We recently got in this stunning 2005 Porsche 997 (internal designation for this era 911) Carrera in a great color combo, Lapis Blue Metallic exterior and Stone Grey leather interior, which are just perfect together. Unfortunately, we had an overcast day when it came time to shoot this car, so the pictures don’t do this color justice.  This car has nice low mileage of just 45,000 miles (that’s 3,750 / year!) and is in exceptional condition. It has a clean CarFax report and has been a California car its whole life.  Clearly it has been well cared for as evidenced when you zoom in on the high-res pictures and see the great condition of the paint and interior. Even the FAN and TEMP control buttons are in perfect condition (common problem on all 10-year-old Porsches).

This car is a real joy to drive.  It has that unique Porsche flat boxer engine sound, develops 325HP, and only weighs 3075 pounds.  The engine pulls hard when rowing through the gears all way from idle to the upper revs, and the steering and suspension feels tight and is ultra-responsive.

To express how nice we think this Carrera is we are including a 6,000 mile / 6-month Powertrain Warranty with the purchase of this car!  (Inquire about upgrading to longer term or more comprehensive coverage)

The car has had some recent maintenance done, including;

  • New Front & Rear brake rotors, pads and sensors less than 100 miles ago @ 45,000 miles
  • New Hankook Ventus K120 EVO2 235/40R19 (front) and 295/30R19 (rear) tires less than 100 miles ago @ 45,000 miles
  • Oil Change with Mobil-1 Porsche spec less than 100 miles ago @ 45,000 miles
  • Replace charcoal canister filter and gas cap @ 41,900 miles
  • 40,000 mile service and Oil Change with Mobil-1 Porsche spec @ 41,400 miles
  • Spark Plugs, Brake Fluid Flush, Cabin Air Filter @ 41,400 miles
  • Oil Change with Mobil-1 Porsche spec @ 36,100

Clearly, this car has been exceptionally maintained and has not been neglected, indicated by the frequent oil changes even before the recommend mileage interval.  With the fresh brakes, tires, and oil change it should be ready to drive across the country and back!  This Lapis Blue beauty comes with 2 keys, original owner’s manuals, and a folder of service records.
