The Porsche 992 is the eighth and current generation of the Porsche 911 which was introduced at the Porsche Experience Centre, Los Angeles on 27th November 2018. The 992 has wide rear-wheel arches which was a part of every model in the 992 lineage (a design feature limited chiefly to high performance variants of previous 911 iterations) along with 20-inch wheels on the front and 21-inch wheels at the rear. Compared to its predecessor, the 992 is 45 mm wider and uses aluminium body panels. The 992 also has a new rear bumper with larger exhaust tips than its predecessor. The front of the car is designed to mimic the appearance of an early 911 in a modern fashion. The interior also has received significant changes including a straighter dashboard which harks back to the shape of the dashboard used on the classic 911. The instrument cluster consists of two seven-inch digital displays and an analogue tachometer also a reference to the classic 911 models.

The engines have Piezo injection and a revised intake system, a wet mode feature is also introduced on the 992 which uses acoustic sensors on the wheel wells to detect wet pavement and adjusts the stability control, the rear wing position and gearbox responsiveness to keep the car stable. A Sport Chrono package is also available on all models and features an over boost function that provides increased performance for 20 seconds with the 0-62 mph acceleration times decreased by 0.2 seconds with the Sport Chrono package.

This stunning 2020 (2021 model year) 992 is presented in GT Silver with black leather heated trim. First registered on 10th November 2020, this example is well specified with electric heated seats, heated steering wheel, Sports Chrono pack, Sports exhaust with the ‘loud’ button and LED Matrix headlights. Boasting just 20,000 miles from new, in 2022 YP70 XAG was subject to an insurance loss and categorised Category S . However, on reviewing the photo of the damage this appears to have been overzealous with the damage relating to the front drivers side bumper with the airbags not having been triggered. Earlier this year the current owner and vendor commissioned Autolign Inspections, the only company in the UK who are recognised by HPI as the vehicle inspection company for the change of status of Category C, D, S & N vehicles. After a full inspection they changed the status to Condition Inspected which ensures that all repairs have been completed to a high standard and the car removed from the Category S status.

This example of the latest incarnation of the 911 is offered with a very attractive estimate and thus provides the opportunity to own and drive one of the best engineered modern day sports cars, equally adept at daily driving as it would be storming around the Nürburgring all while looking every part the £135,000 plus a new example costs.
