Up for auction is this collector-grade 2005 997 Carrera Coupe. This all-original 911 celebrates the first model year of the 997 and is finished in classic Guards Red. With only 10k miles on the odometer, this Carrera is a true time capsule and is stated to be in concours condition.
The Guards Red paint is all original and stated to be in like-new condition. The car is sitting on factory 19" Sport Design wheels which are still wearing the original tires.
The interior is also in excellent, like-new condition. The only noted flaw is a slight area of bubbling on the speedometer gauge. Exclusive factory options include Guards Red seatbelts and instrument dials as well as an exterior paint matched center console. This Carrera also features heated front sport seats (with hard backs), Bi-Xenon Headlights, PCM with navigation and the Bose High End Sound Package. The seller states that it still smells new.
Power comes from a 325hp flat-six engine that is connected to a crisp 6-speed manual gearbox. Additionally, this Carrera comes equipped with the Sport Chrono Package allowing the driver to further enhance their experience as well as clock lap times. The 997 is commonly regarded as the last of the analog 911's making it a true drivers car
A full service was recently competed including coil packs and spark plugs. An all-original 997 of this pedigree is a rare find. With its exclusive factory options and sought-after manual gearbox, this one is a standout from all of the rest.
The sale will include a clean Carfax, all books, service records, and both keys.
