Porsche 996 Carrera 4S Tiptronic.
With it’s wide-body, brakes and suspension the 4S resembles the 996 Turbo – but equipped with the naturally aspirated 3.6 liter / 315 HP flat-6 delivering great performance. The AWD drivetrain with PSM / Porsche Stability Management ensures exceptional handling even in the challenging weather we have here in the NW.
3-owners from new and original books included. Just back from a 2000 mile road-trip through the southwest and up the coast. Fun car for a fair price – ready to enjoy.

Because (of 2002’s) changes to Porsche’s long-lived 911 series were extensive, only the addition of an in-dash CD player is new for the 2003 model year. Porsche’s 2003 lineup includes seven versions: the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) Carrera coupe, convertible and Targa coupe; the all-wheel-drive (AWD) Carrera 4 Cabriolet (convertible) and 4S coupe; the higher-powered AWD Turbo coupe; and the limited-production 911 GT2.
Freshly shaped at the front end in 2002, the 911 has Turbo-like headlights and a wider rear-end panel above restyled oval exhaust tailpipes. Additional power also emerged in 2002 as the rear-mounted six-cylinder engine grew from 3.4 liters to 3.6 liters and from 300 to 315 horsepower. The body structures were also strengthened <snip>First introduced in 1996, the current Carrera 4S was “created in the image of the 911 Turbo,” says Porsche spokesperson Robert Carlson. In fact, the basic coupe body, suspension and AWD system are shared with the 911 Turbo. The front end resembles that of the Turbo, but the Turbo’s large air intakes are not needed.
The 4S has the same automatic-deploying rear spoiler that the other 911 models have; it raises at 75 mph and lowers at 50 mph. Solid-spoke wheels hold 18-inch tires. Porsche’s Stability Management System is standard on the 4S and Carrera 4 Cabriolet and optional on the other models.
