Intro / exterior
Here we have a special example of the Porsche 997 Carrera S, with an unusual and desirable combination of optional specification, and the correct work just carried out, such as IMS bearing, clutch, coolant pipes and tandem pump. This example is a beautiful looking 911, with untainted coachwork and Basalt Black (colour code LC9Z) paintwork with a fantastic, glossy metallic shine, and minimal blemishes, limited to minor stone chips to the nose of the car. The Porsche has also benefitted from our usual day's worth of detailing to exhibit and protect the superb physical condition of the Porsche. This particular 997 was factory fitted with the very rare M030 sports chassis and as such, lays 20mm lower than the base model Carrera, giving a lovely sporty stance. Beneath lay the desirable optional extra multi-spoke Carrera alloy wheels, which have just been refurbished while with us, so are without a mark. The tyres fitted are Michelin Pilot Sports with nearly new tread to the front and 3-4mm to the rear.
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; heavily used areas such as the seats, steering wheel and door-cards have very little wear, the dash and carpets are unmarked, and the the optional extra alcantara suede headlining is as new. Some of the desirable options that this car boasts includes; sports hard back seats with shoulder supports, steering wheel controls, alcantara suede headlining, Bose sound system with built in subwoofer, and of course, the very rare aforementioned M030 sports chassis, which comes accompanied by option code 220; limited slip differential. The option codes list as follows: C16, 030, 220, 375, 376, 407, 431, 567, 610, 640, 666, 670, 680, 692, 936.
Mechanically the 997 is in wonderful condition and has just had all of the work that these cars often require at this age carried out while in with us. The engine performs as Porsche intended, with a fantastic sound and tremendous performance on the road. We have upgraded the IMS bearing for our favoured "EPS" unit, so there are no worries to be had in this regard for the new owner. There are no leaks underneath, no smoke from the tail pipes and no untoward noises from the internals. The six speed manual gearbox provides a rifle-like gear change and the clutch is light with a positive bite, having been renewed with us in preparation of sale. The large "S" brakes provide great stopping force and are found in good condition, having been renewed to the rear and cleaned at the front within the last 7,000 miles. The handling ability of this particular 997 is what makes it particularly special; the M030 sports chassis and limited slip differential combine to provide a 911 that has an involved, sporty feel, with brilliant cornering ability.
