The Porsche 996 was released for production in 1997 and carried on until 2004. The 996 was a massive step forward in comparison to it's predecessor, undergoing major design and performance changes which included:
Designed by Pinky Lai and Harm Lagaay, the 996 underwent major exterior and interior design and development. The body received a more sleeker and smoother design along with a more raked windscreen and the signature "fried egg" headlights which the 996 is most famous for. More changes were in store for the 996 from 2000 with the introduction of Porsche's all wheel drive system which was introduced in the 996 Turbo. In 2002, more technical upgrades and improvements were being implemented for the newer models being released, one of which being the increased displacement of the engine to 3.6L for the whole 996 range from that year onwards and the introduction to the Carrera 4S and 4S Cabriolet.
Power output for the Carrera 4S hit 320 bhp from it's 3.6L naturally aspirated flat six engine, which gives it the ability to launch well from a standstill to 100km/h in just 5.4 seconds and will make it to it's top speed of just shy of 280km/h.
This example of the C4S is a late cabriolet version from 2004 with 69235km. It has the Atlas Grey Metallic exterior with a black leather interior with the embossed Porsche crest located in the headrests
