This 2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 4 Cabriolet comes finished in Seal Grey Metallic over a black leather interior and features the Comfort Package, Advanced Technic Package, Design Package, and Heated Front Seats Package. This Carrera was initially delivered to Jaguar of Huntington in New York where it remained until arriving in California in 2004. This 2002 example is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California while showing approximately 98k miles on the odometer and just over 17k miles on its rebuilt engine.
This example comes finished in Seal Grey Metallic and had reportedly been repainted in its factory-specified color under previous ownership. Equipment includes a black convertible soft top and optional 18” light-alloy Carrera wheels which have been finished in black and paired with aftermarket center caps. It rides on Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires from 2012. Several imperfections are noted throughout the exterior, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report showing cosmetic damage in 2003 and 2008.
The Black partial leather interior is said to have been reupholstered and features the optional Design Package (P71) which adds aluminum-look instrument dials, aluminum inlays for the gear selector and brake handle, and stainless-steel door entry guards with Carrera designations. Additional options include the Front Heated Seats Package, the Comfort Package (P01) which adds power-adjustable seats with memory functions and adjustable lumber support, and the Advanced Technic Package which adds headlight washers, the HiFi Sound System, and Litronic headlights. The seller adds the stereo is currently inoperable and the steering wheel clock spring was replaced. A recent service by TRE Motorsports included repairs to the convertible to mechanism with a new hydraulic unit as well as a new right rear window regulator.
The second-generation 996 Carrera 4 equips a 3.6-liter flat-six engine delivering up to 320 HP and 273 lb.-ft of torque to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The seller states a replacement engine miles was sourced from a donor car and installed under previous ownership at 81,127 miles, and the IMS bearing, oil separator, and coolant tank have also been replaced. The CARFAX report shows a total of 19 service history records dating back to the initial delivery and the recent service at TRE Motorsports included the replacement of a secondary muffler.
This sale will include a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “I came into possession of the car 2 years ago. I love the car and have enjoyed driving along the California coast. I'm selling the car because I am building a guest house in my backyard to help me pay the mortgage and I need some mula to start the project. I'm sad to leave this car behind and hope that whoever is meant to be with her will take care of her and enjoy her as much as I have. Before I came into possession of her she had a new engine put in. The car had 81127 miles when the engine was put in. You can call Euro Spec for IMS bearing verification. Please see the paperwork in the photos to confirm this. 23k spent. The previous owner also repainted the car to make it look tip-top. The car was painted the same color. I recently replaced the coolant bottle and the oil separator. This was really expensive. I also put a new clock spring in the steering wheel. This car runs really nicely and I've put the right work into the car to ensure its longevity as I love it."
