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 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.
Supplied new via Porsche Centre Silverstone on New Years’ Day 2006, this ‘C16’ 997 is fitted with the 3596cc flat-six engine allied to the five-speed automatic transmission, the Porsche is finished in Cobalt Blue with Black leather interior upholstery. Having just five former keepers from new, ‘KX55 PZM’ has covered approximately 107,234 miles from new (at time of consignment). A non-sunroof model, ‘KX55 PZM’ was specified from new with optional extras including headlamp washers, heated Sports front seats, Sport Design alloy wheels, rear wiper, Tiptronic S paddle steering wheel, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Litronic headlights, parking sensors and sat-navigation package.
Offered with the full book pack with Porsche wallet, including the original stamped service book which displays nine service stamps (eight from main dealers and specialists) as well as five brake fluid changes stamps and three long-life condition report stamps. Most recently serviced in April 2021 at 106,655 miles, the 911 is accompanied by several previous invoices relating to work completed with D&G Porsche Specialists to over £6,000 worth of expenditure since 2018. Also benefitting from replacement Eibach Springs, ‘KX55 PZM’ has a current V5C.
