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 latter boasted a more powerful 3.8 litre engine (rated at 350bhp/295lbft), sports exhaust, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and 19-inch wheels as standard. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds and 182mph, it soon became a driver’s favourite. Better built and better looking than a 996 and smaller and more agile than a 991 (or current 992), great examples of 997 gearbox cars are becoming increasingly collectible.
This desirable C16 (UK-supplied) example was delivered on the 23rd of June 2006 through Porsche Centre Guildford. Fitted with the aforementioned 3824cc flat-six engine with the Tiptronic transmission, the 911 is finished in Seal Grey Metallic paintwork with Black full-leather interior upholstery. Having covered just 78,470 miles from new (at time of consignment), the Porsche rides on Fuchs style alloy wheels in complementary Black finish with a Silver rim.
Specified from new with optional extras including Porsche branded stainless steel exhaust system and kickplates, multi-function steering wheel, sports heated seats, cruise control, tinted windscreen and Tiptronic S multi-function steering wheel, this Porsche cost some £67,150 when new. Subject to approximately £12,500 worth of expenditure since 2015, the 2S has benefitted from a new starter motor and brake fettling in 2019; an engine wiring loom, alternator and battery in 2021 and a new water pump, thermostat and housing, and door locks in 2022. The 911 is offered with a history file which includes the original book pack with stamped service book displaying ten entries (all from main dealers and specialists, with the most recent service by Addison Autotech Porsche specialists in 2022 at 76,114 miles) as well as a large collection of invoices, previous MOT certificates, sundry paperwork, current V5C and two keys.
