2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet

Did you really like the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S in Anthracite Brown from a few weeks ago? Need even more brown? Boy, do I have the car for you.

This is a 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet finished in Macadamia Metallic with Macadamia Metallic wheels, a Cocoa soft top, and a Natural Leather Cocoa interior. That should cover all of it, literally. I’m almost disappointed they didn’t paint the calipers brown as well. All joking aside, I think the result is fairly reasonable looking. You are correct if you guessed it was also ordered with the Tiptronic gearbox, but that is what you deal with when looking at modern 911 Cabs. So is there just too much brown, or is it just unique enough?

2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

We saw what kind of asking prices the 996 Porsche 911 is asking, and I really mean asking, but I still think it might be a sign as to what is to come with that generation. As with everything, the best and most desirable examples get snatched up first, then you make your way down the food chain at a rate that the market demands and of course the supply offers. Thankfully they made a ton of 996s in nearly every flavor, and most of those flavors as relatively appetizing. Today, we have the trusty “not a Turbo but kind of looks like one” Carrera 4S in the always popular Grand Prix White. Inside, black leather. Get one while you can, or still not worth it?

2018 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

The winter months are here for some of us, but that won’t stop the seemingly never-ending offerings of Porsche 911s in wild colors. This 2018 Carrera 4S is finished in the slightly lighter hue of Riviera Blue with the matching brake calipers for extra points. Unlike Miami Blue that is an optional color on the 991 generation, Riviera is only reserved for the paint-to-sample program, so that means tack another $7,000 or so to the sticker. Of course, why stop there when it comes to the options, so a $112,000 base price for a Carrera 4S is now $156,970 when it is all said and done with the options. Now just 6,800 miles later, it is up for sale.

2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

I don’t mean to harp on the Porsche 996 Carrera 4S so much, but the entire package of what they offer, especially at their current prices, always seem to draw me back in. Whether it be the wide rear end, 18″ Turbo Twist wheels, or the heckblende rear reflector, these cars just seem to do it for me. For what they were working with, I think Porsche nailed this design and pulled just enough pieces from the Turbo to keep you interested, but not so much that it was almost as expensive as the Turbo and no one would bite on it. Now, some 15 years later, this are at the bottom of the price curve and ripe for the picking. Time to snag one?

2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

Year after year, it seems to be holding true that the 996 Porsche C4S is one of the best “bang for your buck” models. The buy-in is relatively reasonable given how crazy 911 prices can get, and they surely aren’t going down in value given the newest one is now 15 years-old. Reliability? Well, good enough for a 911. Some will still scoff at the nose and soft interior, but it is what is, and they surely aren’t going away. This example up for sale Brooklyn, New York is a pretty typical example, but inside has a few extra touches. Maple wood anyone?

2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

For as uncommon as the color purple is to see on a car, the Germans weren’t shy about using it. We saw that last week with Carter’s 1995 BMW M3, Volkswagen with Violet Touch Pearl, and Mercedes-Benz with Almandine Black Metallic. Granted those colors are very rare and often by special request, but we are at a place where its so popular that this is a standard color on the GT3 RS. Today, we have a 2002 Carrera 4S in Paint-to-Sample Viola Metallic that, in my opinion, looks amazing. The wide body of the 996 C4S in this color? Sign me up. Although probably not at this price.

2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

I’m a sucker for the details. Sometimes they are big and in your face, sometimes something so small you’d never really notice it. On Porsches, the details are never-ending and they’ll gladly charge you for such. Today’s car, a 2004 911 Carrera 4S up for sale in San Francisco, is not subtle with the details. Finished in the always-popular Guards Red, this one takes the Guards Red inside and splashes it absolutely everywhere. Get ready.

2002 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

The 996 Porsche 911 C4S generated a healthy discussion a few weeks ago when I looked at a very nice 2002 in Miami that surprisingly is still for sale. Wouldn’t you know it, another 2002 happened to pop up for sale and as you can see, this one has a splash of color on it. However, this example for sale in California isn’t as nice as the silver car from a few weeks back. This Speed Yellow C4S has almost 160,000 miles on it and by the looks of it, they were very hard miles. Still, Speed Yellow with matching hard back seats and a painted center console? Tough to overlook. And what if I told you that you could buy this car for under $20,000?

2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

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 qu no los dos?

This 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S for sale in California is a green lovers dream. Forest Green Metallic on the outside, Palm Green leather on the inside. Extra goodies include 19″ lobster claw wheels, heated sport seats, park assist, Bose audio, and more. Where do I sign?

2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

About a month ago I took a look at one of the strangest colors I’ve seen on a Porsche 911. It wasn’t the actual color that was strange, but rather the name of literally “Ferrari-Yellow.” Like I mentioned, Porsche would rather shut the company down rather than put a competitors name on one of their cars now, but it looks like the lure of the Ferrari-Yellow goes further than we thought. Today, I wanted to look at the next generation of that car, the 996 C4S. This 2004 for sale in New York is finished in the popular “Speed yellow” and just like the 993, has the turbo-twist wheels, matching calipers, and some extra bits of yellow on the interior. However, they really went all out with the yellow on this car. Just wait until you see.
