Porsche, the German sports car maker has revealed the special edition 911 GTS Club Coupe that will be launched in the US in June 2015 but the automaker is just building 60 units of the special edition sports car that can be booked only by the members of the Porsche Club of America. Of the 60 cars, 59 units will be sold to the members of the Porsche Club of America at a price tag of Rs. 84 lakh and the 60th car will be gifted to one of the members of the Club. Porsche is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.
The Porsche 911 GTS Club Coupe will be powered by a 430-horsepower Carrera S engine (the same engine is also available in the 911 Carrera GTS model) and this latest variant in Porsche’s lineup will sport a wider body. When equipped with the optional PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) dual-clutch 7-speed transmission, the GTS Club Coupe can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. A third center radiator maintains consistent performance throughout and a standard Sport Exhaust system adds more prominence to the Boxer engine.
The limited edition of the 911 GTS Club Coupe will be available only in ‘Club Blau’ shade. The latest variant will feature black frames around bi-xenon headlights, black chrome exhaust outlets and tinted taillights, 20-inch Sport Classic Wheels, vintage inspired ducktail rear spoiler.
Inside the limited edition coupe will be the GTS Interior Package. Befitting the limited edition concept, the automaker has embossed the center compartment lid with a ‘60’ and the dashboard trim has been personified with “GTS Club Coupe 60 Years Porsche Club of America”. The seat belts, rev counter and stitching are held in contrasting Carmine Red and the carmaker has given carbon fiber finish to the door trim, dashboard trim strips and center console. The steering wheel gets a Red 12 o’clock marker and a two tone stitching in blue and Carmine Red.
Adding on to the car’s optimal handling characteristics are the Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the Sport Chrono Package with dynamic engine mounts.
