Our BaT pick of the day

The 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet combines a soft top with a 355 hp 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine and four-wheel drive.

This in particular 911 Carrera 4S Convertible includes a six-speed manual transmission.

Bidding closes on Monday 9 May.

It only takes a few gray Michigan winters to appreciate the spring sunshine. That’s why this 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet currently up for auction on Bring a trailer— which, like Car and driveris owned by Hearst Autos – caught our attention.

The allure of this particular 997-generation 911 stems from the fact that it combines the model’s lowered body style with a six-speed manual transmission and four-wheel drive. The fact that this 911 is a Carrera 4S and not a lesser Carrera 4 is the icing on the cake, as the 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine produces a total of 355 horsepower – 30 horses more than the lesser Carrera’s 3.6-litre 4 unit.

What better way to enjoy the warm weather than in a 911 with an open-top gearshift and extra power? This car’s four-wheel drive system means it should also offer reasonable competence on poor surfaces. After all, it sometimes snows in April — or May — in the Midwest.

Not that we recommend driving this 911 through the white stuff on a regular basis, especially if you’re doing so in a state that makes its roads salty. With approximately 5000 miles on the odometer, this 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet is in far too fine a condition to risk rotting or rusting.

While the gray paint on this Porsche may seem a little too tame to some, the understated hue appeals to our humble sensibilities. Plus, we think it complements the gray 19-inch wheels, black soft top and brown interior, which includes leather-trimmed seats, a Bose stereo and an in-dash navigation system, the latter of which may be trickier. . than favorable given the age of the arrangement.

We bet the latest bid for this Porsche drop-top will trump the latter 2008 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet to cross Bring a trailer‘s virtual auction block, a 56,000-mile example equipped with the less desirable five-speed automatic transmission that sold for $41,000 late last year. Whether this 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet will be sold ultimately depends on the seller’s reserve. Either way, we’ll know where the proverbial hammer falls on this 911 four-wheel drive convertible once the bidding ends on Monday, May 9.
