Black is a popular color, especially among the Elfers. Not very imaginative, you say? Let’s put it this way: there is a reason why the Porsche 911 regularly shows itself in dark attire. After all, the sporty and iconic contours are self-explanatory. The 997 4S Cabriolet does not have to prove anything in that respect. Moreover, the German beauty is excellent both optically and technically for daily use. And you also know: black is never boring. Certainly not when it is called Basalt Black or Basaltschwarz; a typical Porsche name.
Regardless of the color scheme, the 4S traditionally emphasizes the wide flared wheel arches. The characteristic continuous red band between the rear light units should of course not be missing. Speaking of lighting: on the facelifted Porsche 997.2, it consists of modern LEDs. The timeless Porsche design does not betray itself in that respect either. Beautiful! Equally iconic in design, the 5-spoke wheels are 19-inch in size, providing a clear view of the red brake calipers behind them.
Options & extras
Sports car or not, scanty equipment is not in the dictionary of the Porsche 911 Carrera. Starting with the seating position: it must of course always be ideal, especially when the 911 Cabriolet is pushed to the limit. And since the limit is very far … This neatly tidy example is equipped with electric seat adjustment and the seats are also heated, in case you want to take it a bit easier during the winter months. In addition, Climate & Cruise Control were ticked on the option list. The wind catcher is extra comfortable; After all, the 997.2 cuts through the air very fast and the last thing you want is for that same air to end up like a boomerang in your neck with the roof open. And if the hood is still down, turn on the sports exhaust right away.
Technology & performance
That sports exhaust ex-factory is nothing more and nothing less than a perfect reflection of the engine in the rear: the 6-cylinder boxer simmers and roars violently. In the Carrera 4S, the 3.8 liter power source delivers 385 hp. In combination with all-wheel drive and a super-fast PDK transmission, the 0-100 km / h sprint only needs to take 4.7 seconds. The top speed is at 295 km / h against the magical 300 limit. Perhaps even more impressive is how the 997.2 Cabriolet seems to stick to the asphalt, as it were; the Porsche has that much grip! In short, business or private, with this Prins mobile you will not have to miss a meeting in the future. Kind
