- 385 horsepower from 3.0-litre flat six-cylinder engine
- More than £10,000 cheaper than 911 Carrera S
Coming soon: 2019 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe and Cabriolet
Porsche announces a new, more affordable version of the latest 911, available in both coupe and convertible forms.
Available in both coupe and cabriolet forms, the Carrera is powered by a 385-horsepower version of Porsche’s 3.0-litre, six-cylinder engine, and has a starting price of £82,793 for the coupe. That compares to £93,110 for the 450-horsepower 911 Carrera S, which was previously the cheapest model.
The new 911 Carrera Cabriolet has the same engine, but comes with a folding soft roof and starts at £92,438.
Visually, you can spot the Carrera by its smaller 19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inches at the back, and different exhaust pipes to the S. Both the new cars are rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive versions will follow soon. The Carrera cars are available to order now.
