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 staggeringly phenomenal Turbo displays an odometer reading of just 11,XXX miles, shows a Clean CARFAX Report, and featured an original MSRP of $147,020 with a build sheet listing the following equipment: Limit Slip Rear Different Lock; Carpet in deviating color; Heated Seats (Front); WhlCtrsw/FullcolorPorscheCrest; Bi-Xenon headlights incl. PDLS; SportChrPkgTurbo-w/DynEngMount; XM(R) Satellite Radio Receiver; Leather Inter Pkg 2-Tone Combo; Black; Black/Terracotta Interior; Adapt Sport Seat Leath DrivMem; Center Console Paint Ext Color; Porsche Crest Emboss Headrest; Logo on Center Console.
Upon viewing the Turbo’s aerodynamically optimized body, your presence is welcomed by its understated and very attractive Black finish that suits the Turbo’s “svelte meets muscularity” body in a sensual and captivating manner and what’s even more alluring is its gorgeous Terracotta interior hitting against the exterior, providing for a prepossessing visual; front bumper boasting integrated and aesthetically unobstructive headlight washers, intake duct incorporated LED turn signals and compact fog lights that are aptly stationed on the bumper’s outermost region; 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) with center caps in color; 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; twin exhaust outlets that subtly protrudes from the distinctive, twin-vented, rear bumper.
