This mega spec C2s look fantastic with its lower factory sports suspension and sport wheels. The Metallic Black paintwork still posses a fantastic deep sheen across its surface, especially here under our studio lights. Considering the 70k miles the car has covered the paintwork is in remarkable condition with no significant marks or scratches, strategically placed PPF on the front of the car and across the side skirts and rear arches has done its job, limiting any damage and protecting the paint below.
Trim surrounds and rubbers remain soft and supple, whilst headlights that are usually susceptible to clouding are clear and unmarked.
The 997 maintains that perfect Porsche balance of style and substance with a cabin swathed in leather and graced with plenty of tech.
The Adaptive Sports Seats are finished in perforated black leather with contrast stitching, retaining excellent integrity and providing superb support with adjustable bolsters both on the base and seat back. The extended leather package covers the dashboard and door tops in leather with the optional sport chrono dial pride of place centre dash.
The Alcantara Sports Steering Wheel and Gear Stick, similar to that found in a GT3, are a nice addition providing a subtle contrast to the shine of the leather that adorns the rest of the interior. They sit in good condition, remaining soft to touch they provide a much more driver focused feel and are a hint to the rare performance options this Carrera has been specified with.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Flat 6 is unmistakable Porsche on start up, purposeful yet civilised. The extra power of the S model really tells in the mid-range, more eager, urgent and can alter personality considerably from motorway cruising to B road blast. The switchable sports exhaust is a desirable option and tunes the noise to a more aggressive and purposeful bark on this exceptional Gen 2 direct injection engine.
The engine performs admirably and is complimented perfectly by the rare option of a Manual Gearbox and the Limited slip differential usually only found on Porsche GT cars. The complete package feels engaging and gives this Carrera S a vigorous edge over a standard model to take it very close to its GT3 team mate.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The optional 19-inch Carrera Sport wheels are wider than standard providing more grip. They remain in excellent condition; finished in sparkling silver and wrapped in a set of N rated Bridgestone Potenza tyres; all of which show a fair amount of tread.
The yellow calipers offer an elegant contrast against the deep black bodywork and signify the Carbon Composite Brakes this particular 911 is equipped with. The car performs exceptionally well on test, pulling up quickly and smoothly as expected.
The addition of M030 Sports Suspension with Limited slip diff really sets this car apart; reducing body roll and providing superior traction to the standard suspension and drive train, it transforms the Carrera into a precise, nimble sports machine.
This Carrera S was exceptionally well specified from new and sold by Porsche Reading on 30/06/2008 as one of the first 997.2 generation models.
