    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    Temm,

    one thing i want to say is:

    in the road

    I CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 996 C4S AND 997 C2S

    and the difference is only 22mm as you said..

    so now with the 997 C4S the difference is double 44 mm


    So it must definetely be obvious

    I think that that difference is emphasized by the red stripe between the taillights, this horizontal accent makes the car look larger , take it away and the effect will be less.
    To give a comparison look here for the normal 996 with a similar stripe: here

    Also has the 996 a straight cut bumper , which also makes the line off the back larger

    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    okey but the 996 turbo does not have the line and still looks wider from the 997 S


    I agree that the line creates an ilussion but in the turbo case?

    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    BTW thanx for the link, i would like to see similar for the 997 form cargraphic!

    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    I liked the rear reflector too - anything that ties in with the 993 looks good to me (okay, I'm a throw-back)

    I don't think an aftermarket reflector will be feasible on the 997c4s, because the rear bumper no longer lines up with the break lights with a flat, horizontal seam.

    I love the pic in that link - including the spoiler. To have the 993ish body, with the present-day 996/7 driveability would really be something.

    Yes official pics, and No, no red stripes.
    Perfect for me.
    I'm one of those who really didn't like the red stripe, cheap!
    As I wrote before, very nice on old air cooled models where the red stripes belonged to one line and much lower on the car body but on the 996, it really looked like a cheap add on.



    Here's a comparison of the 996 C4S with and without the red stripe. I wonder if you can order a bodycolor strip from Porsche Exclusive..

    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    Without.

    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    The red stripe does make it look larger.....but without it , it looks so much better!

    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    I really prefer the old style exhausts (both the single and interlocking twin type) to the 997's current tips...I especially don't like the PSE's different sized tips....If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!

    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    Red strip makes it look dated, I like the new C4S, and since I am now looking forward to a 997TT, I wouldn't want the C4S to look like the 997TT.

    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    the line i drew shows a huge difference (approx 37%) in the width. I drew from the shadow, but quite possibly its just a photoshop which is distorted to make it appear even wider.

    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    Interesting. I still like the 996C4S better in all respects.

    Re: Carrera S - Carrera 4S comparison picture

    The C4S looks much wider in the above picture; it looks very obvious, probably even more so in the flesh.
