2002 Porsche Carrera 4S
The Pros:All wheel drive. Wide body.
In 2002, Porsche gave the 996-generation Carrera (911) a face-lift.&nbsp; The headlights changed to be more oval shaped, larger displacement engine (from 3.4 to 3.6L), and other improvments.
</p> <p>The Carrera 4S (some call it the C4S) for the 996-generation debuted in 2002 and remained in production until 2005.</p> <p>Some specs off the top of my head:</p> <ul> <li>320 hp</li> <li>273 ft-lb of torque</li> <li>AWD</li> <li>0-60 mph in roughly 5.0 seconds</li> <li>averages about 20 mpg</li> </ul> <p>It's a great all around enthusiast's car.&nbsp; All wheel drive handling is great for the winter.&nbsp; Beautiful sounding exhaust (try to find one with the factory sports exhaust).&nbsp; Fast enough.</p> <p>If you want the 4S cabriolet, it was first offered in 2003.</p> <p>My previous car was a Porsche Boxster S.&nbsp; Although the Carrera 4S is a larger car, believe it or not, the Boxster S had more storage space due to the 2 trunks.&nbsp; Heavier (especially in the rear) than the Boxster S and you can feel it, but you can also feel the additional power.</p>
