With its launch, the 997 Porsche was widely recognized by the automotive world as not only the best 911 ever built, but also more true to the original design. The wide fenders and separate headlight buckets made the car look like a natural continuation of the desirable 993 Porsches. And, sales have shown their popularity. The 997 model is one of the best selling 911s ever. Furthermore, by the 2006 production run, Porsche started building the “M97” engines, which eliminated the pesky issues with the rear main seal IMS bearing.

This Porsche was sold new on January 12th, 2006. It was highly optioned with the following from the factory:

Full leather interior
Power seat package
Self-dimming mirrors
Heated front seats
Tire pressure monitoring system
Sport chrono plus package
PASM (adjustable suspension)
Navigation for PCM
Bose high-end sound package
Remote CD changer
Porsche crest in headrests
Sport exhaust system

The MSRP was $102,000.

Although this first owner only drove the car for 1,700-miles over the next few years, he absolutely loved the car and invested another $25,000 in tasteful upgrades from a reputable local Orange County specialist. These additions include:

Cargraphic full exhaust sytem (headers removed and available…car passes CA strict smog)
Upgraded (3.8L) Plenum & Revo Technik software
TechArt front spoiler, rear spoiler, and side skirt package
TechArt 20” Formula black wheels
Headlight covers
B&M short shifter
H&R spring set (for Euro ride-height)
Tint windows
3M clear bra on front

This 997 looks stunning and aggressive without being over the top. It has that 997.2 Gen II look to it.

In September of 2009, the current owner purchased the car from a local dealer and although he only drove it another 5,000-miles, he was meticulous with his service regimen. Initially, he had services performed by Newport Beach Porsche and then, in 2011, he began to use Vision Motorsports (one of Southern California’s top independent Porsche service centers specializing in water-cooled 911s). He basically brought the car in once a year and gave them carte blanche to perform any services they thought necessary, regardless of miles and cost.

Significant/recent services include:

Service/flush A/C system
Replaced lug nuts because original paint was chipped
Four-wheel alignment
Replace tire pressure monitor sensors
Brake flush
Annual oil changes
Monthly detailed

It is clear that although this car wasn’t driven often, it was frequently serviced. In fact, the owner made a point to take the car out on a regular basis for a short drive to get everything warmed up and make sure everything was working properly. This owner is the perfect person to purchase a lightly used Porsche from. He is obsessed with the car and truly covets it and is not shy about giving it the proper care.

As you can imagine, this 997 C4S is absolutely immaculate. It looks brand new. It is in stunning condition. I couldn’t find a flaw on it. The tires look like new, as do the brakes. Everything is fresh. Even the interior still smells like new leather. The seats look perfect with no signs of wear or use. There are no stains or any other blemish on the interior.

Of course, it drives like it just left Stuttgart yesterday. Everything works perfectly and feels new. I really can’t pick one thing on this Porsche that I would change or fix. It is a 9-year old “new” Carrera 4S.

California registration is paid through January of 2016.

This 997 includes the owner’s manuals/books, tools/tire repair kit, air compressor, service records, original window sticker, and an extra key.

Several people have asked me about PASM (adjustable factory suspension)...yes, this one has it. Also, the exhaust sound is very similar to the factory sport mode. I hope that helps.
