The 997.2 Turbo’s Notoriety: The 997.2 generation Turbo denotes the very last of the 6-speed manual-equipped 911 Turbos with the 2013 model year signaling the end of the manual-operated 911 Turbo. The 991 Turbo’s transmission offering was only limited to PDK and the 992 Turbo will more than likely continue to utilize PDK. 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.
This wonderful Turbo displays an odometer reading of only 14,XXX miles, shows a Clean CARFAX Report, benefits from a recent and complete servicing rendered by Ryan Friedman Motorcars’ in-house Porsche Tech with 30 years of expertise (servicing specifics are available), and featured an original MSRP of $151,135 with a build sheet listing the following equipment: Dark Grey Natural Leather; Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV); Multi-stage Heating System for Front Seats; 19-inch 911 Turbo II Wheel; Wheel Caps with Colored Crest; Manual transmission; Dynamic Cornering Light; Bluetooth Interface for Mobile Phone; ParkAssist System; Sport Chrono Package Turbo Including Dynamic Engine Mounting; XM Radio; Six-Disc CD/DVD Auto-changer; Floor Mats in Interior Color; Universal Audio Interface; Leather Interior Natural Leather; Carrara White; Adaptive Sports Seats; Side Skirts Painted in Exterior Color; Headlight Cleaner cover in Exterior Color; Lower Part of Rear Apron in Exterior Color.
Upon viewing the Turbo’s aerodynamically optimized body, your presence is welcomed by its curve caressing Carrara White finish; front bumper boasting integrated and aesthetically unobstructive headlight washers, intake duct incorporated LED turn signals, compact fog lights that are aptly stationed on the bumper’s outermost region and a painted lip (the theme continues onto the side skirts and the lower region of the rear bumper); Bi-Xenon headlights; a sleek gas lid that’s understatedly incorporated into the right fender; 19-inch forged alloy Turbo II wheels completed in a two-tone finish (showcased in front of red brake calipers with white ‘Porsche’ script); the rear’s pronounced, muscular fenders that are accentuated by the model’s signature air intakes; a bi-plane rear spoiler featuring an automatically deploying top wing that raises at around 77 MPH and lowers at roughly 37 MPH; rear decklid located ‘turbo’ script in a bright finish; twin exhaust outlets that subtly protrudes from the distinctive, twin-vented, rear bumper.
Just before slipping inside of its dapper Dark Grey Natural Leather cabin, you’re first met by black door sills with ‘turbo’ insignia plated in brushed-look aluminum, and when inside one of the first things you’ll notice are the perforated Adaptive Sport seats that are further characterized by light-colored stitching, followed by supple leather that extends onto the upper dashboard/door and rear wall regions and you can expect to find Alcantara/aluminum/brushed aluminum/metallic-coated surfacing on select areas with carpeting completed in black. The driver is faced with a Alcantara and leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel; titanium-colored instrumentation dials; a centrally located dash-mounted SportChrono dial also with a titanium-colored finish; 6.5-inch touchscreen navigation display; the dazzling, 6-speed shifter offering clear-cut throws and possessing a gear lever design that’s native to the Turbo model and features an Alcantara adorned shift boot. Front occupants are embraced by front seats featuring memory settings for the driver and heating functionality for both occupants and can expect in-cabin audio playback via the BOSE Surround Sound System, featuring 13-speakers.
