The Appeal

Buying a new 996 must have been a decision-making nightmare, such was the raft of options and opportunities to bespoke.
The first owner of this tidy 911 appears to have avoided those dilemmas by ticking most of the key boxes. So it is a Carrera with the desirable AWD system, Tiptronic box and convertible with hard top versatility. Then there is the colour scheme - lovely Ocean Blue over Savannah leather. 
In the years since it has been carefully maintained, including significant work in September 2023 to the engine. The all-important IMS and RMS bearings were replaced at this time. The Tiptronic box has also been recently rebuilt. 
A recent engine light means that we would advise trailering this car on purchase. Once fixed this looks like a well loved and hugely entertaining addition to any driveway.
