Mot Expiry: July 2017
Interest in Porsche's apparently immortal 911 continues apace and the various Turbo models are among the most sought after of all. This very tidy-looking 996 from 2002 has had just two owners and covered 31,988 miles from new, as verified by the stamps of 11 services from Porsche Centre Solihull and the one carried out as recently as June this year by the Porsche Centre Wolverhampton. Finished in the popular combination of Seal Grey bodywork and Black leather interior trim, 'RF02 ZYR' comes with an MOT valid to July 25 next year, and bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, flat-six engine and five-speed Tiptronic transmission that's all classed by the vendor as being 'excellent' order. Debuted at the 1999 Frankfurt Salon, the 996 Turbo was available from late 2000 to 2005. Its twin turbochargers endowed the 3.6-litre engine with an output of 415bhp, which when coupled with four-wheel drive transmission as standard equipment made for a very potent all-weather weapon indeed.
