First registered on 22 November 2007, this 911 has just three previous keepers on the V5C, with the most recent private owner having acquired it in June 2014. The car is now offered for sale by the trade.
For its age and mileage, this 997 Turbo Cabriolet presents in good condition. There is no known previous damage to any of the panels, and its Basalt Black finish still looks smart. The vendor reports some small stone chips around the front end commensurate with the mileage, plus a larger stone chip on the bonnet, and a fingernail-sized scuff on the nearside rear wheel arch. All of the body trims appear to be present and correct. The car rides on the original 19-inch alloys, which have minor scuffing to one rim, but which are otherwise in very good order.
The interior of this 911 presents in excellent condition overall, with its black leather upholstery still in very good order, and arguably belying the mileage. There is slight creasing to the driver’s seat bolsters, but no heavy wear or discolouration. It is equipped with the electrically adjustable and heated hard-shell sport seats, climate control, cruise control, and the Bose surround sound system. The car was also specified with white-faced instrument gauges, and with the Porsche emblem embossed on the headrests. There are no known faults, and no warning lights on the dashboard.
Regularly maintained from new, its last workshop visit was in October 2019 at 87,661 miles, when technicians at Zentrum Porsche carried out a minor service. Prior to this, it was also seen and serviced by Zentrum in November 2017 at 74,687 miles – which included new spark plugs – and in September 2016 at 54,541 miles. The auxiliary drive belt was last renewed in November 2013 at 18,193 miles.
The car is undergoing an MOT test during the early stages of the auction, so that it will be sold with a fresh 12-month certificate ready for handover to the next owner. This description will be updated with the date, mileage and full result of the test in due course.
All of the tyres are Porsche N-rated Michelin Pilot Sport items. The front tyres were fitted in 2019 and have around 5mm of tread remaining, while the rear tyres are dated to 2018 and have approximately 4mm of tread.
Accompanying the car is the complete original book pack, including the stamped maintenance record. A summary of the service history is included below.
This Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet is a superb all-weather supercar, which has been well maintained by main dealers and marque specialists. Despite being a convertible, it is perfectly usable all year round, as a refined, powerful and well-appointed daily driver if desired. Far from being a low-mileage garage queen, this car has been driven and enjoyed – but kept in good order – and is now ready for many more miles with another enthusiast owner.
