Intro / exterior
Here we are offering for sale the nicest example of the Porsche 996 Carrera 4S that we have ever had the pleasure of selling. With its exceptional condition, ultra-low mileage and highly desirable spec, examples like this are extremely hard to come by. It is also worth noting, that this car was one of the last off of the production line, registered on 17/02/2005, post-dating the launch of the 997. The coachwork is absolutely pin straight and the paint is pristine. Our usual FGP day's worth of detailing has been carried out, protecting the lovely condition of the bodywork. Midnight Blue (colour code L39C) suits the wide body of the 4S to a tee and presents a wonderfully eloquent 911. The car is a non-sun roof model, which we, and a lot of our customers are fond of, as it offers a cleaner, less busy-looking roof line. The Porsche rests on its original wide body alloys, which are un-marked and have Michelin Pilot Sport tyres fitted with good levels of tread.
The Metropol Blue leather interior sits alongside the deep blue exterior superbly and offers a classy looking Porsche 911. The condition of the cockpit is outstanding, with the seats looking fresh, the carpets unmarked, and the dashboard, steering wheel and door cards etc all presenting very nicely indeed. Everything inside the Porsche operates as it should do, including the air conditioning system which blows ice cool. The mouth watering list of optional extras specified with the car include; alcantara suede headlining, 8 way electric seats, seat heating, Tequipment hand-brake and gear stick with aluminium embodiment, stainless steel kick plates, PCM satellite navigation, silver backed binnacle dials, Bose sound system with built in subwoofer, Litronic xenon headlights, sports switchable exhaust (PSE), Turbo style chromed twin tail pipe tips, sun roof delete. There are three keys with the Porsche; two remote fobs and one valet key. The optional extra codes read as follows: C16, XLF, X54, X70, X71, X97, X98, 265, 266, 288, 342, 425, 440, 567, 601, 09971, 09991.
This Porsche drives as you'd expect it to, having covered so few miles and being in such phenomenal condition. The flat six springs into life "on the button" idles smoothly, revs crisply, and creates a beautiful noise through its switchable exhaust (PSE). During our preparation of the vehicle, we have upgraded its IMS bearing for our favoured EPS cylindrical unit, so this cause for concern is no more with this vehicle. We also renewed the three-piece clutch kit, which gives a lovely light pedal to the left foot and renewed the rear main oil seal. The gearbox shifts through its six speeds seamlessly, the brakes are without noteworthy wear and stop the car with great force, and the suspension is tight, providing for a brilliantly handling sports car.
Service history / sales prep
With the exception of one interval at an independent specialist, the 4S has only ever been looked after by the Porsche main dealer throughout its life. The large history file includes all of the invoices for the work that's been carried out at the main dealer, as well as all of the historic MOT certificates, previous HPI reports and even the two previous sales invoices for when the car was bought by its previous owners. There is also of course the fully stamped maintenance booklet stored alongside the owners manuals in the original leather owners wallet.
The service intervals are as follows: 12/02/2007 - 10,772 miles, 17/02/2009 - 16,825 miles, 15/02/2011 - 22,381 miles, 07/02/2013 - 25,755 miles, 11/03/2015 - 28,640 miles, 19/07/2017 - 30,017 miles, 20/10/2017 - 30,221 miles, 25/10/2017 - 30,226 miles, 24/10/2019 - 31,397 miles, 09/03/2021 - 31,514 miles.
In preparation for sale we have carried out a major service, brake fluid change and an MOT, as well as upgrading the all important IMS bearing, renewing the three-piece clutch kit and renewing the rear main oil seal. The car has also very recently benefitted from the renewal of the front suspension top mounts, renewal of the front suspension top bearings, renewal of the front bump stops and a four wheel alignment.
