  • Very high specification 911 Carrera, with PASM, PCM, heated electric memory seats and more
  • Owned by an historic F1 engineer and well looked after in its 4-year current ownership
  • Impressive history file

Introduced in 2004, the 997-series of Porsche's iconic 911 represented a significant advancement over its predecessor, the 996-series. This iteration incorporated notable technological enhancements, including a lighter and stiffer bodyshell, improved suspension and brakes, upgraded four-valve cylinder heads, and an enhanced HVAC system. In terms of design, the 997-series took a more classical approach, combining timeless styling elements with modern aesthetics. At its launch, the 997 was available in Carrera or Carrera S variants. The Carrera model featured a 3.6-litre engine producing 321bhp and 273 lb-ft of torque, mated to a choice of either a six-speed manual or a five-speed Tiptronic transmission. With impressive performance figures, including a 0-60mph time of 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 178mph, the 997 Carrera offered a thrilling driving experience. Furthermore, its superior build quality, refined aesthetics, and agile nature positioned it as a desirable choice, making well-preserved examples of the 997 increasingly sought after by collectors.

In current ownership since April 2019 by an historic race car engineer with experience running historic F1 cars, this particular 911 is presented in the attractive combination of Seal Grey with Basalt Black leather interior and boasts an impressive specification including 19’’ Porsche Design alloys, aftermarket Aero spoiler (Original included), privacy glass, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche Communications management with navigation, heated, electric seats with 3x memory settings, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, sliding sunroof, Alcantara headlining and much more.

With the odometer displaying c.94,256 miles at time of consignment and an MOT valid until 16 May 2024 with no advisories, this particular example has been looked after in current ownership by Porsche specialists EMS Ltd and ADH Porsche. Notable works include a replacement gearbox contact board with ADH in September 2019 at £665.76, replacement front shock absorbers and steering rack in July 2019 at £1,600, a replacement starter motor in June 2019 at £204 and replacement front coffin and control arms in that same month at a cost of £440.

With 8 stamps in the service book and the most recent on 29 March 2022 with EMS Ltd, this Porsche comes with an impressive history file containing a large collection of invoices and nearly every MOT since 2009. The original Porsche book pack is also included and contains a significant number of booklets, including the Inspection Certificate, various PCM booklets, driver’s manuals, quick reference guides, Porsche Assistance, Centres and repairers booklets, warranty booklets, Porsche Club GB booklets, lifetime guarantee booklets and of course the Service booklets, manual and so on. 2x keys are included with the vehicle and the V5C document which displays ‘6’ former keepers.
