What’s New for the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera?

Like the Carrera S, the Carrera will come equipped with a 3.0-liter turbocharged flat-six engine. The engine promises up to 379 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque, vaulting up 9 horsepower from the outgoing 911 Carrera. Alongside the now-standard PDK, heated seats and an auto-dimming mirror join the standard features list for 2020.

The new Wet Mode system uses sensors embedded in the wheel wells to determine the amount of water on the road and optimizes settings for better handling in wet driving conditions.
