Performance upgrades are also pricey. We added Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control for $3170, which also forces you to purchase rear axle steering for $2090. Porsche Active Suspension Management tacks on $1020 and the Sport Chrono package, which brings launch control, is $2720. The most expensive addition, however, are the ceramic composite brakes for a grand total of $8,970. The sharp LED-Matrix Design headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus is an extra $3,270, and safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control and Night Vision Assist go for $2,000 and $2,540, respectively. We also threw in a Burmester surround sound stereo for $5,560.
We went for a slightly sportier vibe on the Lava Red example, a paint option that also costs $3270. We opted for the RS Spyder Design wheels, which go for $2,540, and the Sport Package, which includes the Sport Chrono package and Porsche Active Suspension Management, for $5,460. Other differences with the Carmine Red spec include a fire extinguisher at $180 for emergencies on a track day, and seat belts in Racing Yellow ($540) for a bit of extra flair. Instead of the wood interior trim, we went for the carbon fiber option, which totals $2100. In all, this sportier Carrera 4S topped out at $160,770.
