Porsche 911 997 Carrera S manual, registered on 01/03/2005, 55,810 miles, MOT 31/03/2019, full service history, 3 owners, HPI clear.
Here we have an example of the Porsche 997 S which is found in superb condition and with a fantastic array of optional extras. The coachwork is untainted, straight as an arrow along every panel, free from any scrapes or car park dings. The Basalt Black (colour code LC9Z) paintwork is also in beautiful order, presenting a deep metallic shimmer whenever the light hits it. There are no scratches present and the paint is not marked with "swirl" marks from people's careless washing. There are some very minor stone chips to the front bumper, but that is all in the way of imperfections. The brake callipers have been refurbished so look fresh through the 19" alloy wheels and the red compliments the black body wonderfully. The 997 sits on the desirable optional extra multi-spoke Carrera alloy wheels, all of which benefitted from a recent refurbishment and have Michelin Pilot Sport tyres fitted.
The cabin is filled with a matching black leather interior that has been specified from the factory with an enormous list of optional extras. The condition inside is outstanding and there is still the scent of new leather when entering. The seats are the optional extra sports hard back seats with shoulder supports, which offer much better support when cornering in a spirited fashion. The seats have very little wear , which is the same when it comes to the rest of the interior, with the dash and carpets unmarked, the door-cards suffering minimal wear and the the alcantara headlining, which is also an optional extra, being as new. In addition to the seats and head-lining, the Porsche also boasts optional extras such as; the PCM satellite navigation system, "Sports Chrono" pack which features the sports button that firms the suspension and sharpens the throttle response, and the dash lap timer, Bose sound system with built in subwoofer, steering wheel controls, onboard computer with mpg/range etc, cruise control, xenon headlights. The optional extra codes are as follows: C16, 026, 267, 268, 375, 376, 407, 425, 431, 454, 567, 610, 635, 640, 666.
Mechanically the 997 is even better than should be expected of a Porsche of so few miles. The engine turns over and starts just as it should, idles smoothly, creates an intoxicating noise and offers tremendous performance on the road. There are no leaks underneath, no smoke from the tail pipes and no untoward noises from the internals. The gearbox and clutch provide a rifle-like gear change through all six gears in the manual box and the brakes provide eye watering stopping power, being the "S" brakes with 330mm discs on both the front and rear. The rear discs and pads were renewed only a few thousand miles ago in 2016 and we have fitted new Brembo discs and pads to the front while the car's been with us. The handling ability is fantastic, the Sports Chrono pack provides a taut and lively sports car when the sports button is pressed, but a drivable and comfortable car for when cruising when sports is deactivated.
A comprehensive service history is with the Porsche. All of the services have been carried out by Porsche main dealer, but for the most recent, which was completed at an independent Porsche specialist. There is a well organised hard-back folder filled with paperwork for the car, which includes invoices for works completed, MOT certificates, inspection reports, HPI certificates etc.
