Porsche has lifted the veil on the fifth generation of the all-wheel-drive 911 Carrera 4 ahead of its September debut in Paris. The sports car, available in coupe and convertible versions, is due in North American showrooms in February.
It has a widened body with rear side panels extending 0.9 inches beyond the standard rear-wheel-drive 911. That allows for wider rear wheels and tires. The new Carrera 4 is powered by a 3.4-liter version of Porsche's horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine, delivering 350 hp.
The Carrera 4S will have a 3.8-liter engine that produces 400 hp.
