1981 PORSCHE 911 996 MANUAL ** £9,000 Engine Rebuild ** For SaleShort video of the car: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGbKG_-6gRA
Porsche 911 996 Carrera 4 manual, registered 22/04/1999, 107k miles (with 4k miles on the engine), MOT 31/09/18, full service history, 7 owners, HPI clear.
This Porsche is a stunning example, with it's uncommon Zenith Blue (paint colour code L3AX) bodywork and factory fitted GT aero kit, it is a true head-turner and stands out amongst the 996 crowd. This particular car is also a non-sun roof model, which presents a car with a lovely clean and sleek looking roof line. The condition of the bodywork is absolutely beautiful; every body panel is pin straight and there are no scrapes or scratches present. The Zenith paint is full of vibrance and shines beautifully, benefitting from a full body soft-mop machine polish and wax while in with us. Being highly critical, there are a few stone chips to the bonnet and inside the wheel arches, however the front bumper has been removed and resprayed while in with us, so is without a mark. The Porsche sits on it's original and genuine Porsche BBS GT3 two piece split alloy wheels. All four are in presentable condition and are fitted with new Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.
The Metropol Blue coloured interior is the perfect compliment to the Zenith Blue exterior. Everything inside is in exceptional condition, from the sports hard back heated seats, which at worst, only have very minor wear to the drivers side bolstering, to the suede alcantara headlining, which is as new. The door-cards, dash and carpets are also all in very nice order and everything inside works just as Porsche intended for it to. There is a high specification of factory optional extras on this Porsche, including; sports hard back seats with shoulders supports, heated seats, alcantara headlining, "Tequipment" aluminium embodied gear stick, "Tequipment" aluminium embodied handbrake lever, "Tequipment" chrome exhaust tips, onboard computer with mpg calculator etc, GT3 aero kit, non-sun roof selection. The optional extra codes are as follows: C16, XE3, XME, X54, X97, X98, 139, 236, 340, 375, 376, 413, 436, 446, 490, 571, 659, 09981, 09991.
Mechanically, this Porsche 911 is as beautiful as it looks. As per the advert title, the 3.4 litre flat 6 engine was subject to a comprehensive rebuild on 04/11/2016 at 103k miles, at the expense of £9,272.50, carried out by Porsche specialists "Marque 21". This included all the usual parts and works included in a full rebuild, and in addition, installation of 6 new, uprated cylinder liners and uprated IMS bearing. The engine purrs through it's stainless steel sports exhausts and has power in abundance. The 6 speed manual gearbox operates just as it should do, with new gear cables fitted 15,000 miles ago, and the clutch performs perfectly, thanks to being renewed just 8,000 miles ago, along with renewal of the dual mass flywheel. The brakes stop the Porsche on a sixpence, with all the discs and pads seeing little miles and all of the brake lines having been renewed, including installation of braided-type lines and renewal of the brake line that requires the engine be removed to do so. The car handles just as it did when it rolled out of Stuttgart in 1999, with vast amounts of grip produced by the four wheel drive system, an excellent feel given through the steering wheel, and no abnormal noises from any suspension components, having had most of it's steering and suspension components renewed within recent years. Please see the "Service history" section to see full details.
There is a fully documented serviced history present with the car, which includes the original fully stamped maintenance booklet, a thick wad of invoices for previous works, most MOT certificates since new, and the original leather Porsche wallet with the original Porsche booklets.
