Porsche 996 Carrera 2 Tiptronic S cabriolet 2001

Porsche 996 Carrera 2 Tiptronic S cabriolet 2001


Unique? We think so…….

One owner, just 12,000 miles from new and a huge list of individual options……where would you find another 911 like this?

Supplied in August 2001, we have the original order form and correspondence between the buyer and Carrs of Exeter (the Porsche main dealer for Devon). It shows how much thought went into the specification choices, and with the price tag totalling just over 70% of the average UK house price of the time, this 911 was a very serious and exclusive purchase.

Full Savanna beige interior with leather extending over the seats, dashboard, ignition surround and door panels. As a contrast, the trims (instrument surround, centre console, dash trim, centre and side vent surrounds, door panels and speaker surrounds) are finished in dark burr maple.

The theme continues with a leather and dark burr maple steering wheel with Tiptronic controls, and aluminium and dark burr maple details for the handbrake lever and Tiptronic gear selector.

The seats are heated and 8-way electrically adjustable with memory for the driver’s side.

Original Porsche CDR-22 radio/CD plus Sound System (10 speakers).

Air conditioning and onboard trip computer.

Classic Guards red bodywork (with a matching hardtop), black convertible hood, stainless steel exhaust pipes and 17″ Carrera 2 alloys with full colour Porsche crest centre caps.

Having covered less than 800 miles in the last 10 years, venturing out only, it seems, for an annual MOT test, this incredible 911 will now undergo recommissioning maintenance and servicing here in the Williams Crawford workshop.

Once fully prepared, this cabriolet will be worthy of any Porsche collection, welcomed at car shows and Porsche events and, most importantly, a great Porsche to drive and enjoy.

Looking to the future, in comparison to any other 996, it will always be low mileage and very distinctive; that is something that cannot be replicated once it is lost.

Complete with original book pack, service book and manuals, the price list (from which the spec was chosen) and ‘Selection’ accessories catalogue for the time. Plus a folder of various invoices and a complete set of MOT certificates.

2 keepers, but just 1 owner from new (initially registered his a business name, later transferred to private).
