Porsche 996 Carrera 4 Cabriolet


This lovely Porsche 996 Carrera 4 Cabriolet dates from 2004, so it one of the last 996s. It benefits from a low mileage of just 54,800 and a superb service history with no expense spared. It’s a real treat to drive.

The Porsche is in superb condition, inside and out. It is finished in gleaming Basalt Black Metallic. The interior is full black leather and retains its original semi-matt finish.

The car benefits from a hardtop, wind deflector, cruise control, xenon headlamps, rear Park Assist, PSM (Porsche Stability Management), plus there’s a modern Pioneer head unit with CarPlay and Bluetooth.

The Porsche’s service history is very well documented and shows that the car has had a lot of money investing in it in recent years, to ensure it drives superbly. For instance, in 2023, the suspension was renewed with factory-spec parts fitted by Center Gravity, and four new Michelin Pilot Sport tyres were fitted, too. A new clutch and uprated IMS bearing have been installed, plus new water pump, coil packs and much, much more. The last service was in June 2023 at 52,000 miles, so the next service isn’t due until June 2025.

If you are unable to get to us, please get in touch as we offer a remote buying service. We can first make a personalised video or organise a conference call to show you around the car, covering all aspects you want to see.

You won’t get a hard sell but you will get friendly and professional advice to ensure that we find exactly the right car for you.

Each car we sell goes through a thorough mechanical inspection and any faults found put right before sale.

Philip Raby says: “Wow, this really is a well-sorted, low mileage 996 and, as such, is fantastic to drive. A true modern classic.”
