2005 Porsche Carrera Coupe-39k miles

2005 Porsche 997 Carrera Coupe-39k miles

I am SO excited to write about this car! Why? Because the color combination is rare, the option list is near ideal and the service history is one of the best I have ever seen. Here we go…

This 2005 997 has the distinction of being the 1st Porsche ever sold by Porsche of Boise. It was sold new on April 29th, 2005 and its original owner used it sparingly in good weather until he sold it in March of 2013 with 21,701 miles to a client of mine. My client had always wanted a Porsche and treated this car better than most people treat their children! This is evidenced in the 3-ring binder showing a level of care that is truly impressive!

Here is how the car was ordered:

Porsche Carrera Base Price- $69,300

Midnight Blue Metallic- $825

Stone Grey Standard Leather

Stone Grey Floor Mats- $115

Full power seats- $1,550

Bi-Xenon lights- $1,090

Self Dimming Mirrors- $385

Heated Front Seats- $480

19” Carrera Classic Wheels- $1,940

Wheel Caps w/ Colored Crests- $185

PASM- $1,990

Navigation for PCM- $2,070

Bose High End Sound- $1,390

Remote CD Changer- $650

Sport Shifter- $765

Porsche Crest in Headrest- $220

Total Original MSRP- $84,740

It is VERY rare to find a regular Carrera which has the desirable options of PASM, 19” Carrera Classic wheels, Sport Shifter, etc.

Here is the best part; EVERYTHING that are known issues on this car has been proactively addressed. Here is what has just been done:

  • 39,175 annual Oil service, full detail by Metropolitan Detail
  • 36,431- annual oil service, brake fluid flush
  • 33,086- New coolant expansion tank and lower coolant hose

The owner also made several valuable upgrades to the car, they are:

  • 3M Clear Film- The car has had film since day 1 protecting the front of the car including the bumper cover, half the hood, front fenders and mirrors.
  • Window tint- the car has 35% (legal) window tint on all the windows except the windshield, protecting the interior. It can be easily removed if the next buyer would prefer them back to factory.
  • Weathertech Mats- In addition to the carpet OEM mats, I have a set of fitted grey Weathertech winter mats. Great for everyday use!

The body and paint on the car are gorgeous! The car of course has a clean history and Carfax, no accidents or damage. The paint is 100% original as verified by paint meter readings in the range of 4-5.5 mils. The interior is likewise very clean with only minimal wear for the miles.

The car of course comes with everything an excellent example should, including:

  • Original Window Sticker
  • Porsche Certificate of Authenticity
  • Original purchase order paperwork
  • Full service history all arranged in a 3-ring binder!
  • All the original books and manuals
  • 2 original keys
  • Never used tool kit, tire inflator, etc.

I cant think of much else to say other than what an amazing car for the $$. All of the expensive preventative work has been done and the car has been clearly loved from new. Are you ready to be the next caretaker?
