2012 PORSCHE 911 (997) CARRERA 4 GTS CABRIOLET

This tastefully appointed 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet must be among the most desirable modern 911s, coming with the security of four-wheel drive and the GTS trim, which has long been regarded as a sweet spot in the 911 range. Power – all 443bhp of it – comes from a 3.8-litre flat-six engine. The odometer shows 28,620 miles.

This 911 was first registered on April 27, 2012 and has since passed through the hands of several owners. The car is being offered for auction by a dealer, but the previous owner kept the car for around 18 months.

Details

The car presents very well, with no obvious blemishes on the silver paintwork. Look closely, though, and you’ll find some minor stone chips on the front bumper and two very small dents below the off-side wing mirror. The black hood appears to be in good condition, too, and the silver paintwork and black alloy wheels are thought to be original. The wheels themselves are the race-inspired centre-locking type, and appear to be in good condition.

The black interior is in excellent condition, with the only signs of wear being the creases in the leather on the front seat bolsters. Normally, GTS cars would have part-leather, part-suedecloth trim, but the full leather upholstery was an option specified when the car was purchased. That came alongside several other optional extras, including the Sport Chrono Package Plus, heated seats and rear park assist, as well as a telephone module, extended navigation module and the Bose sound system. The whole cabin is entirely original, and everything works as it should.

Porsche Brooklands carried out the car’s most recent service on September 3, 2020, at which point the car had covered 28,242 miles. The service included engine oil and oil filter changes, along with a brake fluid change, fresh spark plugs and a new particle filter. This followed services at Porsche Portsmouth in February 2018 and at Porsche Swindon in 2016. Both were routine services at 20,188 and 18,007 miles respectively, with each involving oil and filter changes. The 2016 service also included new spark plugs, and the 2018 service included a drive belt replacement. Throughout the car’s life, services have been carried out every two years at Porsche dealers across southern England.

The most recent MOT test was on September 15, 2020 at 28,254 miles, which resulted in a pass. The only advisory was for wear on the edges of the near-side front tyre. At present, the tyres all have 3-6mm of tread remaining, with the two rear tyres boasting slightly 5-6mm of tread across the centre.

All the owners’ manuals are included with the car, along with a service book with stamps. A full tool kit is also provided, along with a pump and tyre repair gel. A centre-lock wheel tool is supplied, although it is a new item as the original went missing.

The 2012 911 Carrera 4 GTS was a great car when it was launched, and it remains a great car today. This one has been meticulously maintained, and it looks almost as good as when it came out of the factory. It also has several desirable options, making it a really attractive 911 that’s ready to excite its next custodian.
