The Porsche Bi-Xenon self-levelling headlight system offers exceptional brightness in all conditions.
Production of the second generation 997 series 911 Carrera 4S began in 2009, it featured an all new engine with Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) which is mounted 10mm lower in the car, revised suspension system, new front bumper with larger air intakes, LED rear and front daylight running lights, all new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) System with touchscreen, hard drive navigation and Bluetooth.
“Behind the second-generation 997’s redesign lies one of the most significant sports cars of the moment. The 911 has always made sense for its practicality and dynamism, but now it’s even more polished, even quicker and significantly greener. It’s even better to drive. Porsche has played down the changes to the suspension, but they have completely eliminated the old car’s tendency to bob its nose up and down in response to changes in road surface and elevation. So you can lean on the front end with far more confidence now, while the 911’s trademark steering remains intact, offering stacks of feedback and instant turn-in. It’s pliant and handles brilliantly – a great mix.”
CAR Magazine 2008
Our hand selected Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet looks stunning in its metallic coat of Basalt Black, a striking colour for the 997.2, especially with the red strip reflector on the rear of the wider bodyshell. Just the Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S models came in the 4.4cm wider body shell, the Carrera 2 and 2S were only sold in the narrow 911 body. The 19-inch Carrera S II lightweight alloy wheels finished in metallic silver are the perfect contrast to the paintwork. The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. The 911 Carrera 4S has been ceramic coated with Gtechniq C1 by a professional detailer, which will help protect the paintwork and repel surface contaminants. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front and clear rear lights, which are free from any damage or moisture buildup. The windows drop as they should when you open the door. The engine and boot struts also operate as they should. The black convertible fabric hood is fully electric and operates perfectly, stowing away in its own compartment behind the rear seats. It has been treated with the Autoglym hood cleaner and water repellent treatment so is in as new condition. The convertible hood can be operated remotely with the Porsche keys or even on the move, up to around 30mph should the weather change suddenly.
The hardback sports seats come with optional 2-stage heating and special order seat backs in Basalt Black metallic from the factory. Just like the rest of the extended black leather interior, they are in excellent condition and provide a perfect pairing to the Basalt Black bodywork. The centre console between the two sports seats was also specified from the factory in Basalt Black metallic, which makes this 911 cabin a very striking place to spend time, and look at with the roof down. The Sport Design steering wheel is a fantastic option, as it includes full size PDK shift levers, making it very easy and intuitive to manually shift gears. The PCM 3.0 Touchscreen has been replaced with a Kenwood DNX7170DABS Dual DIN Touchscreen headunit which brings the in-car entertainment up to date. The Kenwood system comes complete with Bluetooth Phone/Music Module and in-built GPS module with Garmin Satnav, Apple/Android CarPlay, DAB Radio, CD/DVD Player, SD Card Reader and a rear view camera, which works alongside the factory optioned rear parking sensors. There are no marks or signs of wear to any of the trim, panels or switchgear, with the leather retaining a wholly fresh appearance throughout.
Engine and Transmission
Our 911 Carrera 4S is equipped with the 3.8 litre flat six DFI engine, which addressed all previous weaknesses of the 996 and 997 first generation engines. The 911 Carrera 4S engine produces 385bhp and 310ft-lb of torque. The axle load distribution of approximately 40:60 ensures high directional stability and superb road behaviour. The engine starts cleanly when cold or hot, there is no smoke whatsoever either at startup or when driving. There are no unusual sounds or rattles when the engine is running. Our 911 Carrera 4S is equipped with the highly desired switchable sports suspension system (PASM), which includes the dashboard switch that stiffens the suspension in an instant, increasing connection to the road. The Carrera 4S is also fitted with Sport Chrono Package Plus, which adds a SPORT and SPORT PLUS button that sharpen the throttle response, decreases shift speeds, hold gears for longer and blips the throttle on downshifts whilst also adding a dashboard mounted stopwatch to add to the sporting image of the C4S.
The mechanically locking rear limited-slip differential is also a choice addition to the equipment list on this 911 C4S.
The optional 7-speed double-clutch PDK transmission system provides instant changes, unleashing the power of the engine with minimal fuss. Because it has been specified in combination with Sport Chrono Package Plus, it unlocks additional shift speeds in both SPORT PLUS and LAUNCH CONTROL modes. These modes are only available with these options selected from the factory along with PDK. They enable the Carrera 4S to respond and accelerate faster than the standard car, reducing the in-gear acceleration and the headline 0-60mph time by 0.4 seconds to just 4.3 seconds.
Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our 911 Carrera 4S comes fitted with the optional 19-inch Carrera S II lightweight alloy wheels finished in metallic silver, which are original, unmarked, free of damage and corrosion. The brake discs and pads are in good condition with minimal wear. The tyres are N rated Michelin Pilot Sport N2 high performance tyres, the rears have been fitted recently and the fronts have plenty of tread left on them.
Our Porsche 911 Carrera 4S has a full Porsche Main Dealer (OPC) and Specialist Service History, last serviced at 41,136 miles in December 2020 at DW Performance Porsche Specialist. The next service is due in December 2022 or 18,650 miles, whichever comes sooner.
The spark plugs were replaced at 24,949 miles, brake fluid at 41k miles and the auxiliary belt was last checked at 41k miles (changed at 15k miles).
The car comes complete with the original stamped service book, original owners manual pack, history/provenance file and two original Porsche keys. The 911 Carrera 4S is HPI clear, has MOT until 10 December 2021 and comes complete with six months warranty.
