+- INTRO / EXTERIOR

Here lays the opportunity to acquire a superb example of the ever increasingly sought after 996 Carrera 4S, which has recently benefitted from an extraordinary amount of new parts (detailed below), including an IMS bearing upgrade carried out with us when we first sold this example 18 months ago. The coachwork of the car is in brilliant condition, with pin-straight body panels throughout. The Arctic Silver (colour code L92U) is in equally nice order with a deep metallic glisten, enhanced and protected by the FGP day’s worth of detailing that been carried out in preparation for sale. The 911 is a non-sun roof model, offering a clean, sleek looking roof-line. Beneath the Porsche lay it’s original Turbo alloy wheels, which are in good condition with some minor curb marks.

+- INTERIOR / SPEC

Inside lays a beautiful black leather interior, that has the desirable optional sports hard-back seats, which are in wonderful condition and have heating function. When we sold the car 18 months ago, the buyer opted for our FGP Interior Package to be installed, with the steering wheel, gear gaiter and hand brake reupholstered in suede alcantara and red stitching, and the seat belts re-webbed in red (advertisement photos prior to installation). This package really improves the appearance of the interior, and gives nicer-feeling contact points to the driver, comparable to the GT cars within Porsche’s model line up. The carbon fibre “package” specified with this example from new further enhances the interior, making for a very special place to be. There are other nice options specced with the car, such as sound package, cruise control, Litronic xenon headlights, auto dimming rear view mirror and auto dimming driver’s wing mirror. Every electrical function in the cockpit works as it should, including the air conditioning, which blows ice cool, thanks to two new condensers being fitted during our sales preparation process, and the front to rear low pressure pipe being renewed as part of our sales preparation when we sold the car 18 months ago. There are two remote key fobs with the Porsche. The optional extra codes for the 911 read as follows: C16, XNR, XNX, XPY, XJ4, XX1, X99, 139, 265, 266, 288, 340, 375, 376, 425, 09991.

+- MECHANICS / DRIVE

As noted earlier, when preparing the car for sale 18 months ago, the 3.6 litre flat six had its IMS bearing upgraded to our favoured “EPS” cylindrical unit. The engine performs just as Porsche intended, idling smoothly, revving freely and producing an addictive sound through its stainless steel sports back boxes. The rear main oil seal was also renewed during the IMS works, so there are no leaks underneath. The manual gearbox changes through its six speeds smoothly and the clutch is lovely and light, having also been renewed by us. In the corners, the 911 has huge amounts of traction and grip, with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres with at least 5mm of tread fitted to all four corners, and suspension that feels as tight as a drum, having had a significant amount of components recently renewed (detailed in the below section). The large, turbo brakes that come with the 4S variant stop the car with force, having had new rear discs, pads, backing plates and wear sensor recently fitted with us.
