Background
Production of the all-new generation 991-series 911 Carrera 4S began in 2012, it featured a revised 3.8 litre engine with Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) with increased power/torque, revised suspension system, lighter restyled body, larger air intakes, sculpted LED rear and front daylight running lights, all new Porsche Communication Management (PCM 3.1) System with touchscreen, hard drive navigation/music jukebox and Bluetooth audio streaming as well as phone connectivity (as options - fitted to this car). The 991-series Carrera 4S is 4.4cm wider than the 991 Carrera S and also features the iconic red rear light bar, which lights up, unlike previous generation 911s. Despite a 100mm longer wheelbase, overall length is only increased by around 40mm and weight is actually reduced by 45kg due to intelligent use of composite alloys that not only add up to 25% rigidity, but reduce weight too. The roofline is actually lower than the previous 997 generation 2, however cabin space has also significantly increased in all dimensions, making this an even more useable, yet stylish, updated 911 with clear classic Porsche lineage.
“Once again, Porsche has hit the nail absolutely plumb on the head with its most treasured sports car and gone straight back to the top of the class. The 991-generation Porsche 911 is a triumph. Those who frowned at the mention of so much efficiency-enhancing technology, or who suggested the 911 would somehow lose its dynamic sparkle this time around, should simply have had more faith in the company that has delivered this incredible car to into its fifth decade. Here’s the bottom line: at the limit of grip, the 991 still handles like a true 911. And during sporting road driving, it communicates, entertains and involves as vividly as any that proceeds it.”
CAR Magazine 2012
Exterior
Our hand selected widebody Porsche 911 Carrera 4S looks stunning in its gloss coat of Guards Red, a striking colour for the 991, especially with the 20-inch Carrera S lightweight alloy wheels in metallic silver. The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. The 911 Carrera 4S has been waxed with Autoglym Ultra 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 clear 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 4-way electric sports seats come with optional 3-stage heating, and just like the rest of the Black extended leather interior, are in excellent condition and provide a perfect contrast to the Guards Red bodywork. The optional leather multi-function steering wheel has all the key buttons to control the cars entertainment system and also has PDK gear shift buttons, allowing quick and effective manual gearshifts on demand. The Alcantara headlining is a luxury addition to the interior. 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.
Engine and Transmission
Our 911 Carrera 4S is equipped with the 3.8 litre flat six DFI engine, which addressed all previous weaknesses of the 996 and 997 first generation engines. The 911 Carrera 4S engine produces 400bhp and 325ft-lb of torque. The axle load distribution of approximately 40:60 ensures high directional stability and superb road behaviour. 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. Our 911 Carrera 4S is equipped with the highly desired PASM switchable sports suspension system, which includes the dashboard switch that stiffens the suspension in an instant, increasing connection to the road. PASM equipped cars also sit 10mm lower than non PASM cars. The Carrera 4S is also fitted with Sport Chrono Plus Package, which adds a SPORT and SPORT PLUS button that sharpen the throttle response, decreases shift speeds, hold gears for longer and blips the throttle on downshifts whilst also adding a dashboard mounted stopwatch to add to the sporting image of the C4S.
The optional 7-speed double-clutch PDK transmission system provides instant changes, unleashing the power of the engine with minimal fuss. Because it has been specified in combination with Sport Chrono Plus Package, it unlocks additional shift speeds in both SPORT PLUS and LAUNCH CONTROL modes. These modes are only available with these options selected from the factory along with PDK. They enable the Carrera 4S to respond and accelerate faster than the standard car, reducing the in-gear acceleration and the headline 0-60mph time by 0.4 seconds to just 3.9 seconds.
This Carrera 4S has the PADM dynamic engine/transmission mounts, which electronically control the oscillations and vibrations of the entire drivetrain, especially the engine. By adapting stiffness and damping characteristics to changes in driving style and road surface conditions, the dynamic gearbox mounts combine the benefits that otherwise distinguish hard and soft gearbox mounting arrangements. For the driver, the results are tangible. Handling is perceptibly more stable under load-change conditions and in fast corners. Whenever a less assertive driving style is adopted, the dynamic gearbox mounts automatically soften to enhance comfort. You experience the best of the best worlds—uncompromisingly sporty performance in corners, yet with a high degree of comfort. The Sport or Sport Plus button enables you to switch the dynamic gearbox mounts from Normal to Sport or Performance mode. In conjunction with the optional PCM, the TFT screen in the right-hand circular instrument enables you to view the lateral and longitudinal G-forces as they act on the vehicle.
A new feature of the 991-series Carrera 4S is Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) Plus, a system that actively enhances vehicle dynamics and stability. Operating in conjunction with the electronic rear locking differential, it works by braking the rear wheels as the situation demands, to improve steering response and steering precision by specific braking of the right or left rear wheel. To be more precise, this means that when the car is driven assertively into a corner, moderate brake pressure is applied to the inside rear wheel. Consequently, a greater amount of power is distributed to the outside rear wheel, inducing an additional rotational pulse (yaw movement) around the vehicle’s vertical axis. This results in a direct and sporty steering action as the car enters the corner. At high speeds and when accelerating out of corners, the rear differential lock ensures greater driving stability, outstanding traction, as well as greater agility, precise steering, and stable load transfer characteristics. In summary, the 991-series Carrera 4S offers unrivalled driving pleasure at every twist and turn.
This Carrera 4S also has the optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, PDCC, a new option available on the 991-series Carrera S models. It is an active anti-roll system that reduces lateral body movement during cornering. With this system, hydraulic stabilising actuators located at each wheel actively optimise wheel camber, their action moderated based on steering angle and lateral acceleration.
The result is more stable lateral load transfer, sharper turn-in, and improved dynamic performance. PDCC is also helpful in minimising the car’s lateral instability over uneven ground and in emergency maneuvres requiring sudden steering inputs. In simple terms, the vehicle holds the road better and you can steer through corners faster and in a more relaxed manner with greater ride comfort. In this way, PDCC contributes to a new benchmark in dynamic performance.
Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our 911 Carrera 4S comes fitted with the optional 20-inch Carrera S lightweight alloy wheels, which are original, unmarked, free of damage and corrosion. The brake discs and pads are in good condition with minimal wear. The tyres are N rated Pirelli P-Zero high performance tyres, the rears have just been replaced by us and the fronts have lots of tread left.
