29k-Mile 2007 Porsche 997 Carrera S Cabriolet 6-Speed

We are pleased to offer this 2007 Porsche 997 Carrera S Cabriolet finished in Midnight Blue Metallic over a Sand Beige full leather interior.  One of the most increasingly desirable 911 models on the market, this first-generation 997 Carrera S was configured at an original cost of over $106k with options including the Sport Chrono Package Plus, supple leather seats, the Bose High-End Sound Package, 19” Carrera Classic wheels, and a 6-speed manual transmission.  Showing a consistent service history on CARFAX, this 997 is now being offered for auction by its 3rd owner out of New York with approximately 29k miles showing on the odometer.

This 997 is finished in Midnight Blue Metallic with a Metropol Blue cabriolet top.  Clear paint protection film has been applied over the forward half of the front-end and the seller reports that Xzilon coating was also applied upon their purchase in 2015.  Some minor cosmetic imperfections are depicted in the photo gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX.  Red brake calipers can be seen behind the factory optioned 19” Carrera Classic wheels.  It currently rides on a set of Pirelli P-Zero tires and an invoice is provided showing the rear tires to have been replaced in 2015.

 

Inside, you will find a premium Sand Beige full leather interior with optional supple leather front and rear seats.  Other optional features include the Power Seat Package, a remote 6-disc CD changer, the Bose High-End Sound Package, Navigation for PCM, Sport Chrono Package Plus, the Parking Assist System, and heated front seats.  All factory specifications have been retained and the cabin is said to be in great shape with some minor signs of wear as shown in the photo gallery.

This first-generation 997 Carrera S is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.8 L flat-six engine that sends 355 HP and 295 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a desirable 6-speed manual gearbox.  The optional Sport Chrono Package Plus enables variable performance settings for the engine management system and suspension as well as a stopwatch function.  Some service records are provided for reference in the photo gallery including an invoice for new fluids, filters, drive belts, spark plugs, and an engine cooling fan shroud at the time of the seller’s purchase in 2015.  CARFAX also shows a history of routine maintenance including the car’s most recent oil service and inspection carried out at Porsche Gold Coast in 2020 at 28,809 miles. A recent DME report is provided in the photo gallery.

 

This sale will include owner’s manuals, some service records, and a clean title.  For any enthusiast in search of a 6-speed 997, this 28k-mile Carrera S offers a fantastic opportunity.

    @PorscheRICH front tires are dated 2010 and 2012 respectively. The car was brought in to Porsche dealer in May 2020 (shown on carfax) for an oil change. The battery is most likely original as it hasn’t been changed since we purchased. It’s on a battery tender but it does seem to lose juice a bit faster when not on tender, it will most likely need to be changed soon. I am not sure the age of the pads as they haven’t been changed during our ownership.

  • PorscheRICH (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    You mention rear tires are dated 2015, does that mean fronts are older? Also, when was car last serviced at a Porsche dealer and what is age of battery and brake pads? What does car need? Richard in NJ

    @Allardk3 yes , the car has been driven sparingly since purchase in 2015. we do not know the condition of the other items you mentioned at this time. Breaks have not been flushed recently (last time was 2016).

  • Allardk3 1 month, 1 weekago

    Hi, Great looking car. Quick question, it looks like the car has only been driven a few thousand miles in the last 10 years. You mentioned that the tires are out of date, but do you know the condition of the other rubber parts, engine mounts, suspension bushings, seals etc? Do you know if the brake system has been inspected/flushed recently? Thanks.

    @mpaletta we have never had the IMS checked/serviced or cylinders scoped. None of the tell tale signs for potentially bore scoring were ever present to warrant further checking. Regarding the IMS, I was told rate of failure was even lower on the 2007 model year so our comfort level was ok to leave it as is.

  • mpaletta (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    ...and any info on IMS bearing replacement/inspection...

  • FDR_PCAR (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Hi All- we had a few questions regarding the Pirelli P-zeros this car sits on. I just checked with a tire depth gauge and all tires are approximately at 6mm. As mentioned in the post the rear tires were changed in 2015 , the front two I am not sure of , the front passenger tire shows slightly more age related wear. I will send some photos to Pcar to upload

  • mpaletta (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Interested...inquiring if a cylinder scope could be arranged to check for scoring...

    Close up photos of each tailpipe have been uploaded along with videos of spoiler and cabriolet top operation.

  • FDR_PCAR (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Taterpyrat thank you for the kind words. The seats look to be the same shade to me although the side cushions may be a tad bit darker than the rest.

    The only DME reports I have available are the ones that were posted on the listing.

    I will submit photos of the tailpipe and video of the spoiler and cab operation to Pcar to upload ASAP.

    Their is one receipt from another car we owned which was posted in error, I have notified pcar to take it down.

    Thanks !

  • Taterpyrat (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Very nice car! Interior -- it might be the photos but are the seats themselves the same shade of beige leather or do they have some level of discoloration compared to the seat backs? Do you have a DME sheet showing lack of over revs or mis-shifts? Can you add a close up photo of the tail pipes? A video showing operation and condition of the cabrio top? Also spoiler activation? (Noted that one of the maintenance records was for another porsche (VIn ends in 41516, 1995 Carrera). Thanks and good luck!
