Agate Grey Metallic | Coupé | 7 Speed PDK | 3.8 litre flat six | 47,203 kms | SOLD
Designed as the ultimate sports coupe, Porsche's 911 Type 997 Carrera 4S Series II blends an all-wheel-drive chassis, a whopping 3.8 litre, 380 horsepower NA flat-six.
Features wider rear fenders, larger rolling stock, larger air-intake grills and a host of new tech normally reserved for the 911 Turbo.
With sophisticated technologically as advanced as any supercar the Series II has two core pieces of new kit- direct fuel injection and a seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission (PDK) in place the old five-speed Tiptronic S.
It's also trimmed 6kg's off its bulk and produces an additional 15lb of torque over its predecessor, which all translates to a beastly 0-100km/h sprint in just 4.3 seconds.
Yet, it's still smart, 4WD safe and green with the usual 997 traits of usable luggage space, visibility, even a back seat with a throwback to the past borrowing the 996's full-length rear reflector between the tail-lights.
Available here is a 2009 Porsche 911 Type 997 C4S Series II, sold new through Porsche Centre Sydney South and ordered in Agate Grey Metallic over Black leather.
Optioned with crested headrest, the upgraded Bose sound system, sunroof, multi-function steering wheel and travelled just 45,000 kilometres this 911's sheer acceleration has to be felt to be believed. It simply wants to hunt down the apex of a corner and fire out the other side whilst sticking to the road like gum.
Excellently maintained, the interior dash controls, firm leather wrapped steering-wheel and unblemished sport seats are in pristine condition and the exterior shows zero signs of age.
Accompanying the car are the original manuals bound within the leather Porsche wallet, a complete Porsche service history and two original Porsche keys.
The last of the 3.8 litre engines with direct fuel injection (DFI) this C4S makes every drive a spirited drive.
Perfect for mountain-road head clearing sessions on the weekend but also a perfectly poised mobile office for the daily commute this particular C4S presents a rare opportunity to secure a seriously good and undervalued 911.
