The 997 Was First Offered By Porsche In 2004 And Was To Be The Perfect Replacement For The Much Loved 996 Carrera Model, This New Introduction Was To Offer A Revised Body, A Healthy Increase Of BHP And Improved Porsche Technology. The First 997 Model Ran Until The Back End Of 2009.
The 3.8L Carrera S & 4S sits above the standard Carrera offering an increased bhp of 355 instead of the 321 offered on the Carrera model.
The 997 Carrera S & 4S had, as standard, 19-inch wheels that housed larger 330mm ventilated brake discs with red-painted calipers. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which was optional on the Carrera, was standard equipment on the 997 Carrera S & 4S. This allowed the driver to switch between a softer damper setting for everyday use that automatically firmed up during spirited cornering, and a Sports setting for serious driving on road or track. No longer did buyers have to choose between standard and Sports suspension when ordering the car – now they had the best of both worlds at the touch of a button.
