The 996 model of the 911 Porsche was replaced by the 997 in 2005. The new model shares less than a third of its parts with the outgoing 996 but is technically similar to it. At the launch two versions were introduced. They were the Carrera and the more powerful and better equipped Carrera S. This was the first time since 1977 that the 911 was offered in two power versions. The specification differences included larger and more powerful brakes with red calipers, lowered suspension featuring the ‘Porsche Active Suspension Management’ system, Xenon headlights and a sports steering wheel.
Originally registered on 1st June 2005, the smooth lines of this elegant looking Carrera S are accentuated by stunning black metallic paint and a matching black leather interior. We are informed by the vendor that this Porsche is a joy to drive. From the comfort of the electric seats, the road holding on these Porsches is exceptional and the responsiveness of the 3.8 litre engine is certain to put a smile on a driver’s face. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until September 2021, this extremely low mileage Porsche 911 Carrera S is also importantly, fitted with a manual gearbox. Serviced only with Porsche main dealers boasting six services the most recent service and inspection in December 2020. Described by the vendor as being in ‘as new condition’, this two-owner example is surely one of the best available on the market today.
