Originally sold in Louisiana, this 2005 example spent time in Canada, Texas, and is now being offered by its seller out of Tennessee with approximately 34k-miles showing on the odometer.
This 997 is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic with a black cabriolet soft top. Some touched-up chips are noted on the hood and front bumper.

All gauges and accessories are said to be working properly and the seller notes a hole in the driver’s side floormat near the accelerator pedal as well as some wear on the driver’s seat bolster.
This first-generation 997 Carrera S is equipped with a 3.8L flat-six engine that sends up to 355 HP to the rear wheels through a sought-after 6-speed manual transmission. The optional Sport Chrono Package Plus adds a functional lap timer to the dashboard and allows the driver to optimize performance characteristics while underway. All available maintenance history is provided on CARFAX with the most recent documented service carried out in 2020 at 28,293 miles including a coolant and brake fluid exchange, new air filter, and new spark plugs. The seller has carried out a fresh oil change in preparation for sale.
