In 1969 Porsche was already working on very unwise, life-threatening, but mostly fun toys. For example, there was a 6.0 boxer ready on the shelf for the 917, with 770 Stuttgart horses(!). However, this remained in the play lab and never saw the light of day. What they did get out of it were the turbocharger and the limited slip diff. And those, she used eagerly, Greta!
The 996 Carrera 4S is considered by most to be the holy grail of the ‘omelet’ headlight generation. With its wide bum, thick slippers and all-wheel drive, you can corner outrageously fast without taking down that rhododendron from the neighbor across the street. It is not only the best driving, but also the most handsome. No spoilers, but it does have Kardashian’s buttocks, Turbo rims and extra air vents. Pffieet Pffieeuw!
Ours? As a first owner, pretty few had the guts to touch this color. Speed Gelb. Manual transmission. Beige interior. Just broken in, straight from a collection. Therefore it is on the list of endangered species. Again looking for a pampered and caring nest. Heated under cover, if possible. Bis bald!
What happens when you drive full throttle for 24 hours? Nothing, if it’s a Porsche.
