NO RESERVE 2006 Porsche 997 Carrera S Cabriolet 6-Speed

Up for auction at no-reserve is this 2006 Porsche 997 Carrera S Cabriolet finished in Black over a black full leather interior.  The 997-generation Carrera S was debuted with a new 3.8L flat-six engine, and this 2006 example came generously optioned with a 6-speed manual transmission, the Sport Chrono Package Plus, Bose High-End Sound Package, Carbon Package, and Power Seat Package as well as several features from Porsche’s Exclusive Department including a Sport Shifter, Porsche crested headrests, and seatbelts in Guards Red.  It was sold from Champion Porsche in Florida at an original cost of over $102k and was equipped with an upgraded Tubi exhaust system and lowering springs when new.  A nicely presented driver-grade example with approximately 77k miles showing on the odometer, this 997 Carrera S Cabriolet is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Tennessee.

This Carrera S is finished in Black with a matching black cabriolet top.  Large Tubi quad exhaust tips can be seen in the rear as well as red brake calipers tucked behind the 19” Carrera S wheels.  CARFAX reports front-end damage to have occurred in 2017 and the seller notes that the front bumper, fenders, and hood have been previously refinished.  The headlights, fog lights, and factory-applied paint protection film exhibit signs of age, and the seller reports several scratches and cosmetic imperfections throughout the exterior.  Additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with a CARFAX report.  The wheels come dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires dated from 2017 in front and 2020 in the rear.

Inside, this 997 highlights a premium black full leather interior with the optional Carbon Package, Bose High-End Sound Package, Power Seat Package, and Sport Chrono Package Plus.  Exclusive Guards Red seatbelts are also equipped along with Porsche crested headrests and a Sport Shifter.  Self-dimming mirrors were optioned from the factory, and an upgraded Pioneer touchscreen head unit has been installed.  The climate control switch material shows typical signs of degradation, and the seller reports some general signs of wear throughout the cabin including light sun damage on the upper door panels.  All gauges and accessories are stated to be fully functional.

This first-generation 997 Carrera S is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.8L flat-six engine that generates up to 355 HP and 295 lb.-ft of torque stock.  A 6-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels, allowing this Cabriolet to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in approximately 4.7 seconds.  The optional Sport Chrono Package allows the driver to adjust performance and suspension characteristics, while the upgraded Tubi exhaust system provides a more aggressive tone.  Lowering springs have also been equipped for improved handling and a more attractive stance.  Some routine maintenance history is shown on CARFAX and the seller reports that recent service has been carried out including an oil and filter change, convertible top repair, and installation of new hood struts.

This sale will include the original manuals and owner's booklet, a set of two keys, and a clean title. Offered at no reserve, this 2006 example offers a fantastic opportunity for any enthusiast looking to get behind the wheel of a 6-speed Porsche 997.

    @Tomstoy Ride is a little stiffer but not much...essentially the springs were installed to lower the car. The factory adjustable dampening still works. The Tubi pretty much sounds like the factory sport exhaust open. It sounds this way all the time. No annoying drone at cruising speeds though. The adjustable valves are removed with the factory mufflers. Hope this helps!

    How is the ride vs stock? How do the lowered springs affect the stock adjustable suspension capability? How does the Tubi Exhaust affect the stock baffles for the exhaust is is no longer adjustable? More or less does any of those things that are stock work now and if so what is difference?

    Miles is a top notch seller!! I recently fulfilled a dream and purchased a really well kept 997 S cab from him. He was, and continues to be, extremely responsive and helpful. I have had a great time with my new pcar. Buy with confidence.

  • Miles.S (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @luis.seneriz That would be a wonderful drive! It would have no issues

  • Tgilbert (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    It's a good looking driver, just a note regarding the paint protection film removal. It is quite likely removing the film will pull off the paint when the film is being removed. Ask me how I know...

  • luis.seneriz (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    I drove my 996 all the way from Wisconsin 1300 miles to Katy Texas. Any reason why I couldn’t do the same with this car if I’m the winning bidder. It’s an awesome way to get to know the car.

  • Miles.S (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @luis.seneriz Ill get a video uploaded the Tubi sounds great as well. Overrev report on the way. I am away from the shop today but hopefully back this evening. Thanks! Miles

  • luis.seneriz (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Miles I’m interested in the car I own a 3/98 996 coupe 6 spd with 408s. Anyway I think a cold start video and also a durametric over rev report should help. Thanks

    @luis.seneriz this car does have the larger IMS bearing. It is the best bearing Porsche used. They did make a hardtop for these car however not nearly as common as the 996 because the 996 hardtop was standard equipment. The 997 made it an optional item

  • luis.seneriz (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Do they make a hard top for this car? I know that they do for 996's. Does this car has the larger IMS bearing?

  • Miles.S (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @stupendous Definitely no structural damage from the accident. I have been around and under the car several times. The accident listed on the Carfax is most certainly minor. Carfax will list when the car was towed or if the air bags deployed and neither happened in this case. Not a lot of knowledge on the maintenance history and the Carfax does not show much. The 60k service should have included fluids/filters and plugs. I inspected the car at my shop but did not have a formal PPI performed.

  • Miles.S (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @superfly I will get back to you tomorrow with the engine number. It is possible to remove the damaged PPF, just tedious. I am guessing it would be couple hundred at a respectable detailer. I have owned the car for about 2 months now. Since I am a dealer, my ownership doesnt actually show up on the Carfax. Thanks! Ill report back

  • stupendous (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Follow up. Was a PPI ever done for this car? Thanks

  • stupendous (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Hello @Miles.S Would you know what the accident was? Was there any structural damage? Is there anything mechanical that needs to be done in the next few months? The Carfax report does not seem to have too much detail? The last big service was at 60k miles - do you know if that was done properly? Thanks!

  • superfly (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Seller, can you provide the engine number please? Also, can you post photos of all of the maintenance / repair records that you do have? Are you Owner 3 that bought the car in 2007, or are you Owner 4? If so, when did you buy it? Have you gotten any estimates for removal of the damaged protective film? Is that even possible with damaging the paint severely? Thanks

  • Miles.S (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @82turbouf The front hood and bumper have been repainted. There are some cosmetics around the car but overall the paint shines up well and it is a very presentable car. I have records for the basic servicing that I performed on the car however, do not have records prior to my ownership. The car drives out really strong and transmission shifts well.

  • Miles.S (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Hi all, Wanted to check in and introduce myself. Please let me know if there are any questions or requests. It is located in Knoxville TN at my shop and shipping can be arranged Worldwide. -Miles

  • 82turboruf (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    What was repainted or touched up on the body?
    Any records on engine services?
