2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Tiptronic (997)

Nice spec early 997 Gen 1; well stamped service book; 89,000 miles; driven 150 miles to the sale

Delivered by the Porsche Centre Nottingham in December 2004, its first owner certainly had their pen whiring when ticking the option boxes.

Extra cost items included Tiptronic five-speed with steering wheel controls, auto dim mirrors, a rain sensor, headlamp wash, special Porsche crest caps to the wheels, auto speed control, Porsche Active Suspension Management; a top tinted screen, Xenon headlights, a Nav DVD and Bose sound system and park assist.

The Porsche Centre Nottingham saw it a year later for service, with 19,800 miles on the clock so it certainly got a good workout in the first year of its life. There are eight serivce stamps in total, mainly though Porsche specialists with bills on file too. Its most recent service took place just last month at 88,580 miles.

Its current owner realised at this point that he had only covered some 200 miles since he bought it, hence its inclusion into the sale - an 'itch scratched' one could say.

He drove it 150 miles to us for the sale, nearly as many as has he had covered since he acquired the car in January 2020. The V5C lists 10 previous keepers.

It retains its original bookpack with handbook and service book, plus old MOTs etc which all confirm its modest overall mileage.

Looking smart in Seal grey with black leather upholstery, it presents well with just a few minor stone incursions as one would expect on a car of this age and mileage.

The 997 countered a lot of the criticism levelled at its predecessor, the 996, particularly in the area of the headlights. They offer huge value, this example being offered simply due to lack of use.
