Porsche Cars North America is celebrating six decades of the largest Porsche club organisation with a very special model called the GTS Club Coupe. The limited production run of just 60 cars is actually based on the popular 911 Carrera GTS. The sports car gets a unique colour to this model appropriately named “Club Blau,” which was created exclusively for this anniversary edition by the Porsche Club of America.
The tweaked Carrera S engine performing duty in the GTS Club Sport generates 430bhp of power and is capable of propelling the car from standstill to 96kmph in just 3.8 seconds when equipped with the optional PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox. The top whack achievable is 305.7kmph on the PDK equipped versions with a standard Sport Exhaust system with black chrome tips amplifying the experience from that boxer engine.
GTS Club Coupe is 44mm wider than the 911 Carrera 4 models with a rear wheel drive setup. Porsche’s Dynamic light system gets black framed Bi-Xenon headlights and the taillights also get black tints. Adding to sheer class is the beautiful “ducktail” rear spoiler and massive 20 inch Sport Classic wheels painted in semi-gloss black with polished wheel centres and rim flanges.
“The Porsche Club of America is home to passionate ambassadors who have been fostering the appreciation and recognition of Porsche for 60 years,” said Andre Oosthuizen, Vice President, Marketing, Porsche Cars North America. “We are proud and honoured to celebrate this anniversary with a very special edition of Porsche's most storied sports car - the 911”, he added.
Inside the GTS the stitching, seat belts, and rev counter are held in contrasting Carmine Red, while the dashboard trim strips, door trim and centre console are finished in carbon fibre. The centre compartment lid is embossed with a “60” and the dashboard trim is personalized with “GTS Club Coupe 60 Years Porsche Club of America” lettering above the glove compartment.
Stainless steel door sills which read “GTS Club Coupe” serve as a further distinction. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), incorporating adaptive dampers and a 10 mm lower ride, and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), as well as the Sport Chrono Package with dynamic engine mounts, contributes to the car’s optimal handling characteristics. The price for all this glory is nearly Rs 84.5lakh (excluding customs and duties).
