Porsche 911 997 Carrera S manual, registered on 01/09/2006, 68k miles, MOT until September 2018, full service history, 5 owners, HPI clear.
Stunning Porsche 997 Carrera S, built on a 56 reg, making it the more desirable model with the later, stronger IMS bearing and lathe shaft. The previous owner has clearly cherished this example, having spent £1,000s on it in his three year ownership, and having bought it for £35,000 from the Porsche main dealer. The car is finished in Atlas Grey (colour code M7X) and the body condition is superb. There are no dings, no nasty scrapes, and barely any stone chips to note. The paint condition is equally superb, with a gorgeous shine, no blemishes, and no swirl marks thanks to the full body machine polish completed while in with us at Friends Green Porsche. The 997 sits on it's original 19 inch Porsche "Lobster" alloy wheels, all four of which are in good condition and have very good Continental Conti Sport tyres fitted.
The inside of the Porsche is a very pleasant place to be. The black leather trim is in good order, and the seats are the optional extra sports hard back seats with shoulder supporting, which are quite rare in the 997. There is slight wear to the drivers side bolster, but other than this, everything is in fantastic condition. Everything inside operates as Porsche intended for it to, including the air conditioning, having just had a new pipes and been serviced with a re-gas. The car boasts a very high spec with options such as Bose sound system, PCM Porsche satellite navigation system, switchable sports exhaust, switchable sports suspension, and sports hard back seats, to name a few. Optional extra codes: C16, XLF, 375, 376, 425, 567, 610, 635, 670, 680, 936, 981, 983. There are two working remote key FOBs present.
Mechanically speaking, the Porsche is absolutely faultless and is truly excellent to drive. The car feels utterly tight in every aspect. The 3.8 litre flat six engine performs perfectly, with no leaks, smoke, or untoward noises, producing a phenomenal amount of power and a noise to never get tired of. The handling ability of the car is brilliant, particularly when the sports suspension is put in to operation, firming everything up. The brakes are sharp, with the rear discs and pads replaced 6,000 miles ago. The gears are smooth; the gearbox oil was replaced at the last service interval less than 1,000 miles ago. Lastly, the clutch and flywheel were renewed at Porsche main dealer 6,000 miles ago for the cost of almost £2,000, so are in perfect order.
As stated previously, £1,000s have been spent on the Porsche whenever necessary, and all the paperwork to evidence this is present in the service history. There is also, of course, the service booklet, which is fully stamped up with stamps from the Porsche main dealer or recognised Porsche specialists.
The following lists the car's service intervals: 29/08/2007 - 20,060 miles, 08/09/2009 - 31,543 miles, 11/07/2011 - 40,153 miles, 01/07/2013 - 47,298 miles, 21/08/2015 - 55,700 miles, 04/09/2017 - 67,159 miles.
Additional work completed in the last 12 months & 6,000 miles include; window regulator, air con pipes and system service, brake pipes, hand brake cable, 02 sensor, new rear brake discs and pads, 4 wheel alignment, clutch, duel mass flywheel. The above work, along with the routine servicing amount to £9,000 in this 12 months - There is no wonder the car feels so tight and should not need any money spent on it in the foreseeable future.
