The 997 is 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, sports suspension, and a sports exhaust.
The Carrera 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 will reach a top speed of 186mph.
Our vehicle was originally supplied by Porsche Centre Sheffield in March 2010 and has a large optional specification. It has covered a low mileage from new and is complete with full Porsche main dealer service history. Manual gearbox 997 cabriolets are difficult to find, so this will appeal to the Porsche purist that enjoys open-air motoring.
It is a truly immaculate example, which will be supplied with a full comprehensive 12-month warranty.
