I really can't praise the condition of this 911 enough - it is simply stunning. Apart from a couple of very minor chips on the edge of one of the alloys, there is no money that you could spend to improve it. I have certainly never seen a more cared for example. I have just had the car MOT'd and the only thing that was advised were a couple of front tyres due to very slight cracking on the outer edge. I have had these replaced (Michelin N3's). I have thoroughly inspected the underside whilst on the ramp and have taken many photographs. These show that the car is rust and damage free and that it has been extremely well undersealed. Definitely a car to keep.
The inside is in beautiful condition and the leather upholstery is first class. The soft ruffled leather upgrade really adds a touch of luxury as do the other cost options such as alluminum dash surrounds and trim. This car has never been smoked in and still has that new feel to it. The materials used are of the highest quality. I have had this car professionally valeted and detailed.
As soon as the engine turns over you know you are in for a treat. The note from the flat 6 engine is fantastic. The handling is outstanding and is one of the most involving and rewarding cars I have ever driven. Although high performance, unlike a lot of very powerful cars, it's very easy to drive around town, making it a very easy car to live with on a day to day basis.
V5 - Yes
MOT - 14/05/20.
FSH - YES
HPI CLEAR - YES
I also have a spare key and the original leather wallet which contains the collection of instruction manuals. I also have a set of original Porsche over mats which are in mint condition.
Conclusion Beautiful example of the 911 996 Targa. For me it ticks all the boxes; Impeccable service history with all major jobs done including the all important IMS bearing - so nothing to worry about there. The most outstanding condition possible, rare Targa version and its manual!!! And to top it off the 996 is actually increasing in value!
