The Porsche 911 shape and engineering methodology has not changed much since the very first model, the 1939 Series 64. It has proved reliable and, with the finest designers available, has grown in reputation according to developing trends around it. It has proved itself in motorsport just as it has on the French Riviera. In recent years, Porsche breathed life into a new generation of 911, the 996. 2004 saw the launch of the 997 with improved styling, larger 18” wheels and an increase in power. The 997 C4S was, and still is, widely regarded as the greatest non-turbo version of the 911 with the four wheel drive system providing the grip that ensured stable handling and predictable cornering.
The Carrera offered today is presented with the best possible specification, it benefits from four wheel drive and is an ‘S’ model with larger 19” wheels, a 3.8 litre engine with a six speed manual gearbox. Additionally sports suspension and a sports exhaust are included as standard. The extensive options list include PCM2 satellite navigation, Xenon lighting, a Sports Chrono Plus package as well as a full black leather interior and alcantara roof lining. The service history is, importantly, comprehensive with stamps from both main agents and Porsche specialists. The terrifying performance on offer combined with reliability and build quality narrow down the choice of sports cars on offer to the Porsche 997 and this represents a superb example.
