Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 1974, the first-ever 911 Turbo would forge a unique path to deliver astonishing acceleration and top speed figures while utilizing just 3.0-liters of displacement to turn the sportscar world on its head. Still in its infancy in 1974, Porsche would continue to evolve turbocharger technology alongside their always-improving 911 before the 997-generation 911 Turbo would launch in 2006. Utilizing Variable Turbine Geometry, this revolution in turbocharging allowed for more power, more torque, and less fuel to produce an incredible 500-horsepower from only 3.8-liters. Utilizing all-wheel drive and crucially available with a manual transmission, 997 Turbo models were capable of 0-60 in an astonishing 3.7 seconds.
Finished in a striking Speed Yellow exterior, this 911 Turbo is equipped with twin-spoke forged Turbo II wheels along with tasteful styling upgrades to help separate Turbo models which Porsche would call “dynamic without being fussy.” Featuring the optional Sport Chrono package with dynamic engine mounts, this option includes a digital and analog stopwatch on the dashboard, a personal memory function within the Porsche Communication Management (PCM), and a Sport button allowing for Launch Control and ‚overboost‘. Currently equipped with an aftermarket flat-bottom steering wheel with yellow twelve o’clock marker, a factory style steering wheel is also included. Adaptive Sport Seats trimmed in Sea Blue leather are equipped with optional heating while instrument dials in Speed Yellow not only match the exterior but also provide a vibrant contrast.
As the final year of 997.1 production, this 2009 911 Turbo not only features a Mezger engine, but the six-speed manual transmission as well. It also features Porsche Communication Management (PCM) version 3.0 versus version 2.1 used on the previous 2007 and 2008 models. Offered with 36,323 miles at the time of cataloging, this Turbo comes complete with a clean Carfax report indicating just two previous owners with the first caretaker owning this car for approximately eleven years. As one of just 321 Turbos produced for 2009 in Coupe configuration, this car, with its desirable six-speed manual and uncommon color combination, features an unmatched combination of performance and if desired, everyday usability.
