Character 911 Carrera 4

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 - Character


Fuel consumption/emissions* 911: Urban in l/100 km 18.9-11.3; Extra urban in l/100 km 8.9-6.6; Combined in l/100 km 12.4-8.2; CO2 emissions in g/km 289-191.

One thing is for certain. When it comes to finding your own strengths, it always helps to know who you are and where you come from. Where the 911 is concerned, we call this Porsche Identity.

The immense power that is embodied in this strong identity is immediately apparent in the all-wheel-drive 911 Carrera 4. Its Porsche Traction Management (PTM) converts power directly into motion. Not in a heavy-handed way, but intelligently. Among other variables, sensors monitor the rotational speeds of all four wheels, the vehicle’s lateral and longitudinal acceleration and the steering angle. In this way, the active all-wheel drive can continually respond to different driving situations and precisely distribute drive forces between the front and rear axles. Tuned to provide poised and balanced handling during performance driving, PTM quickly and clearly demonstrates, especially in the wet and snow, what we at Porsche understand by traction.

Expressed in simple terms, the 911 Carrera 4 is self-assured. An assuredness that has been assisted by engineering and aesthetic details such as the wider body – the rear wings are 44 mm wider than those of the 911 Carrera – the 295 mm wide rear tyres, the special air intakes, the illuminated rear light strip with taillights and parking light function, and distinctive side skirts.

One of its inherent strengths is, of course, its engine: the 3.4-litre, six-cylinder horizontally opposed power unit delivers 257 kW (350 hp) at 7,400 rpm and accelerates the 911 Carrera 4 from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.9 seconds. Top speed is 177 mph.

Let’s now bring the power of identity to bear on the road. With the aid of the 7-speed manual transmission or the optional PDK. Both feature sports ratios for gears 1 to 6 and a long-ratio 7th gear for fuel efficiency.

The 911 has many strengths. The 911 Carrera 4, with its superlative traction, dynamic performance and safety, has acquired even more. Why not take your seat behind the wheel and make these strengths your own?
