Lot details

Registration No: WK52 VXR
Chassis No: WP0ZZZ99Z3S602297
MOT: March 2024

  • Just 630 miles from new
  • Two former keepers from the same family from 2002 to 2022
  • Original owner’s wallet, handbooks and service book
  • C16 UK supplied example finished in Carrera White
  • Desirable wide-arch Turbo style body
  • Subject to c.£2,600 of work by Porsche Specialist late last year

The ultimate non-GT derivative of Porsche’s ground breaking 996-series of 911, the Carrera 4S (often shortened by enthusiasts to C4S) was introduced in 2002. Utilising the same widened bodyshell, brakes and suspension as its Turbo sibling, the newcomer also benefited from the enlarged 3.6 litre engine common to most 996-series Generation II models. Rated at 320bhp / 273lbft, the DOHC flat-six was allied to either six-speed manual or five-speed Tiptronic transmission. Able to sprint from 0-60mph in 5.0 seconds and onto 174mph, the manual gearbox cars proved faster and more involving driving but were not so adept in city traffic. Offering better grip and road-holding than the narrow-bodied Carreras and more refinement than the track-focused GT3 and GT2 variants, the Carrera 4S was deemed by many to be the ‘sweet spot’ in the 996 range. Only in production until 2005, just 17,298 C4S Coupes and 5,757 C4S Cabriolets were sold worldwide.

With just 630 miles from new, the 2003 model year Carrera 4S offered here, was first registered in 2002. Rare to find in such preservation of age, it has been cosseted by the same family between 2002 and 2022, with just 2 former keepers recorded within the same family. The naturally-aspirated engine is allied to the five-speed Tiptronic transmission, with buttons on the steering wheel, and wearing the wide body in Porsche Carraraweiss (Carrera White) paint with a full leather interior.

A UK supplied (C16) Carrera 4S, it had been specified from new with optional extras and specification that include: Park Assist, auto speed control, rear wiper, top tint windscreen, sunroof, aluminium, Tiptronic selector lever, alu-look instrument faces, handbrake lever with aluminium inlay and stainless steel door entry guards with logos. Exterior attributes include the optional Porsche stainless steel tailpipes and 18" Sport Design wheels.

Subject to some c.£2,600 worth of expenditure with Two Plus Two Limited, Porsche specialists in Brierly Hill in December 2022, the recommissioning included parts to the cost of c.£700. Two Plus Two carried out an initial check-over, emissions and diagnostic check, and all was okay. The Porsche benefited from a brake fluid flush and change, the plugs replaced, the operation of the driver’s window was fixed, the rear ‘cubby box’ latch and the Tiptronic multifunction switch were replaced, as was a deteriorated cover seal on the heat exchanger.

Offered at auction, this is a rare opportunity to enjoy ownership of a uniquely low mileage Carrera 4S with a high level specification. Ready for a new chapter in its history, on the road or part of a cherished collection ‘WK52 VXR’ is accompanied by the bookpack, including manuals, service book, along with invoices plus current V5C document and will possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale.

PLEASE NOTE: This lot has an MOT certificate into March 2024. Due to the lot being driven to the test centre an extra 7 miles have been added to the speedometer.
