Porsche 911 996 Carrera 2 manual, registered 01/09/2003/, 106,910 miles, MOT 07/11/2021, full service history, 4 previous owners, HPI clear.
Intro / Exterior
Presented for sale is this lovely looking face-lift Porsche 996, finished in the attractive colour combination of Arctic Silver paint work (colour code L92U) and black leather interior. This particular example boasts beautifully straight coachwork throughout and paintwork that has a superb finish. There are a few stone chips and minor marks, but this doesn't take away from the 911's overall gorgeous appearance. The Porsche has benefitted from our usual day's worth of FGP detailing, protecting the paintwork for the foreseeable. Beneath the car lay its original, genuine BBS wheels, which are in pristine condition, having just been refurbished, and have new Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.
Interior / Spec
The interior to the car is in impressive condition and is a credit to the car's previous owners. The seats have suffered very little wear and certainly don't look almost 18 years old. Everything inside works as Porsche intended for it to do so, inclusive of the air conditioning system, thanks to having its condensers renewed and a system re-gas by us in preparation for sale. Some optional extras this 996 possesses are; Bose sound system with built in sub-woofer, alcantara suede headlining, rear parking sensors, and PCM satellite navigation. There are two working remote key fobs. The optional extra codes on this car are as follows: C16. 226, 411, 425, 440, 476, 567, 635, 665, 670, 680, 692, 936, 981, 983.
Mechanics / Drive
Mechanically speaking the Porsche is in fantastic shape and has clearly been loved by its owners. As has been noted, we have upgraded the IMS bearing while preparing the car for sale, nullifying this cause for concern. The engine itself is as smooth as can be and there are no leaks, smoking, or tapping noises; just the fantastic sound-track emitted by the stainless steel exhaust system that has recently been fitted. The 6 speed manual gearbox goes through the gears seamlessly and the clutch is brand new, having also been renewed by us in preparation for sale. The car has benefitted from various new suspension components (detailed below), which has made it feel refreshed and given it brilliant ability in the corners. The brakes are all in excellent condition, having had all discs and pads renewed in the last three years.
