Porsche has launched in Paris the all-wheel drive versions of the 911 Carrera, in both coupe and convertible forms.

Announced at the end of August, Porsche’s 911 4 and 4S have made their public debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. Both models come with the firm’s Porsche Traction Management all-wheel drive system and feature 22mm wider rear wheel arches than the regular versions.

The Carrera 4 is fitted with a flat-six 3.4-liter engine that generates 350 hp (257 kW) which is enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 4.5 seconds (0.2 seconds more for the cabriolet), on its way to a top speed of 177 mph (175 mph for cabrio). The more powerful 4S has a flat-six 3.8-liter engine that cranks out 400 hp (294 kW) and sprints to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds (4.3 seconds for the cabrio), before hitting a maximum speed of 186 mph (184 mph for the cabriolet).

The cheapest model money can buy is the Carrera 4 Coupe which is priced at 77,924 pounds, followed by the Carrera 4 Cabriolet at 86,583 pounds. The hotter Carrera 4S Coupe can be yours for 87,959 pounds while the Carrera 4S Coupe has a starting price of 96,619 pounds.

All versions will go on sale before the end of the year.
