September 13, 2012 lacarguy Porsche Tags: , , , 0 Comments

This week we bring you a series of videos as Porsche factory driver, Patrick Long puts the new 911 Carrera 4S through the paces. We are introduced to the car’s bold new design as the journey begins in sun and serenity at the base of the mountain. As the series progresses, we travel through different terrain as the weather progressively turns colder and slicker. The power, agility and strengths in traction, safety and dynamic performance of the 911 Carrera 4S become obvious as the vehicle is put to the test.

The first video is merely a teaser to whet your palate. In the second video, Patrick highlights various design features of the vehicle and describes what it feels like to be behind the wheel.
