  • Late Gen.1 997 Turbo Cabriolet

The fifth iteration of the 911, known as the 997 arrived in 2005. It represented a significant relaunch of the 911 model, the styling was universally praised, and that praise only grew louder with the improved and stylish execution of power that was the Turbo. It naturally adopted the more aggressive stance of past Turbo models and was powered by a variation of the motorsports oriented Mezger 3.6-litre race-derived engine. Basically, the same 3.6 L twin-turbocharged engine as the 996 Turbo, modifications squeezed the power output up to around 473bhp of power being managed by two turbochargers through all four wheels, its ability was never in doubt, yet the Turbo's all-round ability made this 4 wheeled bullet not only exhilarating to drive but also civilised when it had to be. It had VTG (variable turbine geometry), that combined the low-rev boost and quick responses of a small turbocharger with the high-rev power of a larger turbocharger. It also offered higher fuel efficiency compared to the 996 Turbo.

The 997 Turbo featured a new all-wheel-drive system, similar to the one found on the Cayenne. The new PTM (Porsche Traction Management) system incorporated a clutch-based system that varied the amount of torque to the wheels to avoid tyre slippage. According to Porsche, redirecting torque to control oversteer or understeer resulted in neutral handling as well as greatly improved performance in all weather conditions. This 2008 late Gen.1 997 Turbo Cabriolet has been well specified from new. Finished in a striking and classic Porsche colour combination of Silver, with a full Red leather interior, it has covered a modest 49,864 miles from new at the time of consignment. In the market for the flagship 911, this model offers a very attractive package of the Turbo with the Cabriolet option. It is offered with a handbook, 2 keys and V5c document.
