Up for auction is this low-mileage 2005 Porsche 997 Carrera S Coupe finished in Lapis Blue Metallic over a Black full leather interior. In addition to this 911’s innate beauty, it offers raw Porsche performance from a newly installed factory-spec engine with an IMS upgrade already completed. Highlighting only 39k well cared for miles on the odometer, this Carrera S has been driven only 4k miles since its new engine installation and is being offered in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition by its seller out of New Mexico.
The Lapis Blue Metallic finish is reported to be in excellent condition with an application of paint protection film covering the front bumper, hood and mirrors. Visual details include red taillights, black stone guards and a set of unique Fuchs wheels that come wrapped. Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
Inside, you will find a very well kept black full leather interior. That features adaptive sport seats and a painted center console. With an MSRP of over $91k, this example was equipped with options such as sport chrono package, Bose surround sound system, a sport shifter and a CDC 6-Disc CD changer. All electronics are said to be in excellent working order.
This Carrera S is powered by a naturally aspirated 3.8L flat-six engine which is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. 355 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque is sent to the rear wheels making for a claimed 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 182 MPH. Due to an IMS failure, this vehicle received a complete engine replacement approximately 4k miles ago. All work was performed at Vision Motorsports to a very high standard in which the vehicle was also equipped with an IMS upgrade for additional peace of mind. Records of all work performed will be included with the sale. The seller also notes that an upgraded Fabspeed carbon fiber intake has been installed along with am IPD Plentum. A recent service was carried out which included a new serpentine belt along with all new fluids and filters.
