    There is one fact that seems poorly addressed: if AWD is really "better", then why isn't it available on the Carrera GT, GT2, and GT3?



    Because these cars feel better on track, AWD feels better on everyday roads.



    Can you explain why that is? I mean, why wouldn't AWD feel good on a track too? And if RWD feels better on a track, why wouldn't it feel better on regular roads as well? The issue shouldn't be confused with a discussion regarding suspension - just AWD vs RWD.



    I am not a suspension engineer. But isn't it very hard to find the right balance if you had a car with small distance between the the front and the rear axle and you have a unequal weight distribution. As I can imagine (and I think I have heard about) putting some weight to the front axle helps the overall setup for the 997 C4S.

    As a southern California driver I really don't have need for the AWD of the 4s. While I love the look that extra 44mm provides, the encroachment upon the already meager trunk would be too much,--in that I have a c2s CAB on order. I've been driving 911s since I was 22 (when I bought my first new one) and appreciate the little tail-happy sensation that the 2WD cars exhibit. I'm not buying the Carrera to impress anyone but me. If I was so into the California show-off craze I would simply buy a "4" and stick it on the back.
