The 997 is the replacement model for the 996. It has kept the 996's basic profile, with an even lower 0.28 drag coefficient, but draws on the 993 for detailing. In addition, the new headlights revert to the original bug-eye design, drifting from the teardrop scheme of the 996. Its interior is also similarly revised, with strong links to the earlier 911 interiors while at the same time looking fresh and modern. In late 2005, Porsche announced the all-wheel drive versions to the 997 line-up. Carrera 4 models (both Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S) were announced as 2006 models. Both Carrera 4 models are wider than their rear-wheel drive counterparts by 1.76 inches (32 mm) to cover wider rear tyres.
With only two previous owners this 911 presents well in the special order paint colour of Prosecco metallic with Sand Beige leather interior. To complement the impressive colour scheme and specification, which includes satellite navigation, tinted glass and retractable glass panoramic roof, this Autobahn cruiser has enjoyed the level of maintenance you would expect with five stamps in the service book. The most recent being completed at Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield at 55,000 miles. This all-wheel drive Porsche is offered to auction with V5C registration document, service book and an MoT test certificate valid until April 2019.
