The 997 is dripping with technology. The Carrera S had the new Porsche Active Suspension Management as standard with both Carrera and non-Carrera benefitting from variable-ratio steering and Porsche stability management. Safety was further enhanced by the addition of four-wheel drive, a useful addition when you are channelling that much power through to the tarmac from the larger S-spec engine. Additionally, there was also the Sport Chrono Package offering a dash-mounted stopwatch which, as Octane put it, “tautened the throttle and suspension damping while loosening the PSM’s rein.”
First registered on 26th April 2006, this wonderful Carrera 4S offers the perfect blend of sports car excitement with everyday practicality. Whether the top is up or down, flying down country lanes or visiting the local supermarket, the 4S does it all effortlessly and commands the respect of car lovers everywhere who recognise the Porsche ‘S’ models as the connoisseur’s choice. Looking fabulous in their wide body format and sporting 19” Carrera Sport wheels, these cars really hit the sweet spot of the 911 range. Desirable options on this particular car include 2-way electric leather seats in the front as well as leather rear seats, dashboard and door panels. Other benefits include steering wheel mounted Tiptronic gear change buttons and a full European satellite navigation system. The car boasts a full service history with most of the work carried out either by Porsche main agents or specialist garages including respected Porsche specialist JZM in Hertfordshire since 2014, with Langley Autocraft replacing a rear tyre and cleaning and wax oiling the bottom of the car more recently in January, demonstrating the level of care given to the car. The vendor reports that this Porsche drives faultlessly and he will be sorry to see it go, but no longer uses it enough.
Supplied with a stamped service history, original book pack, a V5C registration document, previous MoT test certificates, many receipts, two keys and a Tracker. With 355 HP to play with and Porsche build quality, you can have the best of all worlds in this iconic future classic.
