The first production Porsche with all-wheel drive appeared in 1989 with the 964 generation. However, these cars were often criticized for a relative lack of sportiness. In 1994, Porsche launched the 993 generation, and the 4-wheel drive version was presented at the Paris Motor Show. The 993 Carrera 4 offered the same technical and aesthetic features as the normal Carrera, and inaugurated a completely new all-wheel drive system, 50% lighter than that fitted to the 964 generation.

At the end of 1995, Porsche introduced the Carrera 4S, which, with its well-thought-out Turbo Look, made the car even sexier than a normal 993, thanks in particular to its wider, more curved rear wings.

The 4S features much of the look of the Turbo, with a front spoiler and sportier rocker panels. The car’s ride height is lower than that of a normal 993 (-10 at the front and -20 at the rear), and the Turbo’s 18″ wheels are used. The 4S takes over the Turbo’s chassis, as well as the big brakes with red 4-piston calipers in 322 and 299 mm.

The 4S is also better equipped than a standard 993, as it comes standard with Full Leather (full leather at Porsche includes the dashboard).

Mechanically speaking, no improvements have been made. The engine remains the 3.6 Varioram developing 285 hp (except for the optional 300hp X51 version) on the 4S. The 272 hp was never offered on the 4S.

Around 30 kilos heavier than a standard 993, the 4S is a little less powerful and a little more clumsy. The difference remains minimal, however, unless you push the car to its limits. Nevertheless, in our eyes, it remains one of the most beautiful 993s ever produced.
