The 993 Carrera 4 came fitted with Porsches ABD (Automatic Brake Differential) braking system (as used on the RS models) which improves the cars handling in corners whilst the viscous coupling based 4 wheel drive system automatically varies the amount of power going to the front wheels between 5 and 50% as required for the conditions.

This particular example is in outstanding condition throughout. Externally, the Arena Red paintwork is stunning and virtually blemish free. The electrically operated cabriolet hood is also in near perfect condition and benefits from a recently replaced rear screen with none of the often found hazing or scratching.
