On picking the car up I wasn’t disappointed. Everything was as it had been described. So I got straight into it and drove home. What a drive put a smile on my face.
Thanks very much Trade Classics and I’m now looking out for my next classic to add to the collection.”.

Alfred is a huge Porsche fan. He describes himself as liking a thrill – you can see how when he puts his foot down in the ‘On the Road video’. He has owned at least one Porsche for the last 30 years and has loved every second of it. Between owning his second and third Porsche he regrettably owned a Golf and couldn’t handle not having a Porsche, so he was straight back on the phone with his local Porsche dealership.
Please watch the ‘Meet the Owner’ video to see more about how Alfred has spent the last couple decades adoring Porsches, here at Trade Classics we know exactly how he feels. Our consigner Stuart thoroughly enjoyed riding alongside Alfred and we are sure that the new owner will find it just as pleasurable.
Alfred will be sad to see a car he has loved driving for so many years leave his ownership. He is selling the Porsche as he now has a Fiat 500 ‘Abarth’ that is more suited to his lifestyle.
This Porsche looks absolutely stunning in dark blue and seamlessly fits into the British landscape. Please make sure you take a look at all the images and videos in this listing – you won’t be disappointed in the quality or drive-ability of this stunning and affordable 911.
Wheels & Tyres
The wheels are fitted with 5-spoke 4S wheels that are original and in excellent condition. The centre caps have been replaced. These alloys show off the beautiful red disc brakes that add an eye-catching contrast to the overall look of the vehicle. The tyres are Bridgestone Potenza which also look in excellent condition.
The bodywork is in excellent condition. It is worth noting that there is a small bubbling effect on the A-pillar – offside of the car. Please review the photos and the ‘Exterior Review’ video.
We at Trade Classics want to keep this for ourselves. Like we said earlier, the blue colour of the car just looks stunning on a cold day in Scotland and we know it will look beautiful at any time on the British roads. The are a few minor defects such as a small chip on the bonnet that can be seen in the photos and videos – expected with the age of the vehicle.
Glass and Trim
Both are in excellent condition across the car.
The golden leather interior adds another dimension to what is already a beautiful example of a 911 (996). The sporty outside elegantly clashes with the more classy interior. As you sit in the driver’s seat be prepared to really feel the road as you will be low down with the rear engine behind you propelling you forwards – a fantastic experience. We were really impressed with the condition Alfred has kept his 911 over the last decade – please see all the images and videos to take a look for yourself.
Seats and Carpets
The seats are in really good condition and fully functional electrically. The carpets are also in excellent condition, exactly what you would expect from a diligent owner such as Alfred.
All the gauges and rest of the dashboard are in excellent condition. Speakers are also fitted in the corners of the dashboard adding to a clearer sound from the stereo.
Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
Both are in excellent condition with no issues.
As mentioned, Stuart, our consigner, had the pleasure of riding alongside Alfred in the ‘Meet the Owner’ and ‘On the Road’ videos – he was seriously impressed by the performance of this vehicle. At one point he definitely shouted ‘accelerating’ with pure excitement. He tested the functionality of the vehicle being driven on the road at various speeds and we have seen no issue with the car during our inspection, just satisfaction.
Engine and Gearbox
The car started first go from cold – (see the cold start video). The engine soon settled into a smooth tick over. The engine is the original 3.6L that makes a beautiful, authentic sound. The gearbox is automatic that effortlessly creates a more pleasurable ride.
Suspension and Brakes
During our ‘On the Road’ road video, the car handled well and – just as you’d expect. One thing to note is Stuart noticed a slight noise coming from the front of the vehicle on rougher roads (most likely to be a suspension bush) – but when at speed the noise diminished.
What a fantastic drive this really is. As you can see, Alfred is not afraid of putting his foot down and we heard or saw nothing that was a cause for concern. The 4-wheel drive really keeps you glued down to the road in a low profile view that will make you feel electric.
Electrics and Other
All the electrics were working as expected upon our inspection. It is worth noting that Alfred assures us that this is still the case. The very good history of the vehicle will tell you what has been repaired over time and is a testament to Alfred for supplying us with such a good record.

HPi Check Results
– HPi clear – an HPi check was actioned by ourselves.
This is an opportunity not to miss. If you love a 911 and want one at an affordable price then this is the car for you. We enjoyed spending time with Alfred and getting to know why he loves Porsches so much. He chose our service as he knows that we will find it a new owner that will care for it as much as he has. Be ready for this to go ‘auction live’, we know others are waiting.
Alfred has priced this car very competitively as he knows the market and is sad to see this car go. But he is excited in downsizing and trying out the new ‘Abarth’ he has just acquired.
This listing was written from information supplied by Stuart after meeting Alfred the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.
