Porsche Cars Australia has confirmed that its Carrera 4 Coupe and Cabriolet will hit local showrooms before year’s end, priced from $245,600 and $267,100, respectively.
At that pricepoint, the 4 sits below the Carrera S ($264,600) and 4S ($280,700) in the 2020 line-up.
Put in line with its rear-driven sibling, the Carrera 4 features an Australia-specific equipment package, including lane-change assist, 14-way adjustable and heated front seats, a Bose surround sound system, metallic paint, auto-dimming mirrors and a reversing camera.
The Carrera 4 also shares its interior with the standard 911 models, with the centrally positioned tachometer and a new 10.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system.
Like all eighth-generation 911 Carrera models, the all-paw Carrera 4 is motivated by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre boxer engine.
Power is up by 11kW compared with its predecessor at 283kW, while torque holds steady at 440Nm.
When matched with the standard eight-speed automatic transmission, the new 911 Carrera 4 Coupe accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 4.2 seconds, however, that time drops to 4.0s with the Sport Chrono Package fitted.
The Cabriolet is 0.2 seconds slower in both cases, and will hit a top speed of 289km/h compared to 291km/h in the tin-top.
Equipped with the latest version of Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), a variable damping system can be tuned with two selectable modes: Normal and Sport.
An electronically controlled limited-slip differential and torque vectoring can be ordered as an option.
The wheels feature a staggered layout, measuring 19-inches at the front and 20-inches at the rear, with 235/40 and 295/35 tyres fitted, respectively.
On the outside, the 911 Carrera 4 shares the new-generation design language, and can be distinguished from the range by its rectangular tailpipes.
