Porsche 911 Carrera S vs C4S track video

Choosing which Porsche 911 to buy and which options boxes to tick can be hard. We help you pick...

The Porsche 911 is almost a default choice for many sports car buyers. But choosing which 911 isn’t an easy task. There are currently 16 different 911 variants – and that’s before you’ve start perusing the vast options list.

Perhaps the biggest quandary facing Carrera and Carrera S buyers is whether to go rear- or four-wheel-drive. Enter our latest track battle. We’ve pulled together both transmission variants in higher-powered S form, with the cars exhibiting both manual and PDK gearbox options, too.

Richard Meaden puts both against the stopwatch on a wet Bedford Autodrome. Which is faster, and perhaps more pertinently, which is more fun? Watch below to find out. And don’t forget to tell us your track battle ideas – email them to eds@evo.co.uk or tweet us via @evomagazine.
