Carrera 4S identity confirmed

Wednesday 19th January

Alleged Porsche statements shown to be incorrect

Following PistonHeads's spy shot story revealing the new 997 Carrera 4S, we now have a photo of a wheel of the P-car we snapped inscribed "Carrera 4S", and the following further details:

* the car is registered to Porsche
* the pics were taken within a 30 minute drive of Porsche's HQ
* the photographer had a good look under the car and established it is 4 wheel drive
* interior and brakes were typical for an S
* it's not the new GT3 (totally standard interior including rear seats)
* it's not the new turbo, because there weren't any side air intakes and no turbocharger
* the photographer had to run away because the driver of the car wasn't amused when he saw him with a camera!

Looking at the pics makes me think of RUF for some reason.

It's front splitter and airdam makes it a bit "off , but I do like the overall looks of it.

i'll admit the 997 wasnt exactly breathtaking when it was first introduced, but this looks pimp

zomg dood liek ugli!!1

Not too bad, actually. The side shots are good but from straight on the front is a little busy. The rear looks good, but it's right off a 996... ;)

I thought Porsche stopped making the c4s. it was cool to see them go back to their roots. I guess the c4s would make a great year round driver.
