Wanted (thought about it, did it) 996 C4S

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, 

Long time no banter.

Thinking about a 996 C4S, anyone thinking of selling or know of a good one under a blankly?

Tiptronic ok (yeah, yeah, I know) manual too.  Maybe not black. Not frightened to look at good low km’s car and deal with ridiculous asking price 🤑.

Prefer nice car with a good history at a fair price all round for a super easy transaction. Dreaming, but if you don’t ask....

How good do they look in Lapis, Polar, Seal or Weiss!

KGB, I was looking back through some old posts just yesterday, and thought it had been a longtime since you'd posted. 🙂  

No car to sell, but I will put up a vote for Seal Grey.  Having had a  Seal Grey 987 Boxster and 996 C2, i'll plumb for this as a fantastic colour.  Hides dirt and roadgrime really well, and looks sensational all polished up!!!

TwoHeads, gee thanks for noticing!  Building a house, working my C-19 ass off and an ill wife have sucked some free time out of the system.  I better get back in here and recommence agitation activities.

I’m kinda taken by Lapis. But Seal ain’t bad. You know the drill, good car first, color second.

Big Fan of 996C4S.  The reflector bar across the back of the widebody is the winner.  Always wondered why the Turbo never had it.  Want to be able to add one to my dream car garage.  

Stunning in White.

I love them. And recently purchased one with less than 20k on the clock. And in near new condition. 

I hate you, unless you’re selling, then I love you.

 

@hugh what’s not to like?

I take exception to ^.

I grant exemption to the C4S. (& GT3RS)

I seek redemption from the Fried Egg Gods.

Best A$$ in the business.

I go a bit love / hate with 996 but I would go as far as saying there is no bad colour for a C4S. That said, those 4 colours are the pick.

They are just a georgous looking car, look very contemporary and have some nice kit. Good luck.

Thank you to the power of the forum my ‘maybe’ became a reality, these jungle drums are an incredible force. 

Purchase concluded in a very gentelmanly manner between two men of their word.  A wonderful old world experience.

Pics to follow.

Congrats @KGB you got yourself a great car, over the years @Hughesy has become a near & dear friend to me... we actually flew to Melbourne and drove the cars (997.1 GT3 & 996 C4S) back together 4+ years ago now, via wine country of course! I am really happy its staying in the circle!

Thanks Edgy, nice looking car, both of 'em.  And it's coming back to Melbs where it belongs.

Big shout out to @Hughesy, a spirited and fine gentleman.  Best wishes mate.

 

Lastly Autohaus Hamilton couldn't have been more helpful to work with on a PPI and short term parking awaiting transport.  Thank you Grant & Chris.  Highly recommended *****

How mad a feeling it is to buy a car sight unseen!
