Pocket Rocket are to pleased to offer for sale a hand selected 2005 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S.
This tastefully specified Porsche 911 Carrera S is a well-presented example of the brand’s desirable 997-generation sports car. The 3.8-litre flat-six engine sends its 350bhp might to the rear wheels via Porsche’s magical 6-Speed manual transmission. The odometer reads 42,000 miles.
This 911 was first registered on 13th March 2005 and it has passed through the hands of only 3 previous owners over the intervening 15 years. The last custodian having kept the car for 7 years.
The car’s seal grey paintwork is in good condition, with tight shutlines and clean brightwork. The ‘lobster-claw’ alloy wheels are in great condition commensurate with an 42,000-mile car.
Inside, this 911 is in good order, with no known damage or faults. The full Ocean leather upholstery is all original, and has aged very well, with just a few creases on the driver’s seat bolster. The switchgear appears to be original and works well, while the car is equipped with Porsche’s original infotainment screen and climate control.
The car was last serviced on April 24, 2019, at 41,541 miles. The maintenance, carried out by specialist garage PH Sports Cars (Porsche Specialists), near Derby, included a manufacturers specified major service including auxiliary belt. Two new A/C condensers including a a/c system re-gas were also replaced in 2019. This work followed a previous minor service also at PH Sports Cars on 38,976 miles (incl. gearbox oil and brake fluid change) and another major service at around 35,681 miles.
In 2018 at 40,869 miles 4 new Michelin Pilot Sport tyres were fitted – 4S variants to the front and Sport 2 to the rears.
The most recent MOT test was on 29th October 2020 at 42,742 miles, which resulted in a clean pass.
This 911 is a beautifully specified and well-maintained example that’s ready and raring to go. The 3.8-litre engine M97 engine is generally slightly less susceptible to IMS issues than the M96 fitted to earlier 996-era 911s, as well as being bigger and more powerful. With that motor in the engine bay and bags of maintenance under its belt, this is a smart, stylish sports car that’s sure to put a smile on the face of its next owner.
