Mot Expiry: Jan 2006
This 1983-manufactured Porsche, a right-hand drive 911 Carrera, is a late entry and therefore the details were not received by us in time for the press day and inclusion in our catalogue. The vendor tells us that the two-door fixed head was a prize in a December edition of the 5th Gear motoring programme on Channel Five. The coupe was serviced and MOTd, he says, before he took delivery in February. Due to the owner's disability, however, which makes an automatic-change to be preferable, the car is reluctantly being sold here today.
In-car entertainment is well taken care of by a face-off Sony MDX-C7900R radio/mini disc unit. With the car is a folder full of history with receipts going back to April 1988 and former MOT certificates to 1998. Also fitted are electrically-operated windows and aerial as well as a Clifford immobiliser.
The chassis is said to be good, the body panels and cream paintwork fair, the genuine Fuch alloys and maroon cloth interior good, and the 3164cc flat-six motor, five-speed manual transmission and electrical equipment all reportedly in good order. The latest MOT certificate will be valid until the end of next January, while the 92,000 mileage when entered for the sale is believed by the vendor to be the genuine total mileage from new.
