Short video of the car: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hktaUH-Oa4Porsche 911 996 Carrera, registered 01/07/2002, 99,435 miles, MOT 18/10/2019, full service history, 6 owners, HPI clear.ExteriorHere we have a Porsche 996 mk2 that we at Friends Green Porsche have sold previously and have bought back from the buyer, in the knowledge of what a good example it is. The 911 is of a spec that is rare and very pleasing on the eye, fitted with the optional extra GT3 aero kit, which includes the side skirts, rear boot lid spoiler and rear bumper spats. The colour of the Porsche is "Meridian Silver" (paint colour code L6A6), which is an uncommon original colour on the 996 and one that suits the car beautifully, particularly accompanied by the GT3 aero kit. The bodywork is in fabulous condition throughout, with no part of the 911's classic curving lines suffering any imperfections such as car park dings etc. The paintwork is equally fabulous, with no noteworthy scratches and very minimal stone chips to the nose. In addition, while with us, we have treated the car to a full body soft-head machine polish and hand wax. The headlights look fresh, having been recently professionally refurbished. The wheels fitted are the 997 turbo style alloys, all of which have recently been refurbished, but have suffered some minor curb marks. The tyres have a good amount of tread remaining.InteriorThe black leather interior is a fantastic suit to the Meridian Silver coachwork. The leather inside has clearly been looked after as it could pass for the interior of a car that is only a few years old. The seats are in brilliant order with no damage or significant wear whatsoever. The door cards, dashboard, carpets and head lining are also all in very nice condition and all the electrical functions operate just as Porsche intended. This particular example benefits from a huge array of optional extras including; alcantara suede headlining, xenon "litronic" headlights, "tequipment" aluminium embodied gear stick, 8 way electric seats, white backed dials, cruise control and PCM satellite navigation. The codes for the optional extras on this 996 are as follows: 226, 288, 411, 425, 437, 438, 446, 454, 490, 538, 567, 601, 635, 650, 09991.MechanicsMechanically the Porsche is faultless. The 3.6 litre flat six offers brilliant performance with a sound track to match. There is no smoke produced, no leaks underneath and no untoward noises. The manual gearbox goes through it's six gears smoothly and with precision, and the clutch operates just as it should do. The brakes on the Porsche produce great stopping power, with the rear discs and pads being renewed for genuine Brembo parts while in with us. The handling of the 996 is wonderful, offering a thoroughly enjoyable drive on country back roads where corners are a plenty. There are no abnormal noises from suspension or steering components and the general feel given through the steering wheel is one that is tight and responsive.Service historyThe Porsche has a full service history, including the fully stamped maintenance booklet, the original leather wallet filled with the owner manual etc, and a folder filled with paperwork such as invoices for works, HPI certificates, sales invoices, MOTs etc.The service intervals are as follows: 27/06/2003 - 11,744 miles, 24/06/2004 - 20,838 miles, 27/06/2005 - 25,181 miles, 26/06/2006 - 34,245 miles, 25/06/2007 - 49,392 miles, 29/11/2008 - 55,631 miles, 18/11/2009 - 64,040 miles, 05/07/2010 - 66,448 miles, 06/07/2011 - 70,236 miles, 29/06/2012 - 75,051 miles, 27/06/2013 - 78,373 miles, 03/08/2013 - 78,452 miles, 05/09/2014 - 85,405 miles, 13/08/2015 - 89,999 miles, 01/12/2016 - 92,411 miles, 22/12/2017 - 96,633 miles, 14/01/2019 - 99,428 miles.As noted, the Porsche has been serviced while with us, so will not need another for another 12,000 miles.
