PostPosted: Sat Apr 28, 2018 10:36 am    Post subject: The Black Car Daddy – my beautiful 997.1T is for sale Reply with quote

Just don't tell my 8 year old daughter - she loves this car. The title of this ad is what she says when I give her the choice for a journey.

Delivered 21/10/06 997 Turbo, manual in Basalt black with Black interior. If you’re looking for one of these you will know the standard spec so I won’t repeat it all. The car has done 59,200 miles and is absolutely mint. This is an overused term but the paint protection film on the front has done an amazing job of keeping the paint pristine. The interior is a beautiful place to be, it is virtually perfect. If I was being a bit picky there is a very minor amount of wear on the driver’s seat bolster but hardly noticeable. Full service history, all in the right time frame – some OPC but mostly the well-respected Northway Porsche.

The last visit to Northway was for a major service in Jan 18 when, as well as the service, it had 2 coil packs changed. Correct tyres were new 2,000 miles ago and a new battery was fitted in November. Plenty of invoices etc to back up the history.

I hate it when I read adverts that say no rush to sell but I am afraid it’s one of those. I’m only looking to sell as we are moving house and our new place is up a narrow lane which won’t suit the 997 at all.

I am asking £54k. I have already turned down £50k so please don’t expect me to give it away. Happy for test drives but I need to see your insurance and I will take a photo of your driving licence.

I bought this car 14 months ago as it was the best I had seen and the performance is insane. I’m not enjoying typing this but I know I won’t make use of it in our new place. New owner will have nothing to spend for 2 years (except fuel which it sips at 22 to the gallon).

Options
• Sport Chrono Plus
• Factory SSK
• Rear wiper
• Electric memory heated seats
• Rear Park Assist
• Sunroof

Enhancements
• Gen 2 alloys
• LED rear lights
• LED front aux lights
• DesignTek 4 pipe tailpipes,
• Dension 500 Telephone module (iphone connection)
• BMC air filter
• Silicone DesignTek boost pipe kit

Service History
• Minor - November 2008 12,349 miles, Leeds OPC
• Major - July 2010, 23,263 miles, RPM Specialist Cars Harrogate
• Minor - August 2011, 42,606 miles, Northway Porsche
• Major - Dec 2013, 47,605 miles, Northway Porsche
• Minor - Nov 2015, 55,289 miles, Northway Porsche
• Major – January 2018, 59,063 miles, Northway Porsche

Nice car - sensibly priced. Thumb

Why don't you place a proper advert in the 911uk classifieds. Question

All the details are on the left hand side of the screen and it's free.

Once again, good luck. Thumb

Sadly it looks like you're already experiencing how difficult it is to sell cars such as this privately. Most of the people in a position to turn up with £50k+ in cash are dealers and they don't want to pay much over 'trade' for stock.

Most people have cars they want to part-ex and/or want the finance facilities and have to pay a premium for a similar car. nooo

With luck you'll find that one person you need who's in apposition to do a good deal for themselves and you.

Cheers

Congrats on sale, any regrets selling it?
Which source did the buyer come through? I have only advertised here and PH but have only receive enquiries from time wasters.
I would normally sell to my friends at 911V but they are overstocked on 997t's at the moment.
