997 is the project code for all models belonging to the sixth generation of 911s built.
The evolution of the Porsche 911 into the 997 was more evolutionary than revolutionary as it was with its predecessor the 996, with the most significant changes being interior and exterior styling. Larger 18 inch wheels were fitted as standard and other engineering improvements include slightly increased power.
Beyond the Carrera a new S version was offered with additional power from a slightly larger engine (3.8), sports suspension and sports exhaust.

The deep Black metallic paint work presents in wonderful condition and shows off a luscious metallic shimmer under our studio lights. Presentation is first class with typical areas such as mirrors and rear arches showing almost no signs of use; storage when not in use has clearly been a priority.
Trim surrounds and rubbers remain soft and supple, whilst headlights that are usually susceptible to clouding are clear and unmarked. The inner arches and underside are excellent with no damage or any signs of corrosion.
The 997 maintains that perfect Porsche balance of style and substance with a cabin swathed in leather and graced with plenty of tech.
The comfort seats retain excellent integrity and show no abnormal signs of wear with stitching and contour in fine condition. Switchgear can often fall foul of grubby fingers and sharp nails although buttons and dials read crisp and clean.
The cabin here points to a careful and fastidious ownership history with PCM unit, gearbox tunnel and carpets all appreciably fresh and unmarked.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The flat 6 is unmistakable Porsche on start up, purposeful yet civilised. The engine performs admirably with a complimenting tight, tactile gearshift and perfectly placed pedals.
The extra hp 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.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 19-inch Sport Design wheels are in excellent condition; finished in sparkling silver and wrapped in a set of Hankook Ventus tyres; all of which show plenty of life remaining.
The tidy red calipers offer an elegant contrast against the deep black bodywork, whilst the car performs very well on test pulling up quickly and smoothly with no signs of hard wear to the discs.
Delivered by Porsche Central Operations, Reading, in May of 2007 this stunning 2S has been serviced on time every two years.
With 4 OPC stamps in the original service book, and having just returned from Porsche Centre Guildford for a minor service and brake fluid change, the car is on the button and ready to go.
A full book pack, spare key and all MOT certificates from new are available in the history file.
