Porsche’s newest 911 siblings for the next decade were revealed this month. The AWD 911 Carrera 4, in coupe and cabriolet iterations, are welcome additions to the lineup, adding a unique performance flourish to the entry level of the series.
The 911 Carrera 4 and Carrera 4 Cabriolet, then, feature performance numbers that don’t deviate substantially, if at all, from the square-one Carrera. The variants are powered by a 3L flat-six biturbo engine which produces up to 379 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. The pair comes outfitted with Porsche’s standard 8-speed PDK paddle-shift gearbox, with Porsche’s Sport Chrono Package optional. 0-60 times are 4 seconds without the package, and 3.8 with.
More interestingly, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 4 Cabriolet come outfitted with Porsche’s Active Suspension Management adaptive aero, and includes Wet Mode as well as Normal and Sport with the system.
Cosmetics and interior features are also very close to baseline 911 Carrera specs for 2020. Square tailpipes positioned at the margins of the chassis distinguish the duo, but the 10.9” touchscreen and new sport seats remain the same.
The AWD 2020 Carrera 4 pricing starts at $106K for the coupe and $119K for the cabriolet.
