2009 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet (997)
The Porsche 997 Turbo made its debut in February 2006 at the Geneva Motor Show. The car had a few distinguishable features including LED turn signal strips in the air intakes, fog lamps on the corners of the bumpers and large air vents before and behind the rear wheels. There was also a retractable rear wing like on the 996 Turbo.
The engine is the trusted Mezger engine, now delivering 353kW or 473hp with 620Nm of torque. The Turbos on the car are fitted with a two-stage resonance system. VTG turbos are used, a first for Porsche. VTG (Variable Turbine Geometry) incorporates guide vanes on the turbine wheel that changes their angle with exhaust speed, reducing lag at low speeds while opening up to prevent excessive back pressure at high speed.
The performance figures are impressive. Zero to 100 km/h takes 3.9 seconds and zero to 200 km/h comes up in only 12.2 seconds. Top speed is 310km/h.
This specific car has done 46 000 kms from new and has a full-service history. The car has had a few tasteful modifications to beef up the power to about 600 HP! These modifications include items such as upgraded intercoolers, bigger boost pipes, exhaust and a lightweight flywheel and GT3 clutch to put the power down. All the standard parts are available. Finished in Basalt Black metallic with black all leather interior the car has the following factory standard and optional extra features:
- Sport chrono package
- Extended leather package including center console
- Porsche crests embossed on headrests
- Bose sound system
- Multi-function steering wheel
- Updated PCM and climate control interface
A beautiful car in pristine condition with not a single mark on it anywhere!
