Porsche 911-Carrera Model History
All New and Used 911-Carrera Model Years and History
In 1998, the popular Carrera coupe got a new locking rear differential, and the 4S got a new Aerokit with two new 18 wheels to choose from and the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake system (PCCB). Punchier engines, rack-and-pinion steering and adjustable suspension were keynotes for the 1999 model year. All Carrera trim levels got the all-wheel-drive option for 2000, in addition to the long-awaited Carrera power kit, which increased horsepower to 381. Improved GPS, updated 19 wheels, a new tire-pressure monitoring system and a cut-off switch for passenger airbags rounded out the updates. No changes were in store for 2001, with carbon fiber racing seats being added in 2002. The Carrera boasted a new front fascia, a new direct-injection engine, larger brakes, and a new touchscreen and center stack when it arrived on showroom floors in 2003.
