Intro / exterior
Here lays the opportunity to acquire a fantastic example of the increasingly sought after Porsche 996 in the beautiful Seal Grey (paint colour code L6B4) and in the desirable manual, Carrera 2 guise. The coachwork of this Porsche is in superb order with no dings, dents or notable marks. The panels all align immaculately and the sides of the car are pin-straight. The paintwork is equally nice and in preparation for sale we have had the front end of the car resprayed to remedy stone chips that were present. We have also carried out our usual FGP day's worth of detailing to showcase the car's wonderful condition and protect the paintwork for the foreseeable. Beneath the Porsche lay it's original Porsche Carrera alloy wheels, which are in immaculate condition, having also been refurbished by us in preparation for sale. The correct Pirelli P Zero tyres are on the car, with nearly new levels of tread in all four corners.
The black leather interior sits very nicely alongside the Seal Grey exterior and provides for a classy looking 911. The leather seats have worn well, the carpets and headlining are in as-new condition, the dashboard and door-cards look very well; as do the normal wear points such as the steering wheel and gear stick. Everything in the Porsche works as it should including the electric sun-roof and the air conditioning, which has just benefitted from two new condensers. This is a fairly basic spec 996, particularly for a face-lift, with only suede alcantara headlining as a stand-out option. The optional extra codes read as follows: 226, 411, 425, 476, 490, 567, 650, 936, 981, 983, 985, 09991.
The Porsche has been maintained meticulously throughout its life, as is demonstrated by the enormous folder of paperwork that accompanies the car. The 3.6 litre flat 6 engine mounted at the rear of the car performs perfectly with a beautifully smooth idle, blinding performance and a wonderful sound produced through the sports stainless steel exhaust back-boxes that are fitted. The IMS bearing has been upgraded so this cause for concern has been nullified. The manual gearbox changes through it's six speeds smoothly and the clutch is light with a positive engagement having been renewed circa 10,000 miles ago, when the IMS bearing was upgraded. The steering of the Porsche feels absolutely tight and provides great confidence to the driver when driving the car in a spirited fashion. While with us we have renewed the front suspension upper top mounts, bearings and bump stops. Lastly, the brakes are in brilliant order having been renewed in all four corners in recent times.
