    @Regan911 definitely a better buy when the last owner was selling it for $37.5

  • Regan911 1 monthago

    Genuinely a beautiful car, and yes a rare color. But at $47k, you're now in Turbo territory. It will take a special buyer to pass up the extra 100 HP and buy this one instead.

  • RareCarCollector (seller) 1 monthago

    My mistake yes stainless exhaust tips

  • nafs 1 monthago

    @RareCarCollector this doesn't have the sport exhaust, just the stainless exhaust tips. If it did it would have a switch for it.

    @Skindoc maybe for a run of the mill yes but if you had a 997 4S in a rare and desirable color like this it would probably be $10-$15k more

    Bid in the amount of $31,500

  • wadds1971 (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Beautiful 996 C4S! Nice service updates just completed, too. Any evidence of bore-scoring at all, e.g. smoking from tailpipe(s) on start-up, or extra rattling sounds from the engine? And yes, it would be nice to know which IMS bearing was used for the update, and whether or not it comes with a transferrable warranty.

    As a dealer, do you have connections with any reputable shippers who could send this to the Seattle area via enclosed transport? Any idea what this might cost? Thanks!

    Wow—a VERY rare color! These 996 4S’s are AMAZING cars—a perfect blend of analog and digital.
    If this car is in excellent condition, it will make someone an extremely happy owner with limitless smiles on the road (and untapped upside potential as they’re still overlooked).
    Good Luck!
