Over the decades, Porsche has consistently crafted legions of inspired, thoroughly well-built cars armed with outstanding performance. Case in point is this 2005 Porsche 911 Carerra 4S - sleek and low slung, it harbors all the indications that it's been well treated over the years and it's running in top form. Having logged under 70,000 miles during its years of service, it's also well-positioned for plenty of future miles of driving excitement.
That instantly recognizable 911 form is sure to bring a smile to your face. Equal parts thoroughly modern and refreshingly classic, the model has been around since the early '60s and while there have certainly been quite a few updates to stay at the front of the pack both aesthetically and performance-wise, put this '05 next to one of the original specimens of the model and the lineage is obvious. Despite being wider than its predecessors, this 4S has an outstanding drag coefficient and slices through the wind with ease. Its sharp silver exterior is in great shape - this performance machine has clearly been securely sheltered and well-looked after over the years, so you'll find no signs of fading or oxidation even up close ... only a nice, deep shine. As expected with a car that left the factory with so much inherent coolness already built into the mix, it's been kept in entirely factory configuration, and now sports an updated Turbo-style spoiler. Its trim remains unmarked and precisely aligned and the glass surrounding the cabin is in top condition. Just one glance at this car will have you itching to get behind the wheel and out on the road.
Open one of the doors and you'll see a black leather interior that's in clean condition. While you may find some subtle signs of usage here and there, the front buckets have held their form well and show no cracking - and the back seat appears nearly new. Despite the white-knuckle inducing adrenaline rush this car is capable of eliciting, even the factory steering wheel still looks surprisingly fresh, as does the dash area just beyond it, with its array of white-faced displays, amber-colored digital readouts and supple-looking dash pad. As you'd expect in a car with such an illustrious reputation, there are plenty of comfort and convenience features on board and all are functioning in top form, while driver and passenger airbags provide an added measure of safety. This Carrera is built for performance as opposed to errand-running, but you'll also find that the front storage area is surprisingly roomy - there'll be no issues stowing luggage for weekend getaways.
Along with its renown for performance, Porsche has forged a reputation for equipping its rolling works of art with impressive longevity so, having been well-maintained, this Carrera is positioned for a bright future. The fuel-injected 3.6 liter H6 rear-mounted engine is a very able powerplant, capable of producing 0-60 times in just a touch over 4 seconds, and it's running great here, teaming with a 6-speed manual transmission to extract maximum output and offering a world class driving experience. Courtesy of the added aftermarket Porsche Performance exhaust system, the note coming out of the tailpipes is as deep and rich as you could want. Porsche's power steering is as responsive and precise as it comes and, combined with featured all-wheel drive, makes this 4S a corner carver with very few equals as it scorches the asphalt on its set of unscuffed 18" factory wheels outfitted with Continental Extreme Contact Sport tires.
