Porsche 996 Carrera 4 Tiptronic


This 1998 Porsche 996 Carrera 4 Tiptronic is finished in Ocean Blue Metallic, which is a shade lighter than the more common Midnight Blue, and complemented by factory 18-inch Turbo-look alloy wheels.

The cabin is finished in full black leather. Options include rear Park Assist, sunroof, the original CD-22 radio, rear wiper and headlamp washers.

This Porsche has a well-documented service history, which shows that the IMS bearing was replaced with a Vertex item by Autofarm in 2017; at the same time various other jobs were attended to at a cost of £2700. Other recent work of note includes a new water pump, new front brake discs, transmission service and more. The car will have a major service plus a brake fluid change before sale. A new Milltek sports exhaust was fitted in May 2022, at a cost of some £1600, and it sounds wonderful without being intrusive. The car has just a major service, a brake fluid change and new air-conditioning condensers.

If you are unable to get to us, please get in touch as we can make a personalised video or organise a conference call to show you around the car, covering all aspects you want to see. We are based in the historic village of Bosham, on the south coast of England, nestled between the South Downs and Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s a lovely area to visit and you are still very welcome to come and view our stock or just have a chat about cars!

Philip Raby Specialist Cars is refreshingly different. We like to build a friendly relationship with customers; before, during and after you buy from us. 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. We have sold hundreds of Porsches and other specialist cars and have a vast experience to share with you.

Each car we sell goes through a thorough mechanical inspection and any faults found put right before sale. This ensures that your new car is ready for you to enjoy from day one, without you having to worry about a thing. In the unlikely event you have a problem, we include a six-month warranty underwritten by us. We stand by this warranty so, if you have any issue with your Porsche, wherever you are in the UK, we will work with you to put things right, without any quibble or fuss. Please note that we are open during normal hours on weekdays and by appointment at weekend so do please get in touch for a chat and to arrange a visit or a video.

Philip Raby says: “Early Porsche 996s have really come into their own and, driving this one, it’s easy to see why. It’s small, willing and has great performance and handling.”
