2002 Porsche 996 911 Carrera 2 Tiptronic 3.6

Highlights

  • Very well maintained with FSH 
  • Just two registered keepers 
  • Well specified and smart-looking 996 
  • Revised car with later 3.6litre 315bhp engine 
  • Long MOT to December 2024 with no advisories 

The Appeal 

In 2002 Porsche improved an already compelling package. The revised 996 was more powerful and more usable. Perhaps it is no surprise that so many of these well regarded, reliable cars remain as distinctive daily drivers.
Including this one. Its regular use means it comes to market with very good service history - the book has 18 service stamps with extra work detailed in invoices - and a raft of long life checks, brake fluid changes and airbag checks. 
Classically finished in silver over black it is usefully equipped with a long, advisory-free MOT to December 2024. This well kept car looks ready for its third keeper in 22 years.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
