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.

I’ll admit from a purely aesthetic perspective this isn’t the most exciting 911 we’re going to come across. It’s a silver and black 911 produced during a time in which it seems more than half of the 911s Porsche sold were silver. I like Arctic Silver as a color and generally don’t hate silver for the exterior, but I find it more appealing on earlier 911s when it was a little less common. That’s perhaps a strange sentiment, but it is what it is. On the 996 I like something a little more wild. But sometimes a color is popular for a reason so perhaps this one will still have plenty of appeal. For me this C4S is more about the other aspects anyway, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t prefer a better color.
As a potential daily driver the C4S serves as a pretty good option. There’s plenty of power, good stability in a variety of conditions, and it can provide comfortable cruising. For those who enjoy putting the top down the Cabriolet version makes this one even better. So far with only 14K miles on it this 911 clearly has not been used as an everyday driver, but that shouldn’t deter its new owner. It comes with the usual caveats that any non-Turbo, non-GT3, 996 model comes with concerning IMS failure. Have it inspected and then proceed as you see best.
The asking price here is pretty much identical to that of yesterday’s Speed Yellow 997 so combined these make for a couple interesting options. With this one you certainly have to consider the price of a 996TT. You wouldn’t find a Turbo with this mileage for this price, but once mileage moves above 50K there are some out there.
