Our test consumption
The Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabrio has a 3.0 liter, 480 hp six-cylinder boxer engine that demands Super Plus. According to the WLTP standard, it consumes 11.0 liters per 100 kilometers. In our test, the Porsche swallowed 10.9 liters, which means fuel costs of 19.72 euros for this route. The Eco consumption value is significantly lower at 7.9 liters - the petrol costs here are 14.29 euros. Sports drivers chase an average of 13.7 liters through the six combustion chambers - that makes 24.79 euros. The fuel costs are calculated using the daily updated fuel price on our partner portal mehr-tanken.de (as of January 26, 2022, Super Plus: 1.81 euros per liter).
Monthly maintenance costs
The annual vehicle tax for the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabrio is 536 euros. According to Allianz Direct , liability insurance costs 263 euros in the same period. A partially comprehensive insurance costs 196 euros per year, fully comprehensive insurance pays 1,377 euros. If you drive 15,000 kilometers a year, you have to budget for monthly costs of 493 euros. At 30,000 kilometers, the amount increases to 920 euros. Added to this is the loss of value.
How to test
The auto motor und sport test consumption consists of three differently weighted consumption runs. So-called “commuter consumption” accounts for 70 percent. This is a journey from home to work, which averages 21 kilometers. A particularly economical, approx. 275-kilometre-long eco-lap is included in the rating with 15 percent. The remaining 15 percent is accounted for by the sports driver lap. The length is roughly the same as the eco lap, but the route includes a larger proportion of motorway and thus higher speeds on average. The calculation basis for the fuel costs is always the price information of the portal "more refueling" from the day the article was created.
The monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, wear part costs and vehicle taxes assuming an annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 kilometers without loss of value. The calculation is based on the test consumption, a three-year holding period, no-claims class SF12 for liability and fully comprehensive insurance with Allianz Direct, including discounts for garage parkers and the restriction to certain drivers (accident-free/15,000 km per year, resident in the postcode area 70174, not under 21, partner drivers older than 25 years).
