Offered as the ultimate Carrera in Porsche’s 996 model range, the 4S sports the wide bodywork, brakes, and all-wheel-drive system of the 911 Turbo. This 2002 example comes finished in Guards Red over a Black full leather interior featuring optional seats with Porsche crested headrests, the Advanced Technic Package, Leather Package, and exclusive aluminum inlays for the shifter and brake handle. It was acquired by the current owner almost three years ago and has since received a new clutch, water pump, radiators, front brakes, an LN Engineering IMS bearing retrofit, and much more. This Carrera 4S is now being offered for auction out of Massachusetts with approximately 77k miles showing on the odometer.
This 996 comes finished in Guards Red and can be distinguished as a 4S by its Turbo-derived bodywork and model-specific reflector band between the taillights. The factory 18” Turbo-look wheels have been recently refurbished and come paired with optional colored center crests, aftermarket 15mm spacers, and Sumitomo tires which were mounted about three years ago. A new front bumper was installed following minor damage in October of 2020 along with refinishing of the hood and both front fenders to address stone chips. The exterior is described to be in good overall condition with signs of wear consistent with the car's mileage, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin is trimmed in Black full leather upholstery including heated front seats with optional lumbar support and Porsche crested headrests. Other options include the Advanced Technic Package, Leather Package (small), and aluminum inlays for the shifter and brake handle. The plastic trim pieces and leather upholstery exhibit some wear, and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional although the passenger seat forward/reverse switch only works intermittently.
All four wheels are driven through a 6-speed manual transmission paired with a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter flat-six engine producing as much as 320 HP 273 lb.-ft of torque. Routine oil changes have been carried out every 3k miles by the current owner over the past three years along with replacement of the clutch, front differential seals, oil return tube, water pump, coolant tank, radiators, condenser, front brake pads and rotors, and an LN Engineering IMS bearing retrofit.
This sale will include a clean title.
