1995 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet


1995 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet

In 1995, Porsche offered the larger Turbo bodywork on the Carrera 4 and called it the Carrera 4S. Also included were the larger brakes, upgraded suspension and interior bits.

Outwardly, the 4S was very close to the Turbo model without the large rear wing. Very similar 18 inch wheels were fitted and covered the red-calipers from the Turbo line.
