2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 2

Highlights

  • Extensive history file with main dealer, Porsche specialists, and local independent garage maintenance
  • Stored as part of a small classic car collection
  • Recently replaced rear tyres, coolant pipes, and water pump
  • MOT valid until March 2025

The Appeal


After the step change of the Porsche 996, the 997 was arguably the car to bring back the purists. Certainly, the water-cooled element was there to stay, but but the car brought back those signature round headlights that so many had mourned the loss of, and released what, in many respects, was a far more 'traditionally Porsche' car in terms of aesthetics.

This fine 2004 example has been very clearly cared for, evidenced by its extensive service history. There's plenty of time left on the MOT, and the water pump has recently been replaced for the new owner's piece of mind. If you fancy a classy yet still highly up-to-date sports car, a 997 is a safe bet - and we've no doubt that this one will tick all of the boxes.

Safe, secure payment process

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.
