Alongside the GT3 RS 4,0 that was uncovered a few weeks ago, the company will offer another GTS model, this time with four-wheel drive. The Carrera 4 GTS keeps the same 3,8-litre flat-six engine, however. It delivers 300 kW and 420 N.m of torque, enough to power it from standstill to 100 km/h in 4,6 seconds. The heavier cabriolet version takes 0,2 seconds longer to reach the same speed.
As its name suggests, this latest limited edition GT3 RS features a 4,0-litre flat six engine, the biggest unit yet to find its way into a 911. Delivering 368 kW at 8 250 r/min and 460 N.m at 5 750 r/min this engine can trace many of its roots to the race engine. Some of the parts of the racing car, such as the crankshaft have been lifted directly from the racecar’s engine.
