Surprised Which speed yellow Porsche did you own? I already noticed the bugs... they are attracted to it!! I have nicknamed my car 'Bumblebee' as my 1st drive led to a giant bumblebee making love to the car

The one in the tiny profile photo.....C2 Cab, 6-speed manual.


Sold in 2012 for £12k cash, with one previous owner and having done 43k miles.


Happy with it at the time, but gutted now.


If you want to know when car values have bottomed out, just email me as I will have probably just sold one at that time.......................

That's a lovely car mate.
Great find, well done.
They do look awesome in red and yellow.

Welcome and keep us informed of any kind of owners thread you do as I have a feeling it will make good reading:thumbs:

Apologies for the off-topic! C4S is my favourite of the 996 and what an example to own! Enjoy OP!

Someone got a steal of a deal on your old SY 911
Thanks lads, it sure is a brilliant and very unique C4S... Love it!! Will soon have the original GT3 Seats back in the car Smile

I noticed from all the Press pictures my exhaust tips have been changed to the '8' shape. Prefer this look but again something that might have been altered when the 1st owner bought the car from Porsche.

I now have in my possession the EVO Magazines my car featured in thumbsup
and boy does it look good in them! Robert, thank you for pointing this out! Made my week Smile

Enjoy some more pictures Cool

Glad you've got the articles. I love old mag articles as they remind me of the excitement the cars brought before I owned one. Its easy to have your head turned by new ones...

I have the figure 8 style pipes on the back- they look a lot better after a good polish- try rubbing with petrol (really), Brillo pads and some Autosol to finish.

So, have you sourced some GT3 seats?

One thing- do you need to carry passengers in the rear seats... if so the fixed buckets will prevent access.

Was a brilliant article and feature for my Porker Smile Step back in time reading them! I prefer the classic Porsches. However, I wouldn't mind a GT3 RS or Cayman GT4!!
I will try and research other magazines from that era which may have also featured my car. If anyone knows please get in touch.

Will give that a go and polish the tailpipes Thumb

I have been offered a set, which are brilliant and perfect! Just need to save the cash for them... not cheap!! I will advertise my Sport Back Seats for sale, they are in A1 condition Smile

Passangers in the back of a 911??? No chance Smile

Passengers, you're probably right, it's a very small space although my wife (5'9") has managed it by sitting across the seats. Bu what about luggage, it's hard to use the space without folding the seats.

Mike

PS, Lovely car!

Thanks Mike Smile

Yeah the GT3 seats will make life a little difficult with putting luggage in the back! But what the hell, its a Porsche. The only luggage I will take is the misses in the passenger seat Floor
Got other cars I can take if we need more 'space'.

Its been 4 months into ownership of my first Porsche, I have been one happy boy!! I love my Speed Yellow C4S (Bumblebee)! Its been an amazing time so far with some great Sunday drives! I can't wait for summer 2017!

I have done some work on the car in the past month;
1) Replaced a leaking Oil Solenoid
2) New Battery (Bosh S4 80A)
3) Coil Packs and Spark Plugs (getting that done tomorrow) Smile

I then had two modifications;
1) I had to get Jack at Royal Steering Wheels to work his magic, and the newly trimmed steering wheel is awesome! Slightly thicker in alcantara with yellow stiching and band. Brilliant steering wheel and craftsmanship by Jack. Very Happy

2) I had the rear lights wrapped to give a 'smoked' appearance. I wanted the 'Black and Yellow' look. The rear looks very aggressive. But can easily be reverted to OEM without any damage.

Next on the list is purchasing and fitting OEM GT3 Seats as it had a set when it left Stuttgart! thumbsup

Here are some more pictures of my yellow porker!! Also our LSB E46 M3 (Papa Smurf) photobombing some of these Smile
Enjoy

steering wheel is a massive improvement, really lifts the 996 cabin.

this thread has convinced me yellow is THE definitive colour for a '6 4S Laughing

Thanks Guys Smile

Its something special owning a Speed Yellow C4S! Very rare and given this Porker history and spec... a one off example!
I totally agree, yellow is my fav colour on a Porsche hence why I searched and found my dream C4S.

The steering wheel looks and feels awesome. Royal Steering Wheels are great, highly recommend them! transforms the cabin and matches my alcantara headlining too Smile
