+- INTRO / EXTERIOR

Here we have a lovely example of the Porsche 996, benefitting from a recent, comprehensive engine rebuild, by renown Porsche engine rebuild specialists, “Hartech”, inclusive of 6x nikasil cylinder liners and strengthened IMS shaft and bearing. Seal Grey (paint colour code L6B4) is a classy colour, which suits the 911’s curved body shape to a tee. This 996 has superb coachwork, free from any dings, dents or notable marks. The panels all align immaculately and the sides of the car are pin-straight. The paintwork is equally nice, with a deep glossy shine, minimal marks or stone chips and protection provided by our customary day’s worth of FGP detailing. Being a non-sun roof car, the 996’s roof-line is sleek and uncluttered. Beneath the Porsche lay it’s original BBS Porsche Carrera alloy wheels, which were professionally refurbished within the last 12 months, and as such, present immaculately.

+- INTERIOR / SPEC

The black leather interior sits very nicely alongside the Seal Grey exterior and provides for a classy looking 911. The condition of the cockpit demonstrates how well cared for this Porsche has been, with unworn front seats, steering wheel and handbrake, fresh carpets and headlining, and very clean dashboard and door cards. Everything inside works as it should, including the air conditioning system, which had its condensers renewed in 2018 and a new front to rear low pressure pipe seal and re-gas by us in preparation for sale. This is a modestly specced 996, particularly for a face-lift, with only suede alcantara headlining as a stand-out option and no traction control on the car. There are two keys with the car, one of which is a functioning remote key fob. The optional extra codes read as follows: 226, 411, 425, 490, 567, 936, 981, 981, 983, 985.

+- MECHANICS / DRIVE

The comprehensive rebuild completed on 07/11/2019 at 67,256 miles, means the famous flat 6 mounted above the rear axle performs as well as it did in 2003. “Hartech” carried out an “all bells and whistles” job, with six nikasil cylinder liners, the reconfigured, large intermediate shaft and bearing, as well as all other associated parts and jobs, coming to a grand total of £13,518.00. A fabulous noise is emitted, aided by the new stainless steel sports back boxes and manifolds that are fitted. The all important six speed manual transmission passes through its gears smoothly and the clutch pedal is light with a positive engagement; renewed 27/12/2018 at 63,870 miles. The brakes have very little wear, having had all discs and pads renewed within the last 11,000 miles / 3 years. As has been noted earlier, this 996 is basic in terms of specification, to the point that it is even without traction control. This is something we and a lot of our customers like, as it offers a more raw, and engaging sports car to drive. The steering is sharp and the suspension is silent over bumps with fantastic grip and traction provided by the Pirelli Pzero tyres. There is 4mm of tread remaining at the rear and 6.5mm to the front.

+- SERVICE HISTORY / PREP WORK

The 996 has a brilliant provenance, with its large history folder evidencing in excess of £22,000 spent on its maintenance by its previous custodian, during his three years of keepership.
