The 997 was the most commercially successful Porsche 911 of all time. The styling harked back to the revered Porsche 993 era and was widely acclaimed by seasoned Porsche enthusiasts. The much-loved oval-shaped headlights returned, and the interior was re-designed with new controls, more reminiscent of the classic 911 interiors. The body shape remained low profile, with a drag coefficient of just 0.29 for the Carrera. The 3,800cc Carrera S version offered additional power from its larger engine, and included a higher level of standard specification.
The Carrera 3.8 S model was revised in 2008, and gained a new direct fuel injection 3,800cc engine which produced 385 HP, a revised suspension, revised styling, new HID projector headlamps, touch-screen navigation and Bluetooth telephony. It can travel from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 186mph. Certainly roof-down motoring apace.
Our car was supplied new by Porsche Centre Leicester in January 2009 and comes complete with a full Porsche dealer service history (6 stamps), handbook pack, and naturally the spare remote key. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a 997 Carrera 4S Cabriolet in a classic colour combination. It will also be supplied with a comprehensive 12-month warranty.
