Additional information Here for sale is my beautiful 2003 Porsche 911 996 Carrera 2 manual coupe.

As you can see from the photos, this is quite a special car.

The spec is great, and being a C2 Manual with low miles and FSH it is quite rare.

I am only the 3rd owner. The first owner had it a few years, then the second owner had it of 12 years and took very good care of it.

Spec includes:

Metallic Black

18” Porsche BBS Wheels

Black leather hard back sports seats

Sun roof

PSM

Sports exhaust (aftermarket)

CD changer

USB head unit (original Becker unit included in sale)

Option codes: C16, XCA, XCB, XCD, X54, X76, 226, 375, 376, 411, 425, 476, 576, 936, 09991

Since I have owned the car it has had a complete suspension overhaul, including new coffin arms, new tuning fork arms, new shock absorbers, new springs, new top mounts and new track control arms. I had the geometry set to X74 dimensions (this is a Porsche factory suspension option) so it handles beautifully. Any 996 will need this work, so if you are buying one you need to budget for this work or find one that’s had it done. It’s not cheap, see the 9Excellence receipt in the photos.

It has also had new sports exhaust silencers and new front brake pads.

All four brake discs have loads of life in (replaced less than 10k miles ago), all four tyres are N Rated Michelin Pilot Sports with lots of tread left.

You can see the car has never missed a service, it took me a long time to find such a well cared for car. The previous owner to me had it for 12 years, and it has always been garaged but used daily.

I now keep it in my garage, and only drive it on dry days.

The last service was a major, so the next is a minor which is due in September.

The engine is superb, and has no tell tale signs of bore score, it sounds beautiful. It pulls like a train, and gives that distinct 911 howl as you climb up through the rev range. Also no need to worry about IMS failure. As the car has made it to 70k miles and has FSH it’s a good one!

The body work is in very good condition for it’s age, but it does have a couple of battle scars. There is a small ding on the drivers door, a small bit if rust on one of the roof bars, a stone chip on the bonnet and the wheels could do with a refurb. If I was keeping the car I was going to wait until the summer and have this stuff rectified with a full detail. I've had quotes for the work which totalled £700. I believe this is reflected in the price.

As you can see the interior is in near perfect condition. There are a few little marks here and there, but it really is very very good. It also has the added benefit of a new head unit with a USB port. The original stereo is included in the sale as well.

The hard back sports seats are really supportive, and the leather is in great condition. No sagging or rips, and the side bolsters are not worn at all.

The reason I am selling is due to a new job. I am in no rush to sell however and want to make sure it goes to a good home. The 996 is becoming very desirable and C2 manuals like this don’t come along too often. I would like to think the next owner will cherish it like I have.
