Chassis No: WP0ZZZ99Z6S700592
MOT: April 2024
Introduced in 2004, the 997-series of Porsche’s iconic 911 allied all the technological improvements of its 996-series predecessor – a lighter/stiffer bodyshell, better suspension/brakes, four-valve cylinder heads and a superior HVAC system – to more classical styling. Available in Carrera or Carrera S guises when launched, the former allied a 3.6 litre engine (rated at 321bhp/273lbft) to either a six-speed manual or five-speed Tiptronic transmission. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds and 178mph, it may have been outgunned by some of its siblings, but arguably offered the sweetest driving experience. Better built and better looking than a 996 and smaller and more agile than a 991 (or current 992), great examples of the 997 cars are becoming increasingly collectible.
Manufactured in 2005 and supplied new to RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland) on 28th October that year by Porsche Centre Glasgow, this particular example was retained by the bank until 2009 when it entered the current ownership. Thus, it has had just two keepers (only one of whom is private) from new. The vendor is very enthusiastic about 911s and has well cared for the car, with him only parting with it now to own a later generation example. Having covered a warranted 37,000 miles from new, the Porsche was specified from the factory with electric and heated front seats, parking system, 19-inch Carrera Classic alloy wheels, sunroof, auto-dimming interior/exterior mirrors, and a rain sensor.
Presented in the timeless colour combination of Silver with Black leather interior upholstery, the 911 is offered with documented service history in the service book with nine stamps from Porsche main dealers and specialists, with the most recent completed earlier this year at 35,718 miles by Motortune Shotts Porsche specialists. Offered with a history file that includes the book pack with the aforementioned service book, numerous previous MOT certificates, a current MOT certificate with no advisories until April 2024, and a V5C document. Rated as ‘very good’ throughout (engine, gearbox, bodywork, paintwork, electrics, and interior trim), this is a notably nice and well cared for example.
