We are pleased to offer this 2011 Porsche 997.2 Carrera S Cabriolet finished in Guards Red over a black full leather interior. Originally ordered by Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) for internal use, this 6-speed Carrera S came generously equipped with the Sports Exhaust System, black-painted 19” Sport Design wheels, a limited-slip rear differential lock, painted exterior trim, leather Sport Seats, crested headrests, red seatbelts, illuminated door sill guards, and much more. It was sold to its first owner from Jim Ellis Porsche of Atlanta in 2012 at just over 3k miles and has changed hands with only one owner since. Well preserved and with approximately 13k miles showing on the odometer, this outstanding 997.2 is being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.
This Carrera S was ordered in traditional Guards Red along with a black cabriolet top, black-painted rear model designation, Bi-Xenon headlamps, and 19” Sport Design wheels painted in black. The front apron, intake grilles, headlight cleaner covers, and mirror bases also came factory finished in Guards Red. Clear paint protection film has been applied to the forward half of the nose, and the seller reports two mounting holes have been drilled into the front bumper for a license plate. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The factory wheels come fitted with optional 5mm wheel spacers and a set of Bridgestone Potenza RE-050A tires dated from 2011/2012.
Inside, the premium black full leather interior is complemented by Guards Red seatbelts, illuminated door sill guards in stainless steel, and Porsche crested headrests. Leather upholstery extends to the manually adjustable Sport Seats and center console as well. Driver amenities include self-dimming mirrors, heated front seats, and the Infotainment Package which adds BOSE Surround Sound, PCM 3.0 with extended navigation, and an XM satellite radio receiver. An image of the original window sticker is provided in the gallery showing an MSRP of $122,895, with over $7,500 worth of Exclusive Options.
