Porsche 911 is the best-selling sports car in the world and has an unique body style that remained unchanged for decades. The Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe featured here is an exponent of the 7-th generation of the model, with facelift. This version, presented in the fall of 2015, comes with turbocharged engines only. The smallest engine is a 3.0-litre petrol turbo, down from a 3.4-litre naturally aspirated. The 911 shown here is a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe, which means it has All-Wheel Drive (4), the second power output available for the model (S), and a Coupe body style. Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system is new for the facelift, featuring multi-touch screen and Apple CarPlay. The switch for driving modes is now steering-wheel-mounted and looks like the one that Porsche 918 Spyder has. This Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe is new, with less than 3.000 km on the clock.
