A young classic that combines sport luxury with practicality. The 2003 Carrera 4S is a turn of the century treat for auto enthusiasts of any era. Porsche’s 996 generation (1997-2006) saw the company take a relatively fresh breath of air in regards to their design philosophy.
Uncharacteristically, Porsche was facing financial difficulties heading into the new millennium. This was due to Porsche’s pride and a reluctance to innovate within the 1990s. Luckily, Porsche was forced to do what they do best: engineer world class vehicles. The development of the 996 was a calculated move in a frugal direction. Focused on revamping and reviving the brand, the 996 generation 911 saw the most changes since the development of the original Porsche 911.
Visually, The 996 Carrera 4S is unique within Porsche's fleet. While the vehicle is basically an all wheel drive 911, the rear end of the 4S borrows its styling off of the 911 Turbo. It was the only turbo-less 996 to do so. Said rear end houses the 4S’s 3.2 litre straight six engine that produces both 315 horses, and a smile on its drivers face. The 4S also borrows the Turbo’s larger brakes and stiffer suspension. The focused engineering was a success. Porsche proved that cutting costs where possible does not equate to diminishing returns on lavishness or performance.
