Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Targa 4 (type 997)

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Targa 4 (type 997)

Like the 964, 993 and 996, the 997-series 911 is also available with all-wheel drive in the form of the Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S. A new addition is the Carrera 4 GTS, which delivers more power. In this series, the 911 Targa is only available with all-wheel drive as the Targa 4 and 4S – a novelty in the 911 series.

Due to the wider track of the all-wheel drive, the body is slightly wider (44 mm) than that of the rear-wheel drive models. From the 2008 facelift, the Carrera 4 models are also immediately recognisable thanks to a continuous red reflector strip between the tail lights.
