Porsche 991 Carrera 4 revealed

Following on from the weekend’s leaked images, Porsche has revealed details of its new all-wheel drive 991 Carrera 4 range.

Beneath its skin, the innovative Porsche Traction Management ensures greater dynamics on all surfaces and in varying conditions, with the 257 kW (350 hp) 3.4-litre Carrera 4 hitting 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.7s) and reaching a 285 km/h (Cabriolet: 282 km/h) top speed. Weighing up to 65 kg less than its predecessor helps the Coupe to require 8.6 litres of fuel every 100 kilometres (Cabriolet: 8.7 l/100 km) when specified with the optional PDK gearbox rather than the standard seven-speed manual. Double-declutching occurs automatically during downshifts in Sport mode on manual cars fitted with the Sport Chrono pack.

The 294 kW (400 hp) 3.8-litre-engined Carrera 4S cracks 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.3s) and enjoys a 299 km/h (Cabriolet: 296 km/h) top speed, with a fuel consumption figure of 9.1 l/100 km for the Coupé (Cabriolet: 9.2 l/100 km).

Visual changes are relatively subtle, including swollen rear wheel arches adding 44 mm to the car’s width, 10 mm wider tyres and that tell-tale light strip spanning the rear.

Equipment of note includes the optional Adaptive Cruise Control ACC), which controls vehicle speed and distance to traffic ahead. When specified with PDK, Porsche Active Safe (PAS) works with the ACC, helping to avoid front-end collisions. There’s also a new sliding glass sunroof option.

Due to make their débuts at next month’s Paris Motor Show before going into production at the end of the year, prices in Germany are €97,557 for the Carrera 4 Coupe (Cabriolet: €110,290) and €112,313 for the Carrera 4S Coupe (Cabriolet: 125,046).
