2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Tiptronic


  • Sought after 4S with Turbo factory aesthetics 
  • Low mileage car with full Porsche & specialist history 
  • Recently health check and fettling 
  • 3.6litre engine and 5spd Mercedes-Benz Tiptronic gearbox 
  • Surefooted 4WD handling and performance close to Turbo 

The Appeal

The 996 was like a star striker running round the opposition to score the perfect goal.  After years of titivating the original, Porsche pulled it out of the bag with a car that instantly catapulted the 911 into the modern era and to the front of the supercar queue.

Of the many models available to eager buyers, 2002 delivered one of the most alluring: the simply named Carrera 4S.  Equipped with the improved 3.6litre engine and four wheel drive to tame the car's legendary tendency to create 911-shaped holes in hedges, the 4S also channelled the Turbo's aesthetics. 

This low mileage 2003 4S is in a popular colour combination and has that desirable 911 feature: full service history.  Even the brake fluid and condition checks have been kept updated. 

It has recently been checked over and fettled by a Porsche specialist for sale.  Surefooted, devastatingly quick and smartly presented, it displays every inch of why these great cars are so captivating.
