Porsche 911 997 Carrera S manual, registered on 11/02/2005, 67,650 miles, 12 months MOT, full service history, 4 owners, HPI clear. 

 

Intro / exterior

Here we have a beautiful example of the Porsche 997 Carrera S, which has had its IMS bearing upgraded, nullifying this cause for concern with these cars. Being an early 997, the car is in the lower, cheaper road tax category. The car has been meticulously cared for by its owners and this really shows through its aesthetics. The coachwork is wonderful with its beautiful curvature free from car park dings, scratches and general damage. The paintwork is in gorgeous condition, free from any scratches or swirl marks and benefitting from a full body soft compound machine polish and ceramic coating while in with us. GT Silver (paint colour code LM7Z), first introduced with the release of the famous Porsche GT, was an expensive, special order colour and looks fabulous. It is distinctly different from the usual and common Arctic Silver, with a deeper, darker colour tone and a more prominent metallic. The 997 sits on its original Porsche 19" "Lobster Claw" alloy wheels, which are in unmarked condition with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres fitted with 6mm of tread to the front and rears that have covered less than 5,000 miles.

 
Interior

The black leather interior looks very well alongside the GT Silver exterior and provides for a classy looking Porsche 911. Everything inside has worn very well indeed, including the areas that usually show signs of wear, such as the drivers side bolster and steering wheel. The steering wheel and gear gaitor have been retrimmed to a very high standard in suede alcantara, which feels and looks brilliant, particularly alongside the suede alcantara headlining. Every electrical function inside the car works as it should, including the air condition system, which blows ice cool. The Porsche boasts some nice spec such as; sports hard back seats with shoulder supports, seat heating, Bose sound system with built in subwoofer, alcantara suede headlining, Litronic xenon headlights, and parking sensors. The satellite navigation system in the car has been upgraded to a touch screen Pioneer unit with bluetooth connectivity etc and there are two remote key fobs with the car. The optional extra codes read as follows: C16, 342, 375, 376, 567, 610, 635, 666, 670, 680, 692, 936, 981, 983, 00501

 

Mechanics

As stated above, the 911 has been cared for meticulously and as such, drives like a dream. The 3.8 litre engine performs just as Porsche intended, with a nice smooth idle, vast power and performance on the road, and a gorgeous soundtrack for company, enhanced by the new stainless steel sports exhaust manifolds that have been installed. The engine is bone dry underneath, does not emit any smoke from the exhausts and is free from untoward noises. As detailed earlier, the IMS bearing has been upgraded, so there are no worries to be had in this department. The manual gearbox provides a smooth gear change, the clutch is light with a positive biting point, and the big "S" brakes stop the car confidently, having benefitted from new discs and pads in all four corners very recently. The handling ability of the 911 is fantastic; it is a taut and lively sports car when the electronic sports suspension button is selected, but a drivable and comfortable car for cruising when the sports suspension is deactivated.
