Available for auction is this 2006 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S Cabriolet finished in Atlas Grey Metallic with a Matte Grey Wrap over a Black Leather interior. The 997 generation continues to gain popularity thanks to its blend of naturally aspirated flat-six power, engaging driving experience, and modern levels of comfort and usability. This 2006 example was acquired by the seller approximately two years ago, and was subsequently treated to over $12k in preventive service and repairs under their care. It comes factory equipped with the Sport Chrono Package Plus, the Bose High End Sound Package, the Power Seat Package, and more. This 997 now resides in California where it is being offered for auction showing approximately 80k miles on the odometer.
Four-wheel drive 997 models feature slightly widened bodywork when compared to two wheel drive models. This example is finished in Atlas Grey Metallic which is covered by a removable matte grey vinyl film. The power retractable cabriolet roof received new hydraulics earlier this year, and the black fabric shows signs of wear. A collection of detailed images can be found in the gallery. It rides on a set of 19” Sport Design wheels in black, which come dressed in a set of Michelin Pilot Sport tires bearing date codes from 2016. The CARFAX indicates damage to have occurred to the front end in 2011, however no additional information regarding this incident is available at this time.
The cabin is trimmed with black leather, with matching carpets. Amenities include Self Dimming Mirrors, Heated front seats, the Power Seat package, the Bose High End Sound package, and a Sport Shifter. An upgraded touch screen Pioneer head unit has been installed and adds AppleCarplay and Android Auto functionality. The seller notes that the cabin shows some scuffs and scrapes throughout, and confirms that all gauges, electronics and accessories are functional.
Power comes from a naturally aspirated 3.8 L flat-six engine that sends 355 HP 295 lb.-ft of torque to all four wheels by way of a desirable 6-speed manual transmission. The 4S comes standard with Porsche Active Suspension Management as well as the fixed 4-piston brakes of the 911 Turbo. The CARFAX report includes 22 service records dating as far back as 2006, and under current ownership the car has received annual oil and filter services, a new coolant reservoir, battery, engine mounts, transmission mount stops, spark plugs, ignition coils, brake booster vacuum line, alternator pulley, and flushes of the transmission, clutch, brake and differential fluids.
This sale will include a clean title. For those in search of a relatively affordable gateway into modern Porsche ownership, this 997 4S is not to be missed.
