4WD Week: 1996 Porsche 911 C4S

I suppose it’s fitting that 4WD Week here at GCFSB coincides with the first snow of the year. Not that many owners of a 911 would feel much desire to take their car out into the snow, whether it happens to be a Carrera 4 or not, and they certainly would never consider such a thing with this car. Here we have a 1996 Porsche 911 C4S that has covered less than 10,000 miles and I would be shocked if a single snowflake had ever dare to touch its bonnet. The C4S came with much of the looks of its more capable turbo-charged sibling, minus the Turbo’s rear wing, but retained its 3.6 liter naturally aspirated engine. For many 911 fans the Carrera S in either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive configuration has been a favorite due to its wider rear fenders and on the 993 the design is particularly appealing.

About the C4S

The Carrera 4 S shared the Turbo model’s bodyshell, but housed the naturally aspirated Carrera engine in the rear.

1997 Porsche 911 C4S

It’s hard to be a German car enthusiast and not be a fan of the Porsche 911. Almost every week we feature one here at GCFSB. From the original 901 to the recently introduced 991, these sports cars have captured the hearts and minds of a number of petrolheads across generations. One 911 that stands out is the 993, the last of the air-cooled models. Available in a variety of flavors, one of my favorites is the C4S. Sure, the Turbo model offered more power and the trademark whale tail spoiler, but there’s something subtle about the C4S that appealed to me. Perhaps it’s because I’ve always been somewhat averse to forced induction engines (yes, I know, I owned an R53 Cooper S…) or maybe it’s because I like the road less traveled when it comes to a vehicle configuration. Whatever the case may be, this 1997 Carrera 4S with just about 20,000 speaks to me.

The color of this 911 caught my attention. Rob featured a Speed Yellow 993 recently, but I’m much more of a fan of this Pastel Yellow. This is one of those colors you just don’t see a lot of. We’re all familiar with the fact that 993s are not the cheapest of 911s and this example certainly isn’t cheap.…

Wednesday Wheels: great options from BBS

BBS. Few letters cross boundaries of generations and marques of cars like BBS do. Renowned as some of the highest quality OEM, aftermarket and racing wheels available, BBSs have been selected by nearly all of the marques we feature as stock wheels or wheel upgrades, and many tuners still select them. In the heady 1980s, BBS really defined the aftermarket wheel category with it’s evergreen RS models, still highly sought after by most enthusiasts. Today we’re going to look at some different BBS options, each for a different marque. Let’s start with some popular BBS RMs – the two piece version of the RS, originally fit to 2.0 16V GTis between 1990 and 1992, but look great on 2002s, 320s, E30s, and most VWs:

When I originally saw the “Lobster Claw” wheels fitted to the then new 997 C2S/C4S, I loved the design. For me it’s one of those intangible items I can’t completely define, but I just love how 997s look with these. Porsche OEM wheels are always pricey, but these would be a great upgrade to an earlier non-S model or return one to stock.…
