Presenting the chance in taking ownership of a spectacular and incredibly rare 997.2 Turbo cabriolet configured in a manner that positions it in being a true 1 of 1 specimen. Let’s magnify how rare this particular example is, with a model year that started in 2010 and concluded in 2013, only 488 997.2 N.A market Turbos were equipped with a manual transmission. Out of those 488 units, only 7 were painted in Aqua Blue. Out of the 7, only 5 came with a Black Full Leather interior. Within the 5 that were configured in this manner, this example is the only one to be factory outfitted with PCCBs (and also the center-lock wheels, and other highly desirable options). The unicorn practically jumps out of this exceptional o n e of o n e cabriolet. You have the opportunity in taking ownership of something very rare and profoundly special, don’t fumble your opportunity.
The Rarity Of Aqua Blue Metallic: Initially offered in the late 2000s, Aqua Blue is one of the rarest new-age blue hues to be featured on the 911 Turbo, as only 27 N.A market 997.1 Turbos were factory fastened in this color with only 12 N.A market 997.2 Turbos having been enrobed in the shade. It’s a striking color that is very hard to come by and in conjunction with a manual transmission, the elusiveness is only heightened.
The 997.2 Turbo’s Notoriety: Its model year denotes the very last of the 6-speed manual-equipped 911 Turbo with the following model year signaling the end of the manual-operated 911 Turbo. The 991 Turbo’s transmission offering was only limited to PDK and the upcoming 992 Turbo will 99.9% follow this formula as well. Not only are its successors lacking a manual transmission, but the 991s and 992 911s lack the preferable sizing that this example offers as it’s really the last of the svelte-shaped and “right-sized” Turbos that are inline to the original 911 Turbo’s (930) design philosophy.
The Significance Of Its $8,840 Optioned PCCBs: Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) is an option that isn’t too frequently seen on the non-Turbo S 911. Some of the added benefits of having PCCBs include a braking system that’s much lighter than the standard steel setup, which in turn aids in a heighten handling and ride quality experience; shorter stopping distances that are even more impressive at higher speeds; and little to no brake dust!
