Vanquishing Mountains in the new 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS by Arthur St. Antoine

RealAutoTips. - This is information for you from Porsche 911 car with the article that titled with Vanquishing Mountains in the new 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS that written by Arthur St. Antoine and published in Automobilemag site.

Most climbers passing 8,000 feet would feel the first effects of altitude-induced hypoxia, but the new Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS I’m driving doesn’t even seem to notice. It’s accelerating as if it were breathing at sea level — no lag in response, no huffing for air, just a seamless surge of furious speed.

Then again, this 911 sports the automotive equivalent of an oxygen mask: forced-induction turbocharging. There are two turbos, in fact, and on the GTS they’re huge, with a 3-millimeter larger turbine and a 4-millimieter larger housing than the ones found in the 911 Carrera S. Also, boost pressure is up from 16 psi in the Carrera S to 18 in the GTS. With all that life-giving, speed-boosting O2 rammed down its throat, it’s no wonder that even up here the 3.0-liter flat-six feels as utterly unperturbed as Reinhold Messner loosening-up on an indoor climbing wall.

Snow carpets the nearby landscape — but not the road — as the smooth tarmac wriggles higher and higher, the GTS cutting from corner to corner, g forces rolling from side to side and front to back as I work the steering wheel, brakes, throttle, and the fabulous 7-speed manual gearbox. Man is this rig tight. My test car is an all-wheel-drive Carrera 4 GTS coupe, and it feels as bonded to the asphalt as the paint stripes firing like yellow tracer rounds at my windshield. But of course it does.
