2006 Porsche 997 Carrera-Guards Red on Black Leather, 6-speed, PASM, 19″ Carrera Classics, nicely optioned, just 47k miles, gorgeous!-$41,995
A good friend of mine was attempting to make fun of me recently when he said “You know Nathan, it seems like you only have about 20 customers and you trade the same cars among those same 20 people…”. I laughed as his math is a little off but frankly I do trade the same cars among a tight knit group of people. Why do I do that? Because I am NOT selling new cars, so I can’t call up Porsche and order new inventory. I instead have to find older Porsche’s that meet my standard and that IS the challenge. So when I have a known car that has been loved and cared for by a client I know and trust, that IS the best car to have. This car is just one such car….
This car was traded to me in 2014 by a client and I immediately knew just the right customer for it. I made a single phone call and she said I’ll take it! We have kept in touch over the last 6 years and she has decided to invest some money into her house and eventually upgrade to a 991, so she asked if I would help her sell her prized 997. Of course! I loved this car when I got it the 1st time and she has been a devoted owner. Here are the basics:
- Guards Red Exterior on Black Standard Leather
- Black Mats- $115
- Power Seat Package- $1,550
- Bi-Xenon lights- $1,090
- Heated Front Seats- $480
- 19″ Carrera Classic Wheels- $1,940
- Wheel Caps w/ Colored Crests- $185
- PASM- $1,990
- Sport Chrono- $920
- Module for telephone PCM- $960
- Navigation- $2,070
- BOSE- $1,390
Original MSRP $84,785
This car has been loved since new and it shows. It has never been damaged in any way and of course has a clean title and Carfax. The exterior has no notable flaws and the entire front end has been covered in XPEL clear film with no seams, so it can be used without worry! In addition the entire car has been treated to CQuartz Ceramic Coating so it just glistens! The interior is likewise without notable wear, smells, etc. It comes with both the original Porsche carpet mats and a set of fitted winter mats as well.
Now, of course in order for me to stamp the car my quality it has to be brought up to standard, so here is what I am busy with before I get the full listing up:
- 4 New “N” Spec Pirelli P-Zero tires
- Full inspection and annual service- anything noted will be remedied and it will be current on all services
- Replace front hood lift shocks
- Right rear wheel has a slight amount of curb rash, so that is being refinished
- The crew at Metropolitan Detail will make sure the car is immaculate inside and out
Overall this is an amazing 997, with the right options, with the right history, in a classic color combination that is simply immaculate. Are you going to be the next owner to carry the torch for this Porsche?
