I am selling my 2006 Porche Carrera S Coupe (997.1):
• Naturally aspirated flat-6 (355HP)
• 6 speed manual gear box
• Exterior color: black
• Interior color: beige / tan
No accidents, all original paint. Everything works as expected.
The "S" model comes standard with:
• 3.8L displacement (instead of 3.6L on the regular Carrera)
• Upgraded brakes (from the Carrera Turbo)
• Sport chrono package (a button firms up suspension and sharpens the throttle response + chrono clock)
• Xeon headlights
• Electric sun roof
• All-ways electric seats with memory
• Automatic front windshield wipers
• Rear window wiper
• Original infotainment system with: navigation, single-CD player and steering-wheel control buttons
• Wireless garage door opener button
• Little after-market extra: plastic liner under the trunk to prevent items sticking above from denting the hood from the inside.
• The car was initially leased from Hoehn Porsche in Carlsbad (southern California) in August 2005.
• A gentlemen who lives near Campbell, CA bought it from Stevens Creek Porsche (Santa Clara, CA) in early 2011.
• I bought it from Import Connection in Campbell (https://www.import-connection.com) where it was on consignment in November 2017.
• Car fax: download the pdf from my Google drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/11mjsesHGaNd2djM2ajyd2OIHW0HF192B/view?usp=sharing
• The car has been maintained rigorously on schedule.
• The car will come with all maintenance records since the second owner.
• Recent / notable maintenance: 60k service + rear brakes job (late 2019), water pump (late 2018).
• Upcoming maintenance: oil change at 65k and front brakes job.
IMS and other pleasantries:
• No IMS / RMS or AOS work done on this car - everything is original.
• The car does not show any symptoms related to these.
• The car has the latest/improved factory IMS bearing (which supposedly reduced the failure rates from 10% to 1%, but since there are no "real" statistics on this...). Changing the IMS on the 997.1 requires to lift the entire engine out of the car (not like 996 or 986). In addition, the factory bearing needs to be forcibly pulled out of the engine.
My mechanic advised to go with the "do nothing" option, I decided to follow his advice since he's a nice guy...
Do not contact me if you are not funded (or at least very close to being funded) .
1) Contact me via email: we'll arrange for a time to have a quick phone call.
2) Phone call: I will answer your questions and we can schedule a test drive if you are interested.
• I will not negotiate the price over email or the phone, please come see the car first and we will talk money if you are interested.
• I will only accept a cashier's check from your bank: we go to your bank together, and I see the bank's teller hand the check to you so that I know it is authentic and funded.
Only serious inquiries for a reasonable price! Carfax estimates the retail value at over 36k, the car is listed for less than that so it is already very fairly priced. I am not in a rush or in the need to sell.
Do not contact me if you "want to have a look at it" or are from a consignment / car-flipping company, you will just be wasting everyone's time.
Thanks for Looking!
