Up for auction is this 2005 Porsche 997 Carrera Cabriolet presented in GT Silver Metallic over a Black leather interior. This first generation 997 offers a 3-spoke Sport steering and power-operated heated seats as well as an aggressive stance achieved by way of H&R lowering springs and aftermarket wheels. Reported to be in excellent driving order while showing just over 41,000 miles on the odometer, this Carrera Cabriolet is now being offered by its seller in Ohio accompanied by the original window sticker and a Clean Carfax report.
The timeless GT Silver Metallic finish on this 997 is said to be in great shape with minimal signs of road going wear (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). Aftermarket H&R springs provide a lowered ride height which compliment the aftermarket polished multi-spoke wheels with colored Porsche crests.
The Black standard leather interior is reported to be in very good condition, although the soft-touch console buttons are noted to be sticky from degradation. Factory options listed on the $86k window sticker include a 3-spoke Sport steering wheel, power operated and heated front seats and a remoted 6-disc CD changer. All gauges and accessories are stated to be fully functional.
