With its launch, the 997 Porsche was widely recognized by the automotive world as truer to the original 911 design. The pronounced fenders and separate headlight buckets made the car look like a natural continuation of the 993 Porsches. Sales on the used market have shown their popularity. Furthermore, by the 2006 production run, Porsche used the “M97” engine, which has been regarded as far more reliable than the previous model. With 355hp this model 911 S is athletic, analog, and fun to drive.
This Carrera S was built in July of 2006 and sold new on October 27th, 2006. It was tastefully ordered with the following factory options:
- Self diming mirrors
- Silver-faced stopwatch
- Heated front seats
- Seat memory – driver
- 19” Carrera Classic wheels
- Wheel caps with colored crest
- Sport Chrono Package Plus
- Bose high end sound package
- Black mats – Porsche lettering
- Power seat package (12-way with lumbar support both left and right)
- Black top
- Arctic silver metallic paint
The total MSRP was over $99,700.
The first two owners only had the car for 3-years/9k-miles before it was sold to an enthusiast in Scottsdale, Arizona on November 17th, 2009. This owner kept the car for 8-years/18k-miles before selling it to the current SoCal owner. The current owner purchased this 997 S in June of 2018 with 28k-miles. For the last year/3k-miles he and his wife have mostly used it as an extra weekend toy to participate in PCA events. In the last 10-months, the following services were performed:
- Clutch kit and crank seal
- Upgraded Bluetooth radio with backup camera (original radio included)
- Front tires
- Door sill coverings
This Porsche is in excellent condition. It is clear that it was always garaged and well cared-for. The paint looks great with minimal signs of use. The soft top has no tears or rips and looks new. The glass is all original, including the windshield. There are no significant chips or cracks. All the trim, rubber, and lenses look great with no cracks or signs of age. The factory 19” wheels are in good shape with some minor curb rash and are wearing Pirelli PZero tires with about 75%-life. The front and rear brakes have over 75% life remaining as well.
The interior looks equally as nice with hardly any signs of wear. The leather seats have no tears or cracks and just the lightest wear on the driver exit bolster. The rear seats, carpet, door panels, soft-top headliner, and dash all look perfect. All the buttons, gauges, and other electric functions work. The A/C system blows cold.
The driving experience is wonderfully analog with very direct responses to driver inputs. The car starts easily and holds a smooth idle. Power is immediate and linear with no hesitations as it builds revs. The brakes have a nice initial bite with no fading or pulling. The clutch feels great and the transmission shifts smoothly with no grinding or slipping. Handling is crisp and precise. The car tracks straight.
California registration is paid through June of 2019 and it passed CA’s strict smog/emissions test.
This 997 S includes all of the owner’s manuals/books, maintenance book, tools/tire repair kit, wheel lock, 2-keys, wind screen, and the original radio.

This vehicle is sold “as-is” with no warranty, written or implied. In some cases, the vehicle does have the remaining factory warranty still in place and will be described above if that is the case. All taxes and fees are the responsibility of the buyer and are not included in the listed price. All vehicle sales will require a $170 administration fee. The vehicle listed is described to the best of our ability. The information is based on our own research and statements made to us by the previous owner(s). To the best of our knowledge, the above information is accurate. We are not responsible for errors in our description of options or any other details. The above-mentioned vehicle is used and can be expected to show some wear and tear. It is not a brand new vehicle. We do welcome all local pre-purchase inspections on vehicles in order to verify condition.
We appreciate the countless calls from brokers and dealers. As much as we would love to quickly “wholesale” this car to industry partners so they can make a quick profit, the car is on consignment (as are all of our offerings) and the owners have the final say.
If you have actually taken the time to read this far in our detailed description, I can’t imagine there are any questions you may have. However, if there is something I missed or you would prefer to hear the warm sound of a human voice (mine) reiterating the research I’ve provided above, I would be happy to help.
If you put our company name in Google (AutoKennel®) you will see that we have been a long-time part of the Porsche community and have worked extremely hard to earn the positive reputation you will find. Feel free to reach out to our local PCA chapter (www.pcaocr.org) and the board members are familiar with us. Most in the club have known us for most of our 25-year membership involvement. Of course, if you would like more references, you will find countless testimonials on our website as well.
