DT: 48k-Mile 2008 Porsche 997 Carrera S 6-Speed

Up for auction is this 2008 Porsche 997 Carrera S Coupe finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a black full leather interior.  Featuring a 6-speed manual transmission paired with its 3.8-liter flat-six engine, this Carrera S also includes optional 19” Sport Design wheels, Sport Chrono Package Plus, heated seats with crested headrests, red taillights lenses, and a rear window wiper.  Under the care of its third owner, this 997 has been kept up to date on maintenance including a recent 45k-mile service and features a retrofitted OEM short shifter kit as well as a navigation module for PCM. It is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Illinois showing approximately 48k miles on the odometer.

This Coupe comes finished in Arctic Silver Metallic and features an optional rear window wiper and exclusive red taillights as well as 19” Sport Design wheels.  The Carrera S comes standard with red-painted brake calipers and the wheels come dressed in a set of Michelin PS2 N2 tires retaining more than 90% tread.  Clear paint protection film has been applied over the front bumper since new and the seller notes only a handful of small chips on the front fenders and right-rear rear quarter panel.  Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The premium black full leather interior comes factory optioned with heated power front seats including exclusive Porsche crested headrests.  The optional Bose High-End Sound Package is equipped and a navigation module for PCM has been retrofitted along with an OEM short shifter kit.  Some typical signs of wear are noted on the interior soft-touch coatings.

The naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six engine delivers as much as 355 HP and 295 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission.  Acceleration from 0-60 MPH is reached in as little as 4.5 seconds while stopping power comes from fixed 4-piston brake calipers paired with cross-drilled rotors at each corner.  All recommended maintenance has been addressed including a 45k-mile service at D-Patrick Porsche of Evansville, Indiana, with new transmission fluid under the current ownership.

This sale will include a set of two keys, the original owner's manuals, and a clean title.

    Are you open to an offer ?

  • kostony (seller) 3 weeks, 4 daysago

    @155MPH Yes, sir, I agree, that's why I got this car in the first place - the classic Porsche 911 in and out, some say it is the last "classic" 911 6-speed.

  • kostony (seller) 3 weeks, 4 daysago

    @155MPH And the "red" turn signal lights actually turn "orange" when on. Some kind of German Engineering I guess.(for an additional charge I guess).

  • kostony (seller) 3 weeks, 4 daysago

    @155MPH Yes, sir ! The red tail lights are an original factory option, you can swap them for an orange/red ones and keep the profit !

  • 155MPH (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 4 daysago

    I love EVERYTHING about this car...except...the all red tail lights. other than that, it is perfect.

    @1956speedster I understand the risks and questions involved buying a used car. Nevertheless I fully stan behind it as in near-mint condition. The next prospective owner is welcome to do paint thickness measurement, DME report, exhaust infrared probe, test drive it etc . and I promise your money back if not satisfied.

    Whoever told you that is wrong. You are the 5th owner. Look at the miles & service history during the time of dealer ownership.

    @1956speedster 3 actual owners. The other 2 were dealers.

  • 1956speedster (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 4 daysago

    Carfax shows 5 owners, vehicle description says 3 owners. Which is correct?

  • kostony (seller) 3 weeks, 4 daysago

    @Jlavine All original paint , no paintwork whatsoever. Everything including the sunnroof works as intended.

    Good afternoon,

    does the car have any paint work on it, and does the sunroof operate as it should?

    I did OBDII and Porsche error scan using Foxwell NT510 scan tool, no error codes found. I guess I would have to go to Porsche dealer to have full DME/overrev report from PEWES, last time done in May 2013, no problems found.

    Regarding car's milage under my ownership - after my back injury I prefer to drive one of my other cars with AT (c63amg or 928). The 911 is still driven from time to time and is kept in climate controlled garage. Regarding the tires I believe they were replaced in May 2013. Regarding maintenance - engine oil is changed once a year and brake fluid is flushed every 2 years. And yes, I cut the oil filter insert after each oil change and never found any metal particles. I am selling the car b/c of move from IL to AZ, downsizing from 5 cars to 2 or 3.

  • tomt69 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    1. What are the date codes on the Michelin tires on the car?
    2. Has the oil filter been cut open and examined at each oil change under your ownership?
    3. If so, was any visible metal detected?
    4. Why were so few miles driven under your ownership? Carfax indicates less than 2,000.

    A second set of wheels 19 inch Carrera Sport Classic with Bridgestone Pole Position all season tires available for additional purchase.
