Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 4S are revealed today. Porsche 911 is the perfection in automotive engineering, for decade Porsche constantly improved the 911 and shift the bar higher. Even though, manufacturing of Porsche 911 is too much robotic and lack of emotional touch of a Lamborghini, Porsche 911 is still one of the best cars in the world!
With new all-wheel drive option in 911, everything got better. I really don’t like the rear wheel driven Porsche 911s. I don’t know why but, I would not buy a rear-wheel driven 911. I think it is a bit psychological, when there is an all-wheel drive option, it makes you feel more confident on the road and you don’t want to ignore this option. And you have the full power of the engine on the road.
With Porsche Carrera 4 and 4S models, Porsche started to introduce more technology. Radar guided cruise control (ACC), front-end collision preventer Porsche Active Safe, sliding glass sunroof (So Targa model may not be available in future) and extended sport Chrono Pack with double declutching function.
Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 4S are available with 7-speed manual or 7-speed PDK (double clutch automatic gearbox). I highly recommend you to buy PDK gearbox, manual is the old technology! Depressing clutch is old school, sorry!
All new models have a 7-speed manual gearbox as standard, and the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) gearbox is available as an option. The 911 Carrera 4 Coupé with 350 hp (257 kW) can sprint from zero to 100 km/h in as little as 4.5 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.7 s) and reach a top speed of up to 285 km/h (Cabriolet: 282 km/h), depending on equipment features. Fuel consumption with PDK is 8.6 l/100 km (CO2 203 g/km) for the Coupé and 8.7 l/100 km (CO2 205 g/km) for the Cabriolet.
The Coupé and Cabriolet of the 911 Carrera 4 S each have a 3.8-litre rear-mounted boxer engine that produces 400 hp (294 kW); this enables acceleration to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.3 seconds) and a top speed of 299 km/h (Cabriolet: 296 km/h) with a suitable equipment configuration. Fuel consumption values with PDK are 9.1 l/100 km (CO2 215 g/km) for the Coupé and 9.2 l/100 km (CO2 217 g/km) for the Cabriolet.
