The arctic silver paintwork belies it’s age and is free from large blemishes, dents and scratches.


In addition to it’s excellent physical condition, this 911 also has numerous individual invoices and MOT certificates to confirm the mileage, the current test expires 21st February 2019 and was issued with no advisories. There is evidence of 20 individual services including the one that will be carried out prior to sale, the service history is so complete that there is physically no room within the original service book for any further entries, stamps present include 3 at Official Porsche Centre’s, 15 services have been carried out by Porsche specialists, Paragon. One by Peter Nash Specialist cars and the we shall be carrying out the 20th.  Most recently owned by Doctor Murphy, this 911 benefits from the having the usual weak points replaced, engine mounts, front and rear suspension arms, clutch, top mounts, all replaced with Genuine Porsche parts, thanks to the team at Paragon. We have upgraded the headlight bulbs to Osram Night Breakers, for enhanced night time driving.

The paintwork on this example is superb and has visibly been cherished as paint protection film has been applied to both front and rear bumpers to protect the arctic silver paintwork from marks and chipping. The front end is virtually free from stone chips which is remarkable, we have been unable to find any dents to the 911 whatsoever. Please take the time to watch the YouTube walk around video that highlights the worst of the frankly minor imperfections. Furthermore, down both sides the car is arrow straight and the entry areas to the vehicle are as they left the factory. The badges are in excellent condition and the light clusters show no signs of any moisture and are extremely clear, normally a weak point on cars of this era.. This really is an example that has been visibly looked after throughout its 20 years, a true credit to it’s former keepers.


The engine bay is impressively clean, with no evidence of leaks or previous repair. This supports the impressive service history that comes with the Carrera, having been serviced by Paragon for 14 years straight from 2001 to 2015. When provoked, all of the 300 horse power are unleashed and transferred to the rear wheels, with traction taken care of by the traction control system and limited slip differential, providing an exhilarating ride with exquisite acoustics thanks to the combination of the superb flat six engine and sports exhaust, a must for any Porsche 911.


The 18 inch alloy wheels are in average condition and we will happily refurbished these back to OEM standard for the new owner, who can chose their desired colour scheme of these stunning split rims. The wheels are shod in a matching set of Pirelli Porsche N4 rated tyres, with plenty of tread, 5mm+ on all four wheels. The front and rear brakes are in good condition and are capable of bringing the 911 to standstill with very little hesitation.


This Porsche comes supplied with its original model specific owner’s manual, service book, tool kit and spare wheel. There are itemised receipts for various works carried out totaling in excess of £8,500. There are 2 keys supplied with the Carrera and as already mentioned, we shall be servicing the 911 prior to handover.
