Porsche 911 (997) Sport Classic in Sport Classic Grey!

Design inspired by ’73 Carrera RS 2.7, limited-edition Sport Classic No.129/250 in fabulous condition.

With the design paying homage to the iconic 1973 Carrera RS 2.7 and a limited production run of just 250 examples, such was the demand for this fabulous 911 that Porsche filled the order book within 48 hours of the official release. The impressive specification of these exclusive 911s added gravitas to the demand as the factory options list makes for a true drivers car.

Details

  • UK supplied (C-16) right-hand drive 911 Sport Classic #129/250 with just 4,122 miles from new
  • Unique specification includes; Sport Classic Grey paintwork with Expresso exclusive interior, Fuchs wheels, ducktail and double-bubble roof
  • A stunning example offered from a private collection with low mileage supported by a full OPC service history
  • Accompanied by original Porsche book-pack, spare keys, tracker fobs, smart charger and fitted Sport Classic car cover
  • Once owned by a prominent celebrity, rarely do these highly collectable 911s with a factory ultimate specification come to market

Based on the 997 Carrera 4S widebody with a ‘double-bubble’ roof, all the cars were finished in a bespoke Sport Classic Grey finish. Design elements from the RS 2.7 include a ‘duck-tail’ rear spoiler and Fuchs five-blade alloys with a bespoke interior finish in Expresso Brown leather with woven leather and fabric seat and door inserts. Mechanically the Sport Classic benefits from a specially modified 3,800cc, four-cam, four-valve, normally aspirated and direct-injected engine. This is aided by a ‘Power Kit’ that includes ported and polished combustion chambers, special resonance intake manifolding that helps maintain peak power throughout the rev range, and a re-mapped ECU. A custom exhaust system and carbon fibre airbox also help raise output to 408bhp and the power is delivered through a 6-speed manual gearbox with limited-slip differential. Other desirable options included as standard were the PCCB ceramic brakes and PASM sports suspension.

Offered here directly from a private collection of carefully sourced special cars is Sport Classic number 129/250 which to date has covered just 4,122 miles. This low mileage is supported by a full Porsche main agent service history, the most recent at Porsche Centre Leeds, August 2020 indicating 4,118 with a full inspection report on file. This beautifully well-preserved example is supplied with the original Porsche book-pack, spare keys, tracker fobs, smart charger and fitted Sport Classic car cover.

This collectable modern classic Porsche was once the property of a prominent young celebrity and the ‘irresistible’ specification just screams ‘take me home’. Rarely do these Sport Classics come to market in such fine order and values are tipped to go only in ‘One Direction’.
