2002 Porsche 911 Carrera (996)

Well-maintained and optioned face-lift 3.6 manual coupe; just 110,000 miles with extensive service history including all-important preventative IMS bearing replacement.

Supplied new by Lindbrook Porsche in April 2002 this face-lift 3.6 Carrera coupe is one for the enthusiast with its six-speed manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive. The car is finished in basalt-black metallic (LC9Z) with matching black full leather interior (AH) and rides on well-shod staggered five-spoke 18inch Carrera alloy wheels.

The optional equipment fitted to this car includes the rare '09991' code meaning the car was subject to the 'Sonderwunsch Programme' (now known as Porsche's 'Exclusive' scheme - whereupon the vehicle leaves the production line and heads to the 'Werk 1' area for fitment of bespoke/custom specification).

The custom options fitted in addition to what came as standard to a UK-spec car (C16) comprise: carbon fibre gearknob, carbon fibre handbrake, carbon fibre vents and dash-trim (options XNR, XNX, XPY, XJ4, X47 and X58), 2-way electric leather sports seats, and rear leather seats. Furthermore, the Bose high-end sound package was fitted along with Porsche’s PCM system (sat-nav) and climate-control. The headlining to this example is finished in brushed black suede.

From the history file one can see that the car has been properly maintained and serviced with over £4,000 spent in parts and maintenance since 2019. It also shows that in April 2016 a new IMS bearing (intermediate shaft) was installed. Most recently, stainless steel exhaust silencers were fitted to replace the original silencers that were going at the seams (aren’t we all?). These are of mild-sports specification from Top Gear and sound subtly sporting.

The history file for this 996 comprises two folders: one contains the V5C,13 old MoT certificates and a current MoT certificate valid until January 2023 (with an advisory note from the tester to ‘use the car more’!); the other folder contains invoices for all works done. There is also the owner's pack and service book showing 14 stamps, two keys, locking wheel-nut, and tool-kit, jack and brace.

This is a very well optioned and presentable Carrera 2 variant in the right colour scheme, with an interesting original factory specification and just 110,000 miles and is ready for regular use and enjoyment.
