Porsche 911 996 C2 Tiptronic In Ocean Blue metallic with Full soft graphite grey ruffled leather. This completely original and very well looked after 911 is a very early 996 model, the first water cooled 911. It has only covered 51099 miles and is fresh from long term 13 year ownership. This beautiful car has benefited from a very comprehensive Porsche service history and careful ownership.
This superb 911 has a very desireable specification starting with its classic colour combination of Ocean Blue with Grey Ruffled Leather electric memory seats. A host of factory fitted options include Satellite Navigation, Electric Sunroof, Heated Memory Seats, Cruise Control, Headlight Washers (very rare), upgrade stereo with 6CD player. Other spec is, climate control, remote central locking, Electric heated door mirrors, multifunction computer, electric windows, ABS, traction control and 17” Alloy Wheels.
All books (including original Brochure), Service History, invoices, MOT’s and ownership history are present together with two keys.
First registered on the 27/02/1998 supplied by Chapelgate Motors in Dorset. I suspect it was a dealer demo originally then sold on to its first private owner (2nd owner on the V5), Mr Malcolm Godden. Mr Godden kept the car for just over three years and had yearly servicing done at the supplying dealer.
The 3rd owner was a company called Delichon, purchased on the 4/07/2001 they kept the car a further 3 years and once again kept the annual servicing done at the supplying dealer.
Karl Brown was the 4th and 5th owner as he transferred it to his company name (Prestige and Performance Cars), before selling it 2 years later. Servicing was done at Bournemouth Porsche during his ownership.
The last and 6th owner on the V5 is Mr Sandher who purchased the car on the 02/08/2006. Mr Sandher’s Porsche dealer of Choice was Porsche Centre Reading who completed all its servicing requirements up to date. All invoices are present in the history file from this period totalling £14,677.
6 owners on the V5 although this is effectively only 4. The service book has been comprehensively completed and most of the invoice, repair bills and MOT’s are present. Low ownership and great maintenance gives confidence in the quality of the car and is evident when you drive it.

As per my preparation process I have had an independent check and service done, no major faults found as per my description, only a service and replacement of the Coolant cap needed.
I have tried to be as accurate as possible with the condition, it really is in superb order with only a few imperfections commensurate with age.

The 996 was the first air cooled Porsche 911 and is fast appreciating from it’s current value for money proposition. the price is well below dealer and specialist price and it is sure to be a future classic and appreciate, Therefore if you are looking for an investment this would be a sensible choice, particularly with its superb provenance.
