A true icon from Germany, the Porsche 911 is one of the most recognized sports cars on sale worldwide. Stuttgart’s commitment to the rear-engined chassis has resulted in an instantly recognizable car, no matter what the generation. The 996 chassis of 911 was arguably the most significant for Porsche: it was the first all-new platform since the original 911 and, more importantly, the first water-cooled 911. Our subject car is a 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet from the last year of 996 production. The original MSRP on this particular Virginia-based car was $97,985. Of special note for enthusiasts is that this car features a six-speed manual transmission.
Although naturally aspirated, the Carrera 4S shared the same wide-body as the Turbo models. Each C4S sports wider rear fenders along with other subtle modifications to make the 911 look more aggressive. This car features a gray-on-gray color scheme, with a gray leather interior that features options such as power windows, power mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, map lights, electrically-adjustable seats, and a Bose high-end sound system.
Out back of this Porsche 911 996 Carrera 4S Cabriolet is a 3.6-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine. This non-turbo motor puts out 320 horsepower—good enough to reach 60 mph in 5.4-seconds. Ideal for purists, this C4S features the mechanical connection of a manual transmission. For added peace of mind, our subject car has been recently serviced.
