Eurocars, the official agent of Porsche cars in Sri Lanka officially launched the new 911 Targa 4 GTS recently in the presence of 911 sportscar enthusiasts in Colombo. The 911 Targa 4 GTS is the newest model to be included in the Porsche 911 sportscar range and stands out not only for its technology, but also its visual design.

The 911 Targa 4 GTS sportscar is for even greater sporting dynamics, but nonetheless suitable for everyday use. In addition to its performance-orientated features, the model boasts a high trim level. The vehicle is based on the wide all-wheel-drive chassis, which measures 1852 mm. The new Sport Design front apron emphasises the sporty character and the front end is aerodynamically optimised. A low front spoiler and increased rear spoiler extension height further reduce the lift forces on the front and rear axle compared to the Carrera S models. 

On the rear, the 911 Targa 4 GTS is unmistakable: smoked tail lights, silk-gloss black air intake grille and central black twin tailpipes of the sports exhaust system, which is included as standard. Sport Design exterior mirrors, 20-inch wheels with central locking device painted in silk-gloss black, plus GTS logos on the doors complete the side view. The characteristic Targa bar, which is supplied in black for the first time on the GTS, also lends the 911 Targa a particularly distinctive look.

Five variants are available under the 911 GTS range: the 911 Carrera GTS with rear-wheel drive, the 911 Carrera 4 GTS with all-wheel drive – both of the above available as a Coupé and Cabriolet – and the 911 Targa 4 GTS with all-wheel drive. A newly developed turbocharger for 3.0-litre six-cylinder flat engine increases power to 331 kW (450 PS). The engine delivers 22 kW (30 hp) more than the 911 Carrera S and 15 kW (20 hp) more than the corresponding GTS prior model with a naturally aspirated engine. All variants are available with a manual seven-gear transmission or optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).

Taking sides – on the side of the law

Monday, 19 November 2018

I am under criticism for “taking sides” in the ongoing dispute between the UNF and UPFA. Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has accused me thus: “Yesterday a commissioner from the Elections Commission went to the Supreme Court saying that the P

I have rarely if ever empathised with the Sri Lanka Police Department. But when I saw those hapless cops ducking chilli bombs in Parliament, my heart went out to those whom I had previously seen as simply being PC Plods or Mr Goons. Sorry to say that

Leaving aside the legalities, politicalities, constitutionalities and the complexities of the current imbroglio in which the nation is grounded (temporarily), the underlying issues in the constitutional crisis can be reduced to one single question: a
