Porsche 996

car description

Cherished 53,000-mile, immaculate 996 with all consumables and weak spots replaced and/or uprated where necessary. No expense spared!

Here's the list of replacements, all within the last 2000 miles:

High-quality clutch kit
Lightweight flywheel
Uprated IMS bearing (eliminating the one weakness of the 3.6 engine)
Oil separator
Rear main oil seal (RMS)
Camshaft seal

Top-quality Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs (improved ride, handling and longevity)
Suspension arms and bushes
Drop links
Top mounts
Brake discs and pads all-round
Brake lines and braided hoses
Brake fluid

Air-con radiators and hoses
Air-con recharged

Full service and inspection. All work carried out by the excellent RPM Technik

Original factory-option GT3 alloys refurbished

This is the perfect specification 996 – metallic black with black leather interior, electric seats, electric tilt-and-slide sunroof, parking sensors, optional Bose stereo system, pre-fibre optic stereo and satnav system (easier to upgrade than later 996 system).

Immaculate except for a few tiny blemishes – light scratch on lower edge of front spoiler, light scratch on edge of one headlight, tiny paint defect on one door.

Interior came with original optional phone (great period accessory) though can be replaced with standard panel (included with car). A few tiny scratches on interior door handle and gearknob.

This is a superb car, one of the last great analogue Porsches, hugely undervalued at the moment (just look at the price of the preceeding 993s) and actually faster, lighter and better handling than any previous 911.

This is one of the best 996s in the UK. I know because I've seen many of them! Don't be tempted by a cheap 996 because it WILL need clutch, suspension etc – and the IMS bearing could fail at any time, destroying the engine.

MOT until 15 April 2019.
