2012 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS PDK Coupe: Exalting performance parameters tied in with acute 911 GT-esque dynamism whilst encapsulated by assertive athleticism and acoustically defined by an adrenaline expelling exhaust note, uniformly unite to shape the spirit and personality of the expressively exhilarant GTS. Though lively-natured, it's also very livable with daily practicality in mind. With the GTS, you're able to have an encounter with a Carrera in its most effervescently exploited form.
Because this GTS is equipped with the optioned Sport Chrono Package Plus and the "rapid-fire-gear-changes-without-zero-power-interruption" PDK transmission, it not only allows for a reduction in the time that it takes to go from 0-60 (the coupling of the duo allows for a time of approximately 4.2 seconds) but the intensification of one's heart-rate increases exponentially as you're granted the Sport Plus button. When pressed, euphoric motorsport-channeled characteristics never felt so tangible as it allows for racetrack-enhanced traits such as Launch Control to be made available while the PDK system experiences immensely decreased shift times and favorable shift points for peak acceleration.
