Porsche has revealed the entry-level model in the new 992-generation 911 range, the 911 Carrera coupe and Cabriolet.
The twins employ the same 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six engine as the previously-revealed Carrera S, albeit with smaller turbo compressors that lower outputs to a still-potent 283kW (385PS) of power and 450Nm of torque – up 11kW over the outgoing 991.2 Carrera.
Porsche claims a 0-100km/h sprint time of 4.2 seconds, falling to 4.0 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package – top speed is rated at 293km/h. Both the coupe and cabriolet are rear-wheel-drive, with shifting handled by an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
To differentiate the base Carrera from the S, dual exhaust outlets, 19-inch front/20-inch rear wheels and smaller 330mm steel brakes have been fitted. The rest of the exterior remains unchanged, including the LED headlights, sleek door handles and full-width taillight.
The S’ interior carries over, with the same 10.9-inch touchscreen and semi-digital instrument cluster.
The 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera touches down in Australia in the fourth quarter of 2019, priced from $229,500 plus on-road costs.
