Mod­i­fied 996 C4S

Total 911 - - Views -

dear Sir, I en­joyed your re­cent Liv­ing the Leg­end ar­ti­cle about your C4S. It’s about time the 996 is get­ting the recog­ni­tion it de­serves. I own a 2005 996 C4S Cabri­o­let that I pur­chased in 2007. It has been a work in progress. I thought you might be in­ter­ested in the mod­i­fi­ca­tions I have done over the last ten years. Aero­dy­nam­ics in­clude a Porsche Te­quip­ment front split­ter, GT3 front bumper grill and an RS rear spoiler. It sits on H&R springs and sway bars with Bil­stein sport shocks, a Rennline bump steer kit and Agency Power ad­justable front sway bar links, plus Rennline monoball bush­ings, Rennline ad­justable rear con­trol arms, Agency Power ad­justable toe links, Agency Power rear sway bar links, and lower A-arm solid-thrust bush­ings. I’ve also fit­ted a Max Speed mo­tor­sport car­bon-fi­bre front strut brace. As for brakes, it has front and rear brake cool­ing ducts from the GT depart­ment, stain­less steel brake lines, plus high-per­for­mance brake fluid. There are lots of mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the en­gine and sus­pen­sion, and if you be­lieve the claimed horse­power gains for the var­i­ous mod­i­fi­ca­tions it should have ap­prox­i­mately 400hp (I live in a small town in Ore­gon so I don’t have ac­cess to a dyno). The only thing I want to add is a big brake system. The C4S is sim­ply a tremen­dous car. It puts a smile on my face ev­ery time I get be­hind the wheel! Steve rogers

Great to see you’ve en­joyed your car­rera 4S for many years now, Steve. the say­ing is true, there’s a 911 out there for ev­ery­body, such is the unique na­ture of the car and the many it­er­a­tions of it. that you’ve built a car that ap­peals to you is a credit to your­self – great to note, in­ci­den­tally, you’ve man­aged to ex­tract 400hp from that flat six with no prob­lems. other peo­ple aren’t so brave with the M96 en­gine.
