We recently got in this stunning 2005 Porsche 997 (internal designation for this era 911) Carrera in a great color combo, Cobalt Blue Metallic exterior and Stone Grey leather interior, which are just perfect together. The paint on this car is SIMPLY STUNNING, go look through the pictures and you can see how lustrous the paint is and how near perfect the interior looks. This car has two great aftermarket upgrades, a replacement stereo (Pioneer AVH-4100NEX) with touch-screen, Bluetooth (phone and streaming), Apple Carplay, Android Auto, USB connectivity, the works. It also has a Hard Wired PASSPORT SRX radar detector installed. Both pricey additions that make the car just that much better!
It has nice low mileage of just 52,000 miles (that’s only 4333 miles per year!) and a clean CarFax report. Clearly, it has been well cared for as evidenced by the aforementioned pictures. Even the FAN and TEMP control buttons are in perfect condition (common problem on all 10-year-old Porsches). Regular oil changes with Porsche spec Mobil-1 0W40 have been done like clockwork, as documented in the binder full of service records and receipts. Also comes with all original manuals, the original Window Sticker, Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche, as well as 2 fully functional keys.
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)
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 price point on these cars is just so great right now, this is so much car for the money, with an original sticker price of almost $80,000. This is no less of a performer now than when it was brand new, and we think these cars are just so much bang for your buck. It’s why we primarily carry 2005-2008 Porsches! The engine on this car 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.
This car has a great set of options from the factory;
In addition to the aftermarket Stereo and Hard-Wired radar detector it also has a mild 3M Brand window tint installed in may of 2015.
All its “consumables” (Rotors, Brake pads, Tires) are in excellent shape. It comes with a great set of tires, Kuhmo Ecsta PS91, a Max Performance Summer tire in 235/40R18 front and 265/40R18 rear.
- Front TIRES: 6/32″ (61%)
- Rear TIRES: 9.8/32″ (100% – NEW)
- Front ROTORS = 27.7mm (85%)
- Front BRAKE PADS = 10mm (91%)
- Rear ROTORS = 23.7mm (85%)
- Rear BRAKE PADS = 9mm (90%)
We really love 997 (2005-2008) Carrera’s. After the 996 and its love-it-or-hate-it design, the 997’s design harkens back to the roots of what makes a 911, a 911. Round headlights, wide hips, streamline and extra-clean and crisp interior design. As well as updated styling that was really a step ahead of the 996, such as the front trunk, take a look and see just how clean of a design it is. Of course, from a performance perspective, the 997 is just 100% on point, incredibly nimble handling characteristics, a very lively power to weight ratio of 9.46lbs per Horsepower, and an incredible soundtrack emanating from the tailpipes every time you put your foot down.
We are a boutique dealership and really want to build relationships with customers and hope whoever buys this car treats it well and then returns for us to buy it back when it’s time for them to upgrade to a different car! Our focus is and will always be to represent cars that are the finest, cleanest, and best of breed vehicles, this car is exactly that! We REALLY think they’re one of the best values in the sports car market. We have found that the 2005-2008 Carrera will convert anybody into a Porsche fanatic after even a single drive behind the wheel.
We also partner with some local shops that we feel do A++ work for clear bra paint protection film, window tinting, ceramic coating, and even auto wrapping if you want to get certain bits of the car wrapped in a contrasting color (such as the mirrors/wing/etc.).
