By 2004, the Porsche 996 Carrera was completely refined and widely known as the more reliable model year. Furthermore, many of the automotive journalists touted the 996 C4S as one of the most drivable Porsches ever built. Plus, Porsche is still regarded as one of the best builder of soft-top sports cars.

This Porsche was a very late 2004 model with a build date of June 28th, 2004. It was a special Porsche executive ordered vehicle as a display for a local dealership. It was sold by Newport Beach Porsche to the first owner on July 2nd, 2005. This C4S was custom optioned from the factory with the following:

Aluminum look dashboard trim strip
Aluminum look instrument surround
Aluminum look center air vent bracket
Aluminum look instrument faces
Factory short shifter
18” Sport Techno wheels
Factory 17mm spacers for rear wheels
Porsche crest embossed in headrests
Headlamp washer
Heated seats
Wheel caps with colored Porsche crest
Litronic (xenon) headlamps
Bose sound system
Soft ruffled leather seats
Removable windscreen
Lojack (installed by the dealer)

The MSRP for this model far exceeded $100,000 when new.

The first owner only drove the car for 2-years/11,000-miles before trading it in. The current owner purchased it as a certified car in 2007. For the past 8-years/35,000-miles, this owner has used the car for weekends only. He was fastidious with his maintenance and only used either the local Porsche dealer or Vision Motorsports (one of the top independent Porsche service centers in Southern California). No service was over-looked. It went in at least once a year for regular maintenance. The oil was frequently changed. Furthermore, the filter was always cut open and inspected as well as a magnetic drain plug installed. In fact, this owner had the oil sent out for analysis to make sure everything was operating inside the motor properly. Even the mechanic suggested that the IMS bearing did not need to be replaced until it was time for a clutch due the how clean the oil was and how often it was changed.

Significant/recent services include:

Replaced cabriolet hydraulic pump
New water pump
Brakes (pads and rotors) within last 10k miles
Coolant system flush
Annual oil services (at least)

The condition of this C4S is excellent. The paint is all original and verified with a paint meter. It looks like new with minimal signs of use. The glass is all original including the windscreen. The soft top looks great with hardly any wear marks. The 18” wheels are in great shape with no curb rash. The Bridgestone tires have under 50% life remaining. The brakes are near 80% life remaining. The interior looks equally as nice with no tears or rips on the leather. The dash, door panels, carpet, and soft top headliner look fresh. There are no strange odors either. It appears to be a lightly used Porsche. All the functions operate properly including ice cold A/C. The full power top works perfectly with the touch of one button.

This Carrera 4S drives great. The power feels strong and the car shifts with ease. The clutch has a good feel with no slipping. The brakes have great bite and steering is precise. It is hard to distinguish this 11-year old Porsche from when it was new. It is obvious that this example was always garaged and serviced.

California registration is paid and good through July of 2016.

This Porsche comes with all the books/owner’s manuals, most service records, tool kit, spare tire, windscreen, jack, and extra key.
