The sixth generation of the Porsche 911 was dubbed the 997 and introduced in 2005. It retained the previous model’s basic profile but drew on the 993 for detailing. In addition, the new headlights reverted to the original bug-eye design. The interior was similarly revised, with strong links to the earlier 911 interiors while at the same time looking fresh and modern. Initially, two versions of the 977 were introduced, the rear-wheel-drive Carrera and Carrera S. In late 2005 Porsche introduced the four-wheel drive versions of the 997, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S which were announced as 2006 models. The 997 remain a worthy model of one of the most celebrated sports cars ever produced and also received mostly positive reviews from the worldwide motoring press, with Jeremy Clarkson, a known detractor of Porsche cars, noting that the 997 will "make love to your fingertips and stir your soul."
This lovely Porsche 997 Carrera 2S, fitted with the desirable six-speed manual gearbox, was supplied new by Porsche Reading in October 2007. Since then, it has had three owners and has only covered 55,000 miles. The car has a full-service history with seven stamps in the service book, the first six from Porsche Guildford dated 30/9/09, 6/10/11, 1/10/13, 4/9/15, 9/3/17 and 13/3/19 the last service was carried out by Porsche specialist Eporsch on 25th April 2022. Recently the car has had the clutch replaced. It comes with a high specification including Sat Nav, Bose sound system, electric heated seats, Porsche stability management and Porsche active suspension management. Finished in grey with black leather interior this Carrera 2S is supplied with a V5 registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in April 2023 and a complete handbook pack containing operation manuals and the stamped service book. The terrific 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.
