BaT Auction: 9k-Mile 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S 6-Speed

This post was originally published on this site

This 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S shows just under 9k miles and is finished in Speed Yellow over a black interior. The car remained with its original owner in Iowa for over 18 years and was then reportedly kept in collections in Ohio, Florida, and Massachusetts before its recent acquisition by the California-based selling dealer. The air-cooled 3.6-liter flat-six sends power to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transaxle, and factory options include xenon headlights, heated seats, a 6-disc CD changer, and more. New tires were installed last year, and the vehicle was serviced in May 2016. This 993 C4S is now being offered in California with records since 2016, the factory manuals, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Massachusetts title.

The C4S features wider bodywork than a standard 993, as well as a front air dam derived from the contemporary Turbo. This example is finished in Speed Yellow, and the recent Carfax report displays no history of accidents or other damage.
