Cool Cars GNR News Edition | June 26th 2021

Our bi-weekly newsletter - presenting the best of Great North Road.

Featuring: Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini, Lexus, McLaren, Porsche and Volkswagen.

Welcome to Cool Cars - GNR News Edition, 

 

Very few things truly stand the test of time, but one that has is the Porsche 911. 

The most recognisable automotive silhouette has remained unchanged for 58 years, and so too has the rear engine layout. Under the skin there has been constant improvement, and even Porsche gave in to water cooling back in 1998. 

My favourite addition was the introduction of the GTS models twelve years ago. For me, GTS is the sweet spot on every single Porsche model, offering great performance with just a hint of reserve at the same time. 

With 353kW, the Carrera 4 GTS will dispatch 0-100 in 3.3 seconds, and thanks to the high-performance braking system from the 911 turbo, it stops even faster. The style is just-right also; from the slightly lower ride height to those super cool centre-lock wheel hubs. 

The full 911 GTS range (including Targa and Cabriolet) is now available for order at Giltrap Porsche. 

I hope you enjoy all the cars on this edition of Cool Cars – GNR News and do make sure you pop in to 119GNR and enjoy a coffee on me every Saturday from 9-11.

 

Have a great weekend.
