The Porsche 911 starts this week using a full throttle launch, as the new 991 range has just received its all-wheel drive versions, with Porsche launching the Carrera 4 and 4S in the Coupe and Cabriolet incarnations.
At the same time with the launch of the AWD versions, Porsche is also introducing a set of optional features for the entire 911 line-up. First and foremost, we get a new sliding glass sunroof, which is available for all coupes. Porsche hasn’t published any pictures in which we can see this new goodie clearly, although it is present in the press images for the aforementioned 4S Coupe, but these use angles that don’t allow us to see too many details.

This new feature, which, by the way, seems to have already been present in the US (take a look at Lindsay Lohan’s crashed 911, which had its sunroof wide open), is a new piece in our Porsche 911 991 Targa speculation puzzle and we’re inviting you to read more about the future of this glass-addicted model here.

In addition to that, the 911 range also received the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) function, which controls driving speed, as well as the distance to the vehicle ahead. If you order ACC together with PDK, the first works together with the safety function Porsche Active Safe to help prevent front-end collisions.

Last but by no means least, the Sport Chrono pack offered in combination with a manual now features automatic double declutching during downshifts for the Sport Plus mode.
