  2017 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet Manual Perhaps the most versatile member of a diverse lineup.All of those variations might confuse the issue, but each of them is a different take on excellence. Take the 911 GTS cabriolet tested here. It’s not entirely unfair to view the GTS as an elaborate option package, albeit one composed of some parts that are otherwise unavailable on the regular Carrera S. It starts with the body of the all-wheel-drive 911 Carrera 4, which is 1.7 inches broader than the rear-drive shell. Then toss in the PASM sport suspension and satin-black 20-inch center-lock wheels from the Turbo S. The latter are wider than the Carrera S’s by a half-inch both front (9.

Like the mechanically identical 2019 Mercedes-AMG CLS53, the E53 coupe and cabriolet are powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six producing a stout 429 horsepower at 6100 rpm and 384 lb-ft of torque from 1800 to 5800 rpm. Helping the straight-six achieve that output is a hybrid-assist system using a 48-volt primary electrical system called EQ Boost. An electric compressor and a combination starter/alternator serve up an extra 21 horsepower and 184 lb-ft. In essence, EQ Boost is similar to Audi’s hybrid-assist system in the 2019 A8, but instead of a starter/alternator driven off an engine belt, Mercedes uses an electric motor mounted between the engine and the nine-speed automatic. The starter/alternator powers the electric supercharger to peak boost in milliseconds, minimizing lag before the standard turbo awakes.

The inline-six has a couple more interesting features. Since the 12-volt battery is a secondary system wired to the 48-volt battery, which in turn is recharged by the starter/alternator, Mercedes deleted the auxiliary belt on the engine’s front side. Filling the space is an exhaust aftertreatment system so the catalytic converters can warm up as quickly as possible, a setup Mercedes introduced on its new family of diesel inline-fours; there’s also a particulate filter (yes, for a gasoline engine) located just downstream.

The E53’s 4Matic+ badge denotes the standard AMG-tuned all-wheel-drive system that can route torque entirely to the rear wheels. Mercedes also reinforced both axles, revised the steering knuckles, and dialed in more negative camber. An adaptive air-spring suspension, AMG Ride Control+, comes standard. Mercedes estimates a zero-to-60-mph time of 4.3 seconds for the E53 coupe and 4.4 seconds for the convertible. Top speed is limited to 130 mph.

A sunny California day with four high-dollar two-door GermansAs trivial as it may sound, that left turn could gone disastrously wrong in a previous generation of Mercedes-AMG's immensely powerful S65 Coupe. It's taken years for the boys in Affalterbach to tweak the formula for their 12-cylinder top dog, obfuscated by the simple (and decidedly First World) issue of how to wrangle ungodly amounts of torque—in this case, a stunning 738 lb-ft (or 1,000 newton-meters) of rotation from the handbuilt, 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12.
