2006 Porsche 997 Carrera


Finished in Basalt Black Metallic with 19-inch Carrera S wheels, this is a great looking Porsche 997 Carrera with manual transmission.

The interior is full black leather with the rare option of fully electric 12-way seats with lumber adjustment and driver’s memory. Other options include, alloy gearknob, PCM satnav, cruise control, Bose sound package, sunroof, Park Assist, rear wiper, PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management), PSM, and a Sports exhaust.

The last owner bought the car in 2015 after having it inspected by Porsche specialist, Peter Morgan – the inspection is included in the sale. He then spent some £5000 putting right issues flagged up in the report, including new coolant hoses, new clutch and flywheel, RMS and IMS replacement, new water pump, new front brake discs and pads, plus various other jobs. It was serviced again, in accordance with the schedule, in 2017, Then, in May 2019, the Porsche had another £3000 spent on a service, transmission oil change, brake calliper refurbish, new brake lines and other work. Add to this, a very well documented service history, this is an incredibly well-sorted example of a Porsche 997 Carrera.

The car was featured in GT Porsche magazine in 2015 in a feature written, coincidentally, by our own Philip Raby!
