Since it first stunned the world in 1963, the iconic 911 coupe has been through nine successful generations in its role as the backbone of Porsche. Generation six, known internally at Porsche as Type 997 is fast becoming known as the single best modern 911 money can buy.

With the latest type 991 generation attracting flak for its electrically assisted steering as Porsche stare at a future of turbo-charged fuel-efficient engines, 997 prices have started to harden. In short there’s never been a better time to buy.

An ideal blend of racing heritage and driver centric technology, the 997 was dripping with cool kit.

The ultimate S model featured the new PASM switchable adaptive damping as standard, variable-ratio steering and PSM stability control, then there was the optional Sport Chrono pack, which as well as the retro style dash-mounted stopwatch offered a Sport button, which firms the throttle and the damping while loosening PSM’s reins.

“It’s a seriously quick car and it’s the one that most enthusiasts want” Evo Magazine, Feb 18 2013 on the 997 Carrera S Buyers Guide.

The S also offered extra top-end power and mid-range torque from the larger 3.8-litre engine, but also for the improved spec – bigger brakes, 19inch wheels and Xenon lights.

The car offered is an as new 911 Type 997 Carrera S delivered new by Scuderia Veloce Porsche, Sydney in June of 2005 ordered in the sharp combination of Solid Black over Black leather trim and has travelled just 34,000 kilometres.

Brilliantly optioned, this car features:

- 19inch Carrera S alloy wheels with colour crested centre caps

- Multifunction steering wheel with smooth leather

- Sports Chromo

- Park Assist

- Silver Faced Stop Watch for Dash

Exceptionally well maintained both inside and out this 6 speed manual Carrera S is accompanied by a complete Porsche and Sydney based specialist service history, the last of which was in December of 2018 perfectly prepping it for its next custodian.

All tell-tale signs highlight how well this car has been kept; the brilliant depth of finish to the paintwork, the matte finish still present across all of the interior touch-points and switch gear and the low kilometers- indicative signs of a cherished car.

Economy, safety, practicality, robust build quality, searing performance and ludicrous grip levels all means the type 997 911 Carrera meets the most exacting demands of 21st-century drivers both for the Monday to Friday grind and weekend head clearing escapes.

An opportunity to experience what many 911 purists believe to be the greatest ever generation of its kind and with values on the increase, this low kilometre, fully serviced and brilliantly well maintained Carrera S is a must have.
