As we continue to highlight new vehicle unveilings surrounding this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, Porsche shares official imagery of its 2020 911 Carrera S and 4S.
The new Carrera S and all-wheel-drive Carrera 4S welcome an updated 3.0-liter flat six engine from the 991.2, cranking out 443 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. The models also feature larger turbos, a new intercooler, and new injectors, coming standard with a new eight-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. For those who prefer a manual drivetrain, it will be offered at a later date.
The PDK allows the Carrera S Coupe to reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, while the 4S is a tenth of a second quicker. Those opting for the Sport Chrono package will enjoy 0 to 60 in 3.3 seconds in the Carrera S and 3.2 seconds in the 4S. The Carrera S’ top speed is 191 mph, and the Carrera 4S maxes out at 190 mph.
Porsche’s 992, an evolution of the 991-generation 911 that debuted in 2011, boasts a wider build, with an all-aluminum bodywork. The rear, for example, is the same width as the Carrera 4, 4S, and GTS models. The door handles of the 992 are now flush with the body, while the fenders extend to the bumper. 20-inch wheels are then available up front, with 21-inch versions at the rear. All models of the 992 come with a full-width LED taillight.
On the inside you’ll notice that a clickable panel, similarly found in the Panamera, is positioned at the center. The dash is taller, outfitted with a wider infotainment screen, and you can customize the two large digital displays with various information. The 992 also arrives with 12 months of Porsche Connect Plus, a special traffic display system.
Porsche is scheduled to launch the Carrera S (starting at $114,250) and 4S Coupe (starting at $121,660) next year, presumably followed by the 911 Turbo and 911 GT3.
