EXTERIOR
Finished in Arctic Silver this example sits in excellent condition considering its mileage, with no fading or corrosion, the Metallic Silver finish still sparkles in the light. Pleasingly the wide arches are damage free, there are some stone small stone chips across the front of the car however the vehicle has benefited from a G-Techniq Ceramic Paint Coating which has kept any marks to a minimum.

All of the plastic trims and rubber seals are free from the normal fading and remain soft to the touch whilst the inner arches and underside are in good order with no damage or any signs of corrosion.

The interior presents very well, with the only signs of wear showing on the gear stick, the rest of the cabin sits in remarkable condition.

The automatic climate control with air conditioning, functions as it should. This was refurbished in April this year and combined with the fully functional electric sunroof allows flexibility come rain or shine.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 996 marked a major step for Porsche with its Flat 6 engine utilising water cooling allowing its design to improve reliability and performance. The Turbo did just that churning out 415 BHP it delivered a good thump of boost and exhilarating power to the redline.

The all wheel drive system allows as much of this to put to the tarmac, With huge grip it makes the 996 Turbo feel approachable despite its power. The 6-speed manual gear box is a joy to operate, providing slick and precise changes.

Having covered just 1,000 miles having a full service and a full service history prior to this the car is in good health. The history file, complete with MOT paperwork all the way back to 2005, outlines the levels of care and attention taken in the maintenance of this Porsche.
