1999 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 (996)

Bidders note that upon inspection, this car is a C4 and not a C2. It is badged a C4 but this is not referenced on any of the paperwork.  

Earlier 3.4 Carrera 4 Tiptronic S in an attractive colour scheme wearing pretty 997 alloy wheels with scope to improve

Dating from March 1999 this earlier 3.4 engine 996 generation of water-cooled flat six Coupe comes to us in Ocean Blue Metallic and rides on a set of attractive 19inch alloy wheels usually found on the later 997 Carrera S model which really set it off visually in conjunction with the silver Zunsport mesh grills in the front.

The option codes for this example (as taken off the underside bonnet sticker) include full blue Metropol Blue leather (EG), 5-speed automatic/tiptronic transmission (249), 2-way electrical adjustment Sports seats LH & RH (375 & 376), tiptronic buttons for steering wheel (432), 3-spoke steering wheel (436) and automatic speed control (454). This example also looks to have been fitted with paddles to change gear in tiptronic mode which is usually either installed by Porsche through their 09991-option code for bespoke fittings which is not mentioned on the options code here or by after-market fitment.

The history file includes the V5C showing 10 previous owners, some 15 old MOTs and current valid until the 21st of December 2021 recording just 2 advisories for NS front strut top bearing and OSR tyre perishing, brochures and a ream of invoices for parts and routine maintenance including new A/C pipes, service kit and ignition coil in 2016, speed, ABS sensor, oil pressure sensor and window regulator in 2015 with further invoices dating back a number of years.

The car looks appealing in its colour scheme with Sports seats and sat on the 997 wheels, the odometer showing 116,762 miles. There are a few marks (as pictured) to the car and we did note on moving it around for these images there was a slight ticking noise on idle – but then the car is priced at an appealing price point should it require some remedial work and has been sat for some time prior to the sale on a military camp at Creden Hill, Hereford.

Documents: V5C; invoices; brochures; 15 old MOTs; current MOT Dec-21 with 2 advisories
