More tech. More power. Pure 911.
Only a month after the reveal of the newly turbocharged 911 Carrera and Carrera S, Porsche brings us three more turbo flat-six flavors: the Carrera 4 (coupe and cabriolet) and Targa 4. All are based on the newly facelifted 911 but, due to the all-wheel-drive system, have 4-mm wider rear wheel arches. That signature light strip exclusive to AWD 911s also returns, but with a new "consciously three-dimensional design."
Power, of course, comes courtesy of that new twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six with 370 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque. S models see an increase to 420 hp and 368 lb-ft. When combined with the optional PDK dual-clutch and the 918-derived Sport Chrono Package, the Carrera 4 goes from 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds. The cabriolet S and Targa 4 need another 0.2 seconds to 62. The S version makes that sprint in only 3.8 seconds. Top speeds vary, according to model and equipment, between 178 mph and 189 mph. The active rear-axle steering option available in the Carrera S is adopted technology straight from the 911 Turbo and 911 GT3.
911 Turbo tech was also utilized for the electro-hydraulically controlled and improved all-wheel drive system, which comes standard with an adaptive PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) chassis with a 10 mm lower ride height. Official pricing wasn't announced but sales are expected to begin early next year.
