Porsche 996 C4 S Tiptronic.
When Porsche introduced the 996 in 1998, it heralded a big departure from the timeless 911 concept, for not only was it radically different to its predecessor, but for the first time a Porsche 911 was water cooled. Stringent emissions/noise regulations, a higher expectation for refinement and a high-performance, 4-valves per cylinder engine made the switch necessary. Other major changes include a completely new platform topped with a sleeker body, a more raked windscreen, and a redesigned interior. The new car was far more practical too, with more space for touring, a roomier cabin and a structure that was 45% stiffer, yet despite all of this, the 996 was 50kg lighter than the outgoing model.
In response to customer demand, the four-wheel drive Carrera 4S was introduced in 2003 fitted as standard with many options including a wider body with turbo-style wheels, lowered suspension, and a sports exhaust coupled to the 3.6ltr engine which developed 320bhp. Aided by the inclusion of ‘Variocam plus’ which improved power delivery through the range, the car was capable of 0-60mph in 5 seconds and a top speed of 174mph.
