This is not a car I normally would post. The dealer hasn’t provided us much in the way of description and it’s PDK rather than a true manual, which isn’t typically what I seek out in these cars (though more on that below). However, this color combination is so striking that I simply cannot pull myself away from it. Here we have a situation where two very attractive colors have been combined to produce a result that I think makes each of those attractive colors even better. The exterior is paint-to-sample Aetna Blue, which first originated on the Porsche 356 and is itself a wonderfully elegant and vintage color. The interior is a Bordeaux over Black combination that seems to have just the right amount of each to make the interior look very refined. Bordeaux, itself, already is a fairly refined version of a red interior. When you put these colors together the whole certainly is greater than the sum of its parts. I really like it.

This is a pretty well-optioned Carrera 4S with Burmester audio, 18-way sport seats, PDK, and of course the aforementioned PTS exterior over Bordeaux/Black interior. I mentioned at the outset that I typically don’t seek out PDK when looking for a newer 911 to post. There are a lot of them so the relative rarity of the manual makes those a bit more worth our while to feature. That said, PDK really does make a lot of sense in a 911 like this. This 911’s spirit very much shifts to the refined luxury side of the Porsche spectrum and as a C4S with PDK it should make for a great everyday transport. And, of course, those colors will help you stand out from the pack at any gathering.
Truth be told, I’ve written about this 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S before when it came up for sale about a year ago. It is now back from a different seller and with about 2,000 additional miles on it. At 3,757 the mileage is still quite low and my main takeaway from that previous post still applies: here you have an opportunity to get into a stunningly pretty, like new, 911 for around a $20k discount from its list price. That in itself isn’t too bad even if the asking price is a bit high among these cars.
