This 2008 Porsche 997 Carrera Coupe comes finished in Guards Red and pairs a 6-speed manual transmission with its naturally aspirated flat-six engine. The car was configured at an original sticker price of over $81k including optional 19” Carrera Classic wheels, Bose High-End Sound Package, Power Seat Package, and Bi-Xenon Headlamp Package. Said to have been kept in private collections under the care of its last two owners, this well-preserved 997 Carrera is now being offered for auction with just over 9k miles on the odometer.
This Coupe is finished in traditional Guards Red and rides on optional 29” Carrera Classic wheels with colored Porsche crest center caps. Other equipment includes optional bi-xenon headlamps, a speed-activated rear spoiler, and black brake calipers with white Porsche lettering. The seller describes the exterior to have been kept in excellent condition and notes the original Michelin tires are retained.
The black interior includes a matching Alcantara and is appointed with optional heated and power-operated seats as well as self-dimming mirrors, the Bose High-End Sound Package, and matching carpet floormats. The driver is also provided with an electric sliding sunroof, automatic climate control, and Porsche Communication Management (PCM).
A naturally aspirated 3.6-liter flat-six engine sends up to 325 HP and 273 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. Acceleration from 0-60 MPH takes place in less than 5 seconds while stopping power comes from fixed 4-piston brakes paired with ventilated, cross-drilled discs at each corner. Some maintenance history is provided on the CARFAX report and the seller notes the oil and filters were changed at 8,889 miles along with new drive belts and a brake system bleed.
This sale will include the original owner’s manuals and a clean title.

@kwilliams31 That is indeed a reflection. The cold-start video offers a walk-around view of the car. I have sent additional photos of the backend for PCarMarket to post.
Hi, in photo number 23, there appears to be a fine line across the rear bumber. I believe it is simply a reflection however just wanted to confirm it is not a scratch. Thank you.

@65cl I meant *trunk switch.
@65cl Great question. The battery does not show on any of service records that we have or on the CarFax, however the date on the battery is 12/20. When I bought this car the first time I had it serviced on 5/12/21 at 8,889 miles. The service performed was an oil change & filter with mobile 15/50. We replaced the drive belt, and flushed & bled the brakes. The truck switch was also changed. You can see a copy of this invoice in the pictures - image #137. The tires are 2007s, but were not replaced because they show no dry-rot and it helps us authenticate the miles on the car. My recommendation is if you purchase the car that new tires should be added. Hope this helps.
Can you detail the maintenance items performed?
There would be some immediate work needed from tires, battery, fluids, belts, etc. Wondering what was actually done? Thanks

@Bzcat That's funny! We opted to leave the tires since they look brand new and we believe they, in a way, help to authenticate the mileage on the car.

I’m shocked those original tires can still hold air. But what an immaculate car!
