2010 Porsche 997.2 Carrera 4S Cabriolet 6-Speed

Now available for auction is this 2010 Porsche 997.2 Carrera 4S Cabriolet finished in Black over a black leather interior.  With its tactile driving characteristics and mechanical feel, the 997 generation remains the favored water-cooled 911 for many Porsche enthusiasts.  This 2010 example highlights a desirable 6-speed manual transmission, heated and ventilated Power Comfort Seats, and the Bose High-End Sound Package.  This C4S spent life in California up until 2018 when it was purchased by the current owner’s father at approximately 39k miles.  Having been meticulously cared for with barely 1,400 miles driven since, this well-presented 997.2 is now being offered for auction by its owner in North Carolina with approximately 40k miles showing on the odometer.

This 997s Black finish is stated to be in excellent condition overall, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery.  CARFAX indicates rear-end damage in 2016 and there is no record of repair or signs of persisting damage noted by the seller. This 4S features wide fenders derived from the 911 Turbo as well as a unique model-specific reflector strip located between the taillights.  A "911" rear model designation has been added and this Cabriolet rides on optional 19” 911 Turbo wheels that come dressed in Pirelli P Zero tires that were mounted in June of 2018 within the last 2k miles.

Inside, you will find a black standard leather interior that is described to be in very good condition.  Having commanded an original MSRP of over $116k, this well-appointed Cabriolet showcases heated and ventilated Power Comfort seats with driver memory, the Bose High-End Sound Package, Dynamic Cornering Lights, a Bluetooth phone interface, Navigation Module for PCM, XM Radio, a Universal Audio Interface, and Self-Dimming Mirrors.  All gauges and electrical components are reported to be fully functional.

Power comes from a naturally aspirated direct fuel injected 3.8 L flat-six engine that is capable of generating 385 HP.  All four wheels are driven through a smooth 6-speed manual transmission which allows this 4S to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in as little as 4.7 seconds.  In addition to boasting a 40 HP increase over the standard Carrera, the 997.2 4S features Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as well as larger brakes distinguished by red-painted calipers.  States to be in excellent running order with all routine maintenance up to date, this 997.2 is just waiting for its next owner.

This sale will include a clean title.  If you are in search of a 6-speed 997, this 40k-mile second-generation C4S is not to be overlooked.

    I just uploaded a report from the last dealer service visit on 3/18/2020. It was at Porsche of Greensboro. Note that the mileage was 40.729. The car has been in a garage and was only driven 87 miles since. All checked out OK and no service recommendations.

    Hi Mercyhealth. Thanks for your comments. Good to know. I'm afraid I will not be able to get any more photos taken before this auction ends. I did look over the car myself and saw no signs of damage.

  • Mercyhealth (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @jsatlanta great car! Sometimes Carfax can be helpful sometimes they are wrong. And it can be a real pain in the butt to correct them. This one to me is questionable in that the damage was supposedly sustained in 2016 but not reportable until 2017. I would disregard this portion of the Carfax. The best defense is a good offense. So if you could get it up on a lift for some under carriage shots especially in the rear bumper area along with paint meter readings you can put this issue to bed. I personally would request photos of both exhausts.

    Hi PTolan. I do not know what the damage report is referring to. That report on Carfax is a real mystery. I contacted the service dealer in California from around the time to try to find out what was being reported and they have no record of it. They only did a smog inspection.

    Do you know what the damage is that is referred to on the carfax?

    Hi cwood. Please contact me by private message to arrange for PPI. Thanks.

  • jsatlanta (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Hi Boston1989. The date of the report on Carfax was prior to my father's ownership. We don't know if he was even aware of the report. Please note that the Carfax report shows damage, not an accident. The term damage is used for all severities including minor cosmetic damage that is not caused by an accident. Thanks for your interest.

  • Boston1989 (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Did the accident happen during your father's ownership?

  • cwood (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Thanks Jeff. I definitely have interest.

  • jsatlanta (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Hi cwood. Thanks for your interest. It is a great looking car. We will welcome an inspection. Let me look into what can be done and I'll get back to you. Thanks.

    Hi Jeff, great looking Cab. Would it be possible to get a PPI performed?

    Thanks!!

    I'm Jeff. My father bought this car shortly after I bought my first Porsche, a 997.2 Carrera 4S. He passed away late last year and this car is now up for sale. I look forward to any questions and will do my best to answer.
