This beautiful Porsche Carrera 4 is a Pacific NW car with only two owners from new. It has been serviced regularly at the same independent Porsche specialty shop - Gerber Motorsport - in Seattle since 2012 and has only 64K on the odometer. Most recently, it had the alternator, a front sway bar link, cabin air filter and wiper blades replaced and underwent a full Pre-purchase Inspection. All records are available and everything works as it should. The brakes and tires are all in good condition, with 6mm of brake pads remaining in both front and rear, and over 6/32" of tread left on the rear tires and 8/32" on the fronts. There are a few minor flaws and small chips in the paint and some normal scuffing on the interior and the wheels. Equipped with a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/NAV system and an electric sunroof, this car is ready for summer driving fun!

With its classic lines, the Porsche 911 is a beautiful car. Totally redesigned for the 1999 model year, the Carrera's body is longer, wider and sleeker than any before. During its 34-year history, Porsche has refined the 911 body several times, but the roofline and windshield had always remained the same as the original model. For 1999, the roofline, windshield and all other body sections were new. This newest-generation 911 represents the first clean-sheet redesign of this legendary sports car since its introduction in 1965. Nevertheless, it maintains the unmistakable 911 profile and classic styling cues.

The 2001 Porsche 911 C4 is packed with lots of technology: Porsche Stability Management, applies braking force to individual wheels and, if necessary, reduces engine power when it detects a loss of grip at the front or rear. On the racetrack, PSM can lend a helping hand through the slaloms and fast corners.

Though thoroughly modernized in this fourth-generation 911, the interior is unmistakably Porsche. The ignition key is, of course, on the left, a tradition carried through from a bygone era when Le Mans starts required drivers to run across the pit lane to their car, jump in and take off, fastening their harnesses as they headed onto the front straight. Driving position is perfect with excellent lateral support for spirited driving. This is a comfortable car for traveling long distances. Visibility is superb all around and instruments are an attractive, quick read.

For 2000, Porsche upgraded the appearance and feel of interior materials, applying a special soft-touch grain to the console, door trim, instrument panel and other areas. New aluminum-look trim for the shifter, door handles and handbrake release button lends a touch of classic sports car elegance to the design. The automatic climate control now features as standard the previously optional activated charcoal odor filter.
