Short video of the car:
Lovely example of the increasingly admired Porsche 996. This is a year 2000 pre face-lift model, finished in the uncommon Zenith Blue metallic paint and in coupe, rear wheel drive, manual gearbox guise. The bodywork is in lovely order throughout, every panel and panel gap is straight and original and there are minimal marks, limited to a few minor marks and stone chips to the bumpers. The paint work is beautiful, possessing a brilliant glossy shine and benefitting from a full body soft machine polish and hand wax while in with us. The 911 lays on 18" "Lobster Claw" style alloy wheels, which are the same design as the Lobster Claw wheels that come on the later 997 model, but in 18" size to fit the 996's body properly. The wheels are in nice presentable condition with new centre caps and Pirelli P Zero tyres fitted. The front tyres are nearly new and the rears have lots of tread remaining.
Inside the car there is a black leather interior, which is also in fantastic condition and makes for a pleasant cockpit to drive from. The leather seats are un-damaged and free from significant wear, with only minimal signs showing on the drivers side bolster as per the pictures. The drivers side floor mat has some wear but the carpets are all in beautiful condition. The headlining, steering wheel, door cards etc are also all in very good condition with minimal wear. All the functions inside work as they should, including the retractable electric sun-roof and the air conditioning. There are three keys with the car, two of these are the remote fobs that work as they should. The 911 has optional extras including alcantara suede headlining, on-board trip computer with MPG calculator etc, extra stereo speaker in the front door cards, three prong steering wheel and Porsche Stability Management (PSM). The optional extra codes read as follows: C16, XRB, 236, 288, 424, 425, 436, 437, 438, 446, 476, 490, 538, 567, 650, 659, 689, 695, 936, 981, 983, 09991.
This 911 drive very well and without fault. The 3.4 litre boxer engine starts as it should, idles smoothly, revs crisply and offers wonderful performance on the road. There is no smoke emitted from the tail pipes, no leaks from underneath and no noises present other than the fantastic sound produced through the exhausts. The six speed manual gearbox changes through the gears smoothly and the clutch engages well and is light, just as it should be. The brakes stop the Porsche well having been rebuilt less than two years ago, including new discs and pads all round, nearly all the brake lines renewed, new hand brake shoes etc. The handling of the car wonderful with the steering feeling tight and positive, and the suspension components being free from untoward sounds.
