2006 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet 997 3.6 Manual For Sale
2006 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet 997 3.6 Manual – Low Mileage
This is a unique opportunity to invest in a very low mileage Porsche 997 Carrera 2 Cabriolet with full Porsche service history.
The car is in excellent condition and has covered just 23600 miles from new.
Finished in Seal Grey Metallic with a Black Mohair Hood and Full Black Leather, the specification of this superb 325 bhp high performance 2+2 convertible includes: Automatic Air Conditioning, Electric Windows/Mirrors, Alarm/Central Locking, PCM Satellite Navigation, Electric Seats, Electrically Folding Roof, 3-Spoke Leather Steering Wheel, Stainless Steel ‘Carrera’ Door Tread Plates, Carbon Gear Knob / H/Brake Handle, Rear Parking Sensors, PSM, Completely Refurbished (un-marked/zero mileage) Carrera Alloy Wheels with Matching Continental SportContact Tyres, Sound System with RDS Radio, Front Loading CD Player & 5-Disc CD Auto-Changer, USB Port, Wind Deflector & Fitted Porsche Carpet Mats.
The car cost over £76k when new and has had only 3 previous owners. It has been fully maintained by Porsche, with a Complete Service History, having been Serviced at: 4246, 7857, 13656, 16974, 19913 and most recently 22209 Miles. The Brake Fluid change has been completed every two years as recommended. Valid MoT until March 2020. It is complete with a fully documented history file including all supporting Porsche Main Agent Invoices, previous MoT's and both Remote Keys. The 12V Battery has just been replaced with an Exide Premium 110Ah Battery for impeccable starting performance. Other noteworthy work includes the replacement of all Coil Packs, the Poly V-Belt and Rear Suspension/Coil Springs at 20k Miles, carried out by Porsche at a cost of £2350.
It also has the added benefit of being the latest 997 on the (pre-23/3/06) lower road tax cost of £315 (registered 3/3/06), rather than the whopping £560 payable each year for later cars.
The car has just returned from a Professional Valeting Company where it has spent 3 days undergoing a Complete Interior Valet, Single Stage Paint Polish, Full De-Contamination, Fabric Hood Weather Protection (UV & Chemical) and Britemax Quartz Ceramic Coating Application, offering 4 Years, Superior Quality, Durable Paint Protection.
Many of the Specialist Websites and Forums site the 3.6 as the best and most reliable of the engines in the 997 and tend to prefer this particular model for not having the complicated/problematic PASM (Active Suspension). One renowned site stated “The first generation of the Porsche 997 is already considered as a future classic” and this example is certainly an excellent investment in that vein, especially with values now increasing for low mileage cars.
The addition of the date-less ‘911’ Number Plate completely changes the look of the car and suits it brilliantly. It not only looks great by only having six digits and containing the model number of the car but as the car is in such great condition, it turns it from an 06 plate in to something that looks much newer and more expensive.
The plate is for sale with the car at an additional cost and is a purely optional choice for the new owner.
This car drives wonderfully and sounds amazing, it handles the road brilliantly and is a true thoroughbred sports car. If you’re not too keen on admiring looks and nods of respect then it’s probably not the car for you.
It is definitely the best colour combination and the 3.6 litre engine mated to the 6 Speed Manual Gearbox, with all of the options, investments, history, maintenance, tax band, low mileage and additional (£850) ceramic coating application, as detailed above, it is certainly an impressive, complete and possibly unique package.
THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING LOOKING AND VERY LOW MILEAGE EXAMPLE THAT HAS BEEN KEPT IN EXCELLENT CONDITION THROUGHOUT. IT IS A SUPURB CAR AND A SOUND FUTURE INVESTMENT.
‘Optional Extras’ offered for sale with the car at additional cost are:
Set of 4 ‘Lobster Claw’ 19” ‘S’ Alloy Wheels (without tyres) – Fully Refurbished - £600 (typically £800-£1000)
Genuine Porsche Weatherproof Car Cover (w. Porsche Crest) Inc. Storage Bag - £150 (rrp £299)
