With Porsche’s decision to reduce the wait time between the release of its coveted 911 variants — the past 911 model (internally referred to as the 997 and spanning from 2004 – 2013) took almost a decade to realize all versions including the 911 Carrera, 911 Turbo, 911 GT3 and Cabriolet equivalents – the German automotive manufacturer heads to the city of Berlin to give us a look at how this track-proven sports car performs on the streets. Positioned between the 911 Carrera S and GT3 model, the new 2015 Porsche 911 (991) Carrera GTS boasts a rear that is 44 mm wider than the Carrera S and sits up to 20 mm lower on a stiffer Active Suspension Management system (PASM). It includes increased stopping power via its six-piston calipers at the front and four-piston calipers at the rear. Featured in our recent “Creating Timeless Performance” video, where Errolson Hugh of Acronym shared his experiences with the automotive brand, the 911 Carrera GTS is back for a closer look.
Donned in optional Carmine red paint, the sleek body is contrasted by large 20-inch satin-black Turbo S wheels and matte-black air intake grilles. Powered by a 3.8-liter boxer engine, the car puts our 430 horsepower and is matched with a 7-speed manual gearbox. Directing all the exhuast from the rear-engine layout are black chrome twin tailpipes that produce distinct acoustics depending on the style of driving. Scroll through the images to catch the 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS as it transitions from day to night in Berlin.
