Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupé

In 1988, Porsche launches the third generation of the 911, internally called Type 964. Featuring 85 percent new components and parts, the 911 has undergone a revamp and is delivered to Porsche fans around the world initially in the all-wheel drive version, dubbed 911 Carrera 4. Torque is distributed electro-hydraulically and variably between the axles via a transaxle system. In 1988, the completely redesigned 3.6-litre engine with dual ignition is the most powerful naturally-aspirated 911 motor so far – and the first in a passenger car to feature a metal-core catalytic converter. Also new are the light-alloy control arms and coil springs instead of the torsion bar suspension. With a fully enclosed underbody and an automatically-extending rear spoiler, the 911 Carrera 4 sets new aerodynamic standards. The ABS and power steering, now ex-works, captivate drivers not only with sporty performances but also with enhanced comfort.
