2006 Porsche 997 Carrera- Loaded!


2006 Porsche 997 Carrera Coupe

 

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

 

This 2006 997 was special ordered brand new at Checkered Flag Porsche in Virginia Beach, VA and delivered on August 22nd 2005. Here is how the car was ordered:

  • 3-spoke wheel interior color- $1,050

Total Original MSRP- $95,270!!

 

It is VERY rare to find a regular Carrera which has almost $24k in options alone, let alone the uber desirable options like full leather, adaptive sport seats, PASM, etc. I would challenge you to find another one like it!

 

The original owner had the car for 3 years and then it was traded in in 2008 when it had 12,242. At that time the car was serviced and sold as a “Certified Pre Owned” Porsche and was shipped to Washington where the 2nd owner cherished the car until now. He is a longtime active PCA member and spared no expense on this car. The car has been almost exclusively serviced at Barrier Porsche in Bellevue, WA. I have over 46 pages of service records on this car! He was an absolute fanatic about EVERYTHING being right.

 

Here is the best part; just prior to me obtaining the car he did almost $6,000 in preventative maintenance just because he wanted it right for the next person! Incredible! Here is what has just been done:

  • 60k major service including all drive belts, spark plugs, all filters, oil. Front brakes 100%, rear 80%, and tires 8mm front, rear 6mm.
  • Replaced all ignition coils
  • New front brakes-pads, rotors, sensors and brake fluid flush
  • Cooling system- New water pump, new expansion tank, new thermostat, flush and bleed system
  • New drivers door handle and micro switch
  • Fix leaking transmission output shaft seal
  • Full Detail
  • Total spent in the last 1000 miles- $5,864.88! Everything is done so you have nothing to do!

All the other interval servicing has been done WELL above factory standards, a few bigger items that have been done:

  • 78,110- Rear brakes, pads and rotors
  • 58,542- New Clutch and slave cylinder
  • 46,431- new starter and alternator cable (known issue on these)

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

  • Denison IPOD adapter and Bluetooth phone and audio- these cars did not get factory Bluetooth or IPOD until 2009. This system allows you to play your IPOD/IPhone and also does Bluetooth and Bluetooth audio streaming perfectly integrated in to the factory audio. Awesome!
  • XPEL Clear Film- The owner had the entire front end covered in XPEL film with no seams. Full hood, full front fenders, front bumper, mirrors, etc. No seams like cheap half hood installs!
  • Borla Full Stainless Exhaust- The owner felt the original exhaust was a little too mellow so he added the Borla system, it sounds incredible! The factory exhaust comes with the car as well.

The body and paint on the car are gorgeous! The car of course has a clean history and Carfax, no accidents or damage. 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
  • Full service history all arranged in a 3-ring binder, 46 pages worth!
  • 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?
