main plus points of the new 911 Carrera 4S Cabrio: the fun equation
420 Cv or 20 Cv more (and therefore now we are at 140 Cv liter) compared to the previous model to which is added a torque value increased to 500 Nm with “engine use” between 1700 and 7500 rpm; and then there are the consumption, extraordinary if we think that the new 911 consumes about 1 liter less every 100 km and therefore we are now at 7.7 liters per 100 km.
The result of the fun equation is simple to understand: more power, improved driving fun gradient but above all lower consumption thanks to the new three-liter turbo engine. Worthy of note are the performances with a maximum speed of 301 km / h but above all an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.0 seconds with our Sport Plus and PDK version
As for the other models, also the 911 Carrera 4S with all-wheel drive, is an integral part of the new concept that has revolutionized the range: but there are also aesthetic details that stand out as in the case of the rear lights with central light band that accentuates the elegant but conceptually sporty also thanks to the 44 mm more width of the back area.
The goal on the new 911 turbo engine was to raise the bar in terms of sportiness and ride comfort but also to make the driver feel the sporting instinct of the GT3. Now, in fact, for cars with PDK gearboxes, the change (inverted sense) takes place by pulling the paddle towards you on the steering wheel while to scale it, simply press the paddle forward. The renewed PDK with double clutch flywheel with centrifugal force pendulum, is an adaptive reducer (we find it also on cars with manual gearbox) that “softens” the oscillations in the traction when downshifting and sudden gear changes, result 0 bumps in the variations of relationship.
But the best operation of the PDK also passes from the intelligent disconnection of the thrust, from the gears defined as “virtual” which occurs when the driver takes his foot off the gas, such as in a descent where the sailing function is activated thanks to the clutches that are positioned in crowds together with the engine. Finally, the Start & Stop function has also been improved, which stops the flow of fuel in the engine at speeds below 7 km / h, an example of which is the classic stop at the traffic lights.
Here comes the PTM all-wheel drive of the 911 Turbo on the 911 Carrera 4S Cabrio, equipped with a clutch with electro-hydraulic management blades that activates the thrust on the front axle by virtue of the driving situations; results in greater speed in PTM operation and a more “precise” adjustment of the driving forces on the four wheels with a prevalence of thrust on the front axle when needed. All this turns into decidedly more tangible acceleration values.
