DT-Direct 18K-Mile 2009 Porsche 997 Turbo Cabriolet 6-Speed

Up for auction is this 2009 Porsche 997.1 Turbo coupe finished in black over black full leather interior.  Featuring PCCB ceramic composite brakes and a legendary twin-turbocharged Mezger flat-six engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, this Turbo is not to be over looked.  This 2009 example is especially sought after as it debuted the next-generation PCM offered as standard in the 997.2 series.  Preserved under paint protection film while displaying just under 19k miles on the odometer, this Turbo is now being offered by its seller out of Connecticut.

The black finish on this Turbo is said to be in exceptional condition (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery).  Clear paint protective film has also been applied over the entire exterior surface aside from the rear two quarter panels.  Noteworthy details include wide fenders with rear side air intakes, a speed activated rear spoiler and red taillights.  This 997 retains its factory specified look with yellow PCCB brake calipers tucked behind original Turbo wheels which come dressed in Bridgestone Potenza tires.

This 911 has been appointed with a black full leather interior that features adaptive sport seats and yellow deviated stitching throughout the cabin.  Other exclusive factory details include illuminated stainless-steel doorsills, Bluetooth phone interface, PCM voice control, universal audio interface and Sport Chrono Package.  The interior is stated to be in exceptional condition with all electronics remaining in working order. With an original MSRP of over $168k, additional options include:

  • Lmtd Slip Rear Diffrntial Lock
  • Heated Seats
  • 3-Spoke Str Whl Multifctn lthr
  • Parking Assist System
  • XM Radio
  • 6-Disc CD/DVD Changer
  • Floor Mats in Interior Color
  • Thicker Leather Steering Wheel
  • Cabriolet roof in Black
  • Instrument Dials Speed Yellow
  • Rear Center Console - Leather
  • Sport Seat Backs in Leather
  • Seat Belts - Speed Yellow


Marking the final iteration of the Mezger 911 Turbo, this 997.1 is powered by a twin-turbocharged flat-six Mezger engine rated at 480 HP.  All four wheels are driven through a highly desirable 6-speed manual transmission allowing this coupe to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in as little as 3.7 seconds.  Coveted for its race-derived design, the Mezger engine is widely regarded as one of the greatest water-cooled Porsche motors of all time.  Optional PCCB ceramic composite brakes provide superior stopping power while the Sport Chrono Package enables the driver to clock lap times and optimize performance characteristics while underway. This example is said to have been dealership serviced throughout its life with a recent 4 year major service performed that included new spark plugs, new coils and all new fluids and filters.

The sale of this desirable 2009 Turbo will include two keys, books, service records, and a copy of the original window sticker.

    @captgiddyup First and foremost, thank you for your service and I can only dream of being on #17 :). I tend to keep my cars for a while, and I appreciate the reassurance! All Private Messages have also been answered and I thank everyone for their continued interest and PCARmarket as well. Happy holidays everyone!

    “Advice is usually worth what you pay for it.” In my blessed life (with Service to Our Country in 5 different Decades) it has been my good fortune to own 911S, 9114S, and Turbo S Models. My next purchase will be #17. Only 18,000 Original Miles? A smart man looking for exactly what you have will pay your full Asking Price. Lowering your price sends a terrible signal (it is not worth what you think & know it is) Budge Not!

    @Hartclay Thank you so very much! Would be nice to chat if you have the time. Please feel free to DM me or ask any other questions you may have. Cheers!

    With the leather seat backs, yellow gauges and the stitching On this car It’s probably the only one optioned like it. And reflected in the asking price. Great car

  • Hartclay (registered bidder) 1 week, 3 daysago

    As an avid collector of 997 cars I can say the .2 market bottomed 2 years ago. The .1 bottomed more recently. You are now seeing low mileage high optioned car’s going up in value. They made 771 cabs in 2009 shipped to NA. 420 had 3 pedals, 46 had Pccb. The average dreamer looking a 60-70k 997 is not investing in this car. The right collector who understands the market may pay a premium over average retail price for a car like this. My advice to the seller is to hold for close to the asking price. It’s not losing value. That’s for sure. If I were the seller I’d simply use the response “find another ones”. Happy sales :)

    @IN10SE Nice car everybody wands a Mezger Turbo 997 stick think is priced fair..Good luck

  • IN10SE (seller) 4 weeksago

    @Rzivalic @Markfuchs @PapaFrank

    Those were my thoughts when I originally picked it up! I truly hope it will go to someone who will appreciate it for what it is :) It's time to move on for me. With regards to the turbo listed for 199k, I believe that's a GT2 - same block as the turbo ... only more

  • PapaFrank (registered bidder) 4 weeksago

    We can have different opinions on value, but I think the one thing everyone agrees on is that triple black with PCCB and yellow dials/belts is smoking hot color combo. +++ style points GLWTA

    @allmack @PapaFrank @Falcon01

    I believe 2009 manual Turbos were the rarest year for the 997's. Ive watched the market on manual 997's for a while now. The seller's price seems normal for what the car is. Comparing a 997 Turbo S to a 2009 Turbo Manual is not a valid way to value the car. It's comparing apples to oranges. I did a search on cars.com and there are only two 2009 997 manual Turbos listed. Both hardtops. One is listed for $199k and the other has a "contact seller" for the price which usually means it's $$$$. Seller, good luck with the auction.

    This is one of the nicest spec'd 09's I have ever seen. Ask whatever you want. One year only model ,perfectly equipped. You will get closer to your number than a lot of these folks think. Hats off to whomever originally ordered this car.

  • IN10SE (seller) 1 monthago

    Lets keep the discussion on questions or more information about the car. If you have additional positive comments those would also be kindly appreciated and encouraged. Thank you to the PCARMARKET community and all interested parties!

  • Falcon01 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @IN10SE If you're doing apples to apples, that one is apso 997.2 and a much more desirable year and body style compared to yours. Despite your lower miles, I wouldn't expect your car to get more than his.

  • IN10SE (seller) 1 monthago

    @Falcon01 Thank you for the commentary. If you're going to compare, at least lets look at apples to apples. 51k miles and no pccb is no comparison for 18k miles + pccb. If you are interested in the vehicle, please make a serious offer and I will evaluate it. I have the right to list my car at whatever I so choose. Any other questions are welcomed! Thank you guys

  • Falcon01 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @IN10SE a 2012 Turbo just sold on here for $83k. Similar sticker price. I think you should re-evaluate the market value of your car and price it accordingly if you truly want to sell it.

  • PapaFrank (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @IN10SE no disrespect meant. You have the absolute right to accept or reject any offer. I can speak from my experience that no ones as drunk as the one who drinks his own whiskey

  • IN10SE (seller) 1 monthago

    Thank you all for the comments! I am here to answer any questions or concerns. All serious offers will be considered, so please make your best one!
    @PapaFrank There's nothing like rowing your own gears! Took me a long time to find this one :)

  • Falcon01 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @PapaFrank Agreed. This seems like a $75k - $85k car

  • PapaFrank (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @allmack Agree. I’m mulling over a white/black 2011 Turbo S cab with 21k miles and Porsche CPO for $93,000.

  • $78,000 offer from Livingston, NJ (07039) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Offer in the amount of $78,000

  • allmack (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Nice example, but PCM might counsel the seller they're overestimating the market.
