Only the third all-new 911 since the model’s introduction nearly 50 years before, the 991 generation took the concept to the next level: more power, more grip, more sophisticated suspension, more competence. But critically, it retains the defining 911 ingredients that have made the model one of the most enduring sports car franchises of all time. One of those is the horizontally-opposed naturally-aspirated 6 cylinder engine, and another is the manual transmission, with 7 speeds for the first time. Available in both two and four wheel drive, the S variant adds 50 horsepower to bring the total output to 400hp even. The 4S is further distinguished by its full-width rear reflector to recall air cooled cars from 1974 to 1998, which accentuates the widened bodywork compared to lower trim models.
This particular Carrera 4S was special-ordered by its first and only owner through Carlsen Porsche in Redwood City, California. It has $26,000 in options, including Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, full leather interior including brown dash, adaptive sport seats, premium package plus (auto dimming mirrors, heated and ventilated seats, dynamic headlights, keyless entry and drive), Bose audio system, sport exhaust, heated steering wheel, front and rear parking sensors, Sport Chrono, sunroof, multi function steering wheel, rear footwell lighting, and headlight washers painted to match the exterior. The total MSRP was $131,885.
The original owner took delivery on 27 January 2013 and has maintained the car conscientiously. It comes with a stack of service records showing attentive maintenance, all of which was performed by the original selling dealer. The car has WeatherTech floor mats and a Cayman GT4 shifter but is otherwise unmodified and is in excellent condition, presenting like a car with much fewer miles. The car comes with both sets of floor mats, the original shifter, both keys, books, tools, and car cover.
