· A glorious automobile for drivers who drive,
· Lovely all-leather interior,
· Corners like a witch,
· A fantastic growl when you put your foot down.
Let me admit it at once. Any time Len hands me a Porsche, I go on my special route. It has lots of wicked hairpins, roads where you play tunes on the gearbox, and where you can really push a car that loves it. Definitely a special time, for there’s really something distinctive about any Porsche. And the 4s is right at the top of my list. Equipped with a 355-hp, 3.8-liter flat six, the Carrera 4S is a lot of people’s dream car. And with good reason, for it’s refined Porsche performance at its best Only flared rear fenders reveal that you are in the all-wheel drive version, which loves hard launches from a standstill without the axle hop that can plague two-wheel versions. You acquire valuable extra traction without sacrificing more than a smidge in performance, if that—and a nice feeling of security if you are an average driver.
The cabin is a trifle austere, as is common in German automobiles. This car had the somewhat uncommon Makassar option, which gives you dark brown leather seats, also the leather interior option, which was expensive when new but well worth it. The front seats are very supportive, with heating for driver and passenger, an important consideration when you play among the hairpins. I started off by commuting in thick traffic, where the 4S behaved admirably. When traveling with the crowd, I stayed in automatic, which was a wise choice, so I could concentrate on surrounding traffic, using the throttle to seize strategic gaps—and to get out of the way of idiots (in small Japanese sedans and pickups), who wanted to race me. On the freeway, the car is magnificent and commendably quiet in sixth gear at cruising speeds, with acceleration that’s matched by few others on the road. About 4.2 seconds for 0 to 60 is impressive in any company. As we strolled along at 65, I yearned for a speed limitless freeway, a German autobahn or something like it, where I could motor along in over six-figure territory for hours. But, alas, it was not to be, so I just enjoyed the nice Bose stereo and the fresh air. This is definitely a Porsche in which you can cover distance with a Capital D, a compliment given the car’s stellar performance credentials. But please, dear reader, put the car into sport manual and head for the hills. Use the pedals on the steering wheel and play. Fast gear changes were exquisite, the acceleration out of even extreme corners fast, immediate, and controlled. Passing rapidly through slaloms was positively yummy. When I pushed the 4S, it stuck to the pavement like glue, with a reassuring poise that’s one of the car’s most attractive qualities for the average driver. The Carrera 4S is a versatile, very fast automobile that offers a nicely balanced combination of luxury and rapid performance. There’s a learning curve, of course, but not a daunting one, for this is a car you can enjoy as a daily driver and take to the country at the weekends to tear around at hair-raising, illegal speeds. When you venture above 4,000 revs, the car comes alive with a profoundly seductive but refined roar that is classically Porsche.
If you yearn to be a serious driver with the ability to drive fast safely, the Carrera 4S is a good starting point for affluent men and women who like the Porsche breed. This is a driver’s car, but the great attraction of the 4S for many average drivers is that it is reassuring and easy to drive. The car will urge you to go faster and play hard, and will allow you to do so safely and reliably. Enjoy
