Well sorted and optioned face-lift 3.6 auto/tiptronic all-wheel drive coupe; just 75,950 miles with mega history including the essential preventative IMS & RMS replacement

Supplied new by Porsche Zentrum Hamburg in August 2002 this exceptional face-lift 3.6 Carrera 4 coupe boasts all-wheel drive sure-footedness with desirable 5-speed automatic/tiptronic transmission (249) and has covered just 70,700 miles in the hands of its 4 caring owners and comes with an excellent service history.

The car very much looks the part finished in Seal Grey (L6B4) with matching graphite grey full leather interior (CZ) and rides on staggered 5-spoke 18inch Carrera alloy wheels (411) shod in a new set of the correct premium tyres. The options fitted to this car include the rare '09991' code meaning the car was subject to the 'Sonderwunsch Programme' now known as Porsche's 'Exclusive' scheme for a more bespoke specification where the vehicle leaves the production line and heads to the 'Werk 1' area for fitment of bespoke/custom specification.

The options fitted to this car in addition to what comes as standard include, a rear wiper (425), 4-spoke leather Sports steering wheel with Tiptronic paddles (432), sound pack (490), green graduated tint windscreen (567), park assist (635), thicker steering wheel (XPA), branded stainless kick plates (X70), leather rear seat facings (936) and front and rear leather seats (983). The headlining to this example is finished in brushed grey suede and we also see an on-board computer and digital climate control with AC. Outside we also note fitment of double sports tails to the exhaust and useful ZunSport mesh grills fitted to the air intakes within the front bumper to prevent damage to the AC condensers (they commonly get damaged from exposure).

BC02 was last owned by a lady owner, prior to this it belonged to a marque enthusiast and retired engineer for the past few years after many years of air-cooled 911 ownership. During his tenure and after much research, he opted to have the car undergo some essential preventative engine-out maintenance carried out by Devon Specialists SCS Porsche who in May 2019 at a cost of some £2,900 at 66,462 miles replaced the often troublesome IMS (intermediate shaft) bearing for the revised ceramic hybrid version, along with the RMS (rear main seal) which is also known to fail, new uprated crank case bolts, 2 new rear metal brake pipes, 4 short brake pipe to calliper sections, the air to oil separator, a pair of engine mounts, brake fluid change, underbody wax-oil, service and borescope inspection of cylinders 5&6 which were clear of any scoring (another common 996 gremlin).

 

In late 2022 BC02 was subject to a major service including the fitment of four new tyres and a wheel refurbishment at a cost of £2,101. 34.

The history file for this 996 is impressive, within which we find the V5C, owner's pack and service book showing 13 stamps, the first 7 by Porsche Solihull, followed by 5 from Dave Griffiths Racing Ltd of Shrewsbury and last by SCS Porsche Specialist of Devon as mentioned. In addition to these 13, there are a further 6 for brake fluid changes, 4 for Long Life condition reports and 2 for airbags checks.

Invoices on file support many of these stamps, with the most recent oil change (unstamped) in November 2019 at 69,124 miles which also included replacement of electronic switch over valve on the side of the gearbox. Other maintenance of note includes a replacement water pump and exhaust repair in August 2021, a major service in 2018 costing £2,793 by Dave Griffiths Racing which included replacement of all belts, an exhaust repair, 2x O2 sensors, 2x new AC condensers, a new high-pressure pipe and AC drier plus re-gas of the AC system. Another bill on file shows a £5k spend in 2016 for suspension/brake components, wheel alignment and annual service. Evidently, looking through the history it’s been cosseted with a money no object attitude and with all the common 996 failings having been addressed preventatively rather than reactively.

We also find 12 old MOTs, a current clean MOT valid until September 2022, 2 keys and old copy V5C's. A very well sorted and presentable Carrera 4 variant in the right colour, original factory specification with just 5 owners and only 75,000 miles we feel this represents a very enticing prospect for regular use or investment.
