With a production run from 2004-2012, the "997" generation 911 was hailed as being a "back to basics" resurgence for Porsche following on from the very much underwhelming "996 generation." Originally offered with the 3.6 or 3.8 engines, the Carrera was seen to be the most popular choice, with the flat 6 engine producing the growl that they are known for and mated to either a 6-Speed Manual Transmission or a 5-Speed "Tiptronic" Automatic transmission. The latter was replaced with an ultra-slick 7-Speed Twin Clutch PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) Automatic Transmission which was lightyears ahead of the outdated and sluggish tiptronic transmission.
During 2009, the second generation 997 was launched, featuring revised styling, a much better and more modern PCM (Porsche Communication Management) User Interface, revised front bumper with larger intakes, LED rear lights and indicators, new projector headlamps with LED Running Lights and a new engine with direct injection which also reduced CO2 emissions and allowed for lower road fund license banding in the UK. These minor changes enhanced the car dramatically and cemented the Porsche in being a usable, everyday sports car.
We are very pleased to offer this stunning, late model second generation 2011 Porsche 911 "997" Carrera PDK 3.6 Coupe. This Carrara White with Full Black Leather interior example is fitted with the 3.6 litre flat 6 engine producing 345BHP and 288ib/ft of torque, allowing for a 0-60mph time of just 4.7 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 155MPH. What's more, this stunning coupe is fitted with the later, much more desirable twin clutch PDK 7-Speed Automatic Transmission. This gearbox really is fantastic. It is effortlessly smooth and refined in automatic mode but it is also fitted with steering wheel mounted paddles to allow for a super-quick manual gearchange if preferred.
Originally supplied by Porsche Centre Cambridge on 26/7/2011, it has been fully maintained by themselves throughout its life. One main point to note is that the 911 service intervals are only due every 2 years or 20,000 miles, whichever is reached first, further cementing the image that these really are a usable everyday sports car. "AJ11 NXR" has had three services in total, all carried out by Porsche Centre Cambridge. The first was on 6/9/2012 at 20,481 miles, the second was on 23/5/2013 at 39,363 miles and the third was on 15/5/2015 at 57,302 miles which was a major service which also included the important spark plug change.
On the time basis, the next service will be due on 15/5/2017. As part of the preparation package that we supply, the vehicle will have a manufacturer specification service complete with brake fluid change prior to sale ready for the new owner, along with an RAC Approved Inspection for complete peace of mind. Although the vehicle does have higher than average mileage, particularly for this type of car, it has been maintained impeccably, both cosmetically and mechanically and really must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated.
This particular coupe, when new was specified fantastically, with over £11,500 worth of optional extras. These include the 7-Speed PDK Transmission, Sport Chrono Package Plus consisting of selectable driving modes that affect traction control and engine mapping, Analogue and Digital Timing System and modification of throttle map, Extended Navigation Module, 19" Carrera S II Wheels with polished rim (of which all 4 are original and unblemished), electric tilt/slide sunroof, BOSE Sound System, Telephone Module for PCM with Bluetooth, Rear Park Assist, black PDK gear surround, heated seats, three spoke sports steering wheel
with gearbox mounted shift paddles, Universal audio interface with USB and AUX connectivity, storage compartment lid with "Carrera" logo, colour coded Carrara White centre console and velour carpet mats. This really is a very generously equipped coupe with all of the important extras including BOSE, PCM and Heated Seats to name but a few to make the whole driving experience much more enjoyable. This is all of course in addition to the already massive standard spec including Bi-Xenon Headlights with LED Running Lights, Climate Control, Remote Locking, Electric windows and mirrors and much, much more.
We are truly delighted to be able to offer this stunning example. The car comes completely HPI Checked and Clear with all certification to validate, complete Owners Manual and Book Pack with Full Porsche Service History stamped in the Guarantee and Maintenance booklet, current MOT until January 2018 and both original sets of Porsche keys. The new owner will also have the benefit of an extendable 6 Month RAC Warranty and 12 Months Breakdown Cover for complete peace of mind, as well as the pre-sale RAC Approved Inspection and Service. Tremendous car and superb value on sale at £37,995.
