    Different Driving Experience 2/4

    After falling in love with the 997S -20 during a 24 hour test drive I have ordered one and expect delivery in August. Does anyone have experience with the 2 and 4 (AWD) version of the same car? How different is the driving experience?
    I do take the car to ski trips but don't want to sacrifice driving pleasure.

    Re: Different Driving Experience 2/4

    Since you're going with the -20mm with LSD, that is a most sporting combo that deserves the lighter weight and more agile responses of the 2WD layout (just look at the GT2/3 and CGT for the company's thoughts on "sporty").

    Re: Different Driving Experience 2/4

    Since the 997 C4 is not on sale yet, you don't have many choices.

    Porsche's AWD setup in fact is for dynamic improvements and those are mainly to be experienced on the limit. If you are not driving your car mainly in these circumstances you should be able to skip this option.

    In fact the -20mm option is fabulous and very challenging yet rewarding. You will have tons of fun with that car!
