Very good condition but he won't budge on price. and it's been on their web site for a while now.

Comes with 3 month warranty

Said he will swap the wheels for turbos as and when he gets them, if I want, the current wheels are very nice too though..

Comments please

Thanks

My thoughts are it's a good spec, but no PSE nooo and that's pretty top money for a 34k 06. Not top, top money, but up there.

I know the 4s seem to go for a little more than the 2s, but I still think £40k is a touch heavy. Nice car though!

In spite of the lack of a PSE (which can be retro-fitted anyway), it's a very good spec. Sport Designs on a black 997 look great and so would Turbo alloys too. I think the car would drive better with the latter type alloys because, I believe, of their lesser unsprung weight. If I didn't have my Atlas Gray 997, then this is probably the car I would have bought. Don't forget also it's cheaper road tax on this car before they shot up on the 2007/8 models.

Imho the porsche warranty is essential for a gen 1 997 .
At 40 grand that car isnt cheap , and three months down the line it could look very expensive if you have any serious faults or , god forbid , your engine goes pop . Three months warranty is not good enough , and their price to extend is almost as much as the OPC warranty .
Get on porsches' ucl now !

Lovely car, great spec and only missing PSE (which is a must for me). Tad on the expensive side too, particularly with only a 3 month non OPC warranty. Keep looking I say, and check out the Porsche network.

There is a black 4S at OPC West London, year older but less miles, with PSE / Sport Chrono and a two year warranty. I bet there is room to haggle on that, I know which one I would go for!

Am I mistaken in thinking that if a car had Sports Chrono Pack then it automatically has PSE...??

I learn something every day!!

Unfortunately no. These are two options that can be specified independantly of one another.

Up against a 12/04 C2 with 58.5K miles currently at OPC Reading, that C4S looks rather a bargain...

i actually think its not bad. RSJ are great, speaking to Joel from there in the past they are very helpful. If PSE is what you want just ask Joel he'll sort it out for you i'm sure.

But I'm sure he won't do it for free. In which case you might as well get a 2 yr OPC warranty on the same car with 10k less on the clock for the same dough, surely?

It is a nice car, but I just think too close to OPC money to be tempting.

sorry i meant RSJ are not bad......yes agree the price is steep and a good search you'll be able to find better from OPC.
My mistake.

Hi
I'm just in the process of buying this one and going on (but not round) the Nurburgring trip in a couple of weeks. Porsche were not interested in price negotiation though they did agree to include an oil change and a cosmetic repair to the PU. I've been looking for a 997 for a while and looked at all the usual dealers and OPC sites, this onne with 23K on the clock seemed good for the price - they have a black C4S there with 28K on the clock with less spec (no sports exhaust - but new front discs and a good set of treads all round) I just hope I've made the right choice!! Cheers-Steve Very Happy
