We are pleased to present this eloquent 2008 997.1 Porsche Turbo Cabriolet finished in black over a natural brown full leather interior. Featuring the legendary 3.6 L twin-turbo Mezger engine and a 6-speed manual transmission, this Turbo is sure to offer the incredible driving experience that so many desire. This example was sold new at Porsche of San Diego in 2007 and eventually made its way to Champlain, New York where it is currently being offered for auction with 56k miles on the odometer.
The exterior of this Turbo remains in excellent condition with only minor road going wear as indicated by the seller. The black paint accentuates the unmistakable wide body look of the 997 Turbo. The wider hips and lower ride height give this Turbo a much more aggressive stance compared to base 911 models. Factory options include a retractable rear wing, a matching black power-operated Cabriolet top, red brake calipers, and 19” factory 997 Turbo wheels which come wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tires (November 2019).
This Turbo features an elegant natural brown full leather interior that is complemented by a handful of desirable factory options. This interior is stated to be in exceptional condition with all gauges, electrical components and accessories in working order. Commanding an original MSRP of $143,905, this Turbo comes equipped with the following options:
This 997’s 3.6 L twin-turbocharged Mezger engine delivers 480 HP to all four wheels by way of a desirable 6-speed manual transmission. The Variable Turbine Geometry of the 997 Turbo engine adapts the vanes on the turbine wheel to reduce turbo lag at low speeds while opening to prevent excessive back pressure at high RPM. Equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, this engine can deliver brief moments of over boost, increasing peak torque to over 500 lb-ft over a narrow RPM range.
This vehicle comes with extensive maintenance records dating back to 2011 and is reported to be in excellent mechanical condition. A recent service in November of this year included an oil change, air filter, cabin filter and an overall vehicle inspection. With a bullet-proof drivetrain, a clean bill of health and low original miles, this car is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
The sale of this Turbo will include the original owner's manuals, service books, as well as two sets of master keys. Accompanied by a clear title, this Turbo stands ready for immediate delivery.
