The New 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera Is Here – UPDATE

In case you were not aware, the Carrera is the entry-level Porsche 911 model. We finally get details on the new 992 Carrera Coupe and Convertible.

We don’t really need to explain to you that a “base” 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera is certainly anything but. Sure, it’s down on power over the 911 Carrera S and whatnot but few cars will ever match a 911, no matter the trim.

The Porsche 911 Carrera’s engine is a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine. Output rises to 379-horsepower from the 911.2’s 370-horsepower. While the gain on paper is nominal, the turbochargers are smaller which means they spool up faster. The real trick is the new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission PDK automatic transmission. Standard 0-100km/h time for the Coupé is now 4.2 seconds and with the Sport Chrono package, the sprint drops to an even 4 seconds.

2020 Porsche 911 Deep Dive : What’s really new about the 992?

The visual differences between the Carrera and Carrera S are smaller standard wheels (which still measure 19 inches up front and 20 inches in the rear) and the two single tailpipes. Otherwise, the Carrera features all the latest goodies newly offered with the 992 Carrera S including the 10.9-inch touchscreen display and the Porsche Advanced Cockpit control concept.

Here are answers to questions you may have:

Q-What is the Porsche 911 starting price?

A-Not sure yet but expect a $7,500-$10,000 increase over the 991.2, so between $110,000 and $115,000.

UPDATE: Pricing of the 911 Carrera Coupé starts at $111,000 and the 911 Carrera Cabriolet at $125,600 in Canada

Q-When can I buy one?

A-The car is already available for order now.

Q-When will the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 become available?

A-Porsche says: “The all-wheel drive version will be available soon.”

Q-Is there a manual transmission offered in the Porsche 911?

A-As of right now, no.
