There seems to be a very vocal group of people in the car world that really love green cars. I adore them as well, so much so if given the choice of choosing a color, I’d think I’d go with a dark green. For whatever reason, there just aren’t a ton of green cars out there running around. Probably because the millions of dollars car companies spend on market research says people don’t want green cars, and I do see their point. Its not that companies don’t produce green cars, but rather they don’t produce them on the same level as the silver, gray, black, and whites. So I have to ask, do people love green because its an aesthetically pleasing color on cars? Or rather because it is rare to see and people want things that aren’t so common? Like the little girl says on TV selling taco shells, “¿Por qué no los dos?”

Only reason for selling is I had the chance to purchase the exact 997.1 Turbo I sold a few years back and have regretted ever since. When I saw it up for sale again, I just couldn’t pass it up. With 3 other 911’s in the garage I’ve simply run out of space. This is one of the most beautiful custom ordered Carrera 4S’s in one of the coolest specs I’ve ever seen which I why I bought it in the first place. Very well optioned with documents from new. Showing only 47,451 miles, but the car looks like it has done around 10,000, the condition is impeccable.
The exterior shows very well with no paint damage or dents and with a full front clear bra and larger PPF hips to protect the rear end. The front bumper has been painted to matched perfectly due to a large chip by Porsche. Wheels have also been refinished by Porsche due to clear coat failure in the original color and look perfect.
The interior shows almost no wear at all and everything functions as it should. Gauges read consistent and correct across the dash. The bolsters of the seats are in amazing shape showing no damage. The carpets are as new having been covered from day one and the carpeted factory matts have never been used. This is a chance to own a very well cared for custom ordered 4S. Vehicle is located in Orange County, CA and can be shown to interested parties
What a combo. I’m totally smitten by the car and didn’t even know that Palm Green leather was a thing. I think I would of been totally happy with just a Forest Green exterior, but to follow up with a matching interior is over the top for me. This car looks like it’s been loved with just 47,000 miles and a whole pile of maintenance done to it as well. It did have the IMS flange taken care of so it should be all set there, along a new water pump and thermostat. I’m not seeing anything not to love with this one.
The price? $46,500 Is that above market for a 2006 C4S? I don’t believe so. A Lapis Blue example sold for $45,000 back in January and a more common black example with 44,000 miles sold for $41,500 in June. Is this color combo worth a little bit of premium? I believe so. People want crazy color Porsches as long as they aren’t totally insane and this is on the right side of crazy. I wonder how much shipping from California to my door step is?
