996 40th Anniversary Number 1258 (2004)


996 40 Jahre Anniversary Edition 6 speed manual transmission. Number 1258 of 1963 units worldwide and 1 of approx 200 UK RHD examples. Without doubt and by some considerable margin, the finest example we’ve seen. A not to be repeated car and as such an opportunity to be seized. Supplied new by Porsche Centre Swindon and first registered 02/06/2004. This 2 owner car was bequeathed by the orignal owner to his godson in the event of his passing in 2018. Like the car the supporting history file is unparalleled in painting a picture of the owners, their relationship with the car and the manner in which it was cared for.

The history file comes complete not only with the original bill of sale for this car but for each and every Porsche the Godfather owned from his first in 1983 through to the Anniversary he acquired in the summer of 2004. There is a handwritten log book in which every journey made has received special mention with comments on the weather the distance, the intended destination, fuel consumption and traffic conditions. There are a series of lovely photographs of the owner outside Dick Lovett in Swindon with the various Porsche cars he purchased from them over the years. In addition we have each and every service invoice, each and every MOT. The original service book, manuals and wallet with all appropriate keys. One talks of provenance and service history. Simply put we’ve never seen the like.

Bodywork, wheels and interior all present in Concours condition and the underside of the car really is something else. Absolutely spotless and almost indistinguisable from new.
