The 997 follows on from the 996, in that the two-wheel drive variants of the car are named simply 'Carrera' - although unlike the 996, two separate versions of the Carrera are available.
The 997 Carrera sits at the bottom of the range, and features a 3.6 litre variant of the ubiquitous flat-six powerplant, again water-cooled. The engine develops 325 bhp, enough for 0-62 mph in five seconds dead. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox, or a five-speed variant of the Tiptronic S sequential automatic - the 997's only automatic gearbox. The Carrera benefits from the 997's well-equipped and ergonomic interior, which features leather upholstery as standard, along with an in-dash screen.
The 997 Carrera S is the faster, more powerful, better equipped and more expensive Carrera variant. Fitted with a 3.8 litre engine which develops 355 bhp, the Carrera S marks the first 911 model in which Porsche has offered two different engine capacities within the one generation. Beating its 3.6 litre sibling to 62 mph by only 0.2 seconds, some would question the extra outlay required for that S badge. However, the Carrera S features generous standard equipment levels, such as 19 inch alloy wheels and sports suspension, lowering the car by 20 mm. Again, the Carrera S can be specified with either gearbox.
Released in November 2005 were the four-wheel drive Carrera models, available in both standard and S trim - named, surprise surprise, Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S. Power outputs remain constant, but the hardware required to drive the front pair of wheels adds weight (65kg to be precise) - hence both cars record a 0-62 mph dash 0.1 seconds slower than their two-wheel drive brethren. To enable drive to all four wheels, the Carrera 4 models employ a viscous-coupled centre differential, which can automatically alternate torque values applied across each axle, depending upon grip levels experienced. The system supplies a minimum of 5% of all drive to the front axle in all conditions - this can rise to 40% in extreme situations. Porsche Stability Management (PSM), which is essentially Porsche's traction control system, is allied to the four-wheel drive - and has been completely revamped from the two-wheel drive 997.
The all-wheel drive 997s run 10mm closer to the road, and 4S are supplied standard with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), using which the driver can control suspension stiffness. Added to this, the rear wings are 44 mm wider than the two-wheel drive models.
