(from Porsche Press Release)  All 911 models feature a rear mounted, horizontally opposed "boxer" six-cylinder engine and the same distinctive profile. The new generation 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera 4 in both coupe and Cabriolet forms share a modern interpretation of the unmistakable 911 design. Safety technology includes a patented crumple-zone body structure, dual front airbags, door-mounted side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. The 911 Carrera 4 all-wheel drive system uses a viscous multi-plate clutch mounted just behind the front differential that directs torque to the front wheels at a rate of five to 40 percent, depending on available traction and the power applied. The Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system also provides additional safety and control on the road. The 911 Carrera models accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 5.2 seconds. The Cabriolet models feature a one-touch power roof, an automatic deploying supplemental safety bar structure, and a standard removable aluminum hardtop.

New for 2001: Porsche has added several convenience features to the 911 Carrera models. Interior orientation lights use light-emitting diodes (LED) to provide gentle illumination of the cockpit and center console, ignition lock and light switch, and door latches. The remote entry system adds enhanced functions, and the trunk features improved carpeting. A new subwoofer speaker system has joined the option list, and some popular options have been grouped into packages.
