Porsche 911 GTS Model Lineup

Porsche 911 GTS Lineup

The Porsche 911 GTS has been called the best value for a 911. It sits between the 911 Carrera S and the GT3 in the lineup and offers plenty of options as standard that would cause a Carrera S to cost more than the GTS. Porsche has expanded the 991.2 model lineup of the 911 to include a new GTS model.

The 911 GTS is available as a Carrera GTS (rear-wheel drive) and Carrera 4 GTS (all-wheel drive). It is available in coupe, cabriolet and targa forms.

A 2005 Ford GT was the Top Seller at Anaheim Auction

Just a few days ago (November 12th – 14th) Mecum had their classic and collector car auction in Anaheim, California. The auction was very successful and saw 416 cars sold which totaled $13,853,225 in sales.

The auction featured some wonderful foreign and domestic automobiles. The top seller was a 2005 Ford GT that sold for $270,000. That’s not bad for a car that just 10 years ago sold new for $149,995. Keep an eye on these Ford GT prices as now may be the time to buy before prices skyrocket (they are already high, but at this rate they could double in just a few years time).

Owning a Ferrari is the dream of many sports car enthusiasts. The prancing horse is one of the few badges that say that you have really made it.

Even though most Ferraris are very expensive to purchase one on the used market you can get an affordable car from the Italian performance car maker (at least affordable by Ferrari standards). One model that is more attainable is the 308 GTB / GTS (the GTB is the hard top Berlinetta and the GTS is the targa top). But just because they can be found for under $60,000 (some examples can cost around $30,000 or less, but those will take some searching to find) doesn’t mean you can afford one.

The Porsche Macan Gets The GTS Treatment

Porsche has announced the new Macan GTS. The compact SUV will get the GTS treatment which means a bit better performance and some optional items made standard over lower trimmed cars.

It is interesting to watch as the German performance car maker has added the once sacred GTS badge to each model in its current lineup. The GTS versions of each model are some of the best available and they are a good value compared to other optioned up models. But does having the GTS badge on the non-sports cars dilute it? Has it now become just a trim level or is it still special?
