2001 Porsche 911 996 Carrera 4


  • Low mileage car with FSH showing 16 stamps 
  • £13,000 recently invested across mechanicals 
  • Only five registered keepers 
  • Long MOT to November 2024 
  • Thick history file of work by specialists and Porsche 
  • Desirable AWD car with manual box 

The Appeal 

The 996 gave buyers a proliferation of models and specifications to choose from. Amongst the many desirable options, perhaps it is the surefooted AWD Carrera coupe with manual gearbox that best suits drivers looking for a daily that doubles as a weekend treat. 
This manual Carrera 4 adds low mileage and impeccable service history to its innate appeal. It has been maintained to a very high standard, the 16 service stamps sitting alongside regular brake fluid changes and a recent health check by a Porsche specialist. In January 2024 the car received £13,000 of mechanical fettling including a full service, A/C re-gas, oil pump, suspension work and front discs and pads. 
This is a well-specified and preserved car finished in an appealing colour combination. A long MOT to November 2024 reinforces the sense of a very good example of a much-loved and highly versatile classic.
