Porsche 996 Carrera 2 manual coupe 2003


Surely, all is good in the world when you can enjoy pure, unadulterated 911 fun for this kind of money?

This 911 embodies a true drivers’ Porsche. It is enthusiastic, willing and very able.

Over the last few years it has benefited from thousands of £££’s of investment, not only in maintenance (more of that later), but with some very favourable upgrades. These include:

  • Stage 1 Performance remap by AmD Technik (Boosting power by approximately 20 bhp and improved fuel economy)
  • Milltek Sports exhaust (Produced in high quality type-304 aircraft grade stainless steel. This material is anti-magnetic (other manufacturers’ stainless steel may not be) and is less susceptible to discoloration. This quality of stainless steel is used on all pipe work and the total construction of the silencer. Mandrel bending ensures full flow bends for better gas flow and Milltek systems are increased in bore to ensure ultimate performance without the loss of mid-range torque.)
  • DesignTek high grade stainless steel headers (More power + torque is the benefit. Headers really make the car noticeably faster across the rpm range also adds a deeper sweet sound.)
  • Genuine Porsche Sports suspension system fitted by OPC Byfleet (consisting of a full set of Dampers & Springs, combines shorter & stiffer springs with thicker anti-roll bars (front and rear) plus firmer bump and rebound on all four dampers. Ride height is lowered by 10 mm.)
  • Porsche short-shifter kit (Original Porsche short-throw mechanism provides a faster, more accurate gearshift action and a more dynamic sportscar experience.)
  • 18″ BBS Sport Classic II alloy wheels
  • Dansk alloy pedal kit
  • Alcantara trimmed steering wheel
  • Pioneer navigation/DAB unit

On the road, these changes make for an engaging driving experience. It feels sharp and responsive and the sound from the exhaust system is magical.

Supplied in March 2003, it was optioned in special order Cobalt blue metallic from the Porsche Exclusive Programme with a matching centre console.

Metropole blue full leather which extends over the seats, instrument binnacle and door trims.

Heated Sports seats, rear ParkAssist, rear wiper and BOSE sound system.

It has 107,419 miles recorded, but it has been maintained to a very high standard. 14 stamps in the service book, 9 of which are with Porsche main dealers, the others by respected independent specialists. The most recent service was carried out in October 2019, less than 1,500 miles ago.

Other works of note include replacement of the water pump, air mass sensor, power steering pipes, front radiators, manifold bolts and a new key.
