2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 (996)
A lovely low-mileage 6-speed manual example with just 53,704 miles showing; well optioned example including sports exhaust with a fresh clean MOT until October 2022
Supplied new by Porsche Centre Exeter in May 2003 this smart face-lift 996 generation of 911 comes to us in desirable Carrera 4 guise, which of course means it has the added advantage of all-wheel drive.
Under the engine cover, at the back, we find the water-cooled 3.6 litre flat six engine developing 315Bhp driving all-four wheels via the more desirable 6-speed manual transmission.
Finished in the lovely hue of Lapis Blue Metallic (LM5W) the car rides on its original 18inch 5-spoke Carrera alloy wheels (411) finished in silver. The option code for this example reveals it to be a well specified car and includes the following factory options – graphite grey (CZ) full leather interior, sports exhaust (XLF), headlamp washers (288), seat heating (342), rear window wiper (425), wheel caps with coloured Porsche crest (446), Harmon analogue sound system (490), top tinted windscreen (567), Litronic (Xenon) headlights (601), park assist (635), 6-disc Becker CD changer (692), leather rear seats (936) and leather dashboard and door panels (981).
This example also carries the option code ‘09991’ which means it was treated to a bespoke Porsche option, where the car is taken off the production line for fitment of bespoke options which are often tricky to establish without the original bill of sale although undoubtedly a desirable asset.
Looking very well, the car has covered only 53,704 miles and comes with a good history file including the V5C showing just 4-former keepers to our present lady of 3.5 years, the owner’s pack & service book revealing 8 service stamps, the last by Porsche specialist Braunton Engineering in August 2018 at 52,229 miles (which is only c.1,500 miles ago) along with a further 2 stamps for brake fluid changes and 1 for 4 year condition report.
In addition, the history file includes a selection of invoices for parts and maintenance including a replacement AC control panel in January 2021 costing £371, a £312 spend in June 2019 on a leaking coolant pipe union, a repair to the steering angle sensor and replacement engine oil pressure switch in July 2019 at a cost of £1,285, replacement brake pipes in April 2017 costing £1,185 and new AC condensers and drier in October 2011 costing £1,159.
In addition to the 5 old MOTs on file, the current test is valid to October 2022 with no advisories recorded. Ready to be enjoyed, this later model 996 C4 offers all weather performance with a nice spec, low mileage and low owners and we think, good investment appeal.
