Porsche has revealed its plans to premiere a new beast model from the Carrera lineup at this year's Paris Motor Show. Designed to close the gap between the Carrera S and the powerful 911 GT3 with 435 horsepower, the new 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS will boast an estimated output of 408 horsepower backed by extraordinary dynamics and emphatically sporty equipment.

On the outside, the new Porsche GTS will benefit from a 44 millimeter wider Carrera 4 body featuring a wider track with a classic rear-wheel drive. In addition to that, a set of sleek black 19-inch centre-mount RS Spyder wrapped in 305/30 ZR 19 tires on the rear axle underlines even more the enhanced performance of the pure-blooded sports car. Further details on the outer dress include: a SportDesign front apron with spoiler edge, unique sideskirts, as well as Carrera GTS logotype on the doors and the rear lid.

In performance terms, the 2011 Porsche Carrera 911 GTS will be offered with a 3.8-litre flat engine linked to a six-speed manual transmission as standard. Upon customer request, a seven-speed PDK will be also featured. Thanks these elements, the new car will be able to sprint from standstill to 100 km/h for only 4.2 seconds, equipped with PDK and a Sport Chrono Package Plus in Sport Plus mode.

Available from December in Germany, the 911 Carrera GTS Coupe will be priced at 104,935 Euro, incl VAT, while the Cabriolet version will be offered at 115,050 Euro.
