The new 911 with all-wheel drive builds on the success of the previous generation of Carrera 4 models, of which a total of about 24,000 units have been sold since 2008. This represents a 34 per cent share of total sales of second generation ‘Type 997’ models. This previous generation introduced three of the greatest development steps in powertrain technology that the 911 with all-wheel drive ever made: new engines with direct petrol injection, the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) gearbox and electronically-controlled Porsche Traction Management (PTM). In July 2011, Porsche crowned the model series with the 911 Carrera 4 GTS, whose 3.8-litre engine was boosted to 408 hp (300 kW).
