The New 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Models: Your Basic Fast AWD 911

The new “basic” 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 reaches 100 km/h in 4 seconds. Any questions?

The staggered release of all the Porsche 911 iterations continues. First it was the Carrera S and 4S, then the regular Carrera and now, it’s the very popular Porsche 911 Carrera 4’s turn.

These near-basic 911 Carreras are powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat 6-cylinder engine that has earned its own model-specific turbochargers. Output is rated at a very generous 379-horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 331 lb.-ft. of torque from 1,950 to 5,000 rpm.

The secret to the 911’s speed is its standard 8-speed PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) automatic transmission. With it, the 2020 911 Carrera 4 coupe rips from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. The optional Sport Chrono Package drops the time to 4.0 seconds. The convertible requires 0.2 seconds more for both events.

The new 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 includes PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management). This electronically variable damping system can be set in one of two selectable modes, “Normal” or “Sport”. PASM is but one way the new 992 911 continues its reign as one of the best sports cars in history. Other than a revised front axle, the Carrera 4 can be equipped with Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) and numerous other go-faster bits.

Visually, the 992 is a stunner. The Carrera 4 is mounted on a staggered wheel diameter setup with 19-inch wheels up front and 20-inch units at the rear. Fitted tires are 235/40 ZR 19 and 295/35 ZR 20 respectively.

In Canada, pricing for the 911 Carrera 4 Coupé starts at $119,300 while the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet begins at $133,900.
