2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

Porsche’s pastel blues are some of my favorite of any manufacturer. They are almost beyond vibrant and provide a sense of life to any 911 that takes the dynamic capabilities of the machine and expands through color. Cars stimulate all of the senses other than taste and a heightening our visual sense of any car is bound to either repel some or completely intoxicate others. Most any pastel color will do that – I really don’t think there’s a middle-ground with these colors – and my favorites are blue and orange, both of which Porsche does well. We see them very rarely and this is one of the few non-GT 997s I’ve come across in such a color. The seller has stated that this is Pure Speedster Blue, which is not a color I’ve heard of but since it’s stated to be paint-to-sample that isn’t uncommon. Regardless, it’s along the lines of Mexico Blue and Riviera Blue, two shades that were offered in very limited runs in the ’70s and ’90s respectively. I love them and on this 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S you get modern refinement and mechanicals, but with a vintage color.

The 997’s lines are so smooth and softened that you almost fail to get a sense of the spectacle that comes with a color like this. Maybe it needs an audacious wing or something. Here it looks great, though almost out of place. Still, it’s going to be quite a rare color on any 911 and for fans of these pastels, a rare find. Outside of the color, the rest of this C4S presents pretty well. It isn’t low mileage given its youth but nothing appears abused. I’m not sure I like the Fuchs wheels on a 997, but I do like the black contrast they provide here. Either way, they add to the vintage nature of the paint. I suspect the asking price is a bit high, but with any rare color like this it’s a matter of finding the right buyer so while the price may come down some I think it’ll attract enough interest.

  1. Gorgeous. Can anyone speak to how well they do in the snow should one drive it year-round?

  2. Anyone able to chime in wrt real or overblown fears of IMS bearing failures on these cars?
    Is it enough of an issue to warrant concern?

  3. These things are great in the snow if you’re willing to put winter tires in them. I have a 997.1 4S cab on which I run down-sized rims and p-zero sottozero winter tires and the thing is a total billy goat. I have a very long, very steep gravel driveway and, so long as ground clearance over the snow isn’t an issue, the thing performs better than our Cayenne diesel on the snow IMHO. Can’t say I’ve ever seen another 911 out on a snowy day though…

  4. @Dave, funny as I was just telling my wife about a 996 Twin Turbo that blasted by me on a snowy commute a few weeks ago. I speculated that if your normal cars were Ferraris and Astons, perhaps a 911 Turbo was a winter beater for you. If I had the means, I bet it would be fun!
