8K-Mile 2008 Porsche 997 Carrera Coupe 6-Speed

Currently offered for auction is this 2008 997 Carrera coupe finished in Basalt Black Metallic with a Natural Brown full leather interior.  This near-flawless, low-mileage example features a 3.6 L flat six-cylinder engine that delivers power to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission.  The car was purchased new in Birmingham, Michigan and subsequently exported to London, Ontario, Canada in 2015.  This U.S. - Spec example currently resides in Quebec, and is being offered by the seller with 8,500 miles on the odometer.

The Basalt Black Metallic exterior perfectly reflects the car’s low mileage.  The rich black paint has been well cared for and is reported by the seller to be in showroom condition.  This Carrera coupe is 44 mm narrower than its four-wheel drive siblings, which makes for an elegant silhouette – especially when viewed from the rear.  The rear end of the car is further accentuated by two oval exhaust tips, which differentiate this model from other 911’s in the Porsche range.  The streamlined stance of this Carrera is accentuated  by 18” factory 5-spoke Carrera wheels which come wrapped in Continental Sport Contact 2 tires with a good amount of tread life remaining.

The interior of this car features natural brown full leather upholstery complemented by driver orientated factory options.  This interior is stated to be in like-new condition with virtually no wear.  The seller notes the interior to be unmodified with all electrical components and accessories in working order.  This Carrera features an MSRP of over $85k and comes equipped with the following options: 

  • Sport Chrono Package
  • 6-Speed Manual Transmission
  • Heated, Power, and Memory Front Seats 
  • Color Coordinated Floor Mats
  • Bose Sound System 
  • Bi-Xenon Projector Headlamps
  • Self Dimming Mirrors 

This Carrera's 3.6L M96 flat six-cylinder engine delivers 321 HP and 273 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a desirable 6-speed manual transmission.  The C2 is the Porsche's lightest 911 that features a two-wheel drive configuration, saving 55 kilograms of weight compared to the four-wheel drive C4.  This Carrera can sprint to 60 MPH in 4.7 seconds.  A clean Carfax report and complete service records for the car provide peace of mind and confirm the consistent and proper maintenance required to keep this car running like new.

The sale will include a clean Carfax, records of service, original window sticker, and 2 keys.

    @superfly the records have been added to the listing

  • PCARMARKET 8 monthsago

    @superfly the seller is sending us PDF's of the records and they will be on the listing shortly.

  • superfly (registered bidder) 8 monthsago

    @PCARMARKET Also, the write up states that there are "records of service". Please post those.

  • superfly (registered bidder) 8 monthsago

    @PCARMARKET That's unfortunate. I agree with you that the Carfax does not show any other owners, but it does not say "1 Owner Vehicle" so I asked for that to be confirmed. It makes it hard to tell when only a portion of the Carfax pages are shown.... I am asking about the engine number because of the IMS issue. 2008 cars with engine numbers higher than M96/05 69507476 have the revised IMS Bearing.

  • PCARMARKET 8 monthsago

    @superfly We can't say for certain that this is a one-owner vehicle, however, upon examining the CARFAX and not seeing any entries of the car being offered for sale, it would be a safe to say that this is either a one or two owner car. We will not be able to get an engine number for you, however, there was no mentioning of the engine being replaced for any reason. Hope this was helpful and hopefully the seller is able to respond before the auction ends..

    Very nice car indeed

    What a rare and beautiful time capsule. Only 8500 miles with the correct transmission and a terrific color scheme. There is something very special about the 997 generation.
