Agate Grey Metallic | Coupé | 7 Speed PDK | 3.8 litre | 50,477 kms | SOLD
Designed as the ultimate sports coupé, Porsche’s 911 Type 997 Carrera 4S Gen 2 blends an all-wheel-drive chassis, a whopping 3.8 litre, 380 horsepower NA flat-six with wide rear fenders, larger rolling stock, larger air-intake grills and a host of tech normally reserved for the 911 Turbo.
With sophisticated technologically as advanced as any supercar the Gen 2 has two core pieces of kit to give it blistering speed with a refined driving dynamic- 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 over the previous generation 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 stunning 2009 Porsche 911 Type 997 C4S Gen 2, 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 50,000 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 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 still kept within the leather Porsche wallet, a complete Porsche service history and both original Porsche keys.
The last of the 3.8 litre engines with direct fuel injection (DFI) this C4S makes every drive a spirited one.
Perfect for mountain-road head clearing sessions 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.
