Now being offered for auction is this 2009 Porsche 997.1 Turbo coupe finished in the rare combination of Aqua Blue Metallic over a Sea Blue 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 generously optioned Turbo commanded an original sticker price of over $148k. This 2009 example is especially sought after as it debuted the next-generation PCM offered as standard in the 997.2 series. Preserved under full paint protection film and ceramic coating while displaying just under 21k miles on the odometer, this pristine 2009 Turbo is now being offered by its seller in Santa Barbara, CA.
Finished in Aqua Blue Metallic, the paint on this 997 is said to be in outstanding condition (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). Clear paint protective film has also been applied over the whole exterior prior to a full application of ceramic coating at a cost of over $6k. This 997 retains its factory specified look with yellow PCCB brake calipers tucked behind original Turbo wheels which come dressed in healthy Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Distinctive features include wide fenders with rear side air intakes, a speed activated rear spoiler and the factory optional painted exterior package.
The cabin is upholstered in full Sea Blue leather with Adaptive Sport Seats, Silver seat belts and a painted center console. 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 and entirely stock in its configuration with the exception of an added iPhone jack and Coco floormats.
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. A complete collection of service records shows proper routine maintenance and the seller confirms this Turbo to be in excellent driving order.
The sale of this 2009 Turbo will include a set of 2 keys, original owner’s books and documentation, service records, a front tow-hook license plate bracket and a clear title. Highlighting an impressive configuration, this low-mileage 2009 Turbo represents a very attractive opportunity to any discerning Porsche enthusiast.
