Porsche has announced the arrival of the all-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4 and 4S models that will be available for the coupe and the cabriolet versions. These two feature the company’s active AWD Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system and have 22mm wider rear wheel arches in comparison to their two-wheel drive counterparts.
As standard, these models come with a 7-speed manual gearbox while for more money clients can opt for the 7-speed PDK twin-clutch automatic transmission. The Porsche 911 Carrera 4 is powered by a flat-six 3.4-liter engine that produces 350 hp (257 kW / 354 PS) which is enough for a 0-62 mph sprint in 4.5 seconds (4.7 seconds for the cabriolet) and a maximum speed of 177 mph (175 mph for the cabriolet).
The Porsche 911 Carrera 4S comes with a flat-six 3.8-liter unit with 400 hp (294 kW / 405 PS) that propels the car to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds (0.2 seconds more for the cabrio) and a top speed of 186 mph (184 mph for the cabrio).
These new models will make their first public appearance at the Paris Motor Show in September, before going on sale towards the end of the year. Prices start from 77,924 pounds for the Carrera 4 Coupe, followed by the Carrera 4 Cabriolet at 86,583 pounds, the Carrera 4S Coupe at 87,959 pounds and the Carrera 4S Cabriolet at 96,619 pounds.
