Up for auction is this nicely-equipped 2011 997.2 Carrera Cabriolet finished in Basalt Black Metallic over a Sand Beige leather interior. Considered by some enthusiasts to be the last true analog 911, the 997 generation has become sought-after for its visceral performance and solid mechanical feel. This 2-owner 2011 example had originally been sold in Florida before being purchased by its current owner in the Northeast. Showing approximately 33k miles on the odometer, this Carrera is now being offered for auction in excellent condition by its seller in New York.
The Basalt Black Metallic finish on this Carrera is said to be in excellent condition with minor road going wear including a few rock chips and one ding on the front left fender. The Carfax report indicates that a minor accident accident occurred in 2015 which lead to a professional refinish and proper blending of the driver's side. Detailed images of the exterior will be provided in the photo gallery. Exterior features include dynamic cornering lights and black 19” Carrera S II wheels which come wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires.
This Carrera is appointed with a lustrous Sand Beige leather interior that is outfitted with special-ordered amenities such as the Comfort and Infotainment packages. The interior is reported to be in exceptional condition with only one small mark caused by the rear wind screen. The seller has noted the interior to be entirely unmodified with all gauges, electrical components and accessories fully functional. Commanding an original sticker price of over $103k, this Carrera is equipped with the following factory options.
This 997.2 carries a naturally aspirated 3.6L flat-six engine that is rated at about 345HP. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission making for lightning quick gear changes. The optional Sport Chrono Plus Package adds a handy lap timer to the dashboard and gives the driver the ability to optimize performance characteristics on the fly. Despite the additional weight, the Carrera Cabriolet achieves nearly identical performance figures compared to its hardtop counterpart with a 0-60 time of about 4.7 seconds. Records indicate that this 997 has been regularly serviced at authorized Porsche dealerships since new and the seller states that all service currently up-to-date. This Carrera is being offered for auction in excellent driving condition.
The sale of this beautifully presented Cabriolet will include original books and documentation, the original window sticker, a Porsche battery charger, two keys and extensive service records. This vehicle is accompanied by a detailed Carfax report as well as a clear title in the seller’s name.
