Fuel consumption* of the 911 models: Urban in l/100 km (mpg) 18.9 (15.0)-11.3 (25.0); Extra urban in l/100 km (mpg) 8.9 (32.0)-6.6 (42.8); Combined in l/100 km (mpg) 12.4 (23.0)-8.2 (34.4); CO2 emissions in g/km 289-191.
It may come as a surprise to you, but our engineers are very emotional people. And clear thinkers. There is no conflict between these two traits. On the contrary, they are ideal qualifications for those tasked with the development of a cabriolet that is more than just a fair-weather car: the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet. Entirely without contradiction, it combines the thrills of open-top driving with outstanding roadholding.
May we now appeal to your emotions? Here goes. The 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet is powered by a 3.4-litre boxer engine developing 257 kW (350 hp) at 7,400 rpm, which displays superlative performance. The 0 to 62 mph sprint is completed in 5.1 seconds, for example. And it boasts a top speed of 175 mph.
When it comes to traction, however, composure and reason prevail in the form of the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel-drive system. Working together with Porsche Stability Management (PSM), PTM ensures excellent levels of stability and safety. So you can give free rein to your emotions. Even in the wet and snow.
The hood of the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet is able to adapt to the weather and your mood in precisely 13 seconds. That’s all the time it needs to open or close at road speeds of up to 31 mph. Magnesium support elements make the hood lightweight, yet extremely rigid and robust. An integral wind deflector is fitted as standard. Electrically powered, it extends in just two seconds.
There’s a feeling of pride that the fabric hood creates the same elegant silhouette as that of the 911 Coupé models. The powerful proportions – the body that is 44 mm wider at the rear, the broader rear track and 295 mm wide rear tyres – are characteristic of all-wheel-drive design. All this combines to create that unique Porsche cornering feel.
We think that it’s better to play out your emotions than to conceal them. The 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet.
