With the fifth generation of the 911, the 996, Porsche dared to break with air cooling in 1997. The 996 was the first model of the 911 series with a water-cooled engine, which was a big step towards the future.
This step can also be seen in the design: the dimensions of the completely redeveloped body have grown all round. The interior also benefits from this: the 996 offers more elbow room and a more generous feeling of space. The dashboard is also new: the shapes of the five round instruments merge for the first time.
As the most powerful Carrera model, the Carrera 4S accelerates from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 5.1 seconds with the 235 kW (320 PS) 3.6 liter boxer engine. The maximum speed is 280 kilometers per hour. Extreme braking performance is achieved by the powerfully dimensioned and red painted turbo brake system built into the Carrera 4S.
In the Carrera 4S, the drive power is passed on to all four wheels. The standard equipment also includes the electronic driving dynamics control "Porsche Stability Management" (PSM), which in combination with the all-wheel drive ensures a particularly high level of driving safety and the very special Porsche driving pleasure.
Visually, the Carrera 4S leaves no room for doubt as to who was the inspiration for it: the 911 Turbo. The rear fenders of the Carrera 4S widen the rear by 60 millimeters compared to the 911 Carrera of the 996 series. This creates space for the standard 18-inch turbo-look light alloy wheels. In my opinion, these visual changes make the Carrera 4S Coupé the most beautiful model in this series. The trunk lid is made of glass fiber reinforced plastic, which is often used in motorsport. Another distinguishing feature of the Carrera 4S is the rear spoiler, which extends automatically at 120 km / h and ensures safe driving behavior in the upper speed range.
With this vehicle I can offer you a well-maintained and very elegant Porsche 996 Carrera 4S Coupé, which was delivered as a new car in Italy in November 2002. It is the much more popular variant with a 6-speed manual transmission and also scores points visually with a simple and elegant combination of seal gray metallic (Y1Y1) and black ruffled leather.
Among other things, with automatic air conditioning, heat protection glazing, electric windows, electrically adjustable and heated exterior mirrors, central locking, immobilizer, alarm system with interior monitoring, electrically adjustable seats with memory function, full leather equipment and an on-board computer, the 4S is from the Equipment already placed very close to the 911 Turbo as standard.
In addition, the vehicle offered here received the following extras ex works:
This 996 Carrera 4S has a mileage of 89,950 km. It is offered with a complete second Carrera 4S wheel set with good summer tires.
The vehicle, which has been registered for the last owner in Germany since 2016, has a neat service book.
Here you will find an overview of all maintenance work carried out:
