going to be. Ferrari is keeping quiet about it and it seems that they will be ready to talk about it more when the vehicle’s production nears completion. As for the price, the price tag of $300,000 for the previous model is a good basis for the next one as well. The Ferrari 488 GTB may score higher than the FF version, but certainly poses a great design and setup for the model.
