Why It's Special: Introduced In 2002 and concluded in 2005, the 996 C4S marked the return of the 'S' version and wide-body, 'Turbo-Look', for the 996 chassis; as this was last witnessed on the 911 993's '2S' and '4S' Carreras (the 996 C4S currently stands as the last Carrera to 'factory feature' the Turbo's styling). Featuring the 996 Turbo's wide-body, front and rear bumpers, wheels, turbo specific all-wheel-drive, suspension, and braking system, but sans the turbo's rear spoiler, twin-turbocharged powerplant and weight (the manual-equipped 996 Turbo coupe weighs approximately 3,395 lbs., whereas this lovely C4S weighs in at around 3,240 lbs.), the C4S instead sports a naturally-aspirated flat-6, the instantly recognizable rear reflector strip (the strip along with the iconic wide-body are pure Porsche styling characteristics that are now standard issue on the 911 992), and the deploying Carrera-style spoiler. With an even sleeker appearance and naturally aspirated vigor, the C4S offers the Turbo's 'look' and near driving dynamics but in a package that is sensuously simplified, wholesome, and analog (now coveted motoring attributes that are missing today)! 911s have always proven to be visually stimulating, however, the 996 C4S is by far the prettiest 911, perhaps ever.
