Description

"This car can be viewed in person from 14th to 18th July 2020 at our the auction site, Windsorview Lakes, Datchet, SL3 9HYThe first 996 Series cars arrived on our shores in October 1997 but only in hard top Coupé form. Those who wished to have the wind in their hair had to twiddle their thumbs for another year before the Cabriolet versions were launched, as well as Carrera 4 all-wheel drive variants. Both manual and the Tiptronic S automatic gearbox were offered. 2001 saw a revision of the 911 Carrera 2 and 4 ranges, with turbo-look headlamps, revised steering and suspension, some interior upgrades, but most importantly of all, a 3.6-litre engine which developed 320bhp. The Cabriolet version's hood was amended, and it also gained a glass rear window. The Targa version was also revived, but this time around it was a beauty with an electrically sliding glass roof and an opening rear window. A Carrera 4S model with broad turbo style wide arches debuted in summer 2003 and was soon joined by the real deal - the storming Turbo Cabriolet.
This 2003 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S Cabriolet has the desirable turbo style wide arches and, of course, the 3.6 litre engine mated to a Tiptronic gearbox. The car has recently been to marque specialists Brookspeed in Eastleigh, Hampshire where they carried out a major service, replaced all the coil packs and fitted a new gearbox ECU, all at a cost of nearly £3,000. Finished in silver with matching hard top and black interior, this Porsche Carrera 4S is supplied with red brake calipers, rear parking sensors, a V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in July 2021. A modern-day functional classic that can be thoroughly enjoyed during the summer whilst remaining a practical car for the rest of the year.
The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to Government guidelines throughout viewing and auction day."
