New 911 Carrera Models are coming...

Porsche to Debut Another New 911(R) Carrera(R) Model in Frankfurt; New Carrera 4S Model Takes the Place of Carrera 4 Coupe in North America

ATLANTA, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Porsche today announced it will debut an all-new 911 Carrera 4S model at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany, on Sept. 11, 2001.

Taking the place of the 911 Carrera 4 Coupe in the North American Porsche model line for 2002, the 911 Carrera 4S combines that model's all-wheel drive system with design and chassis features from the 911 Turbo. Like the redesigned 911 Carrera models recently introduced for 2002, the Carrera 4S features 911 Turbo-inspired front-end styling and the new 3.6-liter, 320-horsepower engine, along with interior enhancements. The Carrera 4S is distinguished from other 2002 Porsche 911 models by an exclusive red light strip that connects the rear taillights.

Underneath, the 911 Carrera 4S inherits the suspension tuning and larger- diameter brake rotors from the 911 Turbo. It can accelerate from zero-to-62 mph (100 km/h) in just 5.1 seconds, compared to 5.0 seconds for the standard rear-wheel drive 911 Carrera, and can be equipped with either the standard six-speed manual transmission or the advanced Tiptronic(R) S five-speed automatic system that also allows manual shifting control.

In Frankfurt, the 911 Carrera 4S will share the spotlight with the new 911 Targa(R) model, which returns to the Porsche model line after a five-year absence. North American pricing and availability of both new 911 models will be announced at a later date.

Porsche Cars North America (PCNA), based in Atlanta, Ga., is the exclusive importer of Porsche cars for the United States and Canada. A wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Dr. Ing. h.c.F. Porsche AG, PCNA employs approximately 200 people who provide Porsche vehicles, parts, marketing and training for its 204 dealers in North America. They, in turn, provide Porsche owners with best-in-class service.
