1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S with 1,096 miles

I’ll admit this post is kind of silly. The universe of interested buyers for this 911 is going to be vanishingly small. It’s very high priced and has so few miles you pretty much can’t allow it to leave the garage. Yet here I am writing it up. It’s been for sale for a little while. I’m not sure if it’s been continuously for sale, but I first came across it two years ago and I feel like I see it now and then. I suppose the problem is that every time I do come across it I’m attracted. I was on the hunt for 993s to feature after coming across a Turbo that immediately reminded me why these 911s are so beautiful and captivating. During that hunt this one popped up again so I went with it.

This is a Speed Yellow 1997 Porsche Carrera 4S, located in New York, with a ridiculously low 1,096 miles on it. It’s also well optioned with hard-back sport seats and factory Aerokit. It is nothing other than stunning.

Speed Yellow 2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

I’m sticking with my two running themes here: yellow, in this case another example of the very vibrant Speed Yellow, and value 911s. As I’m sure you can guess I love Speed Yellow. If you’re still reading this I’d guess you’re at least somewhat a fan because with yellow cars in general they’re usually love/hate. For me, part of what makes Speed Yellow work is because it is so bright. I suppose I figure if you’re going to go with a bright exterior color there’s no reason to go half way. Own that brightness and enjoy every minute of it.

Here it looks quite stunning on this 2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe, located in Virginia, with 57,900 miles on it. It looks to be in pretty good condition and it’s up for auction with no reserve. So if you’re in the market for a more budget-friendly 911 and you happen to like bright colors this one should be worth checking out.

2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet with X51 Powerkit

If yesterday’s beautiful 997 Coupe was a little too bright for you or too closed off, what with it having a fixed roof and whatnot, then perhaps this 911 will be more your speed. Here we have an Arctic Silver 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet, located in Pennsylvania, with 14,598 miles on it. Of even greater import, it’s a 6-speed manual and had the X51 power kit fitted from the factory. I don’t know the specific numbers, but I suspect a Cabriolet equipped like this isn’t all that common. Cabriolets tend more toward the refined luxury side of the Porsche market (unsurprisingly) and we find quite a few with Tiptronic rather than a manual. To have both the manual transmission and the power kit is a nice treat indeed for those hoping to get the most out of their open-topped motoring. At least without going all the way to the Turbo.

1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

At its current price I really don’t think this Arctic Silver Metallic 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is going to sell. I also realize that’s a somewhat strange way to begin a post. The reason I’ve chosen to feature this 911 is because I think it looks superb, if not in the most exciting color combination. The mileage is low, though not absurdly so, and it appears to be in original condition. The problem really only is the price. That isn’t a small problem, but with some patience perhaps that price comes down a bit and then you may be left with a very nice looking 993 that you can enjoy with less worry about the miles affecting its value. That in itself is a lovely thing.

Paint-to-sample 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe

I believe this will be the first of the new turbocharged 911s we will have featured here at GCFSB. Newer models aren’t featured all that often here, mostly because they tend to be readily available, but sometimes we come across one that is worthwhile. I think this 911 fits that bill. Here we have a paint-to-sample Aetna Blue 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe, located in Denver, with Black/Bordeaux leather interior and only 1,345 miles on it. Aetna Blue is both an old and new color from Porsche, having first been introduced as a color for the 356. The new version is a slightly different shade so I’d be curious which of the two they went with here. Both are attractive colors, but obviously there’s additional historicity associated with the earlier version. That unique color is part of the allure of this 911. The other part is quite simple: this is basically a new car, but with around a $20K savings. Of course, you’d have to want all of these options for that savings to be fully realized, but it’s still a good chance to let the original owner absorb a good chunk of depreciation, while you take home a nearly new car.

Pastel Yellow 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

Not everyone likes a bright colored car. But dark colors don’t necessarily suit either. Maybe you want something in between: a color that still provokes the vibrancy and enthusiasm of a bright color, but with a slightly lower profile. We aren’t talking about blending in per se, but still only attracting a suitable amount of notice. Speed Yellow, perhaps the most common (most popular?) of the yellows Porsche has offered does not really fit this standard. It’s very bright; it does not blend in, unless you’re very close to the sun, or perhaps a field of sunflowers. Pastel Yellow, on the other hand, seemingly in contradistinction to its name is a bit less bright than Speed Yellow. For the buyer interested in yellow, but without going the whole way, it makes for a very nice alternative.

Here it graces the lines of a really nice looking 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, located in Colorado, that wears the factory Aerokit Turbo II and sits with 61,805 miles on it.

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

I’ve never really been a fan of the big wheel craze that has overtaken the automotive world over the last decade or so (Yes, please do get off my lawn). One of the first things I did with my car was downsize the wheels. They were lighter, wider, looked better, and they fit. Perfect. What does this have to do with this 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S? I’m in love with the wheels. They are 19″ inch Ruf wheels and they are certainly larger than stock. They might be the perfect complement to the wider rear of the 993 Carrera 4S. Simple, almost understated, yet so fantastic!

THIS 993 IS STUNNING !!

That was my first impression of this 993, but there’s plenty else to like as well. The mileage is pretty low and the condition looks quite good. The driver’s seat shows some squishyness from use; the passenger seat looks like it’s rarely been used. Curiously, it has the split rear grille from the Carrera 2S rather than the single grille that was standard on the 4S.…

Feature Listing: 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet

This will be a rare feature for us, but like with most 911s I’m always curious to see colors and color combinations that I don’t come across often. With the 996, because of their generally lower appreciation among 911 fans, coming across those diamonds in the rough proves more rewarding since it provides an opportunity for an interesting 911 – something that will stand apart from the crowd (and there are a lot of 996s out there) – while still paying relatively reasonable prices. The one we have here, a Dark Teal Metallic 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet with just 22,700 miles on it, would rank as the top-of-the-line non-Turbo 911 of its day yet now commands an asking price just under $40K. Even if not the prettiest 911s around that’s still fantastic bang for the buck. Following the trend that began with the M491 package in the mid-80s, the 4S basically is a 996TT in body and suspension, but with the standard naturally-aspirated 3.6 liter flat-six. So you don’t get quite as much power as the Turbo, but the appearance, stopping power and cornering are all on par and with 320 horses on tap the straight-line performance is still plenty attention grabbing.

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

I’m always curious when colors change within a marque, especially when they are colors that I particularly like. Here we have an Iris Blue 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, located in Indiana, with 39,975 miles on it. Iris Blue is a color that we’re fairly familiar with here as it’s been seen on the 3.2 Carrera quite a few times. It’s a really nice shade of blue that veers to the lighter end of the spectrum and one of my favorites available during that time. As should be quite clear, the shade of Iris Blue available for the 993 was quite different, no longer a light blue, but now a dark blue that shows hints of purple when under direct light. The pictures here bear that out fairly well. The full name of the color is Iris Blue Pearl and it is that pearl effect that gives the color is shifting possibilities. I will admit, as someone who loves the original version of the color, that it looks stunning here and seems to work particularly well on the curves of the 993.

Amaranth Violet 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S – REVISIT

s-l1600 (1)

The striking Amaranth Violet 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, which we featured almost exactly one year ago, has come back up for sale from a new seller. As one of the much more rare shades we ever see there is sure to be a good deal of interest here, but whether it can find a new buyer we shall have to wait and see. It’s wearing different wheels now than in its previous auction and still sports a few modifications so it isn’t as original as some collectors might hope, but the color is one you’ll almost never come across. Purple isn’t the most popular color on a car, but it really does look mighty good here.
