Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 4s unveiled
Four-wheel drive Porsche 911 Carrera coupe and cabriolet models go on sale in the UK in December.
The new Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 4S models have been unveiled ahead of their public launch at the Paris Motor Show at the end of September. The four-wheel drive coupe and convertible models join the all-new rear-wheel drive Porsche 911 Carrera 2 and 2S range.
As well as adding the Porsche Traction Management four-wheel drive system, the 911 Carrera 4 models have 22mm-wider wheel arches and use a 10mm-wider rear tyre than the two-wheel drive models.
To distinguish the Carrera 4 models further, Porsche has added a red light strip between the rear lights.
A special display has been added to the 911’s interior, which informs the driver of how the four-wheel drive system is distributing power between each of the four wheels.
The 345bhp 3.4-litre and 395bhp 3.8-litre S engines, and seven-speed manual and dual-clutch gearboxes, are carried over from the two-wheel drive car.
Both the 911 Carrera 4 and 4S go on sale in the UK in December. Prices start at £77,924 for a Carrera 4 coupe, rising to £87,959 for the 4S coupe. The Carrera 4 convertible starts at £86,583, and the 4S version costs £96,619.
