The 911 Carrera S has left our garage and no longer available to drive.
In the evolution of the 911, the 997 sits at the intersection of classic 911 feel and modern driving dynamics. The smaller size and hydraulically assisted rack and pinion steering give the 997 a more engaging sports car feel over the newer 991, while the extra suspension grip and water cooled power give it more modern performance over its air cooled ancestors.
