Best of the Best 2011: Convertibles: Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet

  • Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet

    With 20 variations in the current model line, Porsche offers a full menu of 911 flavors. Purists can skip over the Turbos and Targas and stop at the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet (www.porsche.com). Essentially a harder-core version of the Carrera S, the rear-wheel-drive, rear-engine GTS churns out 23 more horsepower—for a total of 408—from a 3.8-liter flat-six boxer motor. A 1.7-inch wider body, center-lock RS-style wheels, and GTS badges visually distinguish this $112,900 model from its next of kin. Alcantara interior trim similar to the GT3’s comes standard, for purists who enjoy a little pampering.
