Now up for auction is this 2007 Porsche 997 Turbo Coupe finished in Arctic Silver Metallic. Equipped with a 3.6L Mezger flat-six engine producing up to 480 HP, this 997 features a 6-speed manual transmission, the Sport Chrono Package, a locking rear differential, and black full leather interior with over $6k worth of exclusive options including extensive deviated stitching, Carbon Package trim, crested headrests, Guards Red seatbelts, carbon door sills, and more. Cared for by three prior owners, this 997 was sold new from Jack Daniels Porsche in New York and spent time in New Jersey, Texas, and Michigan before making its way to the West Coast in 2021. It is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Southern California with just over 27k miles showing on the odometer.
This Turbo was ordered in Arctic Silver Metallic and remains preserved with clear paint protection film applied over the front end. The Turbo differs from a standard 997 with its wide bodywork, model-specific front and rear fascias, side air intakes, and speed-activated rear spoiler. An optional rear window wiper is equipped and the factory 19” Turbo wheels come dressed in a set of Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
Inside, this Turbo features a black full leather interior highlighted by red deviated stitching, Carbon Package trim, seatbelts in Guards Red, and Adaptive Sport Seats with Porsche crested headrests. Other exclusive options include a thickened leather steering wheel, a storage compartment lid with embossed model logo, rear center console in carbon fiber, and carbon fiber doorsills with Turbo insignias. Amenities include heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, driver memory settings, PCM with navigation, and the Bose Surround Sound System. Some minor creasing is present on the seat bolsters and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
This first-generation 997 Turbo is equipped with a 3.6L flat-six engine featuring twin Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) turbochargers, VarioCam Plus variable valve timing, and dry-sump lubrication. As much as 480 HP and 460 lb.-ft of torque are distributed to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission with an electronically controlled center differential and optional locking rear differential. The optional Sport Chrono Package is equipped, and standard performance features include Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche Traction Management (PTM), and 13.8” vented brake rotors clamped by 6-piston calipers in front and 4-piston calipers in the rear. A maintenance inspection was completed by Porsche of Grand Rapids in 2019 and the car was last serviced by Auto Strasse of Costa Mesa in June of 2021. The seller adds that all routine maintenance has been kept up to date.
This sale will include the original window sticker, owner's manuals, and a clean title. A fine example of the last Mezger-engine 911 Turbo, this generously optioned 2007 Coupe is not to be overlooked.
