    Porsche 991 Carrera 4S Swiss Edition

    Porsche Switzerland just announced a limited model, based on the Carrera 4S.

    It comes in PTS "Grauschwarz" (Color used on 997 GT3 RS MkII), with all exterior parts painted

    Car is equipped with:
    - 2+2 year warranty (standard in Switzerland)
    - X51 package
    - PDK only
    - Sport Design front fascia
    - Sport Design mirrors
    - Black headlights (PDLS)
    - 20"Sport Classic wheels, painted in exterior color
    - Sport PASM
    - Black leather interior with red deviated stitching
    - Sport Design Steering wheel with red stitching and red 12 hour marking
    - Special doorsills with Swiis flag

    Owner also gets a personalized gift box (whatever that may be??) and a Hardcover Photobook of the production of that specific car.

    And probably some other things, that I don't know of yet.
    Porsche will produce only 14 of these and it will cost CHF 233,000





    Porsche website doesn't say anything about it yet, but here is a link (in German):

    Re: Porsche 991 Carrera 4S Swiss Edition

    Great choice of color . A premise to the next GTS ..... BUT : the price is insane !!!!!!!!  ( 1.00 CHF = 1.10 $ ) 

    To our US members : You now can see how crazy Swiss Porsche prices are compared to other countries . This car cost MORE then a base Lambo Huracan  ( CHF 226'900 )  mail

    People in this country are crazy to accept such prices ...... and I guess, if Porsche is pricing this way, they do find enough customers ...... But for how long ?  All others have come down with pricing ( Ferrari, McLaren, Lambo , Mercedes, BMW and adapted to  EU pricing )

    Re: Porsche 991 Carrera 4S Swiss Edition

    Aside from the doorsills and the photos from the production line, judging from the description above ,the remaining  are all options available through the standard option list or through Exclusive. 

    The price is frightening but color beautiful.

    That's exactly my problem with Porsche here in Switzerland. I'm not paying that much for a 911. The car isn't worth it....
    For the majority of potential buyers, the Boxster gives 90% of the experience for half the price (which is still too high, but at least the Boxster doesn't have any competition).

    That said... I like how this Swiss Edition looks.

    Next will be the Bulgarian Edition covered in rust and primer.......no disrespect meant to any Bulgarians


    Re: Porsche 991 Carrera 4S Swiss Edition

    Wow! What a SPECIAL EDITION! Please everyone, calm down. This is not the time to loose control. A gift box? GIFT BOX?! What could it be? A Porsche key ring? A Porsche golf ball? A Porsche pic-nic set with the Swiss cross on? Ooh, the excitement is overwhelming.

    *zzz*

    Seriously, is it 1st of April? CHF 233k for a true parts bin special in left-over color from the previous RS.

    BTW the Huracan is not such a great drive according to tests. Too much understeer and not very exciting for its type.

    I was told by a Swiss that in the CH many people appreciate things in accordance to their price. The more something costs the more it is respected.  Maybe, Porsche do their pricing according to this mentality Smiley

    Smiley You're rotally right. Just specced a similar car on the configurator, without the wheels, deviated stitching and PTS (together somehere around CHF 15k I guess) and that's just over CHF 200k. That's including the interior package-plus and I don't even know if that is equipped.

    That CHF 233k is a rediculous price. Wonder what's in that gift box....  A Rolex??Smiley

    Re: Porsche 991 Carrera 4S Swiss Edition

    VW and Skoda , and sometimes Subaru, Toyota , have always done ''  special Swiss editions '' , consisting of a pack of options and a little sticker .  It is usually good as it gives a bargain over the single picked options .

    In this case it is no bargain .... and drives the price of the car to some ridiculous level for a Carrera . 

    We do have a culture of : What costs more is better  . Thinking we get better quality .  Probably P's marketing is playing on this with the Swiss prices . Maybe it still works ? It would be interesting to see the sales figures ....

    It could make the new cars more exclusive as many people will not be able to afford a new Carrera .... Just that depreciation is extremely bad and it could start to irritate customers too much ......

    Re: Porsche 991 Carrera 4S Swiss Edition

    Car looks stunning.

    But - why would I buy this for that price? This is more than insane!

    Also - if you have that swiss flag on it, the car might only be desirable in Switzerland - your resell market is shrinking badly!


    Re: Porsche 991 Carrera 4S Swiss Edition

    There was already a 993 Carrera Swiss Plus edition. So it is nothing new. The price level seems new indecision

    I can understand that with classic/rare cars, but a modern car as well?

    If I'd be running to the dealer, it would be to know what's in the gift box! Smiley I don't care for the car... i wanna know what's in there!

    On a more serious note,  I like how the car looks (except for the wheels), but the price is just rediculous, unless the car is full of other expensive options like Burmester, adaptive cruise, etc., that aren't mentioned in the articles on 20minuten and Billanz.

    When I was looking for a C4S, mine came also up to about CHF 230k, but that was with all the options I wanted, including for example, leather to sample and paint to sample. Still a rediculous price though... C4S is absolutely a great car and still my favourite 911, but the car simply isn't worth that amount of money, even with all the options.

    Blueline's order has been rejected from what I hear because he is not Swiss. The order book for this limited edition is not open to just Swiss residents.

    Anyway, I like the sports front bumper (apron) which also aids stability judging by its effectiveness on the 997 and the colour looks good in the pictures.

    I'm not a fan of ducktails to be honest. Although,  i have to admit that on some cars it does look nice. I prefer the more clean look, especially with the C4S, because of the light strip. No sunroof, no wing or ducktail. Just the clean shape of the 991.
