|Odometer reading||45,910 miles|
|Estimate||£24,000 - £28,000|
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.
This nice low mileage example is presented in black with black leather interior and a black electrically operated hood. It comes with a large book pack with some servicing invoices and was last inspected in July 2021 when a major service was carried out, replacing cambelts, plugs, filters, oil pump, tandem vac and successful bore scope was carried out. Its exhaust system was replaced this year and its roof operation and micro switch were replaced, the air conditioning was re-gassed and the bonnet struts were replaced. Its 3.8 litre six-cylinder engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox and it comes with satellite navigation and air conditioning and has a fresh MoT test certificate. With a very reasonable reserve price, this iconic Porsche sports car offers everything one would expect.
