Porsche 996 Carrera 4S
-One ride and you will understand why most rocket scientists are German. –
A model in which many goodbyes were said and many more doors were correctly opened. Welcome water cooling, aerodynamics and a completely new undertrain. 4 valves per cylinder and the biggest, lightest and of course fastest “standard” Carrera ever. A 3.4 and pretty soon after that even 3.6 liters of Stuttgart thrust. Liquid cooled and the first ‘not Ferdinand approved’ 911. Will it turn over in its air-cooled heaven? We think not.
Back in 1969, Porsche was already working on very unwise, life-threatening, but mostly fun toys. For example, a 6.0 boxer was ready on the shelf for the 917, with 770 Stuttgart horses(!). However, this remained in the play-lab and never saw daylight. What they did retain from it were the turbocharger and limited slip diff. Ferdinand is proud of that, we think.
The 996 Carrera 4S is considered by most of us to be the holy grail of the “omelet” headlight generation. With its wide bum, thick slippers and all-wheel drive, you can corner obscenely hard without taking that rhododendron from the neighbor across the street. It’s not only the best driving, but also the most handsome. No spoilers, but it does have Kardashian buttocks, Turbo rims and extra air vents. Pffieet Pfffieeuw!
Ours? Warmed up her first laps in Switzerland. Manual transmission. Black interior. Completely original paint, and like many Swiss full of nice options. Just broken in, straight from a collection. As a result, this one is on the endangered species list…. Again looking for a pampered and caring nest. Heated under cover, if possible. Bis bald!
Was passiert, wenn man 24 Stunden lang Vollgas fährt? Nichts, wenn es ein Porsche ist.I'm interested in this object
