Porsche Certificate of Authenticity
The second generation Porsche 911/997 (997.2) received several updates and improvements. These included a new more powerful engine thanks to direct-injection. The 3.8-liter Carrera S got 385 horsepower and 310 ft/lbs torque. Also, the prior issues with the IMS bearing were eliminated altogether as these new motors did not have a bearing. New styling of the lights really helped finish off the already improved 997 looks. Furthermore, to celebrate the introduction of the 997.2 and it’s all new PDK transmission, Porsche created a special “Launch Edition.” These unique examples were specially packaged with specific options as well as the unique color of Porsche Racing Green. Reportedly, there were fewer than 400 of these built for the North American market.
This Carrera S was built on July 7th 2008 and sold new by Inskip Porsche of Warwick, Rhode Island on October 16th, 2008. It was well optioned from the factory with the following “launch” equipment:
- 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)
- Self-dimming mirrors
- Heated front seats
- Heated steering wheel
- Bluetooth interface for mobile phone
- Sport chrono package plus
- Bose high end sound package
- XM radio
- PAG Launch code
- Floor mats in interior color
- Universal audio interface
- Porsche Racing Green Metallic paint
- Power comfort seats with driver memory
In total, the MSRP was $99,435. Furthermore the previous owner refinished the wheels in Porsche grey. The current owner installed the factory sport exhaust with toggle switch on dash and the PASM sport suspension functionality. Also, the car has been hard-wired for V1 radar detector with hidden display.
The first owner lived near the selling dealer. He kept the car for just over 3-years before trading it back into the same dealer in March of 2013 with 16k-miles. It was sold to another owner in Connecticut who serviced the car at Porsche of Fairfiled. This owner kept the car for about a year before selling it with 22k-miles to the current NY/NJ resident. This owner also has a property in Florida. Shortly after purchasing the car, this owner shipped it out to Southern California and stored it here for a few years. His son lives here and used it when he came out to visit. Eventually, he shipped the car to his other home in Miami Beach, Florida. This owner is a long time enthusiast who has owned countless unique Porsche. For the past 5-years/16k miles, he mostly used this 997.2 as a weekend car. Highlights of recent services performed include:
- Front and rear brake rotors and pads (10/18 @ 37,874 miles)
- Paint correction and CQuartz ceramic coating (11/18)
- Oil service (2/18 @ 37,610 miles)
- Installed factory sport exhaust system with control switch (10/16 @ 33,888-miles)
- 3M clear bra on full front of vehicle (3/14 @ 22,091-miles)
This C2S is in near new condition and evident that it was owned by enthusiasts who properly looked after it. The paint is in excellent shape with minimal signs of use. There are some tiny flaws on the front bumpers and lower rockers as well as a few nicks in the clear bra…fairly minimal. We’ve tried to point out any/all flaws in our photos. The paint is original and verified with a paint meter. The front fenders, hood, front bumper and side mirrors have been protected with clear film. All the glass is original including the windshield. All the exterior lights work properly and the lenses are in good shape. The original wheels have a few spots of minor curb rash and are wearing Yokohama Advan Neova tires with about half life. Brakes have about 75% life.
The interior is very nice and shows hardly any signs of use. The leather seats look fresh with only very light exit bolster wear on driver’s seat. The rear seats, carpet, headliner, and dash look as new. The door panels look great with one tiny flaw on the driver side (see pic). All the gauges work properly as do all the electric functions such as windows, sunroof, mirrors, radio, and air conditioning.
This 997.2 drives just like new. It starts easily and has nice power delivery. The transmission shifts smoothly and operates properly. The brakes have incredibly initial bite with no fading, however, sometimes they do squeak. The handling is crisp and intuitive. Turn in is immediate and the car tracks straight. Everything feels and drives as it did when new.
This Carrera S just passed California’s strict smog/emissions test.
This C2S comes with an extra key (2 total), original owner’s manuals with vinyl case, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, many service records/most history, factory tool kit, flat tire repair kit,

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.
