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.
