Up for auction is this 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S with a 6-speed manual transmission. The Carrera 4S is coveted for its perfect blend of a normally aspirated Carrera power plant and Turbo model shell, adding the functional wider body and larger brakes to its platform. The seller acquired this example in 2014 only adding approximately 1k miles on the odometer in his five years of ownership. This 993 currently reads 72k miles and is being offered with a clean bill of health out of Dallas, Texas.
This example is said to have had a high-quality repaint in its factory color of Polar Silver Metallic, which is nicely complimented by the Marble Grey interior. The Carfax report does indicate an accident under the first owner’s possession in 2002; however, seller advises that the overall cosmetic and structural condition is described as excellent with only minor rock chips adorning the front end. The seller orchestrated a 3rd party inspection to take place in which the results are currently posted in the photo gallery.
Inside, the original Marble Grey leather interior appears in excellent condition, exhibiting only marginal wear for the 72k miles traversed. The leather stitched shift knob and boot also show very limited signs of wear indicative of the care this 911 has received over the past 23 years. The factory optioned comfort seats show to be in excellent condition with only minimal creasing present. Additional options include Hi-Fi sound system, electronic rear spoiler, power sunroof, headlight washers, and 18” factory turbo twist wheels with Porsche crests. The seller indicates that the vehicles tires retain 75% tread life.
Power is delivered by way of a 3.6L aluminum horizontally opposed engine delivering 282HP and 250 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. A lightweight clutch, lightweight flywheel, and large red Turbo four piston brakes will provide a boost in performance during spirited driving. The seller confirms that this 4S is currently in great mechanical condition with a recent "look over" from both Park Place Porsche and RAC Performance in which everything checked out excellent. A recent oil and filter change just this month has been performed to give the next owner peace of mind.
A fine example of a very well cared for 993, this sale will include two keys, all books, factory tool kit, spare tire, car cover and extensive service records to back up the sellers description.
