1995: 911 (993) Carrera 4S

The 911 Carrera 4S became the new top model of the Carrera model line in autumn 1995. In appearance, the 911 Carrera 4S resembled the 911 Turbo, but, as the 4S did not need a charge air cooler, it did not have the large rear wing of the Turbo and thus had the extendable rear wing of the Carrera. The 911 Carrera 4S was supplied only with 6-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive. Standard equipment on the vehicle also included the powerful brake system of the 911 Turbo and 18-inch rims in the Turbo design, but which were made with monobloc brake callipers instead of the hollow-spoke technology of the Turbo. The chassis is 10 mm lower in the front and 20 mm lower in the rear.
