2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 & 4S
Porsche has released the first official photos of 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 & 4S with four-wheel drive coupe and cabriolet model. Both of this model are scheduled to make their world premiere at Paris Motor Show 2012 in September.
2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 will be powered with a 3.4-liter, flat-six engine with 345 horsepower and 288 lb-ft of torque, while for Carrera 4S powered with a 3.8-liter, flat-six with 394 horsepower and 324 lb-ft of torque. Carrera 4 & 4S will be supported by a standard seven-speed manual transmission and Porsche’s PDK seven-speed dual-clutch automatic available as an option. The Carrera 4 will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 177 mph in coupe form, and 4.5 seconds in cabriolet form and reach a top speed of 175 mph. The 4S coupe will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 185 mph, while the drop-top model will take 4.1 seconds to get to 60 and reaches 183 mph in the top speed.
The gas mileage on the Carrera is actually very decent for the type of car it is. The Carrera 4 gets 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway when equipped with the PDK. The cabriolet Carrera gets 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. The 4S model gets 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway with the PDK.
The redesigned 2013 Carrera 4 and 4S exterior look pretty much as expected, as we have already seen the redesigned 911 and we knew it wouldn’t stray too far from its roots.
In the interior, Carrera 4 & 4S offer several nice and luxurious design. First is an optional glass sunroof – a new addition for 2012. Next you’re going to find a slight modification to the center dashboard vents, as it looks like all Porsche did was flip the 2012 vents upside down. Now the longer section of the vent bezel is on the top, giving it a grin-look instead of the frown look from 2012. The LCD screen in the stack looks significantly larger than the 2012 model year.
New features for the new generation 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 & 4S:
- All-wheel drive indicator
- Porsche Active Safe
- Sliding glass sunroof
- Extended Sport Chrono pack
- A new menu in the instrument cluster that informs the driver how the PTM all-wheel drive is currently distributing engine power
- Optional Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) to the entire model range, which controls distance to traffic ahead and vehicle speed
- New sliding glass sunroof as an optional feature for the 911 Carrera Coupe
