At the LA Motor Show later this month, in addition to the Cayenne GTS, Porsche will officially present the latest version of the 911 Carrera GTS, which is slated to go on sale before the end of the year.

This second-generation 911 Carrera GTS is offered in four versions (coupe or convertible, with and without all-wheel drive) and comes closer than the first to the track-going 911 GT3. With its 430hp engine, the sports car boasts 0 to 100km/h acceleration in just 4 seconds (4.2 seconds for the convertible) and a top speed of 300km/h.

The suspension has been lowered by 10mm and features Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). Customers can also take advantage of the Sport Chrono Package, which includes special dynamic engine mounts and other performance-focused features. Bi-xenon headlights and a special sports exhaust are also available.

In the US, the Carrera GTS Coupe will be priced starting at $115,195, and the Carrera GTS Cabriolet (convertible) at $127,095. The all-wheel drive models are priced starting at $121,895 and $133,795 respectively. The new sports cars are due to arrive at dealerships in late November, just after premiering at the Los Angeles Motor Show.
