Porsche Rive-Sud, your Porsche dealership from Montreal to Saint-Hubert, but also from Boucherville and Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville to Brossard, tells you all you need to know about the 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS in this test drive, which was carried out in order to offer you a detailed and accurate review!
Before we even climbed aboard, we were charmed by the sporty and confident design that only Germans know how to recreate efficiently. The new 2022 GTS definitely follows the Stuttgart manufacturer’s tradition in terms of looks, and yet, it brings with it new elements like alloy rims with central lock, distinctive LED lights, as well as GTS letters on the inferior door panels and at the rear of the vehicle.
For those who already know the 911 Carrera model, the 2022 GTS is even sportier with its prominent headlights and sharp taillights. Two hood blades add to the silhouette and the same can be said for the black rear bumper, which contrasts beautifully with the rest of the sporty body.
The new 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS exterior is simply to die for.
Unparalleled Technical Specifications
Under the hood you will find a 3.0-liter flat-six bi-turbo engine with 473 horsepower and 420 lb-ft. of maximum torque. This luxury sports car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/hr in 3.3 seconds, while still offering a maximum speed of 309 km/hr!
Since the engine is located at the rear of the vehicle, the trunk is in the front; as a result, luggage can be easily stowed away there before heading out for a mind-blowing weekend. With dimensions of 4 533 mm in length, 2 024 mm in width (including outside mirrors) and 1 301mm in height, the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS is the perfect size for a sports car. This feeling is reinforced by its aerodynamic shape which seems to give it wings!
Before we left for our 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS test drive, we took the time to enjoy a few first impressions about the cockpit. The interior is extremely refined. At the very center of the dashboard there is a compass: this means that aboard the Porsche 911, you’ll always be heading true North!
As for the dashboard, it will remind you of the racetrack while being extremely easy to read. The same can be said about the touchscreen, which contains all the necessary information for driving and entertainment. Moreover, for 2022 the German manufacturer introduced the new PCM 6 system (Porsche Communication Management), which incorporates Apple Music, Apple Podcast, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. With a navigation system that is faster than ever, accessing all the useful data that allows you to reach your destination easily, will be child’s play.
The upholstery is also extremely luxurious: Sport Plus leather adjustable and ergonomic seats will give you hours of pleasure and excitement. We were also impressed by the levels of comfort found throughout the entire interior. Finally, the Sport Chrono mode and center console are sure to impress.
Even if the Porsche 911 has been in existence since 1964, it will always remain timeless. Furthermore, it gains in popularity every year. Experts always place it at the top of the list for best luxury sports cars.
