Due to the company registration "Piëch LG GmbH", the personal first owner cannot be clearly identified. The driver was possibly the eldest son of Mr. Ferdinand Karl Piëch (CEO of VW GmbH / major auctioneer of Porsche Automobil Holding and grandson of Ferdinand Porsche). Two of his thirteen children were given the first name of their father, Ferdinand Karl Piëch. The Piëch LG GmbH is a company which is run by the Piëch family, especially the Piëch LG GmbH is also known under the name Piëch Lebensmittelgesellschaft GmbH, which operates various shops and delicatessen stores in the center of Stuttgart.
The second and last entry in the vehicle letter is that of a doctor of medicine who took over the vehicle in November 2008 and drove it until 2020.
This turbo, in the exterior color black (L041) and the interior color black, is one of the last 911s, which was delivered with the legendary Hans Mezger engine. It is driven with the classic and coveted 6-speed manual transmission. This 997 Turbo also has the Sport Chrono Plus package, which briefly increases the engine output, in terms of torque. In addition, the shock absorbers can be adjusted in terms of their hardness. Various extended real leather items, all in black, were also ordered at an additional cost. These include the leather-covered navigation system, the Bose box cover, the complete headliner including the interior mirror and interior mirror mount, as well as the steering wheel mount, fuse box cover in the driver's footwell, telephone receiver incl. Mount and much more. The entire dashboard including the side covers of the dashboard are also covered with leather. The very lavish equipment is rounded off with the PCCB (Porsche Composite Ceramic Brakes) brake system.
The two original Porsche radio keys as well as the complete on-board folder including the original checkbook are of course part of this auction.
The equipment list broken down by Porsche is structured as follows:
To the state
The general condition of the vehicle can be rated as very good. Due to the different individual assessments, reference is made to the pictures in this ad.
Heavy wear and tear cannot really be identified on the seat cheeks or in the interior. Wear from loading and unloading various objects can only be seen on the seat backrests of the driver's seat and the front passenger seat.
Externally, the car is largely scratch-free, and there are no external dents to be seen. Of course, stone chips, especially in the front area, could not be avoided in this vehicle either.
The history can be completely documented with the original checkbook. A repair invoice, which also shows a damage in 2011 at KM stand 26,676, is also available. The repair costs at the Porsche Center in Göppingen totaled 63,000 euros in 2011. The vehicle suffered no frame damage, and no airbags were deployed. The 997 was measured and the sensitive PCCB brakes checked and the sheet metal damage restored to perfection. A copy of the detailed repair invoice is enclosed with the documents and contains a careful listing of all work. The vehicle was also repainted in the original color in various places by the Porsche Center, which is reflected in the currently good paint condition. The largest repair items on the repair bill were the rims and the engine compartment lid including the rear spoiler. Both items were completely re-acquired with the 2011 invoice.
All entries in the checkbook were made by official Porsche centers, all in Germany. The current last entry was in February 2020 with a KM stand of 73,254. It was about the small maintenance including a brake fluid change. The Pirelli summer tires with Porsche "N" identification were re-fitted in 09/2020 and have run 0 KM.
In addition to the on-board documents and the checkbook, there are various TÜV reports that are attached to the documents.
