Still, 20 percent of its cars will adopt the standard internal combustion engine, staying true to its heritage and original brand. The 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet America Edition pays homage to the company’s legacy 70 years ago, when Porsche’s car gained exceptional traction in the country and established itself in the global vehicle industry.
