1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

While wide-body 911s have always been popular the design seems to have really hit its stride with the 993 and every iteration that has followed has looked tremendous with those wider rear fenders. Don’t get me wrong, the earlier turbos and other special 911s looked quite good as well, but once the 911 took on the curvier shape of the 993 that wider rear began to look just right. I’d even hazard to say that the narrow-body cars now look slightly out of place; they’re too slim. The Carrera 4S showcases those extra curves extremely well while providing the added benefit of all-wheel drive to help keep things moving in the intended direction. As with most 993s the market has remained strong for these cars, especially in colors we come across less often like this Aventurine Green Metallic 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, located in Connecticut, with 58,009 miles on it.

There has been a lot of talk in the comments lately about photography, both good and bad, and I have a feeling this ad might engender further discussion. Here we have a truly beautiful and classic color combination, with an exterior color that can shift and change with the light that is both eye catching and subtle at the same time. But here, with small pictures and low light, it looks drab, maybe even boring. The interior we can see fairly well though the contrast seems off somewhat. So what does this all mean? Well, for one this car hasn’t sold yet even though it is priced some $20K lower than similar cars we’ve featured previously. Granted those cars were likely overpriced, and this one has a few more miles, but given the demand for the 993 in general I’d expect this car wouldn’t sit around for too long.

  1. I may know this car and actually have seen it…if it is the same car that I believe it to be only because of the color combo…it was sold by Weissach in CT….it looked AMAZING..especially the color combo…
    G/L to the seller

  2. yes it is the car….ask was 45900 and it had 57k on the odo at the time

  3. dang when was that? profitable 1k miles

  4. That’s green? Holy hell is that poor lighting. Pro tip: there are many amateur photographers around that would shoot that car properly for little money.
