2005 Porsche 997 Carrera Coupe- Just 31k miles!
If you have are looking for an amazingly nice 997, this car is worthy of your consideration. I LOVE this car and it has been a regular resident with me, the last 4 owners of this car have been my customers. It has been passed among passionate, Porsche people who have loved this car. The love and care is very apparent when you come see this car. Do you want to join this special club?
This particular 911 was ordered new by its original owner at Carrera Motors in Bend, Oregon and was first delivered on December 17th2004. Subsequent owners have taken this car to Boise, Richland, Kalispell and San Francisco. Where will it live next?
The car has a perfect history, has never been damaged and is like new in all respects. It has 100% original paint as verified by paint meter. The front end is covered with clear film, protecting all impact surfaces from road wear. The interior is likewise pristine, the only item I could note is a small amount if stickiness to the fan speed switch (common on these). It’s remarkable.
The car has been obsessively maintained and it is all documented in a 3-ring binder of service history from 2005 to current. It is current on all service, everything works as designed and it’s ready to go!
One question people often have on this era of Porsche is related to the Intermediate Shaft Bearing (IMS). This car being an early 2005 model was fitted with a serviceable bearing, so it was swapped to the LN engineering bearing when the car had 23k miles. A great peace of mind!
The car is truly ready to go to a local PCA concours. I am a huge fan of this car because you can buy this 997 for late 996 money. The late 996 is a great car but the 997 brought so many wonderful improvements especially in the styling department. Typically nice low mileage 997’s start in the mid $40’s and go up from there, this car you can buy in the high $30’s. Why is the price so low on a pristine low miles example like this one? Simply because the original owner ordered the car fairly lightly equipped. The only options are 19” wheels, heated seats and mats. All the greatness without the fluff, what a car!
On these cars it is important to have all the accessories, I have the following: All the original books and manuals, both keys, full service history, wheel lock key, unused tool kit and more. If you have been looking for one, this is the right one!
