The updated 997.2 version of Porsche’s flagship 911 Turbo sports car was introduced at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show with refreshed styling and a larger, more-powerful twin-turbocharged engine as well as the option of a new 7-speed PDK transmission making for one of the quickest cars on the road. This 2012 example comes finished in Black over a matching full leather interior and comes equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, a limited-slip differential, and painted interior trim along with a SportDesign steering wheel, exclusive painted wheels, and seats with Porsche-crested headrests. It was sold by its original owner on PCARMARKET in 2021 and was recently relisted for auction in 2023, although the buyer was unable to complete the transaction. This Turbo Coupe is being offered for auction once again by its seller out of Missouri while showing approximately 9k miles on the odometer.
This Turbo is presented in Basalt Black Metallic with a black cabriolet roof and 19” 911 Turbo II wheels in an optional body-colored finish. The wide bodywork includes Turbo-specific bumpers, integrated side air intakes, and a speed-activated rear spoiler. Noted imperfections include some small chips on the hood and blemishes on the left rear bumper. Clear paint protection film is also applied over the rear quarter panels. The seller states that the vehicle sustained front-end damage while under the second owner’s care in July 2022 at 8,028 miles which resulted in a CARFAX damage report and a salvage title. The seller notes that all necessary repairs have been carried out to restore the car to its original condition including a front left strut, knuckle, tie rod, control arms, wheel, and radiator. The seller adds that the car is fully aligned and there is no frame/unibody damage present. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a full CARFAX report and a recent third-party repair assessment.
Inside, the driver is greeted by a Black full leather interior featuring heated and ventilated front seats with exclusive Porsche-crested headrests, an optional SportDesign steering wheel, and a painted trim strip and rear center console. Some signs of wear are noted on the handbrake lever as well as a small chip on the center console. The seller adds that the original batteries in the tire pressure sensors have died and the TPMS light is present on the dashboard.
Up to 500 HP and 480 lb.-ft of torque comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six engine that drives all four wheels by way of a 7-speed PDK transmission with an optional limited-slip rear differential. Equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package including Dynamic Engine Mounts, the 997.2 Turbo can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in as little as 3.2 seconds. The transmission was reportedly replaced under the previous owner’s care at 3,441 miles. Services were completed by Greenwich Porsche including a complete cooling system flush, brake fluid exchange, an oil and filter replacement, and a new battery in February 2023.
The sale will include the owner’s manuals along with a collection of records and a “prior salvage” title. The original window sticker is not included.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for watching my auction. I purchased this car to replace my 2009 non-turbo. I performed the repairs personally in my shop and used only Porsche parts. The car is in factory condition and drives, shifts, and presents itself very well. It is just too nice to make my daily driver and have decided to keep my '09. I did my best to provide a thorough description of the repair. Please let me know if you have questions or need more details which I am happy to provide.”
