The 2013 Porsche Carrera is made for warm/mild-temperature ride. However, customers seem not to be satisfied with that. They want the Carrera all the time, even in the coldest possible climates. In order to satisfy its clients, Porsche board decided to produce an all-wheel drive 911. This version made 34% sales during the prior 997 generation, and that is not at all bad.
What else is different at the 2013 911 Carrera 4S? The fenders are wider for 1.7 inches, whereas the rear wheels for 10 millimeters.
In comparison to the normal-drive Carrera S, the S4 is 110 pounds heavier. Moreover, the installation of the base booms Carrera`s price for $6, 730. The 4S has dual-clutch transmission. It can run 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. Unfortunately, 4S is not a better version when it comes to performance. It runs 183 mph in comparison to the S which hits 188 mph. And the fuel economy numbers largely differ.
In regard to drive quality, both Carreras are comfty, providing great oomph.
The interior is refinely wrapped in leather. There are optional sport seats and an amazing Burmester audio system which is priced at $5, 010.
This Carrera has flax six-cylinder and optional sport exhaust. This grand vehicle deserves much better than the public roads. Therefore, it was tested at the Michigan International Speedway road course. The starting is easily efficient. The things are pretty much smooth behind the steering wheel.
This Porsche can be purchased at $106, 580 (its test price being $145, 305).
