The 901 concept of 1963 heralded the start of a production run even Porsche probably didn't expect to reach, of six decades, the name being changed to 911 to avoid difficulties with Peugeot. It was designed as a larger and more practical version of the 356 with an extra pair of seats.
Each new version of the 911 was internally codenamed by a letter of the alphabet, but it wasn't until the G-Series was introduced in 1973, that there was an obvious difference in styling and technology. The G-series remained in production until 1989. The 964 and the 993 followed and then in 1999 the 996 was launched. This was the 911s first major styling change for many years, and was even given non-elliptical headlights. At the same time the Porsche GT3 was introduced to much acclaim.
V915 LFV is one of these 996s, being first registered 1st September 1999, and had been fitted with the very desirable GT3 body kit and Turbo II alloy wheels. With a 3400 cc flat six power-train, 4-wheel drive, PSM (Porsche System Management), grey leather interior, sunroof and air conditioning.
This car has been thoroughly maintained, with a full service history, having ten stamps in the service book, the last one being carried out in December 2016, which included a brake fluid change, and with the car only travelling a few hundred miles since. The mileometer records a mileage just under 54,000, which is backed up with a raft of old MoTs and paperwork.
This 911 has been looked after correctly, with its beautiful metallic blue paintwork in remarkable condition, and a very clean interior, a total of just under £3,000 has been spent recently, to ensure the car is correct in every aspect, and new tyres have also been fitted. Offered here with Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche, MoT certificate until November this year and a history file, this car is certainly a head turner.
