The 997 generation’s biggest updates were the interior and exterior styling, most notably the return to the “bug eye” round highlights of the 911 and 993 generations. The slightly widened body and larger 18” wheels gave the 997s a more aggressive stance, and they all benefited from slightly increased power. Inside, the design was similarly reminiscent of the pre-996 generation design. The return to traditional styling makes the 997 generation feel like an homage to the iconic and prolific original 911s, yet the futuristic and modern technology and engineering make it a car firmly rooted in the present. Second Phase (post-2009) 997’s included facelift styling changes as well as direct injection, and PDK double clutch transmission which made them faster, lighter and therefore more fuel efficient than the earlier models. The 997 is truly the best of both worlds, a modern car in a subtly classic body, an eye on the past but a nod to the future.
Midway through the model cycle Porsche introduced a mid-range 911 that filled the gap between the Carrera and the GT3. Although they went on to produce an all wheel drive version, the C2 GTS was the only rear wheel drive car fitted with what was traditionally the C4’s wider body style and track. Both the C2 and C4 featured an upgraded 3.8L engine with an output of 413 hp. Thanks to the backwards production process of the 997 generation (cabriolet before coupe), the GTS Cabriolet was one of the fastest convertibles in production when it was released, coming incredibly close to the C2 GTS Coupe’s dizzying performance statistics.
