New Porsche 911 GTS First Look!

The new 911 Carrera GTS is the first street-legal 911 equipped with a super-lightweight performance hybrid. It features a 1.9 kWh battery, adding only 50 kg to the GTS, and recharges quickly under braking and by harvesting exhaust gas pressure.

This powers two electric motors: one in the 8-speed PDK gearbox delivering a 55 hp boost and another winding up the turbocharger to eliminate turbo lag. The single turbocharger, combined with the 3.6L flat-six engine, produces 534 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque.

Performance-wise, the GTS T-Hybrid is incredibly fast, accelerating from 0-60 mph in 3 seconds with a top speed of 193 mph. For more information about the new 911, watch the video below from Top Gear!
