The Classic Sale at Silverstone Festival 2023 Cars 128 Registration: LT02 SVW Chassis No.: WP0ZZZ99Z2S604571 Estimate: £26,000 - £32,000 Specialist: Steven Keen Telephone No: 07500 040422 Lot 630 2002 Porsche 911 (996) Carrera 4 - Manual The 996 is the internal designation for the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between 1998 and 2005. On its debut, the 996 featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its 1963 introduction, namely the water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled unit. Progressively stringent noise regulations, environmental concerns, a higher expectation for refinement and a high-performance, four-valve per cylinder engine made the switch desirable. Other changes included a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windscreen and a redesigned interior. The performance characteristics remained superb with reliability at its core. Offered here, fresh to the market from one private owner, is a 2002 Porsche 911 (996) Carrera 4 with manual transmission and four-wheel drive. Our vendor ordered the 911 finished in beautiful Lapis Blue Metallic over a Graphite Grey leather interior with matching carpets and options also ticked included a sun roof, air-conditioning, electric sports seats and ‘Turbo Look’ alloy wheels. Since taking delivery of the Porsche in March 2002 from Porsche West London (copy of the original purchase invoice in the file), the car has always been correctly dry stored and serviced regularly by the supplying dealer with the most recent service and MOT in February 2023, with an invoice for £1,500. The current indicated mileage is 31,095. This 2002 ‘face-lift’ C4 features some updates to the earlier cars including the 3.6-litre engine with variable valve timing and the ‘teardrop’ headlamps from the Turbo. Being the very first from the water-cooled Porsche era, the 996 is fast becoming collectable with a strong enthusiast following and examples with low ownership and relatively low miles rarely come to market. A true modern classic and very likely to be the best example currently available, a perfect candidate for the more fastidious Porsche owner or a great introduction to 911 ownership. A genuine, one owner from new, manual gearbox, 996 Carrera 4 with just over 31,000 miles, a rare opportunity. More Details Lot 630 Bid On Lot 630
