The 2020 911 Carrera S and 4S Cabriolet benefit from the same advancements and new offerings of driver assistance systems as the recently shown Coupe models. As a world first, Porsche has developed the Wet Mode, which is included as standard equipment on the new Porsche 911. This function detects water on the road, preconditions the stability control and anti-lock brake systems accordingly, and warns the driver. A camera-based warning and brake assist system, also fitted as standard, detects the risk of collision with other vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists. It initiates a warning or emergency braking to help the driver when necessary. Night Vision Assist with a thermal imaging camera is optionally available for the 911 for the first time. The Adaptive Cruise Control option includes automatic distance control and stop-and-go functionality.
The 2020 911 Carrera S Cabriolet has a base MSRP of $126,100, while the 2020 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet will be offered starting at $133,400, each not including the $1,250 delivery, processing and handling fee. The models can be ordered now and are expected to reach U.S. dealers in late summer 2019.
The turbocharged flat-six engine of the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet models benefits from the same upgrades implemented on the recently introduced Coupe models. Thanks to new piezo fuel injectors, larger turbochargers and a new layout for the charge air cooling system, the 3.0 liter twin-turbo engine now produces 443 horsepower. This corresponds to an increase of 23 horsepower compared with the previous model. Equipped with the 8-speed PDK dual clutch transmission as standard, the rear-wheel-drive 911 Carrera S Cabriolet needs just 3.7 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour from standstill, and the 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet with all-wheel drive takes only 3.6 seconds. This makes both cars 0.4 seconds faster than the previous model in each case. This advantage increases by a further 0.2 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package, to 3.5 seconds for the Carrera S Cabriolet and 3.4 seconds for the Carrera 4S Cabriolet. The top track speeds are now 190 miles per hour for the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet and 188 miles per hour for the all-wheel-drive version. A manual transmission will be offered at a later date.
The exterior design has been revamped and underlines the leap in performance of the new Porsche 911. Significantly wider wheel housings arch over large 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels. At the front, the body width has increased by 45 millimeters (1.77 inches), making room for a wider front track. Correspondingly, the rear body width on the new 911 Carrera S Cabriolet has increased to 1,852 mm (72.91 in), the width of the previous 911 Carrera 4 and 911 GTS models. The 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet retains this width from the previous generation all-wheel drive model. Flush integration of the electric door handles that extend outward when needed emphasizes the tapered and smooth side contour. Between the new standard LED headlights, the front luggage compartment lid with pronounced contours evokes the design of the first 911 generations. The rear is dominated by the significantly wider, variable-position rear spoiler and the seamless, elegant light bar which is now a feature on both two- and four-wheel drive variants. With the exception of the front and rear fasciae, the entire outer skin is now made of aluminum.
