Background
Production of the second generation 997 series 911 Carrera S began in 2009, 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.

“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 pliant and handles brilliantly – a great mix.”

Exterior
Our hand selected Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet looks stunning in its metallic coat of Aqua Blue, a striking colour for the 997.2, especially with the red LED rear lights. The metallic silver 19-inch Carrera S II lightweight alloy wheels are the perfect compliment to the paintwork. The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front and clear 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. The Metropole Blue convertible fabric hood is fully electric and operates perfectly, stowing away in its own compartment behind the rear seats. It has been treated with the Autoglym hood cleaner and water repellent treatment so is in as new condition. The convertible hood can be operated remotely with the Porsche keys or even on the move, up to around 35mph should the weather change suddenly.

Interior
The heated leather Comfort Seats with 2-way electric adjustment and the rest of the extended Ocean Blue natural leather interior, are in excellent condition and provide a perfect pairing to the Aqua Blue bodywork and Metropole Blue Hood. 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 S is equipped with the 3.8 litre flat six DFI engine, which addressed all previous weaknesses of the 996 and 997 first generation engines. The 911 Carrera S engine produces 385bhp and 310ft-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. The optional 7-speed double-clutch PDK transmission system provides instant changes, unleashing the power of the engine with minimal fuss.

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

Our 911 Carrera S 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. PASM equipped cars also sit 10mm lower than non PASM cars.

Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our 911 Carrera S comes fitted with the optional 19-inch Carrera S II lightweight alloy wheels finished in metallic silver, which are original, unmarked, free of damage and corrosion. The brake discs and pads are in excellent condition. The tyres are Pirelli P-Zero high performance tyres, with plenty of tread left on them, we have just replaced the rears as part of our preparation.
