With coachwork finished in classic Porsche non-metallic black (colour code 747 "Schwartz"), and fitted with the original amber lensed headlights, this example is a classic and retro looking 911. The bodywork is in great order, free from any dings or scrapes to the beautifully sculpted body panel lines. The rear bumper has been professionally resprayed while in with us to rectify a few marks that were present. We have also completed a full body soft compound machine polish and wax which has emphasised the beautiful shine and vibrance that the Schwartz paint colour has maintained wonderfully over it's 21 years. The "Turbo Twist" alloy wheels are fitted to the car and have just been professionally refurbished in silver while in with us, so are in immaculate condition, and all four tyres have good tread.InteriorBeing a 1997 promo car, the interior specification is also rare, with a high number of optional extras and a material found on the dashboard and door cards that is only found on these very early promotion cars. This material is pleasant to look at and gives a retro-classic feel to the cabin. The general condition of the interior to the car is very good. The seats have worn well with no excessive wear or damage. The dashboard, door-cards and headlining are all in very good order. The electrical functions inside the car all work as they did when the car left the factory and as stated earlier, there is a high number of optional extras, including; 8 way fully adjustable electric seats, cruise control, onboard computer and heated seats. The optional extra codes are as follows: C16, 139, 220, 222, 224, 234, 326, 340, 408, 421, 437, 438, 454, 490, 538, 563, 635, 659, 680, 692.MechanicsMechanically speaking, this 996 is in very healthy a condition. The 3.4 litre flat 6 engine runs beautifully, with no smoking from the exhausts, leaks underneaths, or abnormal noises. It starts on the button, idles smoothly and has power in abundance. The noise produced and emphasised through the stainless steel exhaust system that has been fitted to the car is wonderful; it is "sporty" without being too loud. The 6 speed manual gearbox changes as smoothly and the clutch is as it should be, having been renewed at 89k miles. The handling of the Porsche is good, with a positive steering that gives great confidence through the corners. No suspension or steering components produce any funny noises. This example also benefits from having the much sought after limited slip differential fitted from the factory, which also aids it's handling ability. The car stops quickly and confidently, having had it's front discs and pads renewed at the end of last year.Service historyThere is a fully documented serviced history present with the car, which includes the original fully stamped maintenance booklet, a hardback folder filled with invoices for previous works, most MOT certificates since new, and the original leather Porsche wallet with the original Porsche booklets and radio cards etc.The service intervals completed are as follows: 06/08/1998 - 7,256 miles, 25/08/1999 - 14,992 miles, 04/09/2000 - 19,715 miles, 09/01/2004 - 42,031 miles, 17/01/2003 - 35,909 miles, 07/02/2006 - 57,225 miles, 01/11/2006 - 65,246 miles, 12/01/2008 - 73,900- miles, 16/07/2009 - 74,733 miles, 12/11/2010 - 84,028 miles, 21/03/2012 - 87,636 miles, 10/07/2013 - 89,461 miles, 28/06/2014 - 91,619 miles, 09/04/2015 - 94,781 miles, 09/03/2016 - 99,632 miles, 05/03/2017 - 107,671 miles, 26/04/2018 - 113,631 miles.Some works carried out in recent years other than routine servicing detailed in the history folder include the renewal of: Front brake discs and pads, wheel alignment, 6x spark plugs, 6x coil pack, 2x suspension top mounts, 2x air conditioning condenser, water pump, battery, clutch kit, dual mass flywheel, vario cam unit, stainless steel exhausts.
