The Appeal


The Porsche 911 is a totally useable and practical everyday supercar and It’s also a Porsche 911, which is one of the greatest sport cars that has ever been built with a reputation and appeal that is second to none.

The 997 Carrera 2S has the 3.8 litre engine so there’s plenty of legendary Porsche performance available and the wide-bodied look, with the up-rated brakes and suspension coupled with the 6 speed manual gearbox, has got to be one of the more desirable Porsche 911 models from recent years, and a fabulous car to own and drive.

The History and Paperwork


  • First registered in 2005
  • Full service history with main dealers and specialists
  • V5 on its way from the DVLA following removal of personal plate which is not included in the sale
  • MOT expires 03/03/2023
  • One key
  • Service book and driver's manuals
  • Toolkit and compressor

Purchased from an avid Porsche enthusiast around 3 years the present owner used the car as his daily driver until recently when it has been used occasionally at weekends, and is now up for auction due to a lack of time to drive and enjoy it.

The Interior 


  • Full ‘extended’ leather black interior
  • Sunroof and climate control
  • Electric windows and memory sports seats
  • Alcantara headlining
  • BOSE Sound system with Bluetooth upgrade and 6-cd changer
  • Rear parking sensors

The full black leather interior surprisingly spacious, and the quality and ergonomic design and layout of the cabin and instruments remind you that this has all been designed and built by Porsche. 

The leather extends to the dashboard and door panels and the steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake have all been trimmed in alcantara for that full racing feel, using yellow as a detail colour to match the seatbelts.

Everything is very well presented and in excellent condition throughout the interior with little or no signs of any wear or aging anywhere.

The Exterior


  • Finished in Speed Yellow
  • Excellent original Porsche wheels with 4 new Michelin Supersport tyres
  • Bi-Xenon headlights with headlamp wash
  • Red brake callipers
  • Very good condition and presentation

The vibrant Speed Yellow paintwork is in excellent condition apart from two very small and insignificant scratches just behind the driver’s door and on the passenger door mirror but there’s no stone chips and dings or small dents or paint imperfections anywhere.

The original wheels are in fine shape and have yellow rim guards fitted to keep them looking that way and all have new Michelin Supersport tyres. 

The car has been fitted with custom LED rear lights but the original units are included in the sale should this require changing back to the original ones.

The Mechanics


  • Full service history
  • Stainless sports exhaust system
  • Recently serviced only 1,000 miles ago
  • Very well cared for example

One look around the car and a check in the engine bay reveals a very well maintained and looked after car and the car has had, in addition to its recent service, new coolant pipes, new water pump and alternator, RS engine mounts fitted and a set of tyres.

The car drives very well indeed and holds the road as you’d expect from a Porsche 911. Everything works as it should and overall this is a very nice example of a great driver’s car that is ready to hit the road.

Summary


The 3.8 engine with six-speed manual gearbox and the Sport Chrono Package option and PASM keeping everything in check make this a very useable and desirable modern day classic Porsche 911.

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

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 5-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 £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

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.
