It’s been eight months since the all-new 992 generation Porsche 911 debuted at the 2018 L.A. Auto Show, launching the Carrera S in both coupe and cabriolet versions. Further expanding the line-up, Porsche has now finally revealed the standard 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera. Available in coupe and cabriolet versions, the range-starting model of the sports car is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged flat-six engine 379 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque; that’s 9 more horses than the outgoing Porsche 911 Carrera. Porsche claims the fixed-roof version does the zero to 60mph sprint in 4 seconds flat, which comes down to 3.8 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package. The droptop version, on the other hand, does the same in 4.2 seconds or in 4 seconds with the Sport Chrono pack. The top speed is 182 mph for the coupe and 180 mph for the Cabriolet.
The Porsche Active Suspension Management comes standard on the base model and the brakes also have Porsche’s new Wet mode that detects a wet road and tweaks the stability control and anti-lock brake system accordingly. In terms of aesthetics, it looks near identical the Carrera S models except for single-sided exhaust tip and slightly smaller wheels measuring 19-inch in the front and 20 at the rear. However, the options list allows the buyer to spec the car with both, bigger wheels and double-sided exhaust tips. Prices for the 911 Carrera start at $98,750 for the coupe and $111,550 for the Cabriolet. The deliveries estimated to begin early next year.
