“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
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.
Exterior
Our hand selected widebody Porsche 911 Carrera 4S looks stunning in its metallic coat of Sapphire Blue, a striking colour for the 991, especially with the 20-inch Turbo III lightweight alloy wheels with a Diamond Cut Finish and Gloss Black Edge The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. The optional SportDesign Front Bumper, SportDesign Wing Mirrors, Sports Suspension and factory painted side sills, panoramic glass sunroof and privacy glass complete the striking and bold look. 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 headlights and rear LED 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. The optional Panoramic Glass Tilt and Slide Sunroof works perfectly as well.
Interior
The C4S comes with the incredible 14-way electric Sports Seats that have the lumbar support system, 3-stage seat heating and position memory. The optional memory system stores the drivers seat position, both mirrors position and optional steering column position in each of the two original Porsche keys, plus 2 extra profiles accessed on the drivers door panel. An optional easy access function can also be enabled which moves the seat back and steering wheel up on entry/exit, making it easy to get in and out, even when you are parked in a tight space. The seat and wheel automatically return to their stored positions when you get in and put the key in the ignition. Just like the rest of the Black extended leather interior, they are in excellent condition and provide a perfect contrast to the Sapphire Blue bodywork. The optional leather Sport Design Steering Wheel displays when SPORT, SPORT PLUS or LAUNCH CONTROL is engaged, as well as full-size metal PDK gear shift paddles, allowing quick and effective manual gearshifts on demand. The Carbon Fibre Interior Trim, Centre Console and PDK Selector, as well as the Carrera 4S embossed armrest elevate the interior look significantly. The Alcantara headlining is a luxury addition to the interior, as well as the electric blind to cover the Panoramic Glass Tilt and Slide Sunroof. 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 naturally aspirated 3.8 litre flat six DFI engine, which addressed all previous weaknesses of the 996 and 997 first generation engines, and avoids turbo related issues of the later 991 generation 2 cars. 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 rare and desired PASM Sports Suspension, which includes the dashboard switch that stiffens the suspension in an instant, increasing connection to the road. The ride height is 20mm lower than the standard 911 Carrera suspension, and 10mm lower than the normal PASM suspension. The springs are harder and shorter, and the anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles are stiffer. Front spoiler lip and rear spoiler control are revised to further and chassis reduce lift at the front axle and even provide downforce at the rear axle. The improved aerodynamics provide even better performance.
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.
Our 911 Carrera 4S is equipped with the highly desired Porsche Switchable Exhaust (PSE) system, which unleashes a more sporty sound both on acceleration and lift off. With SPORT or SPORT PLUS mode enabled, the sound increases further, with pops and crackles when you lift off the throttle.
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.
