(from Porsche Press Release)  The new-generation Porsche 911 Carrera and all-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4, introduced for model-year 1999, continue a tradition started in 1965 with the first 911. The 911 continually evolved over four decades and established a sports car legend on the road and the racetrack. 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 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.
