In what was quite possibly an automotive design first, the development of the 997 generation was actually led by the cabriolet rather than the coupe. Despite being unprecedented, this was actually a far more logical way to work. Cabriolets present a unique set of problems so working on these first would mean the benefits would trickle down to the coupe. For example, because cabriolets don’t have a fixed roof, they struggle with chassis stiffness. Fixing this issue would make the coupes more rigid as well which would in turn improve performance. For the first time, the cabriolet versions were virtually on par with their coupe counterparts when it came to performance figures. Therefore the 997 cabriolets were by far the best generation for those who wanted to feel the wind in their hair without sacrificing performance.
Midway through the model cycle Porsche introduced a mid-range 911 that filled the gap between the Carrera and the GT3. Although they went on to produce an all wheel drive version, the C2 GTS was the only rear wheel drive car fitted with what was traditionally the C4’s wider body style and track. Both the C2 and C4 featured an upgraded 3.8L engine with an output of 413 hp. The C4 GTS is easily identifiable because of its distinctive reflective stripe positioned between the tail lights.
