Porsche 911 997 Carrera S manual, registered on 01/09/2005, 57,103 miles, 12 months MOT, full service history, 5 previous owners, HPI clear.
Intro / exterior
This example of the 997 Carrera S is in superb condition throughout and is found with a desirable combination of specification. Being a late 2005 car, this particular 997 has the strengthened IMS bearing, as confirmed by the engine number. Presented in the very uncommon Slate Grey Metallic body colour (paint colour code L23F), the body is perfectly straight and original, with paintwork that is immaculate, possessing a beautiful glossy finish. The car has benefitted from our usual FGP full day's detailing process and as such the superb aesthetics of the 911 are emphasised and protected. The Porsche sits on its original and genuine Porsche BBS 19" "Carrera" alloy wheels which have just been refurbished and had new genuine centre caps fitted and as such are in prestine condition. There are Pirelli P Zeros with nearly new levels of tread to the front and Bridgestone Potenzas with nearly new levels of tread to the rear.
The condition of the interior serves the 997 well. The front seats are the desirable sports seats with the hard backing and the shoulder supports. They are found in good order with only minor wear to the driver's side bolstering. Areas such as the carpets, headlining, steering wheel etc are all in excellent condition and the climate switches that often suffer signs of wear have been renewed. This 911 has a huge range of factory optional extras which include; multi function steering wheel, cruise control, rear parking sensors, sun roof, Bose sound system with built in subwoofer, 8 way electric seats with memory positions, alcantara suede headlining, as well as all the standard Carrera S equipment. There are two remote key fobs with the Porsche and the optional extra codes read as follows.
The mechanical aspect of the Porsche can't be faulted. The previous owner had the car covered under a maintenance plan with Porsche specialists "Revolution Porsche" and and anything that was required was dealt with under the plan, evidenced by the paperwork enclosed in the service history. The car feels as tight as a drum and is utterly responsive to any steering, braking, and acceleration input. The engine sounds beautiful and does not smoke, leak, or produce any unusual noises. The gears change wonderfully and the clutch has just been renewed along with the rear main oil seal. The brakes are all in very good order and stop the car with force. The steering is precise and PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) works as it should, providing a taut and sporty driving experience when activated.
