1999 Porsche 996 Carrera
This 1999 Porsche 996 Carrera Tiptronic is an eye-catching car, finished in Special Order Oak Green Metallic with a complementing full Savannah leather interior and Sport Design 2 18-inch alloy wheels. It is in superb condition, inside and out.
The Porsche benefits from having had a huge amount of work done to it in the last year, with bills amounting to over £5000. Items of note including an uprated IMS bearing, rear main seal, stainless steel sports exhaust (which sounds wonderful), new rear brake discs and pads, front suspension overhaul, transmission oil service, plus a major service, brake fluid change, and a myriad of other jobs, which are all documented. It’s also just had new Pirelli PZero rear tyres fitted, to match the fronts. It really is an astonishingly well-sorted car, and the previous history is also very good, with just four owners from new. It’s exactly the sort of 996 we like to see and having had so much spent on it makes it a very attractive purchase.
The interior is a sumptuous place to be, with the Savannah (which extends to the headlining) giving a luxurious and airy feel. A rare option (which we’ve not seen before) is the No Smoking Package which replaces the ashtray between the seats with a handy oddments tray and the cigarette lighter with a neat cap over the 12-volt socket. The car also benefits from a sunroof, Park Assist, Headlamp Cleaning Unit, rear wiper, Traction Control and the original CDR22 radio and CD player. It even has the original Porsche cupholders which clip onto the air vents.
