The Porsche special series dedicated to the stars and stripes market continues in the footsteps of tradition. A lucky, and appreciated, dedication that began in 1952 when the 356 America Roadster was produced in 16 units on the recommendation of the importer of the Stuttgart brand Max Hoffman. A project which then served as the basis for the subsequent 356 Speedster and which was (re) celebrated in 1992 with the 964 America Roadster (built in only 250 units). Retracing the same cadence, the 70 years since its debut are the occasion for a new limited edition version: 911 Carrera Gts Cabriolet America edition. Developed in collaboration between the Porsche exclusive Manufaktur department and Porsche North America, it has unique aesthetic customizations and a technical-mechanical approach that favors the “classic” pleasure of driving. The price is $ 184,920 (€ 176,800).

Dedicated aesthetics

To underline the celebratory anniversary of the initiative, Porsche consulted its historical archives to recover the colors proposed (70 years ago) with the 356 America Roadster. The research gave birth to the Azure Blue 356 color that defines the entire bodywork and is enhanced by the contrasts with the Satin Black for the edge of the windshield and the wheels with white Rs Spyder design and silver and Guards Red details. The Gts logo on the tail is white with Guards Red elements while inside the black leather dominates with double stitching with Guard Red and Pebble Gray inserts. On the door sill the three dates that recall the origin of the America edition: 1952, 1992, 2022.

“Classic” guide

Being a tribute to the past, the technical scheme proposed by Porsche wants to express a “classic” taste in driving. Rear-wheel drive and seven-speed manual gearbox, then. This is the only configuration available to customers who will purchase the Gts Cabriolet America Edition. Under the rear bonnet, however, there is the 3.0-liter twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine with 480 HP, the same as the production 911 Gts. Without modifications. Numerous equipment is included as standard to improve driving dynamics: electronic Pasm suspension, rear-axle steering, the Sport Chrono package, the sports exhaust and the Pccb carbon-ceramic braking system with 408 mm front discs.
