Porsche unveils limited-edition 911 Carrera GTS Club Coupe

By ,

Celebrating six decades of the largest Porsche club organization in the world, Porsche Cars North America is commemorating this milestone with a 60-unit, limited-production run of the Club Coupe based on the 911 Carrera GTS. 

Known as the GTS Club Coupe, the rear-wheel-drive, 430-horsepower sports car is painted in a colour unique to this model appropriately named “Club Blau,” which was created exclusively for this anniversary edition by the Porsche Club of America. It's 44mm wider than the 911 Carrera 4, and features black-ringed xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS). Blacked-out taillights, SportDesign mirrors, and a Club Coupe on the door panels complete the exterior.

The interior is highlighted by the GTS Interior Package. 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.

Powering the GTS Club Coupe is an enhanced version of the Carrera S engine, which is also found in the 911 Carrera GTS model variants. Acceleration from standstill to 60 mph (96 km/h) takes just 3.8 seconds when equipped with the optional PDK transmission.

The GTS Club Coupe will be launched in the U.S. in June 2015 at a price of $136,060, not including a destination charge of $995.
