New Car: 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS

Another day, another edition of the soon-to-be-replaced 911. This time the Carerra 4S Coupe and Cabriolet have received the GTS treament - to join the two-wheel drive GTS that went on sale in December 2010.

Besides the extra badges, the most notable change is an increase in power for the 3.8-litre flat-six engine - an additional 23bhp takes the output to 402bhp, sent to all four wheels. Fitted with the standard six-speed manual gearbox that's enough to send the coupe and cabriolet from 0-62mph in 4.6 and 4.8 seconds respectively, although 0.2 seconds can be shaved from those times if you opt for the PDK 'box.

Despite the boost in performance, fuel consumption is identical to the Carrera 4S at 26.9mpg, with CO2 emissions of 247g/km.

Compared to the standard 4S model, the GTS gains a Sport-Design front apron, with a black painted spoiler lip, and deeper side skirts. Inside there's sports seats as standard while 19-inch black RS Spyder alloys with a central wheel bolt add to the exterior aggression.

Other standard kit includes a rear limited slip differential, a switchable sports exhaust and a reflective strip between the tail lamps - the latter of which marks out all four-wheel drive models in the 911 range.

The 911 Carrera 4 GTS CoupĂ© and Cabriolet go on sale in the UK in July, priced from £83,145 for the CoupĂ© and £90,024 for the Cabriolet. For more details click here.
