This C4S was delivered new at Princeton Porsche in New Jersey and sold to its first owner in Maryland, who owned the car from new until 2013. The vehicle covered just 1,125 miles during this seven-year span. The car was then sold to its second and most recent owner in 2013 and housed in Palm Desert, California. The car spent the last nine years with the second owner and accumulated the rest of its 6,900 miles on fair weather days.
This 997 is finished in Arctic Silver with a black leather interior. Silver gauges and a Sport Chrono package with a color-matched center console round out the interior. The exterior is essentially flawless with optional Sport Design wheels with colored crests that provide a wonderful aesthetic.
The car is equipped with a 3.8-liter water-cooled flat-six that produces 355 horsepower mated to a six-speed manual transmission that delivers excellent power and is terrific to drive.

The 997, in our opinion, is rapidly becoming a modern classic. The 997 is the last generation of fairly analog 911s with hydraulic steering racks that provide excellent driver feedback. The 997 is also the last 911 with a small footprint before the longer wheelbase GT-focused 991s were introduced. This 997 will provide its new owner with an as-new experience and is the perfect example for someone that likes to drive with the top down and prefers a manual gearbox. Don’t miss this stunning C4S.
