BaT Auction: 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe 6-Speed

This post was originally published on this site

This 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 coupe is finished in Speed Yellow over black and was equipped from the factory with a 6-speed manual transmission, full-leather interior, yellow stitching and seat belts, and carbon fiber trim. The car was first sold at Circle Imports in Long Beach, California and remained in the area until it was purchased by the previous owner in 2003 and relocated to Oregon. He replaced the original 3.4-liter flat-six with a factory reconditioned engine in 2005 and had added more than 30k miles to the car when it was acquired by the seller in August 2017. Service records from previous owners, a recent oil analysis, an inspection report, a DME report, and the original manuals are included in the sale. Now showing 40k miles, this 996 C4 is being sold with a clean Carfax report and a clean Oregon title.

Finished in Speed Yellow (L12H), the exterior is show up close in the gallery below. This car was optioned with flared rocker panels, and 18″ Niche wheels with black centers have been installed. The wheels are fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport tires with date codes from 2014 and 2015. A small chip in the windshield was repaired by a previous owner.

A walk-around video can be seen above.
