31k-Mile 2008 Porsche 997 Carrera S 6-Speed

Up for auction is this 2008 Porsche 997 Carrera S finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a black interior. In addition to its sought-after 6-speed manual transmission and 3.8 L flat-six engine, this 2008 example comes factory equipped with Adaptive Sport Seats, a leather Sport steering wheel, the Sport Exhaust System, and Sport Chrono Package Plus among other exclusive options. Having been cared for by three prior owners, this 997 shows just under 31k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.

This 997 is presented in Arctic Silver Metallic and rides on a set of factory Exclusive black painted 19” Carrera Sport wheels.  A layer of clear paint protection film has been recently removed from the nose section before the car was thoroughly detailed in preparation for sale.  The seller notes that some other portions of the car remain preserved under paint protection film, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.  The original wheels come dressed in a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires dated from 2018.

Inside, this Carrera S is appointed with a black interior featuring Adaptive Sport Seats as well as an optional leather Sport steering wheel, a storage compartment lid with model logo, and rear center console in aluminum-look.  The driver is also supplied with the Bose High-End Sound Package, heated seats, and a dashboard-mounted stopwatch included as part of the Sport Chrono Package.  The cabin is described to be in good condition with only minor signs of wear on the shift boot and seat bolsters.  CARFAX suggests a mileage inconsistency, although this is said to have resulted from clerical error when the mileage was recorded in August of 2021. The seller is in the proccess of having the error resolved.

This first-generation 997 Carrera S is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.8L flat-six engine that sends up to 355 HP and 295 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission.  The optional Sport Chrono Package Plus allows the driver to optimize engine and PASM suspension characteristics, while the optional Sport Exhaust System offers a more aggressive tone with the press of a button on the center console. The CARFAX report highlights service history dating back to 2011, and the seller reports this 997 to have been regularly maintained by Jim Ellis Porsche of Atlanta as well as Porsche of Omaha.

This sale will include a set of two keys and a clean title.  With reasonably low miles and desirable driver-oriented options, this 2008 example may very well be the 6-speed Porsche 997 you've been searching for.

    @BobG Yes that is a divot in the cement, unfortunate placement, merely a coincidence. Good eye!

  • AmeliaIslander (registered bidder) 4 days, 10 hoursago

    @BobG - never mind; I see them. Good question.

  • AmeliaIslander (registered bidder) 4 days, 10 hoursago

    @BobG - what is the # of the pics where you see the underside? Thanks

  • AmeliaIslander (registered bidder) 4 days, 10 hoursago

    @PCARMARKET - "we would be willing to make an exception on this auction so that all can feel confident." Good call

  • BobG (registered bidder) 4 days, 21 hoursago

    Good Evening DWhelan - The pictures of the rear underside show a dark spot on the concrete. Is that a coincidence as to where it was parked over a divot in the cement or a spot?

  • 1falco 4 days, 23 hoursago

    I LIVE LESS THAN FOUR HOURS FROM YOU. MAY I DRIVE OVER AND TOUCH THE CAR.

    @Guchon The policy is that it is non-refundable as all sales are final. With that being said, the seller is making an extreme effort to correct this and we would be willing to make an exception on this auction so that all can feel confident.

    This is the right year, great mileage, Fix the inaccurate CF and it’s a great deal

  • Guchon (registered bidder) 5 days, 22 hoursago

    You say buyer can walk away from the deal if the Carfax isn't taken care of, but what about the 5% the Pcar market takes?

    We guarantee the mileage issue will be fixed or we will unwind any deal we have, no questions asked!! Let’s get to bidding! You don’t want to miss out on this one!

  • DWhelan (seller) 1 weekago

    @Bzcat DMV has acknowledged the error and is working to revise it. Thank you for your suggestion, I will work on obtaining a DME report. Any interested party is more than welcome to come and see and inspect the car for themselves.

  • jmyers3 (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @Bzcat Mileage input into carfax is always pulled from a manual entry, this is not uncommon with carfax. They aren't the fasted to fix it either.

  • Bzcat (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    That's one hell of a clerical error! Lack of records once the car moved to Florida doesn't help either. Rather than trying to correct the error with DMV, the seller should just get a DME report with operating hours. That will eliminate any doubt: a low operating hour will corroborate the low mileage.

  • luis.seneriz (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    I’m interested in it. Can you provide DME report, driving and cold start video? I would a boroscope in the perfct world.

  • DWhelan (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @r3drov3r thank you for your inquiry, all of the buttons function properly, I went out to the vehicle today and removed the scotch tape, the vehicle came to us with the tape, I'd be speculating as to how it got there.

    We have photos of the undercarriage, I will see about having the fine folks at PCar add them in.

    Any other questions feel free to ask!

  • DWhelan (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @Porsche911Lover Good Afternoon, we believe the mileage inconsistency on the Carfax is due to a clerical error by a DMV employee. The condition of the vehicle reflected the miles shown on the odometer. We are in the process of having the inconsistency resolved and have sent FLDMV all necessary documentation to have the issue corrected. I will be providing updates as to our progress as I receive them.

  • Porsche911Lover (registered bidder) 1 week, 2 daysago

    Hi, could you explain the odometer inconsistency in the carfax report?

  • r3drov3r (registered bidder) 1 week, 2 daysago

    Great looking car. Can you please explain why there is scotch tape on two of the buttons on the radio?
    Also, will there be any undercarriage pictures shared?
    Thanks
