2023 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet America coming late this year
The special edition receives a red-white-and-blue styling treatment from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, the automaker’s car customization unit. Its Azure Blue 356 exterior color is inspired by the 1953 356 America Roadster.
The multicolored RS Spyder Design Wheels are finished with the interior portion of the spokes in white and the outermost flat surfaces in silver and a Guards Red pinstripe along the edge of the rim.
Illuminated doorsill plates commemorate the 70th anniversary of the 356 America Roadster. Along the doors, decals with Guards Red accents read “America.”
The model designation on the rear features “911 Carrera” in a shade of white, which Porsche refers to as Pebble Grey. And the “GTS” is in Guards Red.
The windshield frame is finished in Satin Black.
“We wanted to have the appearance of the classic roadsters where the windscreen frame looks very small, very narrow,” Boris Apenbrink, director of Exclusive Manufaktur Vehicles, said during a media roundtable last week. “We achieved this by foiling the windscreen frame in black.”
Producing this effect was not without challenges.
“Until now, no 992 existed with a black windscreen frame,” Apenbrink said. “So we needed to adjust a specific station inside the production process where special workers foiled the windscreen frame in black.”
