So not exactly the least expensive C4S we have ever posted, but given the combination color, mileage, originality and price we think its in the “solid value” category.
The Carrera 4S or C4S for short, was first introduced in 1994 in the US market. Porsche took a bunch of unsold 964 3.6L Turbo chassis assemblies and created the 964 Carrera Turbo-look. They then did the same thing with the 993 to create the Carrera 4S Coupe. Rinse and repeat, and here we are with the 996 version.
For the 996 version, Porsche added a full width rear reflector and removed the side air intakes. Essentially, the C4S is a Turbo without the turbocharged “Mezger” engine and side air intakes. The C4S’s came with the same naturally aspirated 3.6L flat-six that was good for 320HP that was found in every other base (996.2) Carrera. Not much info from the seller regarding maintenance, but check the Carfax, it may have some entries. No word on any IMS/RMS work, but this is still presenting a good value, so budget accordingly as it shouldn’t deter you from buying.
Factory build sheet is showing a lightly optioned car. No surprise, color is going to sell this car.
The interior is finished in Black Full Leather (dash and door cards) and only showing the Advanced Technic Package as optional
A lot of folks prefer the widebody Turbo looks as compared to the base narrow-body Carrera. Others prefer the AWD for all year driving in colder areas. Whatever the reason, this is priced competitively. It’s not super cheap, but it’s also not Arctic Silver/Black. The IMS/RMS/Clutch work is about $2500-$3500 so budget accordingly. Don’t forget that PPI! Make this red 4S, your firstflatsix.
