Which vital ingredients do you need to experience moments of true happiness? It’s our conviction, at least, that you need impressive roadholding. Plus safety, reliability and faith in technology that won’t let you down when you need it most. Because only when we have peace of mind are we truly free.
All these ingredients have been brought together in the 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet. The car, powered by a 3.8-litre direct fuel injection (DFI) engine with a maximum output of 294 kW (400 hp) at 7,400 rpm, sprints from 0 to 62 mph in 4.7 seconds and boasts a top speed of 183 mph.
The car’s ‘happiness hub’, however, can be found in the perfected Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel-drive control system. Handling is poised and balanced, particularly when the car is being driven at its limits. This makes controlling the car even easier and driving even more pleasurable.
The hood of the 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet lets you open up to the open road. The fabric hood featuring magnesium elements is lightweight, yet robust and extremely rigid. It opens in just 13 seconds at road speeds of up to 31 mph. When closed, it shows off an aerodynamically optimised silhouette that has a drag coefficient of just 0.31. Which is also why you can hear hardly any wind noise.
You can certainly hear the engine though. The sound is – and remains – unmistakably Porsche. A crucial quality for a strong identity.
It’s possible, of course, to describe moments of happiness. But it’s far better to experience them first hand. The 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet.
