Porsche expands 911 lineup for 2020
The new 911 made its debut last year as the 992 generation of the famous sports coupe. First they showed off the standard 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera Cabriolet. Now it's the 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet models' turn.
Both models are powered by the same twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat six-cylinder engine that the 911 Carrera is, but it has model-specific turbochargers that give it 379 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and accelerates from zero to 60 mph in four seconds flat in the coupe. If that's not fast enough for you, you can opt for the Sport Chrono Package and drop that time to 3.8 seconds.
The Carrera 4 Cabriolet isn't as quick, getting to 60 mpg in 4.2 seconds and in four seconds flat when equipped with the available Sport Chrono Package.
The coupe and cabrio top out at 180 and 179 mph, respectively.
Both models come standard with Normal and Sport drive modes, as well as Wet Mode preconditioning technology. A fully variable, electronically controlled limited slip rear differential with torque vectoring technology, which is standard on the 911 Carrera S and 4S models, can be ordered as an option.
Both models have 19-inch wheels in the front and 20-inchers in the rear. Buyers can up those diameters by an inch each by checking an options box.
A 10.9-inch infotainment touch screen is standard and is paired with a control panel of buttons and toggle switches to control various functions.
The 2020 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet are available to order now and are expected to arrive at U.S. dealerships in early 2020. The MSRP for the 911 Carrera 4 is $104,700, while the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet retails for $117,500. Both models come with an additional $1,350 delivery, processing and handling fee.
