2007 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S Coupe- Just 39k miles!
I recently had a customer say to me “you know, I think you really just have a dozen customers who you shuffle cars amongst….”. I laughed as his numbers are slightly off, but there just might be a little truth to that…. This 997 was sold new at Barrier Porsche, our local Porsche store and my client purchased it at another local dealer in 2014. Funny enough that owner has bought/sold 3 Porsche’s from me. I took the car in on trade from her and subsequently sold it to another local client who has bought/sold 4 Porsche’s from me…. So I guess the next buyer has to have done 5 deals to qualify? Suffice it to say, I know this car well and am always thrilled to get it back! I don’t like unknown cars, so a car that is familiar to me feels like a nice warm fuzzy….

If you follow me, you know that I don’t simply sell cars with a quick wipe down and shine. I inspect them and then remedy when possible anything they need. This was a really nice car but I noted a slight weep at the Rear main seal (RMS), so we pulled the transmission and ultimately decided to replace the clutch and flywheel. While it wasn’t worn out, I just didn’t feel good installing a 40k mile clutch in this car. In addition we replaced the air/oil separator (AOS), all the drive belts and pulleys and gave it an annual service. 4 brand new Michelin Pilot 4S tires were installed and it was given a full detail and paint correction. When the car arrived it was wearing it’s originally installed Paint Protection Film (PPF) from 2007 and the good news is that is had done an admirable job protecting the paint, but it was tired and so it was removed. All in total we spent close to $10k to make the car the best it could possibly be.
In terms of aesthetics, this car presents really well! The paint is gorgeous with deep gloss, with just a few minor chips just above where the PPF was on the hood. The interior is likewise excellent, with just a few scuffs on the threshold belying its age.
One notable item is that the Carfax does indicate a damage report to the left side in 2009. I do not have any documentation as to what happened but my inspection does reveal that there was a repair made to the left rear quarter and drivers door. The quality is excellent with no giveaways in terms of paint quality, match, fit, etc. but the paint meter does reveal it, so I disclose it.
The car comes complete with 2 keys, books and manuals as well as recent service history. I don’t think you will find a better optioned, more honest, 997 C4S with all the recent work. Simply a stunning car!
