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 997 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 remains 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."

The best ‘all-rounder’ in the 997 line up, this Carrera 4S comes with the desirable six-speed manual gearbox mated to the 3.8 litre flat six engine. A UK supplied C16 car, it is well optioned with heated leather two-way electric front seats, leather rear seats, PCM module, Euro navigation, BOSE sound system and 19” Sport Design wheels. Presented in probably the best colour combination of Midnight Blue with blue interior, the car has led a pampered life. Out of the six main service stamps, four are from Porsche main dealers and the other two are from renowned Porsche specialist JAZ Porsche Ltd. Whilst the last official service was carried out in June 2018 at JAZ, they also replaced the roof mechanism in March of this year. Since 2018 the car has been maintained by the Vendor’s in-house mechanic who maintains all his collection. The vendor has noticed that the air conditioning isn’t working, but other than that, he reports the car to run and drive very well indeed.

Supplied with a V5C registration document, book pack and service record from JAZ Porsche Ltd. Great performance and stunning looks combined, make this model still the one to have. Consigned by Will Penrose.
