This inaugural-year Porsche 991 Carrera S Coupe comes finished in GT Silver Metallic over a Carrera Red Natural Leather interior. Configurated at an MSRP exceeding $142k, it was generously optioned with a 7-speed PDK transmission, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control with Porsche Active Suspension Management & Sport Suspension, the Sport Exhaust System, Sport Chrono Package, Burmester Sound System, Light Design Package, Premium Package Plus with 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats Plus, and more. Initially delivered at Manhattan Motorcars in New York, this example is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Texas while showing under 30k miles on the odometer.
This Carrera S comes finished in GT Silver Metallic and features painted headlamp cleaner covers along with yellow-painted Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB). It rides on factory 20” Carrera S wheels dressed in Pirelli P Zero tires from 2016 to 2018. Other equipment includes bi-xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), power-folding exterior mirrors, a speed-activated rear spoiler, and quad exhaust outlets. The seller notes that this example had previously received an application of paint protection film which has been removed from everywhere but the mirror covers. Some paint imperfections are noted including three touched-up stone chips on the hood and a quarter-sized paint bubble on the trailing edge of the front bumper. Additionally, the rear bumper was refinished due to minor damage to the left rear side of the vehicle in December 2020, followed by the replacement of the front spoiler and cowl cover due to water damage in September 2021. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report.
The cabin is appointed with premium Carrera Red Natural Leather upholstery and matching carpet floor mats. Optional features include an electric sunroof, the Premium Package Plus, 18-way Adaptive Sports Seats Plus, the Burmester Sound System, the Light Design Package, and the Sport Chrono Package which adds a stopwatch dial atop the dashboard. A host of driver amenities were also selected, including Power Steering Plus, heated and ventilated front seats, electric folding mirrors, automatically dimming mirrors, a rear window wiper, Porsche Entry & Drive, Porsche Dynamic Light System, and ParkAssist (front & rear). The seller notes minor scuffs and the undersides of the seats have had small leather tears glued and dyed. The CARFAX report shows water damage to have occurred in September of 2021. The seller states they have removed the seats and lifted the carpets, allowing them to dry for several weeks in Texas throughout 2022. The carpet was then disinfected, shampooed with a commercial extractor, and steam cleaned. The seats were dissembled to gain access to all motors for cleaning or replacement as needed, then cleaned with a 6-step process. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly and are said to have been checked by an authorized dealer. The seller adds that there are no dashboard warning lights present.
A naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six engine delivers up to 400 HP to the rear wheels by way of a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission. This Carrera S features optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) & Sport Suspension, the Sport Exhaust System, and the Sport Chrono Package which provides acceleration from 0-60 MPH in as little as 4 seconds. Stopping power is provided by optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) for superior braking abilities. The seller states regular maintenance items have been performed at Manhattan Motorcars in New York and the transmission fluid was changed in April of 2023. Regarding water damage in September 2021 as shown on the CARFAX report, the seller states they have replaced several electrical items including the Body Control Module (engine communication), Transmission Control Module, Park Assist Module, Alarm Module, and the Burmester amplifier. These modules were under the carpet and could not be repaired, and were therefore replaced with OEM parts. Porsche of Plano, Texas, reportedly reprogrammed the TCM, which allowed the engine to turn on. The engine was then operated for a few seconds to prevent normal pressure build-up. The technicians then replaced the engine oil, transmission fluid, differential oil, and brake fluid. No water is said to have been detected in any of the changed fluids. The oil, air, and cabin filters were replaced as well, and the coolant was tested. Other services included the installation of a new NAPA battery, two upstream O2 sensors, and the replacement of all four heat shields.
This sale will include a branded title, a window sticker, a toolkit, an air pump, and a car cover.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for your interest in this rare Carrera. I restore 911s as a pastime. I go through each car slowly, with an eye for detail. This Carrera S got its seats wet in a NYC garage flood. We went through great pains to ensure that the car runs and drives normally again. Feel free to ask any questions.”
