Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in Feb 2006, the 997.1 Turbo is the sixth generation of Porsche’s legendary 911 Turbo. Improvements over the previous generation were numerous, but most noticeable was the return to the icon oval headlight design. Aesthetically the turbo model is distinguished by its wide body shell, side intakes, revised front and rear bumpers, and hydraulic rear wing. And, thanks to the use of aluminum in key places, it is about 90 lbs lighter than its predecessor. Fortunately, that weight savings doesn’t come at the expense of comfort. The interior is trimmed in leather and wood, with high end audio, navigation, ice cold a/c, and many other comforts for the occupants to enjoy.
The engine, a twin turbocharged 3.6L flat 6, is derived from the legendary “Mezgar” dry sumps. It features two variable vane turbochargers, a first for a production Porsche. The Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) results in reduced turbo lag at low speeds, and reduced back pressure at higher RPM. Output is a mind boggling 480 hp at 6,000 RPM, with 460 lb-ft of torque from 1,950 - 5,000 RPM, and a redline of 6,750 RPM.
Power is sent to all four wheels through a 5 speed Tiptronic S transmission. While the purists might prefer a manual, the Tiptronic S outperforms it, with 0-60 accomplished in only 3.4s, a quarter mile time of 11.9s at 120 MPH, and a top speed of 193 MPH.
Despite no longer being the fastest 911 Turbo available, the 997 just might be the best. The chassis is a favorite of enthusiasts for its look, feeling, and performance. The engine offers supercar performance, with sports car level ownership cost. And, in a world that continues to become more digital, the 997 Turbo still offers its users an analog feel. For all these reasons we feel this generation Turbo is a modern classic, and one that will be sought after for years to come.
This exceptional 2007 Porsche Turbo (997.1) is a lifelong California car, with a clean CARFAX history, extensive records, and a recent service from Salerno Motorsports. The exterior is finished in the gorgeous Carmon Red Metallic, with factory turbo wheels, and red calipers. The front bumper, hood, and fenders are protected by full Paint Protection Film (PPF). The interior is finished in Sand Beige, with the optional full leather interior, adaptive sport seats, and Sycamore interior trim package.
This well equipped 997 Turbo had an MSRP of $133,860, and features a long list of sought after options: Sport Chrono Package, Sand Beige Full Leather Interior, Sycamore Interior Trim Package, Adaptive Sport Seats with Leather Seat Backs, Heated Seats, Multifunction Steering Wheel, Rear Window Wiper, Parking Assist, and 5 Speed Tiptronic S transmission.
The current owner had the audio system professionally upgraded with a Kenwood Excelon Reference in dash touchscreen headunit in 2019. This unit features wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Garmin Navigation, Bluetooth, USB, HD Radio, and CD/DVD. Additionally, a license plate mounted rear camera was installed. Cost of improvements was about $3200. Original PCM, and an owners manual for the Kenwood is included with the car.
The CARFAX history documents four owners from new, with regular maintenance performed by Niello Porsche from new to 92,319 miles. The fourth, and current owner, acquired the car in November 2019 from Niello Porsche. Shortly after acquiring the car, a coolant leak developed from the engine area. This led to an extensive, engine out repair, in which Niello Porsche replaced “all top end hoses, plastic lines, and water pump”. The coolant reservoir, deflection pulleys, and several upper end seals were also replaced at this time. Other recent notable work includes replacement of spark plugs and ignition coils by Niello Porsche in July 2017 at 86,915 miles.
In May of 2020, Salerno Motorsports began servicing the vehicle. In preparation for this sale, an inspection, oil service, brake flush, transmission service, differential service, and AWD controller service were performed by Salerno Motorsports. More detailed service records are available upon request.
Two keys, books, upgraded audio system, clean CARFAX history, clean AutoCheck history, lifelong California car, extensive records with regular maintenance from Niello Porsche, and a recent complete service and inspection from Salerno Motorsports. This fully sorted 997 Turbo needs nothing but a new home. An incredible value for only $59,997.
