2022 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet https://youtu.be/nlCYqC8VUrM

With transcendent driving traits and terrific twin-turbo flat-six engines, the 2022 Porsche 911 is a nearly flawless sports car. Apart from being too expensive for most enthusiasts, Porsche's iconic two-plus-two-seater is as immersive as it is versatile. Along with the aforementioned flat-six which produces a distinctive snarl and makes between 379 and 473 horsepower­­–we review the higher-powered GT3 and Turbo variants separately­–the lineup offers a quick-shifting dual-clutch automatic or a manual transmission and rear- or all-wheel drive. The latter ensures its incredible performance can be enjoyed in all four seasons. The 911 comes in coupe, cabriolet (read: convertible), or quasi-convertible Targa body styles. The beauty of the 911 is that its athleticism doesn't diminish its livability. Its ride is surprisingly civil considering its cornering limits and race car-like steering feel. Its interior is roomy up front and can be lavishly appointed. And its driver is treated to a satisfyingly low seating position but also excellent outward visibility.
For 2022, the GTS trim level joins the 911 family. Along with a 473-hp version of the lineup's ubiquitous twin-turbo flat-six, it's available with an eight-speed automatic or seven-speed manual transmission and rear- or all-wheel drive. The GTS is offered in all three body styles, too. Its most notable features include a specially tuned suspension as well as 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels with black center locks as seen on the 911 Turbo. Likewise, the GTS inherits larger iron brake rotors from the top-tier Turbo. There's also a lightweight package that removes the rear seats and adds carbon-fiber front buckets, lighter glass, and a rear-wheel-steering system. The 2022 911 receives Porsche's latest infotainment software, including new features such as Android Auto.
Based on our experience with myriad 911 models, we can confidently recommend the Carrera S. It boasts 64 horses more than the standard Carrera, and we'd be happy with either the engaging manual transmission or the snappier dual-clutch automatic. Those who want to enjoy their 911 year-round but have to deal with slippery winter conditions can add all-wheel drive for $7300 if you feel four winter tires aren't enough. We're content with the coupe body style, especially since the cabriolet costs almost $13,000 more. We'd also opt for the Sport Chrono package that adds launch control, additional drive modes, and more. The Sport Seats Plus provide more supportive front buckets, and the Sport package adds a lowered suspension and a louder exhaust system.
