The introduction of the 996 in 1998 represented two major changes, a water-cooled (rather than air-cooled) flat-six engine, and wider body shell. Powered by the sublime 3.6 litre 320bhp flat-six engine, the Carrera 4S is capable of a speed of up to 175mph. The cars wide-bodied shell permits the widest of wheel tracks and enough space underneath the enlarged arches to house a vast 18-inch alloy. With stiffened suspension and a 10mm lowered ride height than its immediate predecessors, combined with other mods this Carrera 4S translates into sublime handling with high levels of grip and stopping power. Neutral steering is combined with immaculate body control, remaining flat and taunt even when cornering at high speeds.
Inside, the 996's new dashboard represented another major departure from tradition, being considerably more complex than anything seen hitherto in a 911, boasting a 'PCM' (Porsche Communication Management) centre console incorporating controls for the radio and air conditioning.
A superbly civilised car, with the performance of a supercar (0-60 in 5.1 seconds approx.), but boasts many everyday car attributes, for example, air conditioning, electric heated seats and Bose sound system. Other details include:
- Top-tinted windscreen
- 'Memory' seats
- Sports exhaust system
- Turbo look 18" wheels
- Six-speed manual transmission
- Rear wiper
- Power steering

- Litronic headlights
- Porsche crest embossed on headrest
- ‘Carrera’ door entry guards in carbon
