An evolutionary improvement over the 996 range, Porsche’s 997 911 was introduced in 2004 and was in fact 80% new although the overall appearance was reassuringly little changed despite being slightly shorter and wider than the preceding model. It was, however, a huge leap forward in terms of quality, capability and driving enjoyment. Initially available in 3.6-litre and 3.8-litre coupe form, the S models received the larger engine developing some 350bhp. Purists were pleased to see a return to round headlamps whilst the extended arches housing larger alloys gave the car a meaningful presence on the road.
This automatic Tiptronic example with steering wheel controls is finished in Seal Grey with grey leather interior and benefits from navigation system, radio CD and electric memory seats. Registering some 57,800 miles, the vendor informs us it has just had a major service including oil and filter, air filter, cabin filter and plugs. With just three former keepers, it is said to drive “brilliantly”. Offered with handbooks and service book it comes with a current MoT to May 2020.
PLEASE NOTE: This Lot has just had a new transmission oil cooler.
