There are, if I’m honest, quite a few Porsche 997s for sale at the moment. However, look closely at many of them and they’re a disappointment. Many 997s were bought as everyday cars and have been treated as such – parking dents, chips, scruffy interiors, high mileage, all spoil what should be a lovely car. Not so this 2007 Carrera S. With just 17,900 miles on the clock, it’s in near-new condition, and certainly drives like a new car. It has a great specification, too, including heated seats (a must in this weather!) and the Bose sound upgrade. It was […]
I’m lucky enough to have two very special – and rare – Porsches in stock at the moment. A 1997 993 Carrera S and a 1998 993 Carrera 4S. Both boast the wide Turbo bodyshell and look simply wonderful.

The light today was perfect for it, too – beautiful! 🙂 Click here for full details of this Porsche.
I’ve just taken delivery of a Porsche 993 Carrera S.

A winning combination in anyone’s book. However, for me the icing on the cake is the Carrera S’s engine lid. Unique to this model, the vents is split by a central vertical spine that harks right back to the appearance of thePorsche 356.
