||Last attempt (with a healthy price reduction) as we really don’t have the space for it.
Bought from Portiacraft (well known specialist in NW London) in October 2016 and not an easy choice to sell as I think it’s good enough to be a keeper. Previously owned by (in my opinion) a very careful owner (regular 911uk member) and, judging from the thick folder of receipts and generally clean MOTs, similar previous owners before that.
It’s a rare colour combination that is absolutely beautiful in the flesh and makes the 911 stand out even more.

In my ownership of almost 2 years, I’ve only done 7k miles and it’s not needed, and I’m not aware of it needing, any major work and I’ve only had to do the following:
• Regular annual servicing and MOT (Portiacraft, expires October 2018)
• No oil consumption recorded between servicing
• NSR brake light replaced (by me, May 2018)
• New battery (Portiacraft, Jan 2018)
• Tiptronix gearbox service and new oil pressure switch (Portiacraft, Oct 2017)
• NSF headlight washer replaced (Portiacraft, July 2017)
• Aircon condensers and key replaced (Portiacraft said done as part of sale prep, Oct 2016)
• No leaks observed on driveway or fluid loss during use
Portiacraft said there were no signs of borescoring or IMS issues at time of sale (also confirmed in an earlier report commissioned by a previous owner) and were willing to extend their warranty to 2 years as they were that confident in the condition of the car.
This car drives exceptionally well and I’ve had no issues mechanically. I’ve always let it warm up before driving and mainly used BP Ultimate or Shell V-Power. The air con blows cold, radio and electronics all work. The interior is in great condition for its age (other than a few minor marks not easily noticeable), seats are extremely comfortable (even on long journeys) and there are no significant dents or major scratches except for some small stone chips on front bonnet and bumper (again, consistent with age and regular use, it’s not a garage queen). The wheels are (in my view) a nicer design, 2 un-marked and the other 2 with minor kerbing (I can get these fixed if bought at asking price).
I’ve used this car regularly and it’s been fantastic with no real concerns. We recently drove to Bruges and the car didn’t miss a beat. I’ve bought an aftermarket Bluetooth receiver and FM transmitter that plugs into the power socket and allows you to take calls or stream music over the radio (with USB to charge phone). Works really well and happy to include this and a generic OBD reader with the sale (at no extra cost). I also have black carpets and custom made rubber mats (can be added to sale at no extra cost).
I think I’ve priced it reasonably but open to a sensible conversation with a serious buyer. Please feel free to get in touch if you need more information and happy to co-ordinate an inspection.
I’m based in Stanmore, Greater London.
