speed of 282 km/h. Its NEDC fuel consumption figures are between 9.5 and
8.7 litres/100 km, depending on transmission, which corresponds to a CO2

model reaches a top speed of 296 km/h and, with the PDK and Sport Chrono
package fitted, accelerates in 4.4 seconds. Its fuel consumption fluctuates
between 10.0 and 9.2 litres per 100 km, depending on transmission, which
corresponds to a CO2 level of between 237 and 214 g/km. With these figures,
the model is on a par with the high standard set by the 911 Carrera 4
cabriolet models in terms of engine and road performance, as well as
efficiency. Both sportscars are certified for compliance with the Euro 6
