This 2008 Porsche 997 Turbo Cabriolet comes finished in Ruby Red Metallic with a clear satin wrap over a Dark Grey Natural Leather interior. Configured at an original cost of over $151k, this example was generously optioned with the Painted Exterior Package, painted rocker panels, red taillights, the Sport Chrono Package Turbo, the Parking Assist System, the Carbon Package, Adaptive Sport Seats, a carbon fiber multi-function steering wheel, heated front seats, carbon fiber door entry guards, and more. It is now being offered for auction by its third owner out of California while showing less than 39k miles on the odometer.
The Ruby Red Metallic paint is protected with a satin 3M wrap and contrasted with a black convertible soft top. Optional features include the Painted Exterior Package, painted headlight washers, painted rocker panels, and red taillights. The fog lights, side markers, and taillights have been tinted and black trim has been applied to the mirrors, door handles, and side air intakes. The exhaust outlets have also been powder-coated black. The car rides on 19” 911 Turbo wheels dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport tires from 2011, and the ride height has been lowered by 1.5” with H&R springs. The seller notes an indentation in the front bumper was recently caused by a tow hook, and the passenger's side hydraulic for the rear wing has been replaced. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report showing minor damage to the front end in November 2016.

Additional options include a cabin Windstop with Porsche lettering, a model designation embossed on the storage compartment lid, heated seats with Porsche-crested headrests, floor mats in interior color, the Parking Assist System, and the Sport Chrono Package Turbo which adds a stopwatch dial atop the dashboard.

Power comes from a 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged Mezger flat-six engine that produces up to 480 HP and 460 lb.-ft of torque, driving all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The seller adds that a Sharkwerks tune was installed under previous ownership and the exhaust system has been modified to accommodate the original catalytic converter. The CARFAX report shows a total of 18 service history records and the seller adds that the oil was changed approximately 3 years (2k miles) ago.
