The Porsche Bi-Xenon headlights offer exceptional brightness, even in challenging conditions.

“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 System with touchscreen, hard drive navigation and Bluetooth. The generation 2 cars also do not suffer all of the 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 Ruby Red, a Special Factory Order Colour, similar to Arena Red metallic of the 993 generation 911. This is a very rare, yet striking colour for a 997.2. The diamond finished Carrera Sport lightweight alloy wheels are the perfect contrast to the Ruby Red bodywork. The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. The 911 Carrera has been waxed with Autoglym High Definition 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 Porsche Crest embossed headrests and like the rest of the interior leathers, are in excellent condition and provide a perfect contrast to the Ruby Red 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 provides short gearshift travel and precise lever movement, giving you the highest possible level of accessibility with the minimum of fuss.

The 911 Carrera is also fitted with Sport Chrono Package Plus, which adds a SPORT mode that sharpens the throttle response whilst also adding a dashboard mounted stopwatch to add to the sporting image of the Porsche.

Wheels, Tyres and Brakes

The iconic 911 Coupe body is paired with striking Factory Exclusive order Carrera Sport lightweight alloy wheels which are as new, with Diamond Finished edges and Dark Grey Metallic Spokes. They have matching Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres fitted all round. The brakes are in great condition, with plenty of life left to the brake discs and pads on the front and rear.
