The Porsche 996 Carrera 4S combines naturally aspirated power with body styling, brakes, and an all-wheel-drive system from the 911 Turbo. This 2003 example boasts a 6-speed manual transmission, an Arctic Silver Metallic finish over Graphite Grey full leather upholstery, 18” Turbo Look wheels, and the BOSE High-End Sound Package. This C4S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California while showing under 63k miles on the odometer.
This Carrera 4S showcases wider fenders than a standard Carrera and features Turbo-style bumpers and a distinct reflector band that connects the taillights. Finished in Arctic Silver Metallic, this 2003 example is equipped with 18” 911 Turbo Look wheels dressed in General Tire G-Max tires dating back to 2019. The left rear wheel is reportedly unblemished, and the other three wheels exhibit slight abrasions upon close examination. The seller adds that paint protection film has been applied to the hood, front bumpers, headlight lenses, and mirrors, followed by a full ceramic coating. Additionally, the daytime running lights have been replaced and a new windshield was installed in 2023. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report noting damage in March 2017.
The cabin features Graphite Grey full leather upholstery and includes the BOSE High-End Sound Package. Other features include power windows, an electric sunroof, power-adjustable & heated mirrors, cruise control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The headlight switch has been replaced, and all gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be fully functional. The seller indicates very minimal signs of wear.
Powered by a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter flat-six engine rated at 320 HP and 273 lb.-ft of torque, the Carrera 4S channels power to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The IMS bearing and clutch underwent replacement at 50k miles in February of 2021, and the vehicle has reportedly been kept up to date on routine maintenance. The CARFAX report shows 27 service history entries, and the seller adds that the air mass meter boot and idler pulleys have been replaced under their ownership.
This sale will include the owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, an air pump, a car cover, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for visiting my auction. I hope this car will end up with someone who enjoys it as much as I have. It has the classic Carrera look with what I especially like: the wider turbo-look rear and front and the vents in the lower corner of the rear fenders that come with 996.2 4S. It looks good and is fun to drive. I would keep it for years more if I hadn't been tempted to buy a newer car and didn't have room to keep the 4S in my garage. I've owned Boxsters, a Cayman, and an air-cooled 911 SC. I can say that the 4S is a favorite.”
