2012 Porsche 997.2 Turbo 6-Speed

We are pleased to present one of the very few Porsche 997.2 Turbo coupe’s to have been factory equipped with a sought after 6-speed manual transmission.  Finished in Meteor Grey Metallic, this 2012 example features a black full leather interior with the Carbon Package, the Sport Chrono Package with Dynamic Engine Mounts, Adaptive leather Sport Seats with driver memory, and illuminated door sill guards in carbon fiber.  This rare 6-speed 997.2 Turbo is now being offered by its seller in Canada while showing approximately 39k kilometers (24k miles) on the odometer.

The Meteor Grey Metallic finish is said to be in excellent shape with clear paint protective film applied over the front fenders, hood, and bumper.  Carfax indicates some moderate damage to the front end which is said to have been purely cosmetic and fully repaired (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery).  Optional features on this example include clear glass taillights, dynamic cornering headlights, and 19 Turbo II wheels dressed in fairly new Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

This Turbo is appointed with a black full leather interior featuring the Carbon Package and adaptive Sport Seats with driver memory.  Options specified on the original $169,680 (CAD) window sticker include:

  • 220      Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV)
  • 342      Heated Seats
  • 345      Heated Steering Wheel
  • 421      19" Turbo II Wheel
  • 480      Manual Transmission
  • 603      Dynamic Cornering Lights
  • 640      Sport Chrono Package Turbo Including Dynamic Engine Mounting
  • 686      SiriusXM Satellite Radio Receiver Incl. 3 Month Trial Subscription
  • 803      Carbon Package
  • 9Q       Meteor Grey Metallic
  • AT        Black Full Leather
  • P01      Adaptive Leather Sports Seats with Driver Memory
  • XES      Preparation for Illuminated Door Sill Guards
  • XXD     Door Entry Guards in Carbon, Illuminated
  • XXG     Clear Glass Taillights

This second-generation 997 Turbo is equipped with a 3.8 L flat-six twin-turbocharged engine that sends 493 HP and 480 lb.-ft of torque to all four wheels by way of a highly sought after 6-speed manual transmission.  With the optional Sport Chrono Package Turbo, this 997.2 is capable of accelerating from 0-60 MPH in as little as 3 seconds while reaching a top speed of over 190 MPH.  Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) is also optioned which significantly increases agility and steering precision by enabling variable torque transmission to the rear wheels.  Some service history is provided on Carfax and the selling dealer indicates that records are available through a local Porsche dealership.  This Turbo is noted to be in fantastic driving condition, just waiting to be enjoyed by a new owner.

This sale will include a set of 2 keys and the original owner’s books.  Do not miss out on this rare opportunity to own a 997.2 Turbo with a 6-speed manual transmission.

    @KvN Congratulations! I hope we were able to assist you as much as possible. Enjoy this Legendary Vehicle!

  • KvN (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @TopSpeedAutosalesInc A big shout-out of thanks to you guys for your assistance & affording me opportunity to conduct my PPI by "remote control". The over-rev report was a peach: just 58 ignitions in Range 1 (and hundreds of hours ago) and only 2 ignitions in Range 2. Zeros in all ranges after that.

    Some new wheel bolts and a full detail by my specialist & this Meteor gem will sparkle.

    Cheers, KvN

    @cubfan im sorry if the video was not as clear as you'd like, but as mentioned we were in a rush as @KvN had requested a PPI for the vehicle. Mind you the vehicle was sent back to the owner home, so by the time the vehicle was picked up and taken to PORSCHE and brought back, we had less than 24 hrs to put the car on a hoist and take the video, mind you it is snowing here and the car was driven in the snow to the locations, so the underside of the vehicle was very dirty.

  • TopSpeedAutosalesInc (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @KvN Hello, im sorry you feel that way but we didnt not have enough time to take the detail video you'd like for a couple reasons. Video was requested just a few days ago, also as the video was requested the vehicle was not here and it was sent to PORSCHE for your request of the PPI which was done, and by the time the vehicle came back it was less than 24hrs ago so we did not have time to take a video that was super detailed, and sent it to PCARMARKET as it takes times for them to upload it as well. Again i apologize for the inconvenience, Good Luck!

    @KvN Seller just put a video up with some very limited shots of the underside but mostly NOT showing much at all of the important pieces: engine, manifolds, exhaust and suspension. Pretty frustrating

  • KvN (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @cubfan well spotted. I had already expressed concern about salt & grit damage the provenance of this vehicle being Alberta, then Nova Scotia, then Ontario.

    This is no California garage queen...

    And I did ask for photos of the underside. Hopefully sellers can provide.

    So I'm beginning to suspect that what with the Carfax collision registered, the lack of clarity over what exactly happened, where it got fixed & for how much, cumulatively, caution is increasing.

    Let's hope sellers have agreed a sensible Reserve with auctioneers otherwise all of this will be moot.

    Cheers and good luck to all!

  • cubfan 1 month, 3 weeksago

    don't want to be a downer, but the lugnuts in pic 21 make it looks like this car was at the bottom of lake ontario. That is an outrageous amount of corrosion, yet the rest of the car looks sharp.

  • TopSpeedAutosalesInc (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @KvN Pics and Videos have been uploaded as requested

  • TopSpeedAutosalesInc (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    Hello, as requested the Videos of the exterior, interior, engine, and underneath the vehicle have been uploaded. Please refresh your page to view them. As well as pictures of the front bumper, engine, and seats have also been uploaded.

    Good Luck!

    Hey @TopSpeedAutosalesInc could you guys also please shoot & upload some pics too of the driver side seat bolster. Hard to see if it's damaged/distressed or fine/good from the current pics.

    Thanks and GLWS!

  • TopSpeedAutosalesInc (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    Hello Bidders, vehicle has come back from Porsche Vaughn Ontario (104 Four Valley Dr, Concord) for the PPI report. Vehicle has checked out great with no problems, and you can even call them to confirm.


    Here is the link to the report for the Canadian CARFAX:

    Video of the underneath of the vehicle as well as a close up video of the vehicle will be uploaded in a couple hours.

    Please do not hesitate to ask any further questions, we are here to help. Good Luck Bidding.

    @KvN Thank you, the vehicle has already been dropped to PORSCHE for the PPI. Results will be updated once the vehicle is back.

  • Laratta (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @KvN I think my statement was clear meaning if someone is looking for more info on the repair such as a dollar amount to give a better idea on previous damage they may consider a report from Carfax.ca.

  • TopSpeedAutosalesInc (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @KvN Vehicle is located in Richmond Hill, Ontario. PPI is def possible, it would be at your own cost, and we would need a payment for it, in which case after the payment, we can drop the vehicle at PORSCHE for you for the PPI. Please contact PCARMARKET in how the process works.

  • KvN (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @TopSpeedAutosalesInc thanks very much. The invoice for the "work" done from the "accident"?

    That would go a long, long way to assuage fears.

    I want to arrange a PPI. Where is the vehicle and can you assist?

    Many thanks & GLWS!

  • TopSpeedAutosalesInc (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    Hello bidders, as requested, a paint meter will be provided very shortly. As well as a video of the underside of the vehicle.

  • TopSpeedAutosalesInc (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @Zedosix Hello, Viewing is possible, please contact PCARMARKET on how to view the vehicle as the sale must go through PCARMARKET.

    Thank You, and good luck bidding

  • TopSpeedAutosalesInc (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @KvN Hello, this vehicle is on consignment from a prestige car collector, and we have gathered as much as information as possible from the owner to answer all your questions. We have spoken to the owner who had the vehicle at the time of the accident, and he had told us that he had rear ended someone, but there was no damage to the vehicle. There was no air bag activated, and nothing was replaced as there was no damage to the vehicle.

    We do not have pictures of the before and after of the vehicle since we did not own or have access to the vehicle at the time of the accident, and neither does the owner of the vehicle who owned the vehicle at that time, we apologize.

    However, we understand your concern about the Canadian winter, and we can provide pictures and videos of under the underside of the vehicle to show you the condition, as well as a video of the front bumper.

    I hope we were able to answer all your questions.

  • TopSpeedAutosalesInc (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @Laratta Hello, even though the CARFAX doesnt show the amount. We have spoken to the owner who had the vehicle at the time of the accident, and he had told us that he had rear ended someone on avenue road in Toronto, but there was no damage to the vehicle. Even though sometimes an accident happens and there is no damage to either vehicles, it must legally still be reported.

  • KvN (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @TopSpeedAutosalesInc Good day Sir/Madam, our questions are already out there so kindly address or run the risk this valuable PCAR community watching gets cold feet.

    Thanks & GLWS.

    @mesh Hello, we are here to help, please let us know any questions you have about the vehicle and we will try our best to provide any documentations or answers as possible.

  • mesh 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @KvN literally read my mind lol ... I’m in Ontario and would love to upgrade my targa4S 997 to a turbo like this one but would never bid on a car with this history without the appropriate and thorough documentation. The seller would be wise to address this, thereby increasing the number of bidders (myself included) and ultimately the final price (if of course everything checks out).

  • KvN (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @Laratta ...thanks... your statement means what exactly?

  • Laratta (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    This report looks like it was completed through Carfax.com. If it was done on Carfax.ca the reports usually show a dollar amount for damage / repairs. The only time a dollar amount isn’t shown is if the car gets repaired out of pocket and not through insurance.

  • Zedosix 1 month, 3 weeksago

    I’m in Ontario
    Could you let me know if viewing this car is possible

  • KvN (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    Hi @TopSpeedAutosalesInc

    On the face of it, a lovely example in Meteor Grey Metallic. However...

    Carfax reports classify accident/collision damage either as "Minor", "Moderate" or "Severe" this one hitting (pun intended) the "Moderate" category. Further, the PCAR blurb above refers to this as having "...been purely cosmetic and fully repaired".

    Mmmm. That's really not going to do it. Did the airbags activate? Was the bonnet replaced? Was the car put on a chassis jig to get pulled straight? Was any of what I say the case? We don't know.

    So a humble suggestion: if you can't (or don't want to)(it's entirely your prerogative) show us "before" pictures to assuage our fear of the Carfax blemish, then perhaps simply publish the detailed billing from the garage that fixed it?

    This will:

    1. Show immense transparency;

    2. Demonstrate the vehicle got repaired properly and professionally (and fully). Seeing the billing can afford us the opportunity to contact said shop that did the work or at the very least, allow us to investigate their reputation via the internet; and

    3. It can show us in detail what items required fixing, replacing and/or re-spraying.

    I do hope you can accommodate otherwise this may well end up RNM and bounce around from website to website trying to find it's (new) place in life.

    Lastly, the car began life in Calgary, AB and then moved out to Halifax, NS. It would be most reassuring to see lots and lots of pics of this car up on a rig so we can all see the underside is in fine, top shape! Canadian winters (and grit/salt treated roads) can be brutal!

    Many thanks in advance and GLWS.

    Hello seller. Would you be able to provide a DME report? I notice on these auctions that people ask for them with only an hour left which is unfair. Since it just went live perhaps you may want to get a jump on it. Best of luck
