2004 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

9,000 miles from new

Description

When Porsche introduced the 996 in 1998, it heralded a big departure from the timeless 911 concept, for not only was it radically different to its predecessor, but for the first time a Porsche 911 was water cooled. Stringent emissions/noise regulations, a higher expectation for refinement and a high-performance, 4-valves per cylinder engine made the switch necessary. Other major changes include a completely new platform topped with a sleeker body, a more raked windscreen, and a redesigned interior. The new car was far more practical too, with more space for touring, a roomier cabin and a structure that was 45% stiffer, yet despite all of this, the 996 was 50kg lighter than the outgoing model.

 

In response to customer demand, the four-wheel drive Carrera 4S was introduced in 2003 fitted as standard with many options including a wider body with turbo-style wheels, lowered suspension, and a sports exhaust coupled to the 3.6ltr engine which developed 320bhp @6800rpm and 273lb/ft torque. Aided by the inclusion of ‘Variocam plus’ which improved power delivery through the range, the car was capable of 0-60 in 5 seconds and a top speed of 174mph.

 

This stunning example, fitted from new with the factory Aero Kit, is offered with full history containing 6 stamped services to support its very low mileage, and comes with all books, tools and keys. With the 996 model now finally being recognised as a landmark in the continuing development of the legendary 911 theme, the C4S is rapidly becoming a very collectible variant, and none more so than this investment grade example.
