Now available for auction is this nicely presented 2003 Porsche 996 Carrera 4 Cabriolet finished in Black over a black standard leather interior. Having spent its entire life in Texas, this 2003 example was purchased by its current owner in 2019 with approximately 5k miles driven since. Factory equipped with a desirable 6-speed manual transmission, 18” light alloy Carrera wheels, the Bose High-End Sound Package, Porsche Crested headrests, and other premium features, this 996 commanded an original sticker price of over $89k and is now being offered for auction by its seller in Texas with just over 42k miles showing on the odometer.
This Carrera 4 is finished in Black and the paint is said to be in very good condition overall aside from a few minor chips. The cabriolet top is reported to be working properly and with only slight signs of wear present, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX. Factory options on this example include Xenon headlamps and 18” light alloy Carrera wheels that are currently dressed Continental tires.
Inside, this Cabriolet sports a black standard leather interior that is described to be in great shape with all gauges and accessories working properly. Premium factory features include heated front seats, Porsche crested headrests, and the Bose High-End Sound Package. An aftermarket radio has been added along with a genuine Porsche wind stop, and the original Porsche stereo will also be included in the sale.
This second-generation 996 is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.6 L flat-six engine that sends as much as 315 HP and 273 lb.-ft of torque to all four wheels by way of a smooth 6-speed manual gearbox. 0-60 MPH is achieved in approximately 5 seconds while reaching a top speed of over 175 MPH. Routine service is said to have been addressed by the current owner including a recent oil change and inspection at a Porsche dealer. There is no record of an IMS bearing upgrade and some additional maintenance history is provided on CARFAX. The only noted modification is a K&N air intake and this 996 is said to run and drive beautifully.
This sale will include a set of 2 keys, owner’s manuals, some service records from the current owner, a Porsche wind stop, the original radio, and a clean title. With just over 42k miles showing on the odometer, this 6-speed Carrera 4 just might be the 996 you have been waiting for.
