Porsche 964 Carrera 4
In 1989, the Porsche 911 received the first major revision since the early ‘60s and a new chassis code: 964. The Turbo and convertible models continued, but there was an interesting addition to the mainline offer in the form of the Carrera 4. The Carrera 4 was the first 911 they equipped with all-wheel drive as standard.
The AWD system cured some of the handling problems all 911 experienced, but it added weight and affected the performance. Anyway, this was a big step forward and a big achievement of Porsche’s engineers, because the Carrera 4 turned out to be an influential, important model in 911 history.
In fact, the Carrera 4 was the first mass-produced sports car with four-wheel drive that opened doors to modern models and introduced customers to next level driving dynamics.
