This Porsche’s has the excellent short shift gearbox in manual , which is always the drivers choice. Only around 20% of these models are available in the manual option now as people have issues with the tip-tronics of the time. Other developments include the latest 911 Turbo’s four-wheel drive hardware and PTV, or Porsche Torque Vectoring, which varies the drive to each individual rear wheel for more neutral cornering and spectacular traction.

Presented in its original shade of Grey, this 911 Turbo retains a deep and even shine throughout. There is very little evidence of any stone chips at all, and the vendor describes it as in excellent condition. Demonstrating even shut lines throughout, there is no evidence of any panel damage whatsoever, and no scratches or dents.

The glass and badging are free of imperfections, while the electronically-retractable rear spoiler is in fully-operational condition. The 997 retains its original Turbo-specific 19-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. The Rims are sat on Bridgestone Potenza tyres on 235/35/19’s. These are in good condition with no signs of kerbing or damage to the centre caps.

The interior has a full Black leather upholstery with very little wear anywhere on the seats at all. The seats remain in excellent condition.

This 911 is equipped with the integrated PCM with sat-nav and upgraded Bose sound system. Electrically controlled memory seats are a lovely upgrade on the example too.

Offering an appealing specification and in original condition throughout, this Porsche 997 Turbo is a supremely capable high-performance coupe, which is practical and refined enough to use every day.
