My name is JellyBean and I am a 1999 Porsche 911 of the 996 generation and I am looking for a new good home. I am well behaved and don’t break down, I don’t leave oil messes and I love daily driving duties. But also have a little bit of wild in my as any 911 should, I enjoy windy roads and using my rear engine weight to have a blast.
I started life in Queensland, which may be why I was ordered as a convertible in the rare Jade Ocean colour with tan interior, I have extended leather and a tiptronic transmission to make life a little more cruiser. In 2017 I was purchased by my current owner who lives down the south end of the country and made that run down in a weekend without missing a beat! My seats are so good that my new owner got out of the car after that drive and was ready to do it again straight away! In my life in Queensland I did suffer an engine failure at about 30,000km, so have a new engine with an updated IMS bearing identified by TD Automotive. I have also had a front end bump, which sees me having some repairs but these were noted as “very good repair with all Porsche parts” as part of that same inspection.
Since coming down my new owner has:
· Replaced suspension bump stops front
· Replaced missing rubber bushes around the car
· Replaced various grommets in the wheel arches
· Engine oil/filter
· Transmission oil/filter
· Pollen filter
· Air intake filter
· Replaced inner drive shaft boots
· Replaced pads and disks all around
· Replaced fuel cap solenoid as it was nosy
· Replaced indicator stalks to fix non cancelling issue
· Replaced spark plugs x 6
· Replaced RHS spark plug tubes
· Replaced RHS rear clam hinge
· Replaced LHS convertible flap
· Replaced rear clam latch cover
· Fixed broken tensioner inside convertible top
· Replaced the space saver spare
· Replaced convertible latch hook cover
· Replaced arm rest storage bin hinge
· New rear tyres
· Upgraded seats to have 2 stage heating function
· Upgraded head unit to android (Bluetooth, USB input, off navigation option, etc)

I am used 2-3 times a week in daily driving duties and never miss a beat! But that has resulted in a few car park scratches/door dints. 1 on the RHS front fender, 1 on the LHS side door and one on the rear bumper RHS. While none are significant or take away from my gorgeous colour and shape I am being honest in my condition.
I do throw a code on my transmission to do with a solenoid, it is a known issue with the ZF gearboxes in the early boxsters / 911s which can fixed by replacing 1 solenoid which is not a big deal. It causes no issues in operation and if read various forums some Porsche and independents choose to leave until they next do the transmission fluid as you need to remove the transmission sump to get at it.
I am an honest, 150,000km 1999 Porsche 911 which is appreciating in value but in a position to be used without fear in daily duties and also for weekend runs into the hills, to the country and along the coast. Being a convertible with hardtop I offer the best of both worlds, interested give my current owner a call as I am only being sold as they have a job overseas next year.
