Intro / Exterior

Presented here is the opportunity to acquire a Porsche 996 Carrera 4S in a sought after specification; manual, coupe, non-sun roof and black-on-black colour combination. Importantly, during our preparation process, we have carried out our customary IMS bearing upgrade, so this area for concern is not an issue with this example. The Porsche's coachwork is in fabulous condition, straight along every panel and free from any body repairs. The Basalt Black (colour code LC9Z) paintwork is equally fabulous with no blemishes and a beautiful glossy finish throughout. The car has been given a full body soft head machine polish and hand wax while in with us to emphasise and protect the gorgeous paintwork. We have removed the front bumper and had it resprayed, meaning that there are no stone chips present. The non-sun roof spec is a feature we like on these cars as it presents a sleek and clean looking roof-line. Underneath the car lay its original and genuine Porsche C4S wide body alloy wheels, which are found in fine condition, with no curb marks of grazing. Nearly-new Bridgestone Potenza tyres are fitted to all four corners. 

Interior / Spec
The black leather interior is in exceptional condition; accurately representing the low mileage that the Porsche has traveled. The sought after, optional, sports hard-back seats have worn very well, with very little wear, even to the driver's side bolstering. Other heavily used areas, such as the steering wheel, gear stick and hand brake are also in lovely condition. All of the functions inside the car work as they should, including the air conditioning, which we have just fitted a new front to rear low pressure pipe to and re-gassed the system. Noteworthy optional extras that the C4S possesses include the sports hard-back seats with shoulder supports, front seat heating, and Bose sound system with built in subwoofer. There are two key fobs and the original valet key present. 

Mechanics / Spec
The 911 is in fantastic mechanical condition and is thoroughly enjoyable to drive. As is stated earlier, in preparation for sale, we have upgraded the IMS bearing to our favoured EPS cylindrical bearing, so there are no concerns in the IMS bearing department. The 3.6 litre flat six engine mounted to the rear operates perfectly, starting as it should, idling smoothly and revving up crisply. The six speed manual gearbox changes through its speeds effortlessly and the clutch is light with a positive engagement having been renewed, along with the rear main oil seal, during the IMS works. The suspension and steering feels utterly tight, with the top mounts, top bearings and bump stops all being renewed during our preparation process. The large brakes found on the 4S stop the car confidently, with the front discs and pads also being renewed with us in preparation for sale. 

Service History / Sales Prep
A full service history is with the Porsche, including a folder filled with paperwork such as invoices for previous works completed and historic MOT certificates. There is also of course the servicing booklet and the original owners manuals, all contained within the Porsche leather owners wallet.

The service intervals are as follows: 02/04/2003 - 6,776 miles, 01/04/2005 - 12,091 miles, 17/05/2006 - 17,536 miles, 13/04/2007 - 20,745 miles, 10/04/2008 - 23,717 miles, 08/04/2009 - 29,246 miles, 31/03/2010 - 32,970 miles, 04/08/2011 - 39,059 miles, 03/07/2014 - 57,000, 02/08/2018 - 63,300, 10/11/2021 - 67,972 miles.

As is noted above, we have just carried out a fresh service on the car, which was a "major" interval, including spark plugs. We have also carried out a brake fluid change, as well as the following prep work: IMS bearing upgraded for EPS cylindrical bearing, renewal of three-piece clutch kit, renewal of rear main oil seal, renewal of O/S/F side light bulb, adjustment of driver's window glass drop position, renewal of driver's vanity mirror unit, renewal of fuel cap, renewal of fuel cap locking rod guide, removal and respray of front bumper, renewal of 2x bonnet damping struts, renewal of engine bay light bulb, renewal of front brake discs, pads, wear sensors and backing shims, cleaning of 2x front air ducts, renewal of 2x front suspension top mounts, renewal of 2x front suspension top bearings, renewal of 2x front bump stops, clean and protection of steering rack PAS pipes, renewal of front to rear low pressure air conditioning pipe, re-gas of air conditioning system, renewal of 2x coil pack heat shields.

In the last few years, the 911 has also benefitted from works such as: Renewal of 2x engine mounts, renewal of auxiliary drive belt, renewal of driver's window regulator, renewal of numerous brake pipes, renewal of oil cooler.
