16k-Mile 2007 Porsche 997 Turbo 6-Speed

Now up for auction is this 2007 Porsche 997 Turbo Coupe finished in GT Silver Metallic.  Featuring a twin-turbocharged Mezger engine paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, this 997 Turbo also came optioned with a limited-slip differential, the Sport Chrono Package, and a Grey Natural Leather interior with Sport Seats, painted trim, silver seatbelts, and other Exclusive details.  It has also been upgraded with a high-performance Maxflo sports exhaust and air intake system along with quad Fabspeed exhaust tips.  It was purchased by the current owner in June of 2015 with less than 1k miles driven since. Previously listed on PCARMARKET, the owner has recently addressed an erroneous CARFAX mileage discrepancy and the car is now being offered for auction once again out of New Jersey while showing just over 16k miles on the odometer.

This 997 comes finished in GT Silver Metallic and features Turbo-specific front and rear bumpers as well as wide fenders with rear side air intakes.  The seller notes that the finish has been preserved with clear paint protective film applied over the hood, front bumper, mirror housings, and rear fenders.  Additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.  This 997 retains its factory 19” Turbo wheels that are currently dressed in older Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires.

Inside, this Turbo has been appointed with a premium Grey Natural Leather interior featuring a GT Silver Metallic painted rear center console, instrument surround, belt outlet trims, air vent slats, and PCM package.  Other details include Exclusive silver seatbelts, door finishers in leather, an aluminum footrest, a thicker leather steering wheel, Sport Shifter, Sport Seats, and aluminum inlays for the gear knob and handbrake lever.  An image of the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity is provided in the gallery listing an original MSRP of over $138k.

This first-generation 997 Turbo is equipped with a race-derived 3.6L flat-six Mezger engine with twin Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) turbochargers, producing an output of up to 480 HP and 460 lb.-ft of torque stock.  All four wheels are driven through a 6-speed manual transmission providing for a 0-60 time of approximately 3.5 seconds and a top speed over 190 MPH.  An optional limited-slip differential is equipped along with the Sport Chrono Package which allows the Turbo to overboost for ten seconds to achieve an increase in peak torque over a certain RPM range.  This example has also been upgraded with a high-performance Maxflo sports exhaust and air intake system at a cost of over $18k for increased performance and sound.  The seller reports that the car has only ever required standard routine maintenance throughout their ownership with the most recent service performed by The Popular Mechanic including an oil and filter change, battery replacement, and a new hydraulic pressure accumulator for the clutch. A corresponding invoice and DME report are provided for reference in the photo gallery.

This sale will include a set of two keys, owner's manuals, some invoices, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and a clean title. With its low mileage, 6-speed manual gearbox, and tasteful specifications, this 2007 example is a perfect choice for any driver in search of a 997 Turbo.

    @artichoke The car has been kept in my garage and only taken out locally on nice days.

  • artichoke (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    Has the car been stored since 2016? There were almost no additional miles logged in 5 years.

  • Jimmychristy (seller) 1 week, 5 daysago

    @dtchild1 Hi, I wanted to let you know that I just posted a video of start up/idle/ revs. Enjoy!

  • Jimmychristy (seller) 1 week, 5 daysago

    @Jet2jeff2 Just posted 4 more pics of underside. Hope this helps

  • Jimmychristy (seller) 1 week, 6 daysago

    @Pocket66s True about the CARFAX with respect to number of owners. I guess yet another clerical error. With respect to California smog laws I really have no idea.
    The video of the startup /exhaust will be coming soon!

  • Pocket66s (registered bidder) 1 week, 6 daysago

    @Jimmychristy, nice car !
    Curious about another item on the carfax. Since you bought it in 2015, should it now show 2 owners? Seems from history on carfax the dealer had it for a year starting in 2014 and somehow put 3000 mi on it before your purchase. Am I reading it right?
    Look forward to video of car with exhaust. Would you or anyone know if it will pass CA smog with the upgraded exhaust?

  • Jimmychristy (seller) 2 weeksago

    @groach Actually correcting the CarFax mistakes was pretty straightforward. I just explained the errors and presented them with my correct CarFax from 2015 along with the DME report. It was quite obvious that clerical errors had been made. With respect to the High Output tune I really don't have any other information.

  • groach (registered bidder) 2 weeksago

    @Jimmychristy. That’s great that you got the CarFax cleared up; I’ve heard it’s not easy to get them to correct their mistakes.
    The XX Tuning receipt pictured indicates that they did a High Output tune along with the exhaust and intake. Do you have any more info on that (other than the car is crazy fast). Thanks

  • Jimmychristy (seller) 2 weeksago

    @dtchild1 I will try to get that on as soon as I can

  • dtchild1 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Any chance you could post a video of the car idling and some revs so we can hear the exhaust? I am curious how loud it truly is.

    Hello. What does number of ignitions range 1 787 mean please. I watched videos on this etc. and I’m still not fully knowledgeable knowledgeable

  • Jimmychristy (seller) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    @Jet2jeff2 I will try to get better pics of the underside mechanicals. I don’t have a lift so bear with me. I do not have the original intake system. I bought the car in 2015 with the modifications as you see.

  • Jet2jeff2 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Please post clear pictures of underneath the car’s mechanicals.
    Do you have the parts to reinstall the original intake system?

  • Jimmychristy (seller) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    With respect to the CARFAX , I cleared up the discrepancies that were seen in the mileages reported. They seemed to be just simple clerical errors which were removed.

  • Jimmychristy (seller) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    Hello everyone. My name is Jim and welcome to my auction. If there are any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. I am available to answer anything that comes up. Happy bidding!
