Totally original and meticulously maintained, the condition of this 911 Carrera is second to none. The interior switch gear from the carbon touch points to the steering wheel and dash controls shows zero signs of age, the seats still suck the driver to the floor perfectly- there isnâ€™t a knob, vent or switch out of place.
Outside, the Arctic Silver paint highlights the cars subtle curves perfectly, the 19 inch Carrera S alloys fill the guards and the road presence is elegant and aggressive.
By far and away, the best part of this car is the way it drives. It feels tight, nimble, and as if it rolled off the showroom floor yesterday. These are all tell-tale signs of a car that has led a cherished life.
Practical with razor sharp handling, blistering performance, classically styled lines and technology that doesn't anaesthetise the driver's experience there is no wonder the 997 is fast becoming known as the last truly great 911.
