Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe (997) (2005)

You can drive this car in Europe (permission required) International licence accepted Airport drop off available

The Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe (997) is an iconic model from the Porsche garage and following it's introduction in 2004 (released as a 2005 model year), it took the previous 996 and moved the 911 up another gear.

On paper, the 3.8 litre Flat 6 looks pretty tame when compared to the 5.0 litre+ Italian counterparts but the masters at Porsche manage to squeeze every ounce of performance from the engine and that 350bhp figure feels more like 400bhp+ in reality.

The Porsche 911 is an everyday supercar and very easy to master, even after only a few minutes of stepping out of your own road car. The steering is very precise and you have great faith that the car will stay planted on the road, unlike some of the power house, rear wheel drive models from Italy. The engine note is crisp, burbles on tick-over, and the styling and build quality is a marked improvement on the previous 996. Power delivery through the gears is more responsive and smoother than the 996 and Porsche afictionados were all in agreement that the release of the 997 brought the 911 back into the game.

At £270+VAT per day, the Porsche 911 Coupe gives you the opportunity to join the supercar club at an entry level price but with performance and handling which is up there with cars 3-4 times the hire price. An iconic model which has been around since 1963 and evolved with each subsequent release. The design may have changed very little over the years but it's what's underneath that deserves the ultimate respect.

The Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe (997) is available for immediate hire and readily available from the Bristol area to service Bristol Airport, Cardiff, Bath and similar local regions. A nationwide delivery/collection service is also available to accommodate the rest of the UK.
