The ultimate non-GT derivative of Porsche’s ground-breaking 996-series of 911, the Carrera 4S (often shortened by enthusiasts to C4S) was introduced in 2002. Utilising the same widened bodyshell, brakes and suspension as its Turbo sibling, the newcomer also benefited from the enlarged 3.6 litre engine common to most 996-series Generation II models. Rated at 320bhp / 273lbft, the DOHC flat-six was allied to either six-speed manual or five-speed Tiptronic transmission. Able to sprint from 0-60mph in 5.0 seconds and onto 174mph, the manual gearbox cars proved faster and more involving to drive but were not so adept in city traffic. Offering better grip and roadholding than the narrow-bodied Carreras and more refinement than the track-focused GT3 and GT2 variants, the Carrera 4S was deemed by many to be the ‘sweet spot’ in the 996 range. Only in production until 2005, just 17,298 C4S Coupes and 5,757 C4S Cabriolets were sold worldwide.
