Porsche 911 Carrera 4: Switching to Haldex AWD system?

Porsche Carrera 4
There’s a rumor flying around that Porsche will switch to a Haldex-based AWD system for the Porsche Carrera 4 due to the tighter collaboration with the Volkswagen Group.

Reports are now circulating, however, that Stuttgart is preparing to dump its own tried-and-tested in-house four-wheel-drive system for an outsourced Haldex transmission, reportedly equipped with the latest electronic limited slip differential. The rumors come at an interesting time for Porsche, considering that a wide range of vehicles from the Volkswagen Group into which Porsche just acquired majority interest – including VWs, SEATs, Skodas, Audis and even the Bugatti Veyron – use the Haldex. If the reports are accurate, the system could be out on the next iteration of the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 as well as the 911 Turbo spied while undergoing cold weather testing in Scandinavia just last month.
