Short video of the car: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSUJ-ZE57kgPorsche 911 996 Turbo manual, registered on 19/03/2001, 12 month MOT, good service history, 5 owners, HPI clear.ExteriorHere we present a very rare beast: A manual coupe Porsche 996 Turbo, finished in original and genuine "Orange Rot" paint colour (colour code L1A8). We are yet to come across another Porsche in this colour, so the rarity really can not be emphasised enough. The car looks fantastic and is in superb condition. While in with us we have had both bumpers removed and professionally resprayed to rectify the small stone chips that were present. The body is perfectly straight and there are minimal marks anywhere on the paintwork. The car has been machine polished and waxed with us at Friends Green Porsche and the shine to paint is gorgeous. The original Porsche turbo BBS wheels are on the car and have just been professionally refurbished. Four new centre caps have been fitted and four premium branded tyres with good tread are on the wheels.InteriorThe interior to this example is another rarity, with an array of optional extras specced to the car when new, and a beautiful combination of Metropol Blue leather finished with special order orange stitching to match the exterior to the car. To make the cockpit an even more special place to be, we have fitted the "GT3 centre console delete". This removes the compartments below the stereo and replaces it with carpet, like fitted to the GT3 model. The condition of the leather is superb with very minimal wear to be seen throughout, as can be seen in the pictures. The alcantara suede headlining, door cards, carpets and dashboard are also all in brilliant order. Everything inside functions as it should, from the air-conditioning system to the hydraulic raising rear spoiler. As previously mentioned, the Porsche has a wonderful spec, which includes; full trip computer, sports hard back seats, special order orange leather stitching, stainless steel "Turbo" door shut covers, aluminium embodied "tequipment" gear stick and handbrake. The option codes read as follows: C16, X6C, X71, X97, X98, 375, 376, 424, 539, 540, 567, 650, 683, 699, 00051, 00101, 09991, 21451, 21631. There are two working key FOBs present.MechanicsMechanically the 911 is in excellent condition, having had a substantial amount of crucial parts renewed very recently. The engine is beautifully smooth and revs up cleanly and crisply. There are no leaks underneath, no smoking from the exhausts and no abnormal sounds internally; just the furious noise of the twin turbo flat six motor. The Porsche has benefitted from a full stainless steel sports exhaust system, including manifolds, catalyst converters and back boxes.The turbos themselves boost up exactly as they should, and when they do, the car is eye-wateringly quick. The six speed manual gearbox is silky smooth and the clutch is good having been renewed in 2015, along with an upgraded single mass flywheel and new rear main oil seal. Please note that the uprated single mass flywheel does make a little extra noise at idle than the duel mass. The big turbo brakes were all renewed in 2014 so are in very good order and stop the car fantastically. While in with us, we have had all four suspension springs, both front suspension top mounts and a towing arm renewed, followed by a four wheel alignment. This has resulted in a car that feels utterly tight and responsive through the steering wheel.Service historyThere is a good service history present with 7 stamps in the maintenance booklet and a folder full of paperwork detailing the work that has been carried out on the car throughout it's life.The service intervals are as follows; 11/05/2004 - 21,288 miles, 19/10/2006 - 34,481 miles, 27/10/2009 - 49,349 miles, 20/02/2013 - 61,252 miles, 28/04/2014 - 68,251 miles, 19/06/2015 - 74,285 miles, 15/11/2017 - 91,176 miles.Since 2014 the paperwork present evidences the car has undergone works such as; new fuel pump, new window motor and regulator, new brake discs, pads and wear sensors all round, new uprated clutch, new uprated single mass flywheel, new rear main seal, new mass air flow sensor, new lambda sensor, 6x new coil packs, 6x new spark plugs, gearbox oil replaced. Since being in with us, the car has had; new rear tow arm, new suspension top mounts, 4x new suspension springs, four wheel alignment, new turbo pressure pipe, new turbo check valve, new turbo oil tank and seals, new spoiler micro switches and a service. As detailed in the "mechanics" section, the Porsche has also benefitted from the fitment of a full stainless steel exhaust system, including manifolds, catalyst converters and back boxes. With all the above work completed, the car is now in fantastic mechanical condition and will not need money spent on it for the foreseeable future.
