Porsche 911 Carrera 4 (997) ~ 2005-2008
The new Carrera 4 used the same 325bhp 3.6-litre engine as the standard Carrera, but this time driving all four wheels via a multi-disk viscous coupling. This transferred between five and 40 percent of the traction to the front wheels, thus giving balanced handling and improved traction on slippery surfaces.
However, the 997 gave a new twist to the Carrera 4 angle – it was 44mm wider at the rear than the two-wheel-drive version, thus allowing wider 295/35ZR18 tyres to be fitted, and giving the car a more aggressive appearance.
The Carrera 4 offers an even more complete package then the standard version and, with the wider rear arches, looks even better, too.
