Porsche has opened its eighth Porsche Experience Center (PEC) worldwide in Franciacorta, Italy. The new brand experience venue covers approximately 60 hectares and includes the Autodromo di Franciacorta handling circuit.
The GTS model’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six produces 473 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, increases of 30 horsepower and 30 pound-feet over the Carrera S. An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is standard, and a seven-speed manual with a 0.4-inch-shorter shift lever is optional. Porsche claims a zero-to-60-mph time of 3.1 seconds from the automatic-equipped Carrera 4 GTS, though, in our test of the Carrera 4S, we reached that mark in 2.8 seconds. Porsche’s sport exhaust system is standard on the GTS models.
