The Porsche 911/996 Carrera 4S is fast becoming one of the most desirable 996 models, given its wide turbo body looks and still remaining very affordable in the modern classic world. It offers a thrilling driving experience and is powered by 3.6 litre flat-six engine, producing a highly respectable 316bhp. This engine was paired to either a six-speed manual transmission or an optional five-speed Tiptronic automatic. The car was also fitted with an all-wheel drive system, giving it excellent traction and handling in any conditions. The 996 Carrera 4S has a top speed of 174mph and a 0-60 time of just 4.8 seconds, making it one of the fastest cars in its class.
This very well cared for example is the right hand drive, manual derivative. Offered in good order throughout the Porsche is presented in Arctic Silver over a Metropol blue interior and looks superb! The paintwork is in very good order and the interior is in good condition commensurate of its age. Acquired by our vendor in 2020 this example has been used as intended and is showing 106,285 on the odometer. Maintained regardless of cost, the Carrera 4S was even treated to an engine rebuild by its previous vendor including a replacement IMS bearing, an issue commonly found with the 996 model. This work was undertaken in 2014 when the Porsche was showing a mileage of 69,389 and was undertaken by well-respected Porsche engine rebuild specialist, Hartech Ltd, the cost of which totalled £9,542.
The 996 comes complete with an extensive service history and is currently looked after by Porsche specialists No.5 Garage, in Chiswick. Also included are two sets of keys, many original documents, old MoT records, the current UK registration and an MoT valid until 21st October 2024. A Carrera 4S with a manual gearbox is one of the best driving Porsches of the modern era, and this example is no exception. Consignor Daniel Godin
