Vehicle History


Full history of the car. Porsche history up to 87k, then independent specialists after. Whilst Ive had the car, I have largely done my own serving, with genuine Porsche filters. Car also has a K&N air filter, so never needs to be changed (only cleaned). Car is being sold now to finance a business venture, and would gladly buy the car back again in the future.
