What We Like
Reportedly 70% of all Porsche sports cars are still on the road, reinforcing the Porsche philosophy that their cars are meant to be driven. This accident-free, 130k-mile 997 Carrera S is considered a launch-spec car and features driver-focused equipment such as a manual gearbox, the Sport Chrono Package Plus and heated 14-way Adaptive Sport Seats. A black full leather interior, self-dimming mirrors, and Bose sound system offer comfort while cruising. Modifications include a GT3-style front bumper, Boss audio head-unit, and 19-inch Avant Garde wheels. This black-on-black 997 is ready to head out in search of great driving roads with its next owner.
Vehicle History & Overview
Per the included accident-free Carfax report, this 997 was sold new to its first California-based owner in September 2004. The car subsequently spent time in Utah, Florida, North Carolina, and New York before being acquired by the selling dealer in June 2022. This 997 is considered a “launch-spec” car and came well-equipped with a full-leather interior, Sport Chrono Package Plus, Bose stereo, heated 14-way Adaptive Sport Seats, and more. Modifications include a GT3-style front bumper, 19-inch Avant Garde wheels, and a Boss Audio head-unit. One key and the owner’s manuals are included.
The 997-chassis Porsche 911 Carrera S was produced for the 2005-2012 model years and is regarded by many as a return-to-form for the modern 911. The 2005 “S” variant offered here received a larger 3.8L flat-six rated at 355 horsepower. That power is delivered through a 6-speed manual transaxle and distributed via an electronically assisted limited-slip differential. Porsche Stability Management helps keep things pointed in the right direction. The 997 blends modern technology with Porsche tradition to create a contemporary yet analog driving experience.
