Next week’s 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show will see the official premier of the 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, the variant that will plug the existing range gap between the mild-mannered Carrera S and the corner-carving GT3.
The Porsche 911 Carrera GTS will be available as a coupe or cabrio, with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. Porsche’s Sport Chrono package, and a few other performance-enhancing features, will come as standard equipment, and the 3.8-liter flat-6 will churn out a claimed 430 horses — up about 30 from the (equally sized) unit powering the Carrera S.
Not as hardcore or track-centered as the GT3 model above it in the Type 991 range, the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS will hopefully provide a capable, middle-ground balance of performance and comfort for those customers hoping to find the best-performing 911 for grand touring purposes.
The curtain lifts on the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS — as well as the new Cayenne GTS and Panamera Executive Exclusive Series — at the 2014 Los Angeles International Auto Show on November 19th, at 3:05 pm (ET).
