The world is a better place thanks to the 997 Porsche 911—at least in the world of those who care about Porsche 911s. The 997 was Porsche’s reconciliation for the dramatic departure that it made with the 996 911. When the air-cooled age ended with the legendary 993, its successor, the 996, had herculean shoes to fill. When the 996 lacked the personality of the air-cooled cars (and how could it not have), it stoked the fear that Porsche had lost its way. It wasn’t that the 996 was bad (in fact it was excellent), many just weren’t ready for the change that it brought. The 997 put those fears to rest, and in the eyes of many, steered the 911 ship back on course. The 997 featured refined, yet classic styling, significantly improved build quality, and proper headlights. In 2009, Porsche released the second-generation 997 (the 997.2) featuring subtle exterior and interior revisions along with the direct injection (DFI) engines that were free of the intermediate shaft bearing (IMS) issues of the 996 and early 997s. The 997.2 was produced at roughly half the volume of the 997.1, making them rarer in comparison. As the evolution of the Porsche has crept ever forward, the 997.2 strikes perfect balance of modern and classic in the water-cooled timeline.

Summary

 exterior photo

This 2010 997.2 Porsche 911 Carrera is an outstanding example of a 997.2. Finished in triple black—Black paint over Black Standard leather over Black 19-inch wheels, it makes a statement everywhere it goes. And with 92,000 well-cared-for miles on the odometer, it represents a fantastic value in the 997.2 market. Factory options include all of the standard 997.2 kit outlined above, along with some tasteful upgrades and highlights including an AWE quad-tipped exhaust and red brake calipers. It was originally allocated by Flemington Car and Truck Country Porsche and sold by Porsche Conshohocken, in Pennsylvania. It remained in Pennsylvania under the first owner, leaving at just over 21,000 miles, followed by stints in Virginia and North Carolina, and Kansas. In 2017 Greensboro Porsche sold it to the previous owner, who was a Kansas based aerospace mechanic. We purchased it from them earlier this year and brought it to Colorado. The Carfax is clean and shows regular maintenance at Porsche dealers and independent specialists. The maintenance records include invoices from Hendrick Porsche of Charlotte, North Carolina. The previous owner did the majority of his own work, reporting regular oil changes, brake fluid flushes, along with replacing the air-oil separator, throttle body, spark plugs, coil packs, center X-pipe, and updating the LED taillights. In preparation for sale, we replaced the rear brake pads, rotors, and sensors, and mounted fresh Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rear tires to match the fronts. This is a fantastic example of a Porsche 997.2 911 Carrera ready for its new owner. Its condition is excellent and detailed in depth below. We will include a Porsche Club membership with the sale, and private performance driving instruction is also available.

Exterior

The exterior of this 911 Carrera 2 is great, thanks to the front bumper, hood, fenders, mirrors, and doors being protected by clear bra. The clear bra on the front bumper and door edges has some wear, but we opted to leave it in place. There are a handful of shallow dents around the vehicle and superficial imperfections on the non-clear bra protected panels. The car has been repainted from the rear quarter panels forward. Those panels paint gauge at between 7 and 12 mils. The match is perfect (thanks to it begin black). We do not know why it was painted, but there is no evidence of any underlying damage and the Carfax is clean. The exterior trim is in great condition with minor UV fade. The glass around the car is excellent; the windshield has no chips or cracks, only moderate pitting. The headlights are not foggy, having been protected by clear bra. The turn signals, marker lights, and taillights are in excellent condition; the driver’s side front marker has a small crack. The wheels have no curb rash and are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires; we replaced the rears in preparation for sale.

Interior

Overall the interior is in great shape. There are no odors and it has never been smoked in. There are no rips or tears in the carpet and the factory floor mats are in good shape. The steering wheel leather is good shape with no failed stitching; the left spoke trim piece does have visible wear. The gauges all function correctly. The alcantara headliner is in excellent condition. The door cards are clean; the window switch and door handle surrounds on the driver’s side have moderate wear. The heat blows hot and the air-conditioning blows cold. The stereo sounds excellent. There is typical wear on the shifter sound and emergency brake handle. The driver’s seat has minor creasing and minor wear of the finish on the outer bolster; the passenger seat is excellent. All interior functions, options, power accessories, and controls work correctly. The multimedia screen and instrument cluster have no blown-out pixels. The cup holders are functional. The frunk carpet is clean. Two keys are included with the car, along with owners’ manuals and records binder.

Mechanical

Our independent Porsche specialist found little to gripe about on our mechanical inspection. The previous owner addressed lots of preventative items as outlined in the Summary Paragraph. The car starts on command, the MA102 engine idles smoothly, and pulls very strongly to redline (once the oil temp is warmed up, of course). It does not smoke. There are no mechanical warning lights. It has no leaks or seeps. From what we can tell the clutch is original, but the clutch take-up is correct and does not slip. It should not need replacement in the near to mid-term future. The shifter is tight and precise. The suspension and steering are tight, and there are no clunks or noises. The brakes are fantastic; we replaced the rear rotors, pads, and sensors in preparation for sale. There is ample pad life remaining on the front. We ensure it passes and pay for emissions in the State of Colorado.
