It’s a reluctant sale as I have owned this car for over 4 years now and it has never missed a beat. I’ll be genuinely sad to see this car go. She is finished in a deep metallic blue with a beautiful matching dark blue full leather interior. This colour combination is much more tasteful than some of the others you’ll find out there and was definitely my first choice. Paintwork is in excellent condition and all body panels are straight as you can see from the photos.
Handling is fantastic and I have just put 2 brand new Porsche approved (N rated) “Continental Sport Contact 2” tyres on the front. The rears have done just a few hundred miles and are also Porsche approved “Continental Sport Contact 2″ (nitrogen filled), so all tyres match and have lots of mileage left. I had the wheel alignment checked on a laser rig when the fronts were fitted last week, just to be sure all is setup exactly right. The car is sitting on 18” Turbo alloys that do have a few scuffs but show off the huge red calipers very nicely. Braking is excellent.
Performance is exhilarating from a standard 911 Turbo, but this one has been remapped to give over 500BHP and 1.3 Bar of boost. The car starts first time every time, idles beautifully and behaves perfectly around town. On the open road the car transforms into a real monster and the 4 wheel drive just makes the car so grippy that you’ll never come unstuck, even in the wet. The gearbox is Tiptronic so you have the benefit of both an automatic box AND manual shifting via the thumb paddles on the steering wheel for when you are feeling sporty.
For those who don’t fully know the 911 Turbo, it has 2 seats in the rear which can accommodate children and smaller adults. My oldest is 13 and she still fits comfortably, you can use this to justify the car to your spouse if you need to
This year’s MOT has just been carried out and the car passed with flying colours, so there is a full 12 months of MOT on the car.
A service has been done on the car less than 500 miles ago at PCT Cars, an independent and well-known Porsche specialist. During this service I had front discs and pads sorted, anti-roll bar drop link and 2 wiper blades fitted. She is running on fully synthetic oil and doesn’t lose a drop.
The 911 Turbo is the one supercar that really can be used daily. She returns consistently over 20mpg going up to 30mpg on a motorway run. Road tax is a meagre £225 for a year (remember, you’ll pay another £200/yr on top for later models of this car or other supercars). Insurance was £350 this year fully comprehensive for me, so running costs are really quite low.
Here are the specifications of this remarkable car:
Porsche factory fitted Sat Nav (PCM system)
Manufacturer fitted alarm and immobiliser
Factory fitted phone integrated to PCM (needs sim module)
Radio (PCM integrated) with Multi CD changer (in trunk)
Spare spacesaver wheel and tyre
Locking wheel nuts
PSM (Porsche Stability Management)
Electric memory seats
I have the relevant manuals and codes for the PCM system (one each for the radio and navigation).
Originally supplied by Lancaster Porsche in London, this car has had the following services:
13,258 miles – AFN Porsche
24,950 miles – AFN Porsche
32,389 miles – Hatfield Porsche
39,349 miles – Chiswick Porsche
43,598 miles – Chiswick Porsche
48,573 miles – Chiswick Porsche
51,051 miles – Clive Manning Porsche
55,239 miles – MDL Specialist Cars
59,459 miles – PCT Cars Porsche Specialist
Quite a full and healthy maintenance record as you can see, all stamped up properly in the guarantee and maintenance book which I have. I also have plenty of bills and MOTs. Everything works as it should, sunroof, windows, lights, alarm, hydraulic rear spoiler. This is a very sorted car and I would challenge anyone to find a better example.
So, all in all, a stunning supercar with comprehensive service history, last owner for 4 years, cheap running costs and the prices of these future classics are just ready to go up like the model before it. A sensible and affordable proposition, so if you are looking seriously at 911 Turbos then this is the one that ticks all the boxes. It’s clean, has the right paint and interior colour combination, is extremely well looked after and is ready to use without spending any money on.
I’m based in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, 10 minutes from either Junction 4 or 7 of the M6 and 15 minutes from Junction 9 of the M42. You can PM me through this site any time.
To avoid the non-serious buyers, test pilots and scammers there are strictly no test drives without cash up front. No foreign buyers or telesales please.
Price reduced to £23,750 or nearest offer.

Well I was looking at cars with bigger rear seats and that really limited the choice. BMW M5 made sense – gorgeous V10 engine with lots of grunt and 5 good seats. Was really struggling with the £500 yearly tax and 18mpg though (if you’re lucky). Also, because it has more seat space I would use it more for family things so that means more trips to the fuel pumps.
Enter the BMW 535D M Sport. Yes, it’s a diesel but it’s a stunningly capable twin turbo engine that means it’s only a half second slower than the M5 to 60 (5.3 seconds), has 313BHP, a whopping 600NM of torque and does 51 mpg. Oh, and did I mention the £140 road tax?
Just bought one and I’m very impressed so far, will let you know how I get on.July 31, 2014 at 6:41 pm #68006RadarModerator
