New Look, More Horsepower for 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Models

New Look, More Horsepower for 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Models; Legendary Sportscars Get 3.6-Liter Engine and Turbo-Inspired Design

ATLANTA, May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- All 2002 Porsche(R) 911(R) Carrera(R) models arriving in dealerships this September will sport a larger, more powerful engine and a new look inspired by the 911 Turbo supercar. These models include the 911 Carrera Coupe and Cabriolet and the all-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4 Coupe and Cabriolet models.

For 2002, Porsche has enlarged the displacement of the six-cylinder, horizontally opposed boxer engine in the 911 Carrera models to 3.6 liters from 3.4 liters and increased horsepower from 300 to 320. The 911 Carrera models are already among the world's quickest and fastest sportscars, and the larger engine in the 2002 versions will boost performance further.

The 2002 911 Carrera models keep their unmistakable 911 profile and adopt the headlight design of the 911 Turbo, plus a newly shaped front end, widened rear end panel, and redesigned oval exhaust tailpipes. In the Cabriolet models, a glass rear window with integral defroster replaces the polycarbonate window.

Porsche projects zero-to-100 km/h acceleration in 5.0 seconds for the 911 Carrera and the all-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4 coupe models, with the Cabriolet versions achieving zero-to-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds. The top track speed increases from 174 mph (280 km/h) to 178 mph (285 km/h) for all versions with the manual transmission. A five-speed Tiptronic(R) S automatic transmission remains an option for all 911 Carrera models.

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 subsidiary of Dr. Ing. h.c.F. Porsche AG, PCNA employs approximately 200 people who provide Porsche vehicles, parts, marketing and training for its 205 dealers in North America. They, in turn, provide Porsche owners with best-in-class service.
