Porsche does things their own way. Because they offer so many versions of the 911, there is an intense plan at work. As the factories wind down production on the 2019 model year, it signals the end of the 991.2 chassis. We have already been introduced to the future in the form of the 2020 Carrera S. This was a smart move to hit the ground running with a performance model. Yet, there are many among us who don’t need 443 horsepower. Gladly, we now have a new benchmark for the competition to follow, as the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera has been unveiled.
Don’t call it a base model, although it is the entry-level Porsche 911. Offered as a coupe and cabriolet, the 3.0L flat-six uses twin turbos to make 379 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. Speaking of torque, it is offered everywhere between 1,950 and 5,000 rpm. It weighs in at 3,354 lbs, and it can reach 60 mph in 3.8 seconds if you opt for the Sport Chrono Package. Pricing for the coupe starts at a competitive $97,400 and the drop-top is $110,200. For now, it appears as if the 8-speed PDK is the only transmission offered.
Now that the Carrera is in the open, tell us which 911 model will be the next to debut. Our guess is the return of the Targa, followed by a GTS. Both of which will be offered in rear or AWD. Then the Turbo and Turbo S will eventually reclaim their spots as the flagship for the brand. Hopefully, the 992 chassis will yield GT2 and GT3 models, the waiting is the hardest part. In the meantime, our dealers have to make room for the new Carreras, so click the link below for great offers on remaining 2019 models and stay with us for all your Porsche news.
