DT: 45k-Mile 2008 Porsche 997 Targa 4S Automatic

Among the most scarcely produced versions of the 997, the Targa 4S features a unique sliding glass roof system as well as an opening rear hatch. This 2008 example comes finished in Macadamia Metallic and features a Sand Beige full leather interior, optional 19” Turbo wheels, a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, the Bose High-End Sound Package, and a Tiptronic S automatic transmission.  It was cared for by three prior owners and received over $6k in service from an authorized Porsche dealer upon the seller’s acquisition.  Now showing just under 45k miles on the odometer, this Targa 4S is being offered for auction by its seller out of Rhode Island.

This 997 comes finished in Macadamia Metallic and is distinguishable as a Targa 4S by its glass top and unique chrome accent along the roofline.  The wide fenders, red brake calipers, and quad exhaust outlets are also carried over from the standard Carrera 4S.  Factory optional 19” Turbo wheels come dressed in Michelin tires and are said to have been aligned and fitted with new pressure sensors during a service by Porsche Warwick.  One small scratch is noted over the left headlight and hood, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

 

The premium Sand Beige full leather interior includes optional heated and power-operated seats as well as a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, the Bose High-End Sound Package, and self-dimming mirrors.  The sliding glass roof system features a retractable sunshade and an opening rear hatch for more versatile storage.  Slight wear is noted on the bottoms of the seats and all gauges and accessories are said to remain fully functional.

 

As much as 355 HP and 295 lb.-ft of torque come from a 3.8-liter flat-six engine that drives all four wheels through an optional 5-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission.  An aftermarket Fabspeed air intake has been installed for increased sound and power, while the seller reports all scheduled maintenance to have been kept up to date including a recent 50k-mile service.

 

This sale will include a clean title (lien).

    @HAWKSPAR @TARGA2008 Thank you!

  • Aquaboy2u (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 5 daysago

    Am I correct to assume that the seller will be paying off the lien with proceeds of the sale? Want to make sure the intention isn’t to have the buyer cover the lien. Thank you

    beautiful car.
    would also like to request a video of targa top operation please. having owned one before, i love the glass roof, but had an issue with mine that was very costly to repair. a video would certainly put concerns at rest. thank you!

    @SoccerRef44 There is a small lien with Porsche Financial. When the deal is consummated and payoff to all parties, the title can be released and transferred to the new owner.

    Under Title Status, what does the word “lean” in parentheses mean? If it is relevant to paying off the lean after the eventual vehicle purchase, what is the amount of the lean and who is the lean holder, please?

    @ZeroGravity 1) Do you have all the original parts in the buyer wanted to remove the cold air intake and return back to stock air intake? No, I do not.
    2) How many keys (apologies if I overlooked the comment or picture)? 2 working keys
    3) Does this have the Paint Protection Film (PPF)? If so, on what areas of the car? PPF on bottom skirt behind both front wheels
    4) Can you provide a video of the Roof Operation? Yes, I can get you a video

  • ZeroGravity 1 monthago

    @TARGA2008 - Thank you for the listing. Very interesting option 997.1. A few questions if you have a chance to reply:

    1) Do you have all the original parts in the buyer wanted to remove the cold air intake and return back to stock air intake?
    2) How many keys (apologies if I overlooked the comment or picture)?
    3) Does this have the Paint Protection Film (PPF)? If so, on what areas of the car?
    4) Can you provide a video of the Roof Operation?

    I will reach out if I want to get okay to engage dealer that serviced.

    Thanks...

    @manuals4ever this is correct, I am having this revised now thank you.

  • manuals4ever (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    I think you mean a Fabspeed cold air intake was installed not a Fabspeed exhaust.

  • TARGA2008 (seller) 1 monthago

    Hello, I am happy to help answer any questions you may about my 911 Targa 4s. This car will be deeply missed!
