Model History:

The Porsche 911 997.1 generation was produced from 2004 to 2008 and represented a significant evolution of the 911 model. It introduced a number of new design elements, including a completely redesigned front end, revised headlights, and new tail lights. The 997.1 also featured a new interior, with a redesigned dashboard and centre console. Under the hood, the 997.1 featured a range of engine options, including a 3.6L flat-six in the base model and a 3.8L flat-six in the S and GT3 models. It also introduced the first use of direct fuel injection in the 911, which helped improve fuel efficiency and performance.

Exterior Condition:

The car comes in this lovely shade of Artic Silver, which pairs well with the silver alloy wheels. The car comes with a sunroof. The car's paint condition features only minor scratches and chips in the paintwork as expected but is overall in good condition.

Interior Condition:

The car's hard-wearing dark blue leather interior looks great and has held its condition despite the mileage.


The 3.8 litre naturally aspirated flat 6 is a joy to use making all the right Porsche noises with around 350 bhp, and weighing around 1420kg this is more than enough power to get the car down the road and up to 186 mph if allowed. The engine revs to 8,400rpm and unmistakable the flat 6 sounds is something truly special.


The unibody chassis was a development of the 996, made to Porsche's high standards, it offers great chassis stiffness giving the 997 platform its direct character.


The power is sent to the diff via a 6 speed manual transmission which is a joy to use, feeling tight and mechanical as a 911 should be.


With the engine in the rear and the gearbox in front of the rear axle the gearbox and axle and encased in the same unit with the power being sent via a limited-slip differential, which gives the car a playful nature to its drive.


The steering has great communication and is very intuitive giving the driver great confidence to place the car on the road. The car has great control weight somewhere between comfort and sport.


The ventilated discs brakes are 330mm front and rear well balanced with the rear-engined bias. The brakes are easy to modulate and give good performance to the car's stopping power.
