Porsche 911 996 Turbo manual, registered on 18/12/2001, 74,712miles, MOT 26/02/2021, full service history, 7 owners, HPI clear.
Here is the opportunity to own an increasingly rare car; a 996 Turbo coupe with manual gearbox, low mileage and factory aero kit. The car is totally original, unmodified and has been lovingly cared for. The bodywork is untainted with no car park dents or scratches and every body panel is perfectly straight and original. The body colour is "Arctic Silver" (colour code L92U), which is fast becoming the classic 996 colour and looks fantastic on the wide bodied coupe. The factory aero kit is a rare option and looks fantastic on the wide-bodied 911. This factory aero kit is not to be mistaken by the GT2 rear wing that a lot of 996 Turbos are found with, which are installed by owners as a cheaper fix to replacing the standard spoiler when the hydraulics fail. The paintwork is fabulous with a deep and vibrant metallic shine, free from any blemishes or "swirl" marks and benefitting from a full body soft head machine polish and hand wax while in with us. There are a few minor stone chips to the nose, but this is all there is in the way of imperfections. The Porsche runs on it's original and genuine 18" Porsche Turbo wheels, which were specifically made for the wide body of the 4S and Turbo models. All four alloys are in brilliant condition and have the correct N rated Michelin Pilot Sport tyres fitted with good amounts of tread.
The cabin is filled by a black leather interior, which makes for a timeless combination alongside the silver exterior. The condition represents the low miles that this car has covered, with very minimal wear to be seen. The optional extra sports hard back seats with shoulder supports have very little wear signs, even to the side bolstering, which often suffer from cracking. The steering wheel is also still looks fresh and totally undamaged and other areas of the interior such as the carpets, dash, door-cards and optional extra alcantara suede headlining etc are also all in brilliant order. Of course, every electrical function works, including the air con, which has just benefitted from new condensers, and the two remote key fobs that are present. In addition to the sports hard back seats and alcantara suede headlining, this Turbo also has optional extra spec such as white counter dials, "Tequipment" aluminium embodied gearstick and handbrake, front seat heating, Litronic xenon headlights, stainless steel "Turbo" door shut plates, Bose sound system, PCM satellite navigation system and cruise control. The optional extra codes are as follows: 139, 340, 375, 376, 454, 539, 540, 567, 635, 650, 662, 689, X70, X71, 09991.
It is evident from the way the Porsche drives and performs that it has been cared for meticulously. In the past two years the owner has spent nearly £5,000 ironing out any mechanical niggles and we have carried out further work in prep to perfect the car (all detailed in the below "service history" section). There are no untoward internal noises from the engine, no smoke from the tail pipes and the underneath is as dry as a bone. The twin turbo'd Metzger engine is blisteringly quick and performs just as it did the day it left Stuttgart. The clutch and manual gearbox change through the six gears smoothly and with precision and the large Turbo brakes stop the car tremendously, with the discs and pads found in very good order with lots of life remaining. The Porsche feels utterly tight through it's steering wheel and is free from any unwanted noises from any suspension component, having had lots of such components renewed recently, including front suspension lower control arms, trailing arms and trailing links.
There is as full a service history as could be wished for with the 911, evidencing how the car has been meticulously maintained throughout all its years. The car has just undergone a major service including; oil, oil filter, air filter, spark plugs, gearbox oil, differential oil, brake fluid, and ignition coil packs.

All the original Porsche booklets are present in the original Porsche owners wallet and there is a folder full of paperwork evidencing the precious care this Turbo has benefitted from. In preparation for sale we have had the front aero splitter removed and resprayed, installed a new N/S side skirt, replaced the indicator stalk assembly and repaired the air conditioning. Some other works shown by the car's history file to have been completed in the last two years includes: Front suspension lower control arms, front suspension trailing arms, front suspension trailing links, four wheel alignment, turbo heat shields, starter motor, battery, air conditioning condensers, coolant radiators, air conditioning control panel.
