The New 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S and 4S – Powerful, More Dynamic, Unmistakably A 911
Faster, More Emotional and More Connected – The Eighth Generation of Porsche 911 is here. In front of the Los Angeles Auto Show, the new 911 celebrated its world premiere at the Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles. With an exterior that reflects Porsche design DNA, a more muscular look and a brand new interior set, the new 911 is both timeless and modern. The next generation of six-six turbocharged engines has been further developed to be more powerful than ever before, delivering 443 horsepower in the S-models. With the help of an improved injection process, as well as a new design for turbochargers and intercoolers, the engine's efficiency has been further optimized. The power is delivered by a new eight-stage dual-coupling transmission. New auxiliary systems as standard Porsche Wet Mode for increased driver awareness on wet roads and optional Night Vision Assist with a thermal image camera are part of the extended range of available features for active driver function.

911 Carrera S Models With 443 Horsepower
The turbocharged six-engine 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S now produce 443 horsepower. This corresponds to an increase of 23 horsepower compared with the previous model. Equipped with the 8-speed PDK dual-coupling transport, the 911 Carrera S Coupe rear-wheel drive only needs 3.5 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour from standstill, and the 911 Carrera 4S Coupe with all-wheel drive only takes 3.4 seconds. This makes both cars 0.4 seconds faster than the previous model in each case. This benefit is increased by another 0.2 seconds with the extra Sport Chrono package, to 3.3 seconds for Carrera S and 3.2 seconds for the Carrera 4S. Top speed speeds are now 191 miles per hour (911 Carrera S) and 190 miles per hour for all-wheel drive. A manual gearbox will be offered at a later date.
Clear design language, unmistakable identity
Exterior design has been revolutionized and emphasizes the leap in the performance of the new Porsche 911. Significantly wider wheelhouses are located over a large 20-inch front wheel and 21-inch rear wheel. On the front, the body width has increased by 45 millimeters (1.77 inches), providing space for a broader front track. Similarly, the rear body width of both the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S has increased to 1,852 mm, the width of the previous 911 Carrera 4 and 911 GTS models. Sprinkle the integration of the electric door handles that extend beyond when necessary, emphasizing the conical and smooth side contours. Between the new LED front lights the luggage compartment draws on the trunk with pronounced contours highlighting the design of the first 911 generations. The rear is dominated by the considerably wider rear variable speed rear spoiler and the seamless, elegant lightbar, which is now a function of both two- and four-wheel drive variants. With the exception of the front and rear fasciae, the entire outer skin is now made of aluminum.
The brand new interior is characterized by the clear and straight lines on the dashboard with recessed instruments. The Porsche 911 models from the 1970s gave inspiration here. Left and right of the centrally positioned tachometer, which is characteristic of Porsche, two thin, frameless, freestanding monitors give the driver information. PCM can be operated quickly and intuitively thanks to the new architecture. Located below the screen, a compact five-button switchboard provides direct access to key vehicle features. In terms of digitization, 911 is more connected than ever, thanks to new features and services. The standard PCM system has Porsche Connect Plus, including web based traffic information based on swarm data. (A subscription is required after an initial 12 month trial.)
* The availability of Porsche Connect services depends on the availability of wireless network coverage that may not be available in all areas and may be subject to any technology sunset or deactivation, and thus nullifying services. Vehicle equipment required for use with Porsche Connect is available only factory-installed and can not be retrofitted. Similarly, the vehicle's equipment may not work with future mobile networks that are yet to be distributed. Some features may require separate subscriptions, or data charges may apply.
New auxiliary systems increase safety and comfort
As the world world, Porsche has developed Wet Mode, which is included as standard equipment on the new Porsche 911. This feature detects water on the road, assumes stability control and anti-lock systems accordingly. warns the driver. A camera-based warning and brake assist system, also equipped as standard, detects the risk of collision with moving objects and initiates emergency braking if necessary. Night Vision Assist with a thermal image camera is optionally available for 911 for the first time. The Adaptive Cruise Control option includes automatic remote control, stop-and-go functionality, and an innovative emergency response feature.
2020 911 Carrera S has a base MSRP of $ 113,200, while the 2020 911 Carrera 4S will be offered starting at $ 120,600, including no delivery, handling and handling fee of $ 1,050. The models can now be ordered and are expected to reach US retailers in the summer of 2019.
