There are two things you can take to the bank when Porsche unveils a new-generation 911. First, the visual updates will be subtle at best. Second, the full rollout lineup will be a long, slow process. The latter has certainly been the case, as Porsche just announced two new 911 models two months after the 911 Carrera and Carrera Cabriolet debuted.
These new variants will push the latest additions to the 2020 911 lineup to a new level of performance, as they slap an all-wheel-drive system under these potent sports cars. Known as the Carrera 4 and Carrera 4 Cabriolet, these models will take the 379-horsepower 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine and hook it up to all-wheel drive for lightning-fast launches.
The result will be a four-second 0-to-60 sprint in the Carrera 4 and a 4.2-second gallop in the Carrera 4 Cabriolet. Buyers who opt for the Sport Chrono package will enjoy a 0.2-second quicker sprint in both versions of the 2020 911 Carrera 4. These are 0.1-second improvements over the last-generation Carrera 4 models.
The 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 will start from $104,700, and the 2020 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet will start from $117,500. We expect to see these all-wheel-drive sports cars in showrooms in early 2020.
