2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S

Less than 35k miles, beautiful condition inside and out

Bright Motorcars strives to source only extremely high quality cars that stand out from the crowd.  This 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S definitely falls into that category.  What sets this car apart is the nice low mileage of 34,500 (about 3,200 per year!) and the overall condition of the car. In general the paint and clear coat are in spectacular condition, as can be witnessed by the zoomed in hi-resolution pictures, though some small rock chips and blemishes can be seen when very close up, which is not out of the ordinary considering it has been driven throughout its life.  The interior is almost indistinguishable from new, even the FAN and TEMP control buttons are in perfect condition (common problem on all 10 year old Porsches).

This two wheel drive S model comes with the 3.8 liter motor putting out 355 horsepower and 295 pound feet of torque, up by about 30 from the base model 997 Carreras.  This is tip of the iceberg as it relates to what makes an S stand out vs. the base model, including Larger (and RED) brakes, more performance oriented suspension with about a 1/2″ drop from stock, PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management, Remotely controllable ride stiffness), Bi-Xenon lights standard, 19″ Carrera Classic wheels with 11″ wide and 295/30R19 tires in the rear, special S only steering wheel, and silver gauge faces vs. black in the base model.

This car has a clean CarFax bill of health, and has lived the majority of its life (since December of 2005) in Las Vegas or the Bay Area here in California.  As expected for a west coast car it is free of all rust and corrosion.  It runs and drives superbly, the engine runs strong and has a sublime exhaust note at idle or up into the revs, the steering is tight and ultra responsive, the suspension is compliant and great for city driving or you can press the PASM button and immediately feel the dampening stiffen up for spirited driving.  The brakes are also in excellent condition and do an amazing job of bringing everything to stop in a hurry, the fronts are almost brand new (8mm) and the rears are at about half (4.5-5mm). All four tires are in excellent condition and almost brand new with 9/32″ of remaining tread.

The owner of this car for the past 10 years is an enthusiast who take great care of his cars, and decided he needed a 4 door M3 which offers much needed person and gear hauling capacity.  Regular maintenance was performed at highly respected Porsche specific shops in the bay area, oil was changed regularly even if required mileage was not reached, always with Porsche spec fully synthetic oil.

Within the last 5,000 miles it has had the following pre-emptive service completed;

  • Brake Fluid Flush
  • Antifreeze/Coolant Flush
  • Cabin Air Filter Replaced
  • Spark Plug Replaced
  • Engine Air Filter Replaced

All original owners manuals, 2 full keys, and extensive service documentation accompanies this car.

Simply put this is a very very nice example of a 997 Carrera S in a great color combination, with just enough miles to make it affordable but not too many where cars start showing too much road wear.  The P O R S C H E logos on the doors can be removed if desired (as they are made vinyl, though it should last a LONG time if left on).
