Porsche 911 Carrera 4S: 5 things you need to know

Porsche create some true masterpieces and they have not let themselves down with this new Porsche 911 Carrera 4S. There is something about the way Porsche design their cars but they have a unique look that attracts you in some odd way. The 4S is designed well with a wide but low standing base that complements the rising design, the bulging headlights either side of the front sloping bonnet is unequivocally Porsche. The grille of the 4S is minimal, looks good and contain active air intake flaps. The roof of the car slopes towards the rear and that is another Porsche design standard.

The side of the car is kept clean with distinctive wheel arches and minimal design on the doors. The look of this car is on the front and rear.

The rear is beautiful and distinctive. The 3D thin rear lights are connected with the moniker sitting just below. The twin exhausts really make this car stand out at the rear and are a nice touch for the rear-axle capable steering car. The rear grille that sits below the rear window give it a real sporty look. You can get a huge range of colours for the car.
