LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 2008 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet.
In 2004, Porsche launched the 997 generation of the 911 which was significant as it brought back the "bug eye" round headlights which made the cars far more attractive . The slightly widened body of the new 997 gave it a more aggressive look. The rolling chassis and the water-cooled flat-six were being utilised from the outgoing 996, improvements in handling balance and grip were substantial. The Metzger 3.6L engine got many improvements to increase output an additional 50hp. The traditional styling makes the 997 generation feel like an homage to the original 911s, while still making the car more futuristic and equipping it with modern technology.
This 997 Turbo Cabriolet is a stunning well optioned example finished in black paint with black leather interior and black cabriolet roof. Powered by the turbocharged 3.6L flat six engine producing 480 hp/460lb-ft sending the power to a 5-speed Tiptronic transmission. Well equipped with a carbon interior package, silver-faced stopwatch, 16-way adaptive sports seats, multifunction steering wheel, smooth leather, Tiptronic buttons on steering wheel, sport chrono Plus, CD changer, 19'' turbo wheels, retractable rear wing, and heated seats.Currently this example has been well maintained, used sparingly on nice summer days accumulating only 26,965 miles from new. Accompanying the sale are owners manuals and two keys.
The 997 has been deemed by many Porsche enthusiasts as one of the best modern water cooled generations of the 911. They are far smaller than more modern generation 911s giving them a lightweight feel of the older air cooled models with modern reliability. This 997.1 Turbo is a great modern sports car that can be used on a daily basis!
