Now up for auction is this 2004 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S Coupe finished in Speed Yellow. Commanding an original sticker price of over $111k, this 6-speed Carrera 4S came with rare options including a sunroof delete, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), painted air intakes, and the X51 Carrera Power Kit as well as a black full leather interior with Sport Seats, deviated stitching, and Custom Tailoring. Having spent much of its life in a large private collection, this 996 shows just over 24k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Alabama.
This 996 was ordered in the eye-catching shade of Speed Yellow with optional painted middle and side air intakes on the front bumper as well as a rear model designation delete. The electric sunroof was also deleted from the factory, a rare option that saves weight from the highest point in the car while providing a stiffer bodyshell. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a CARFAX report which shows rear-end damage to have ocurred in 2006. This C4S rides on factory 18” Turbo Look II wheels currently dressed in Sumitomo tires.
Inside, the driver is greeted by a premium black full leather interior with extensive deviated stitching in yellow and Sports Seats with Porsche crested headrests. Other optional features include a thicker steering wheel and a shifter and brake handle trimmed in carbon fiber and aluminum, and insturment dials in Speed Yellow. The cabin is described to be in excellent condition with all gauges and accessories working properly including the original Porsche CDR-23 radio.
This 3.6L flat-six engine was factory equipped with the X51 Carrera Power Kit option, which includes an upgraded intake manifold, larger headers, more aggressive cams, modified cylinder heads, revised programming, and a third radiator for an output of up to 345 HP. Power is distributed to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission with a factory-optioned short-throw Sport Shifter. Porsche Stability Management (PSM) with ABS 5.7, ASR, and ABD comes standard on the Carrera 4S and this example was equipped with optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) which provide superior stopping power using 350mm cross-drilled ceramic composite rotors paired with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers. An upgraded K&N air intake has been installed and the orignal airbox will accompany the sale. Limited-service information is available and there is no record of an IMS bearing replacement. A standard full service has been recently carried out and the seller has offered to accommodate a pre-purchase inspection for any potential buyer.
This sale will include the orignal window sticker, owner's manuals, aribox, and a clean title. A true one-off configuration, this 2004 example is easily among the most generously optioned Carrera 4S models available. Do not miss your chance to add this low-mileage 996 to your collection.
