The 2009 model year saw the introduction of Porsche's updated 997.2 model which featured a new direct fuel-injected engine, revised styling, new LED lights, and a redesigned Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment system. This 2009 example is a Carrera Cabriolet finished in Guards Red over a Sand Beige full leather interior and is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission mated to its 3.6-liter flat-six engine. It was sold new in Illinois and moved to Texas in 2013 where it was maintained at Porsche Dallas up until 2020. Showing under 30k miles on the odometer, this 997.2 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Missouri.
Compared to the original 997 model, the updated 997.2 version featured a revised front fascia with larger radiator grilles as well as new LED taillights and headlamps with LED daytime running lights. This example is finished in Guards Red with a black cabriolet roof and factory 18” Carrera IV wheels. Other features include a speed-activated rear spoiler, dual exhaust outlets, headlamp washers, Porsche-branded brake calipers, and optional wheel center caps with colored Porsche crests. The seller describes the paint and trim to be in excellent overall condition with only minor imperfections visible upon close inspection. The car rides on a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires showing date codes from 2020. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin is appointed with premium Sand Beige full leather upholstery and includes optional Power Comfort Seats with heating and driver memory. Other accessories include a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, power windows and mirrors, automatic climate control, cruise control, central locking, “Carrera” script door sills, and a Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment system.
A naturally aspirated 3.6-liter flat-six engine delivers up to 345 HP and 287 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by a 6-speed manual transmission. Acceleration from 0-60 MPH occurs in less than 5 seconds while stopping power comes from fixed 4-piston brakes paired with 330mm cross-drilled rotors at each corner. The seller indicates an oil service and brake fluid flush were completed in 2023, and an emissions inspection was passed in December 2022.
This sale will include owner’s manuals and a clean title.
