Up for auction is this exceptional 2018 991 Carrera GTS finished in Carmine Red over black. Bridging the gap between the Carrera S and GT3 model, the GTS offers high performance driving coupled with top-level trim and amenities. This one-owner example shows only 1k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction in showroom condition by its seller in Phoenix, Arizona.
Darker and purer than most Porsche Reds, the Carmine Red finish on the GTS is reported to be all-original and in like-new condition. Contrasted against factory black center-lock wheels and black model designation decals, the exterior color gives off an even more commanding presence. A couple of noteworthy exterior options include an electric slide/tilt sunroof as well as the desirable Sport Design Package.
Commanding an MSRP of over $145k, this 991 sports a handsomely equipped black leather and Alcantara interior. This interior is said to remain in exceptional condition with no notable flaws as indicated by the seller. Creature comforts include a heated multifunction Alcantara steering wheel, lane change assist, Bose surround sound system, and adaptive 18-way sport seats with memory package. An image of the complete build sheet detailing all options selected for this car will be provided in the photo gallery.
Power comes from a 3.0 L twin-turbocharged flat-six engine that sends approximately 450 HP to the rear wheels though a quick 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission. The 2018 GTS is reported to accelerate from 0-60 in only 3.5 seconds while maxing out at around 193mph. Optional rear axle steering, sport suspension (PASM) and Porsche dynamic chassis control (PDCC) make for a highly refined and responsive ride. Although this GTS has barely surpassed the engine break-in period, a full 10k mile service has recently been completed at an authorized dealership. This vehicle is being offered in excellent running order.
The sale of this 2018 991 GTS includes all original books and documentation, two sets of keys, service records, and a Clean Carfax report. Accompanied by a clear title, this vehicle stands ready for prompt delivery to a new owner. A brilliantly configured example, this 991 is a true head turner.
