Porsche 996 Carrera 4S Tiptronic


This Porsche 996 Carrera 4S Tiptronic is special in a number of ways. First, it’s finished in eye-catching Guards Red which is a rare and sought after colour for a 4S. Second, it’s a 2004 car so one of the very last 996s to be made. Third, the interior is finished in a unique Colour to Sample cream leather which is stunning and sumptuous. Finally, it has just had a full engine rebuild by Porsche specialist Hartech.

The red paintwork is complemented by 18inch Turbo wheels and it’s all in lovely condition.

The stunning cream leather gives a wonderful contrast to the bright paintwork and encourages positive comparisons with Ferraris! The leather extends to the steering wheel boss and rear centre console.

Other options include fully electric seats with driver’s memory, Alcantara roof lining, rear Park Assist, Aluminium handbrake lever and gear selector, Porsche Stability Management and a rear wiper. A modern Alpine head unit offers DAB radio, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a handy rear parking camera.

The engine rebuild was done by Hartech on June 2021 at 78,307 miles. In addition, there’s a large history folder with receipts going back to 2007, plus a fully stamped service book.

Philip Raby says: “What a gorgeous looking car! Guards Red works so well on 911s yet it’s rare to see one of this generation resplendent in red. The cream interior is unique to this car and is quite lovely.”
