We are proudly presenting for sale this exceptionally clean example of the beautiful Porsche 996 Carrera 4S. The car is presented in Arctic Silver (colour code L92U) with a black leather interior, which is fast becoming the classic combination on the 996 generation 911 and suits the wide-bodied 4S wonderfully. The coachwork of this Porsche is in superb order with no dings, dents or notable marks. The panels all align immaculately and the sides of the car are pin-straight. The paintwork is equally nice with a deep glossy shine, minimal marks or stone chips and protection provided by the full body soft head machine polish and hand wax that has been carried out while with us. Beneath the Porsche lay it's original Turbo alloy wheels, which are in pristine condition and have Pirelli P Zero tyres fitted with around 6-7mm of tread.
As mentioned above, the colour combination on this car is timeless, with the black leather interior sitting beautifully alongside the silver exterior. The condition of the leather inside makes it hard to believe the car is approaching 18 years old; the unmistakable smell of fresh leather is still present and there is no notable wear, even to usual wear-points such as the seat side bolstering and the steering wheel. The air conditioning in the car blows ice cool, the sunroof retracts back and forth exactly as it should and there are three keys with the car, including a remote key fob. The 4S boasts an extensive spec sheet, including sports hard back seats with shoulder supports, Bose sound package with built in sub-woofer, cruise control, Tequipment aluminium embodied hand brake and gear stick, cruise control, Litronic xenon headlights, and suede alcantara headlining. The optional extra codes read as follows: X70, X71, X97, X98, 288, 375, 376, 424, 425, 539, 540, 567, 601, 650, 09991.
Mechanically speaking the Carrera 4S is on a par with its appearance; it feels and performs like a car far younger than it's age. While in with us we have treated the 3.6 litre flat six to an IMS bearing upgrade, using our favoured "EPS" cylindrical unit. The engine performs perfectly with a beautifully smooth idle, blinding performance and a wonderful exhaust note. There are no oil leaks, no smoke and no untoward internal noises. The manual gearbox changes through it's six speeds like a Winchester rifle and the clutch is light with a positive engagement having been renewed by us while attending to the IMS upgrade. The Porsche handles through corners as well as it did when it rolled off of the production line in 2002, with utterly tight steering and suspension that is silent over any bump in the road. The large brakes found on the C4S model provide fantastic stopping power and we have provided the car with new discs and pads to the rear while in with us.
With this Porsche is a full servicing record, which includes a hard-backed, laminated folder filled with paperwork for works invoices, MOTs, HPI certificates etc, the maintenance booklet that has 11 intervals completed.
