“Behind the second-generation 997’s redesign lies one of the most significant sports cars of the moment. The 911 has always made sense for its practicality and dynamism, but now it’s even more polished, even quicker and significantly greener. It’s even better to drive. Porsche has played down the changes to the suspension, but they have completely eliminated the old car’s tendency to bob its nose up and down in response to changes in road surface and elevation. So you can lean on the front end with far more confidence now, while the 911’s trademark steering remains intact, offering stacks of feedback and instant turn-in. It’s an odd experience for anyone who’s driven 911s before, but there’s no doubt that the new car is more capable even on the standard non-adjustable dampers our base Carrera came with. It’s pliant and handles brilliantly – a great mix.”
CAR Magazine 2008

Background
Production of the second generation 997 series 911 Carrera began in mid 2008, it featured an all new engine with Direct Fuel Injection DFI which is mounted 10mm lower in the car, revised suspension system, new front bumper with larger air intakes, LED rear and front daylight running lights, all new Porsche Communication Management PCM 3.0 System with touchscreen, hard drive navigation for UK and Europe. The generation 2 cars also do not suffer all of the potential problems of early 997 gen 1 cars, including IMS bearing failures, RMS leaks and Borescoring, all of these issues were eradicated by Porsche when they designed the all-new direct fuel injection DFI 911 engines for the generation 2 997s.

Exterior
Our hand selected Porsche 911 Carrera looks stunning in its metallic coat of Arctic Silver. The 5-Spoke 19-inch Carrera Classic lightweight alloy wheels finished in BBS Metallic Silver are the perfect pairing to the Arctic Silver bodywork. The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. The 911 Carrera has been 3-stage machine polished and waxed with Autofinesse Soul Carnauba Wax by us, which will help protect the paintwork and repel surface contaminants. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front and rear lights, which are free from any damage or moisture buildup. The windows drop as they should when you open the door. The engine and boot struts also operate as they should.

Interior
The black leather seats come with optional 2-stage heating and like the rest of the interior leathers, are in excellent condition and provide a perfect contrast to the Arctic Silver metallic bodywork. There are no marks or signs of wear to any of the trim, panels or switchgear, with the leather retaining a wholly fresh appearance throughout.

Engine and Transmission
Our 911 Carrera is equipped with the 3.6 litre flat six DFI engine, which addressed all previous weaknesses of the 996 and 997 first generation engines. The 911 Carrera engine produces 340bhp and 288ft-lb of torque. The axle load distribution of approximately 40:60 ensures high directional stability and superb road behaviour. The engine starts cleanly when cold or hot, there is no smoke whatsoever either at startup or when driving. There are no unusual sounds or rattles when the engine is running.

With its compact design and low weight, the 6 speed manual gearbox is a simple, direct way to tap into the power of the 911 Carrera. The manual transmission system has been further improved with the factory fitted short shift kit, which reduces the gearshift travel and increases the precision of changes, giving you the highest possible level of accessibility with the minimum of fuss.

Our 911 Carrera is equipped with the highly desired switchable sports suspension system, PASM, which includes the dashboard switch that stiffens the suspension in an instant, increasing connection to the road. The ride height is also reduced by 10mm as a result compared to a 911 Carrera without PASM fitted.

The 911 Carrera is also equipped with the highly desired Porsche Switchable Exhaust PSE system, which unleashes a more sporty sound both on acceleration and lift off.

Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
The iconic 911 Coupe body is paired with BBS Metallic Silver finished 19-inch Carrera Classic lightweight alloy wheels which have been recently refurbished, so they are as new. The alloy wheels are fitted with matching Pirelli P-Zero Porsche N2 Rated high performance tyres with lots of tread left. The rare optional PCCB Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes are phenomenal, drilled and vented discs front and rear with their striking Speed Yellow callipers. They have been checked for condition and damage – they are in excellent condition.
