First registered in May 1996 this car was supplied new in New Zealand by the main Porsche dealer, “Giltrap Prestige”, in Auckland and it has remained in New Zealand since – up until now!
To this point, the car has had just 3 private keepers from new with the last owner (a New Zealand based Optometrist) purchasing the car in 1999 at just over 14,000 miles (22,700 kms) from Giltrap Prestige.
He used the car for the following 3 years as his daily transport, covering a further 12,500 miles (20,000 kms) and entrusting the maintenance to Giltrap Prestige during this time. This took the total mileage to 26,045 miles (41,907 kms) in May 2002.
Subsequently the car was stored away by the owner and used only sparingly in his leisure time, he only covered a further 6,700 miles in the car in his remaining 14 ½ years of ownership!
Finally parting with the car at the end of 2016, he exchanged it for a McLaren in New Zealand, which is also a brand represented by the Giltrap Group. Upon this exchange we agreed to purchase the car following an inspection by the Giltrap Group Porsche dealership in Auckland and some subsequent remedial work. The car then shipped back to us in the UK!!
Upon its arrival this side of the world we decided that we would like a second opinion and a full check over by our trusted friends at official Porsche Service Centre Brooklands. We also wanted to make sure the car was set up exactly how Porsche had intended. Brooklands set to work on the car, checking and adjusting the geometry and also addressing a list of minor issues that are common on a 20 year old car but not acceptable to us. We also had the clutch replaced with an original specification unit - the car left Brooklands feeling fantastic and is now ready to go to its new lucky keeper!!
Resplendent in Porsche’s Iris Blue Metallic, the car was factory optioned with the RSR style front & rear spoilers – these add to the overall look started by the lovely split rim “Speedline for Porsche” wheels, standard and distinctive to the model. Inside, this example is trimmed with black leather to its Sports Seats and was factory equipped with air conditioning – it also has a period correct Blaupunkt stereo fitted.
This is a rare opportunity to buy one of the most desirable Porsche 911 models in the world. On top of that the low mileage covered and condition inside and out, commensurate with that mileage, it makes a sound case either as a car to enjoy driving or to enjoy collecting. Surely a very safe investment with the low numbers produced. Presented today with its original handbook set, original sales brochure and a good history file.
This car remains VAT qualifying should that be of use to you - on a tax free basis the car is offered for £290,000 for export outside of the EC.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant
After years of planning 911 ownership I never thought I would end up with a Targa or a Tiptronic, but having tested many it works for me as the perfect compromise.
