Up for auction is this 2005 Porsche 997 Carrera Coupe finished in Midnight Blue Metallic over a Stone-Grey leather interior. This first-generation 997 was originally sold from the iconic Brumos Porsche dealership in Florida with premium options including the Bose High-End Sound Package, heated front seats, and Bi-Xenon headlamp package. It was purchased by its current owner about 2 years ago at 56k miles benefitting from the recent installation of a direct oil feed IMS bearing upgrade. It has since been treated to some noteworthy upkeep including a recent 60k mile service at an authorized Porsche dealership. It is now being offered by its seller in Texas while showing approximately 63k miles on the odometer.
The Midnight Blue Metallic finish is said to be beautifully presented, having been regularly detailed under the current ownership (images are provided in the photo gallery). This Carrera is equipped with Bi-Xenon headlights and factory 5-spoke wheels that were dressed in new tires at the time of seller purchase 2 years ago.
Inside, you will find a Stone-Grey leather interior said to be in fantastic shape with only typical signs of wear on some of the buttons. Represented by an $80k factory specification sheet, this Carrera features the Bose High-End Sound Package, Power Seat Package, a 6-disc remote CD changer, heated seats, the Park Assist System, and brand-new OEM floor mats installed by the current owner. An OEM Porsche sunshade will also accompany the sale along with an OEM car cover. The cabin is described to be entirely stock and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
For the inaugural year of the 997, this Carrera was equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.6 L flat-six engine producing 325 HP and 272 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed Tiptronic S automatic allowing for a 0-60 time of approximately 5.3 seconds. Proper maintenance is said to have been observed throughout the lifetime of the vehicle including a critical direct oil feed (DFI) upgrade for the IMS bearing at the time of the seller’s purchase. A comprehensive 60k mile service was carried out recently in 2020 by Porsche Dallas, and the seller reports this 997 to be in excellent mechanical order.
This sale will be accompanied by a set of 2 keys, original books, tools, an OEM car cover, OEM sunshade, a clean title (lien), and all records from the current owner (as well as some from the previous owners).
