Help finding very specific 993 C4 (R127 RRK)

Dear PCGB, 
I’m writing to ask for your help in tracking down a car once belonging to my father.It was a 1997 C4 in Arctic Silver with grey interior/dash, registration R127 RRK, originally purchased through AFN Chiswick, UK.Dad used the car daily, putting a lot of miles on it in the process, but it was always well maintained.He sold it to a colleague a number of years back, who in turn sold it on in the past couple of years.Dad has just turned 70 and was very fond of the car, and I’m wanting to track it down and hopefully, be able to buy it as a retirement gift for him.The car looks to be MOT'd and taxed but may have had a plate transfer in its time but I don’t know where to go from this point and am looking for help to find the current owner.I would be most grateful for any assistance.Kind regards,DCT

    send an e-mail to Maurice Piper who is register secretary for 993. He may be able to check if any member has the car. Whether he can give you the information I am not sure. Good luck with your hunt.

    Good Afternoon,
     
    I own this car and have done since 2011. I believe that your father's friend traded it in at Porsche Centre Silverstone in 2011, and I purchased it from them. I use it for my daily commute (Spring and Summer Months) and it is a fabulous example. 
    It did have complete mechanical restoration and engine rebuild in 2012 though, at considerable (albeit worthwhile) expense! It has now covered 177,000 miles, and 12,000 miles since rebuild. Feel free to get in touch. Kind Regards. ARW.

    The OP's last log on was back in Sept '15 so I doubt he comes back here to check for any response!  With that in mind I have e mailed to let him know of your post.

    I'm speeding because I have to get there before I forget where I'm going.

    Thanks ever so much. 👍
    That's a great Porsche collection that you have listed there. I'd like a 997 GTS myself. 
     
    Happy Easter, and thanks again for your assistance.

    Thank you!  We do try to help as well as police the forum!  Pleased to bring you two in contact.
    Her ladyship's 993, btw, is going if we can find a buyer.  Did the grand total of 150 miles last year - garage queen or what but at 48k miles only she is frightened to use it.......
