  • In current ownership the last 23 years
  • Comprehensive history file

Historically, and thus far, the most important Porsche model has been the 1964-introduced 911, which was to remain in production in much the same form for the next 30 years, albeit progressively updated and modified. With a basically similar layout to the 356, the new 911 was built on a steel platform chassis with suspension by torsion bars, Macpherson struts at the front and trailing arms at the rear. The first version of the 911 was powered by an air-cooled 2-litre, horizontally opposed six with 5-speed box first used on the 904 competition coupe. Capacity increased, first to 2.4, then 2.7-litres, whilst from 1984, the capacity of the legendary Porsche motor was increased from 3.0 to 3.2-litres and the SC 911 became the 911 Carrera.

First delivered on March 13, 1987, as a demonstrator vehicle for Meltin Concessionaires in Henley-on-Thames, 'PIB 3076' showcased an attractive combination of Schwartz (Black) exterior with a contrasting Burgundy interior. During its early years, the car changed hands in various locations, including Manchester, Essex, Shropshire, and Hertfordshire, until it was eventually purchased by the current owner in April 2000. Over the span of 10 years, 'PIB 3076' was actively used and well-maintained, primarily by Porsche Centre Cambridge until it was put into storage in 2010.

After a period of being off the road, the vendor decided to have the car reconditioned and entrusted Porsche Centre Cambridge with the task in November 2022. Extensive work was carried out, including an engine overhaul, brake system overhaul, miscellaneous wiring repairs, and more, totalling £10,543. Additional work was undertaken in May 2023, which involved removing the engine once again for a clutch inspection. The clutch cover, slave cylinder, and guide tube were replaced, along with the oil cooler, pipes, and other miscellaneous items, amounting to £1,584. Now displaying 106,446 miles on the odometer, this Porsche under its current ownership of 23 years, reportedly has not been painted and presents in largely original condition.

Included with the vehicle is an impressive history file, which includes the original Porsche bookpack containing the Drive Assured booklet, driver's manual, alarm systems booklet, radio manual, Porsche service booklet, and maintenance booklet with 25 stamps, the most recent being in 2004 at 105,399 miles. Furthermore, a comprehensive collection of invoices for servicing and other works dating back to 1991, totalling over £18,600, is included. The documentation also comprises Porsche Approved documents from 1989 and a new vehicle letter from Porsche from 1987. Accompanying the MOT certificate, valid until May 15, 2024, is an extensive collection of MOTs covering nearly every year from 1993 to the period of storage in 2010. The V5C document is also provided, displaying 11 former keepers.
