Porsche 911 996 Carrera 4S RHD UK X51 engine manual 05MY
One of the very last 996 C4S manuals built, special order with ultra rare sunroof delete, alcantara headlining, colour coded centre console, genuine mileage, fitted in 2012 with the rare and powerful X51 engine with no IMS issues, just returned from a trip from Hamburg, what a great car, offers welcome, any inspection welcome too
On its debut, the 996 featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its 1963 introduction, namely the water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled unit. Other changes included a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a redesigned interior. The performance characteristics remained superb with reliability at its core. This Carrera 4S is the ultimate incarnation of Porsche's 996, it has the more desirable 3.6 litre engine coupled with a six-speed manual gearbox.
This fabulous example is presented in the rare and striking colour of Speed Yellow. In 2016, the car was fitted with the more reliable X51 engine by Tech Speed in Germany at a vast cost of €11,280. Further performance enhancements were carried out in 2017, bringing the cars BHP to a mighty 341, at a cost of €7257.52 thus making this particular example much more of a drivers car and considerably more desirable. A service was last carried out in December 2018 by Riverside Performance Engineering at cost of £2067, the invoice for which can be found within the history file. This lovely UK delivered car comes with air conditioning, climate control and electric seats. A wonderfully exhilarating sports car at a reasonable price.
