Trying to locate a 'nice' C4S.

Must be manual, black interior, Silver, Seal Grey or Lapis Blue - defo NOT black...

Up to 80k miles with full(ish) history.

Ideally with heated seats, but not essential. Prefer lower ownership (5 or less owners would be ideal).

So far all the cars I have viewed have had at least 1 very poor paint repair or have missing service history (4/5 year gaps!), or have been crashed multiple times, or look like a pack of wolves have clawed their way around the interior!


If anyone is selling theirs or knows of a car that isn't advertised online then get in touch, happy to pay the money for the right car in the right condition!!!


Thanks in Advance! Paul

Welcome to 911uk Paul.

You don't mention your budget but if all the ones you've looked at are that rough it's probably not enough for a 'nice one'. Wink

Good Luck though.

Thanks for the reply TB.

What do you think I should be budgeting to buy a nice one?? I've looked at cars from mid-20's upwards.

I'm flexible on budget but not wanting to spend as much as the 13k mile one at Porsche Centre Brooklands... If I need to spend £45k to get a nice one then I'd look at spending my money elsewhere...

I'm amazed that at mid £20k's all you've seen are dross.

Asking prices for good C4Ss have gone up in the last 18 months but £25k should still net you a decent one within the criteria you've set.

£25k was the cheapest one I've viewed, and so far £30k is the most expensive one with a couple somewhere in between. 3 were private and one (the most expensive) was with a specialist. I think perhaps I may have been unlucky so far with the ones I've viewed and also perhaps encountered some ' optimistic' private vendors that don't understand what poorly repaired paint looks like???

I am also looking at the moment for a C4S with similar criteria as yours but I would prefer a car with no more than 65k ish on the clock. I feel your pain though! All cars I have also viewed have had patchy service history, botched bodywork or like you mentioned interior items scuffed/scratched to an inch of its life! I thought they would be more loved!
A heads up Porsche Centre Swindon have a mint Seal Grey car not currently advertised with PSE, and will come with OPC warranty...has 78k on the clock which I believe they are asking £31950. Worth considering with OPC back up.👍🏻

Thanks for the reply DaveH911, I've just asked to join that FB group so will have a look..

Thanks for the link jpsh120, I emailed Cameron yesterday evening and will try to see the car after the weekend. I don't like a few bits on that one (Sport seats, blue belts) but I can always change these if the rest of the car is right... I think they have had it in since the start on the year so I'm not too optimistic as I would have expected it to sell quickly if it's a really good one!

I've looked at this one and walked away....Top money for an average car at best. Air con faulty most likely condenser issue, interior panels scuffed to bits, drivers side Bose door cover kicked in, no receipts for any previous work.

The welcome I was given left me a little cold too...verging on rude.

Would you be interested in a Red custom interior?

Another car viewed today... on with a dealer at over £30k... Unfortunately there's a bit of a story with the car and it needs an engine rebuild. It had seen some paint, none of which was great (poor prep on one panel and poor colour match on a couple of others). Best I've seen so far, but not good enough for me!!!

How does a 2003 model with 2 previous private owners ( both Porsche enthusiasts)with genuine 33K sound? Always used as a weekend car hence low mileage.
Fully loaded with everything fitted. Metallic Cobalt Blue with grey leather interior. All documentation intact.
I bought it a few years ago but when the prices started to rise I put it in dry warm storage where it has been for the last 2 years. I have 4 other Porsche's so i do not feel deprived.
Never been bent but does have 2 small scratches on the front bumper and a cloth web has broken on the drivers seat as the 2 previous users are over 6 ft and heavy which meant they fell into the drivers seat rather than sit into it.
Any other faults would come out and be fixed when it is MOT'd again.
Currently on a SORN but if enough interest i will recommission it.
Anyone interested send me a PM and i can send photos and any details required.

Thanks for the info Peter. The car sounds great, but it's not a colour combo I like..

Good luck with the sale...
