The driving experience of linking corners whilst sitting behind the wheel of a Porsche is like nothing else on earth. The Stuttgart firm’s flagship model, the 911, has evolved over the years reaching new heights of performance and quality each time. The 997-series allied all the technological improvements of its 996-series predecessor; a lighter/stiffer bodyshell, better suspension, four-valve cylinder heads and a superior HVAC system. Available in Carrera or Carrera S guises when launched, the latter boasted a more powerful 3.8 litre engine, sports exhaust, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and 19” wheels as standard. The ‘S’ also had Xenon headlights, bigger brakes and red callipers to visually set them apart.
This is extremely well presented C2S arrives from just one family owner, father then son, in an extremely attractive colour combination of metallic black paintwork with a black leather interior. The hardtop roof matches the bodywork and the black mohair soft-top is in excellent order. There are alloy wheels all round and, as you would expect, some light day-to-day scuffing and all shod with Michelin Pilot Sport’s tyres. The comprehensive history includes numerous service invoices including one this May totalling over £4,000 and a fresh, one-year MoT test certificate. The tombstone seats are electric and combine with the satellite navigation system and Bose sound system to form a completely sound-proof environment with roof on or fun-in-sun, top-down motoring with the soft-top stowed..
