1999 Porsche 996 Carrera Cabriolet


This Porsche 996 Carrera Cabriolet looks wonderful with its rare Ocean Blue Metallic paintwork. Ocean Blue is slightly brighter than the more common Midnight Blue and it really pings in the sunshine. It is complemented by a blue hood and a full Metropole Blue leather interior.

The other great thing about this Porsche is its superb service history. It has a stamped service book plus invoices dating back to 2005, showing that it has been well maintained. Unusually, the recent services have been with an Official Porsche Centre, with the last service by them in June 2020 at 82,902 miles. New tyres were fitted the previous year and the alignment set. We have since overhauled the climate control system, resprayed the bonnet and front bumper to eliminate the inevitable stone chips, and had the car professionally detailed. A Dansk exhaust system gives the Porsche a throaty yet subtle engine note, but in every other way the car remains original, right down to the Porsche CDR22 radio/CD unit and the factory wind deflector.

If you are unable to get to us, please get in touch as we offer a remote buying service. We can first make a personalised video or organise a conference call to show you around one of our cars and covering all aspects you want to see. We can even take the car for a drive as you watch. If you like the car, you pay for it and we shall deliver it to you free of charge (within 100 miles of our Chichester base; longer distances are charged at cost). We are based on the south coast of England, nestled between the South Downs and Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s a lovely area to visit and you are still very welcome to come and view our stock or just have a chat about cars!

Philip Raby Specialist Cars is refreshingly different. We like to build a friendly relationship with customers; before, during and after you buy from us. You won’t get a hard sell but you will get friendly and professional advice to ensure that we find exactly the right car for you. We have sold hundreds of Porsches and other specialist cars and have a vast experience to share with you.

Each car we sell goes through a thorough mechanical inspection and any faults found put right before sale. This ensures that your new car is ready for you to enjoy from day one, without you having to worry about a thing. In the unlikely event you have a problem, we include a six-month warranty underwritten by us. We stand by this warranty so, if you have any issue with your Porsche, wherever you are in the UK, we will work with you to put things right, without any quibble or fuss. So do please get in touch for a chat and to arrange a visit or a live video. Part exchange and finance available – please click the Finance button below for details.

Philip Raby says: “It’s a treat to find a 996 that has been so well looked after, and we have invested more time and money into ensuring this one is spot-on for the next owner to enjoy.”
