Afternoon All,

It has come time to sell the turbo after many years of trusty ownership I am off to try something new. I have a PX deal agreed in principal but thought I would offer the car up for sale on here too.

Details:

I purchased the car from RPM Technik back in 2015 and since then it has been looked after by a combination of RPM, Porsche Centre Bournemouth and ZRS Engineering. The car wants for nothing and all worked carried out using either original OEM parts or the best quality aftermarket parts.

In the last 18months I have had all the items required of a car of this age, which included replacement of the plastic coolant elbows under the inlet manifold (required removal of the engine and gearbox). whilst in there I had the oil and coolant lines around the engine replaced as well as the gearbox mount and gearbox to prop shaft donut.
Full fluids including gearbox and front differential.

Just last month the car had a suspension overhaul to replace all the existing rubber bushes with polyurethane ones as well as adjustable lower front arms. It was then given a full geometry set up and corner weighted for optimum handling.

The brakes were replaced last year with standard Porsche items and full fluid flush and braided lines. I have never experience any brake fade and coupled with the Michelin tyres is very confidence inspiring in all conditions.

The front coolant and air con radiators were renewed last year along with the coolant pipes and o rings so both systems are tip top and the a/c blows extremely cold.

The car has been regularly magazine featured over the years in both 911 & Porsche World plus Total 911 where I had a monthly column in the living the legends section with this and my Gt3.

Jim ,I have spent many hours driving in groups with you and that is a beautiful and cherished car ,and the exhaust note is probably the best 997 turbo sound I have heard. Good luck with the sale and hope your getting into something else we car enjoy meeting up and going for a run with. Thumb

What a lovely car for £40k . Generous of you to include the Kline exhaust , most sellers might have taken that off and sold separately Question

Great advert, and whoever ends up with it has got a great example thumbsup

I took delivery of a new VW California 2 weeks ago, if I hadn’t I’d be on my way to see you.

This looks a bit of a bargain to me - even going on the mileage
