After a long wait, Porsche has revealed the new 911 Carrera with the entry variant starting at $229,500 plus on-road costs.
Revealed in both Coupe and Cabriolet body styles, both get power from a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre flat-six engine producing 283kW and 450Nm. A new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) drives the rear wheels.
Porsche claims the 911 Carrera can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 293km/h. The optional Sport Chrono Package shaves a further 0.2 seconds off this sprint time.
On the outside, smaller wheels and brakes along with individual tailpipe covers differentiate the base car from the Carrera S.
The 911 Carrera rides on 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 235/40 ZR rubber up front, while the rear gets 20-inch wheels with 295/35 ZR tyres. Stopping power is provided on both axles by 330mm brake discs with black, four-piston monobloc fixed calipers.
Porsche’s new 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment display is standard, as is Wet Mode which can detect water on the road and precondition the control systems as needed whilst warning the driver.
Additional standard equipment for Australia includes lane change assist, 14-way comfort seats with heating, a BOSE audio system, digital radio, keyless entry and start, metallic paint, auto-dimming mirrors and a rear-view camera.
The 911 Carrera Coupe starts from $229,500 (plus on-roads) while the Carrera Cabriolet is priced from $251,000 (plus on-roads). Both are available to order now with deliveries due to commence in Q4 2019. The all-wheel drive Carrera 4 version will also be available soon.
