DT: 2007 Porsche 997 Carrera S Coupe

Up for auction is this 2007 Porsche 997.1 Carrera S presented in Midnight Blue Metallic over a Sand Beige leather interior.  Characterized by its visceral and mechanical feel, the 997 generation has become a favorite among discerning driving enthusiasts.  Featuring 19” Carrera Classic wheels, a refined automatic transmission and the Bose High End Sound Package, this 2007 example commanded an original sticker price of over $92k.  Preserved under 5 layers of ceramic coating, this Carrera S is said to remain in very nice overall condition with approximately 69k miles now showing on the odometer.

The Midnight Blue Metallic finish is said to be in outstanding condition with 5 layers of ceramic coating professionally applied within the last year.  Detailed images along with recent paint meter readings are provided in the photo gallery.  This 997 rides on optional 19” Carrera Classic wheels which come dressed in Kumho tires dated 2015 in the rear and 2016 up front.  The seller also notes that one of the rear tire pressure sensors is in need of replacement.

This 997 is outfitted with a Sand Beige standard leather interior featuring heated and power operated front seats.  Other factory options include the Bose High End Sound Package, self-dimming mirrors and illuminated door entry guards in stainless steel.  An aftermarket iPod adapter has been installed and the cabin is stated to be in excellent condition with all gauges and accessories working properly.

Power comes from a naturally aspirated 3.8 L flat-six engine rated at 355 HP.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed automatic Tiptronic S transmission making for a 0-60 time of approximately 5 seconds.  Having been maintained by a reputable technician over the past 4 years, this 997 is up to date on all scheduled maintenance with an oil and filter service carried out recently.

The sale of this 997 will include a master key, owner’s books and service records.  This 2007 example offers the perfect opportunity for any enthusiast in search of a Porsche 997.

    @Jmingst - Hey over the weekend, I went through all the paperwork on the car, Multiple pages at dealer for multiple repairs: Rear Shocks/ struts , Bushings, oil changes, 4 wheel alignment & full engine tune up . In the full engine tune up section it states Drive axel, Bearings and Joints all checked, no issues. Final Recommendations for needed repairs at the time were: Replace rear struts and mounts, Alignment of all 4 wheels, Completed 8/10/18.
    This car is very well Maintained and up-to-date, Please be aware that this car is probably the best 997 CS2 you will find on the market.

    @Martiniman oh yes I’m acutely aware of the bearing change. That is why I asked the question. The owner has stated it was changed. It’s a huge job they need to support the claim. This redesign is better than the earlier engines with less failure but there is still a chance.

    @Martiniman Isn't this the so-called L&N Engineering kit? Also, the engines potentially affected can be found on the interwebs.... google it, or search 997 forum on Rennlist.

    @Jmingst IMS bearing was non-serviceable from mid-2005 to 2008MY. This generation had the large bearing though that was improved. You would have to spit the case to change it. You can remove the outer IMS seal and as an option put in a direct-oil feed kit to lubricate the bearing.

    @Jmingst - I went through all the paperwork, Does not state IMS Bearings done. Reagrdless, Engine runs smooth and pulls strong. Multiple inspections carried out, with no need for IMS bearings to be addressed.

  • Jmingst (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    Can you dig through your receipts for the IMS bearing job. Would like to see what was put in and what else was addressed. If you know this is the silent killer. You can’t hear it not even a dealer. These jobs typically cost about 3k.

    If IMS has been done it should have the sticker attached to the drivers door frame or be on one of the service records

  • sbwoodworth (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    I have ordered the New Climate Control Buttons.

  • sbwoodworth (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @AndrewS - Yes I have a folder full of service records.

  • sbwoodworth (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @AndrewS - I believe the IMS Bearings were replaced by Dealer before we owned the car. She runs like a top, havent had any issues.

    Beautiful vehicle. Has the IMS bearing on this 997.1 been replaced? Any further service records? Thanks
