“You learn something new about it on every journey, and by working with it you evolve new, subtle techniques for gaining the most from it. It rides extremely well, displaying the kind of suppleness only a structurally stiff chassis can provide, soaking up the worst that UK roads can throw at it and never being knocked off its stride. Grip levels are impressively high too, and with all that weight on the rear tyres traction never becomes an issue.”
EVO Magazine, 2006

The wide red reflector that runs across the whole of the wide rear end of the Turbo-bodied Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is iconic and instantly recognisable as a nod to the earlier air cooled 911s.

Background
The Carrera 4S model was first introduced in 2002, as part of the mid life upgrade which also included an engine upgrade to a 3.6 litre unit and revised front end with new headlight design. The C4S shares the wide-body of the Turbo as well as the brakes and suspension. The cost of the upgrade from Carrera 4 to Carrera 4S was £2610 in the UK. The Factory Aerokit fitted to our 4S was a £3,526 option, the Porsche Switchable Exhaust system was a further £1,160. Production of the Carrera 4S ceased in 2004, along with most other 996 generation 911 models, excluding the GT3, GT2 and Turbo S.

The Carrera 4S transformed the ‘good’ Carrera 4 into a truly great car. It added choice upgrades from the Turbo and a key styling cue from previous 911 models – that red stripe across the rear. The Turbo wide body never looked so good. The all-wheel drive system sends between 5% – 40% of torque forward depending on traction and power applied, so it is mostly rear wheel drive. The aluminium Turbo 5-spoke alloy wheels suit the rest of the car down to a tee. Crucially, the Carrera 4S shares the 911 Turbo suspension and 13-inch vented, cross- drilled steel disc brakes, which takes handling up a notch. Today, it seems that the 996 is starting to be recognised among collectors, the GT2, GT3 and Turbo are highly sought, as are cars like this Carrera 4S.

Exterior
Our hand selected Porsche 911 Carrera 4S looks stunning in its metallic coat of Basalt Black, an optional colour for the car. The Factory Fitted Aerokit enhances the styling of the 4S even further. The striking silver Turbo 5-spoke alloy wheels are the perfect contrast to the deep and glossy paintwork. The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. The Carrera 4S has been waxed with Autoglym High Definition Wax by us, which will help protect the paintwork and repel surface contaminants. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front and rear lights, which are free from any damage or moisture buildup. The windows drop as they should when you open the door. The engine and boot struts also operate as they should.

Interior
The Black leather heated memory, fully electric with driver memory and rest of the interior leathers are in excellent condition and provide a perfect pairing to the Basalt Black metallic bodywork. There are no marks or signs of wear to any of the trim, panels or switchgear, with the leather retaining a wholly fresh appearance throughout. The sleek aesthetic is topped-off with features like the Porsche Exclusive Aluminium handbrake lever and gearknob, which also has a coloured Porsche crest and is in superb condition.

Engine and Transmission
Our 911 Carrera 4S is equipped with the 3.6 litre flat six engine. The Carrera 4S engine provides an extra 15bhp of power (taking output to 315bhp) and an additional 15 lb·ft of torque (increasing 273 lb·ft). The four valves per cylinder and inclusion of Variocam Plus (as opposed to Variocam on the earlier 996) improved power delivery through the rpm range. The axle load distribution of 40:60 ensures high directional stability and superb road behaviour.

The all-wheel drive system is biased towards the rear; the system sends between 5% – 40% of torque forward depending on traction and power applied. The engine starts cleanly when cold or hot, there is no smoke whatsoever either at startup or when driving. There are no unusual sounds or rattles when the engine is running.

With its compact design and low weight, the 6 speed manual gearbox is a simple, direct way to tap into the power of the 911 Carrera 4S. The manual transmission system provides short gearshift travel and precise lever movement, giving you the highest possible level of accessibility with the minimum of fuss.

Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our 911 Carrera 4S comes fitted with the 18 inch ’5-Spoke’ Turbo design alloy wheels, which are unmarked, free of damage and corrosion. The Turbo brakes are phenomenal, cross drilled and vented discs front and rear. The front and rear brake discs and pads have plenty of life left in them, showing no lip on the edges. The tyres are matching Pirelli P Zero items with 5-6mm of tread on the front and rear.
