  Lot 106
 

2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S


Lot details

Registration No: AF08 LFT
Chassis No: WP0ZZZ99Z8S723411
MOT: April 2024

  • Desirable 997-series Carrera 4S model with manual transmission
  • Less than 83,000 miles and in 'very good overall' condition
  • An 'old school' 911 with a more analogue feel than today's more digital, turbocharged equivalent

Introduced in 2004, the 997-series of Porsche’s iconic 911 allied all the technological improvements of its 996-series predecessor – a lighter / stiffer bodyshell, better suspension / brakes, four-valve cylinder heads and a superior HVAC system – to more classical styling. Available in Carrera or Carrera S guises when launched, the latter boasted a more powerful 3.8 litre engine (rated at 350bhp/295lbft), sports exhaust, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and 19-inch wheels as standard. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds and 182mph, it soon became a driver’s favourite. Better built and better looking than a 996 and smaller and more agile than a 991 (or current 992), great examples of 997 manual gearbox cars are becoming increasingly collectible. For many the Carrera 4S model represented a 'sweet spot' within the model range offering as it did the security of four-wheel drive but without the more synthetic throttle response of the forced induction cars.

According to its accompanying Porsche data sheet, chassis WP0ZZZ99Z8S723411 was built on Valentine’s Day 2008 to right-hand drive ‘C16’ (UK) specification complete with the preferred six-speed manual transmission. Finished in Carrara White with Stone Grey full leather upholstery and an Alcantara headliner, the 2+2-seater featured fourteen optional extras including: Heated Seats, Turbo 19-inch Alloys, Park Assist System, Bose Surround Sound System, Stainless Steel Exhaust Pipes, Stainless Steel Door Entry Guards, Porsche Headrest Crests, Floor Mats and Red Taillights. Warranted to have covered some 83,000 miles from new, ‘AF08 LFT’ is deemed by the vendor to be in ‘very good overall’ condition with regards to its engine, gearbox, electrical equipment, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim. A former Lotus employee and race engine builder, he sums the Porsche up as ‘a well cared for Gen 1 997’ and tells us that he has seen no sign of bore scoring. Riding on Pirelli P Zero tyres and recently treated to an oil service, this handsome 911 if offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, book pack, MOT certificate valid until April 2024 and two keys.
