Car reviews - Porsche - 911 - Carrera 4S coupe
8 Aug 2002
By MARTON PETTENDY
LIKE all 911s, the C4S offers minimal conventional luggage space because of its lack of a rear boot. However, the front differential further reduces space under the bonnet in the C4S, which offers 100 litres of load space compared to the standard 911's 130 litres. C4S's different front-end componentry necessitated the relocation of the space-saver spare wheel from inside the load area to below the boot floor, meaning the load space is wider but shallower than other 911s but still good for an overnight bag. Inside, there is a reasonably well sized, lined, lit and lockable glovebox, while another lockable centre console compartment hides beneath the centre armrest and is good for CD-sized bits and pieces. Deep, lidded compartments below the armrests in both front doors are well concealed. Both the bonnet and bootlid feature gas struts, there is a single 12-volt outlet, a number of coat hangers and twin flip-out cupholders up front, but no grabrails.
Did you know?The Porsche 356 scored its first international success in motor racing in 1951, winning the 1100cc category in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. By 1956, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the company, the 10,000th Porsche 356 rolled off the production line
