Finished in the attractive combination of Atlas Grey Metallic over a Sea Blue full leather interior, this 2006 Porsche 997 Carrera S Cabriolet was ordered at an original sticker price of over $104k with options including the Sport Chrono Package Plus, Power Seat Package, stainless-steel exhaust tips, and Bose High-End Sound Package. It has been garage-kept by its owner and maintained with replacements of the water pump, spark plugs, clutch, and service of the convertible top. Showing approximately 53k miles on the odometer, this 6-speed Carrera S is now being offered for auction out of Georgia.

This 997 is finished in Atlas Grey Metallic with a Metropol Blue cabriolet roof and features stainless-steel exhaust pipes as an exclusive factory option. Compared to a base Carrera, the “S” model receives quad-tipped exhaust outlets and upgraded red-painted brake calipers. The seller notes the convertible top mechanism was serviced with new arms and fluid in 2018, and the wheels are dressed in Pirelli and Michelin tires showing production codes 4410 and 2216 respectively. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The cabin features premium Sea Blue full leather upholstery with matching carpets and optional heated power seats. Other options include navigation and telephone modules for PCM, a telephone handset, and the Bose High-End Sound Package. The optional Sport Chrono Package Plus also adds a lap timer stopwatch to the central dashboard. The seller notes a LoJack vehicle recovery system has been installed, although not yet activated, and the windshield washer pump needs to be replaced.

A naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six engine delivers up to 355 HP and 295 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. Acceleration from 0-60 MPH occurs in less than 5 seconds and the optional Sport Chrono Package Plus allows the driver to enhance performance capabilities and stiffen the active suspension (PASM) with the press of a button. The seller reports that annual oil changes and inspections have been observed, the water pump and clutch were replaced in 2016, and the spark plugs were replaced in 2017.

This sale will include a clean title and the original window sticker.

    Nice. I always want to see a DME report also, @155MPH, as it eases my mind. Yet I sometimes have to remind myself that I can take certain things with a grain of salt too, and this is my friendly reminder of how to do the math.. I should prob spend more time asking for cylinder bore scoring reports or something huh.. cheers.. GLWS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWp50KVZFq0

    @DEACS911 The phone holder will remain if you remove the phone. You may need a mechanic to remove the phone holder. However, I think it is a neat vintage thing to leave it there, because anyone who sat in the Porsche first noticed the phone and they liked it. Just FYI

  • DEACS911 (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    What would be left if the phone as removed as far as marks or damage?

    @Ilikeporsches It is not leather. It is the wire at the bottom of the phone where the sleeve is cut to expose the wires.
    If you put a SIM in the SIM socket the phone will work.

    @Fipenna
    No. I don't think so. But it has been inspected yearly and the technician did not see any issues, otherwise he would have informed me.

    Hi, super-nice 997 with good mileage. Have you recently checked for any evidence of bore scoring? Or done an internal cylinder check thru cameras?

    If serious you can look at the car but will need to go thru the bidding process.

    To bid you need to have an account on PCarmarket, which you seem to have. Go to the car you want to bid. There is a button "PLACE BID". Click on that and you will see a form to put your bid.

  • DannyG123 (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    I'm not very tech savvy at all. I'm interested in the car. I live close by too. Is it possible to look at car? It will not let me message you

  • DannyG123 (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    How do I go about bidding or buying this car? And is it possible to see the vehicle in person first?

  • rmasoor (seller) 1 yearago

    Dear Porsche enthusiasts, This is Ram and I am here to sell my beloved 2006 Porsche Carrera S Cabrio. I have owned it for about 11 years and have taken care of it like a member of the family. Annual oil change and inspections, frequent cleaning and waxing, drive for pleasure not on track. Runs great, feels good, especially with top down. I have provided as much details as I can but if you need more please contact me and I will answer to the best of my knowledge. Thank you all. Ran

  • rmasoor (seller) 1 yearago

    I have documentation of yearly oil change and inspections, 2014 -present done by Porsche mechanic.

  • 155MPH (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    @georgeD33. there is a stack of receipts showing in the one picture, the top one being an express oil change. That said, no telling what/when/how many were done. Seems they may not have been done by a Porsche certified shop.

  • 155MPH (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    I wish it was standard procedure to include a DME report with all manual 911's.

  • GeorgeD33 (registered bidder) 1 yearago

    Do you have the documentation to show that the annual oil changes were observed?
