2016 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS exterior
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.
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.
