New 2025 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet in Ice Grey Metallic

New 2025 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet in Ice Grey Metallic

Porsche has a knack for making significant changes during car facelifts, and the updated 992-chassis 911 is no exception. The big news for 2025 is that the 911 is going hybrid. The new Carrera GTS model combines the iconic rear-mounted flat-six engine with an electric motor and electric turbocharger, resulting in an impressive 532 horsepower and 449 pound-feet of torque. This model is expected to be available by the end of the year. The Carrera GTS features a new 3.6-liter flat-six engine, replacing the previous 3.0-liter unit, which will still be used in other 911 models. This new engine alone produces 478 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, a slight increase over the previous GTS engine. The hybrid system allows Porsche to replace the twin turbo setup with a single electric turbocharger. This electric turbocharger, powered by an 11-kW motor, can quickly spin up for fast response, significantly reducing turbo lag while also recharging the 400-volt battery. Additionally, a 32.6-hp traction motor is positioned between the flat-six engine and the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Both components are powered by a small 1.9-kWh battery located under the front hood, where the 12-volt battery is usually found in other 911 models. The 12-volt battery is relocated to a compartment behind the rear parcel shelf. This powertrain is designed to enhance performance across the rev range while maintaining an optimal air-fuel ratio of 14.7:1 almost all the time. Overall, the new Carrera GTS is 103 pounds heavier than its predecessor due to additional standard features, including rear-wheel steering, but the increased power more than makes up for it. It’s the first 911 Carrera model to achieve a sub-3-second 0-60 mph time, with a 2.9-second sprint. Besides the T-Hybrid system, the Carrera GTS also boasts new active aerodynamic flaps at the front to improve cooling without increasing drag. The front and rear fascias have been slightly redesigned, new wheel options are available, and the rear tires are now 10 mm wider at 315/30ZR21, while the front tires remain at 245/35ZR20. Inside, the most notable change is the introduction of an all-digital gauge cluster, replacing the analog tachometer. However, the digital cluster still prominently displays the tachometer, keeping with 911 tradition. The base Carrera model also receives updates for 2025, incorporating the turbos and intercoolers from the previous GTS and Turbo models. There’s a nine-hp increase, though torque remains the same at 331 lb-ft. The same facelift changes apply to the base Carrera, but the fascias differ from those of the GTS and lack the active cooling flaps. For 2025, only the base Carrera and Carrera GTS models have been facelifted, with more to follow. The base Carrera will be available as a rear-wheel-drive coupe or Cabriolet, while the GTS will come in rear- or all-wheel-drive coupe or Cabriolet, or as an all-wheel-drive Targa. The Turbo, Turbo S, and GT3 RS models will continue into 2025 as well. Prices have increased across the board, with the base Carrera rising from $116,050 to $122,095, and the GTS increasing from $152,550 to $166,895. These price jumps are significant, but Porsche emphasizes the added performance and standard features, especially on the GTS. Facelifted 992 Carreras should arrive at dealerships this fall, with the Carrera GTS arriving closer to the end of the year. Expect the 992.2 range to expand with many more models, both hybrid and otherwise, in the near future.
