2006 Porsche 911 Carrera
In 1923 Ferdinand Porsche moved to Stuttgart to become Technical
Director at Daimler, where he assumed responsibility for the
development of the famous S, SS and SSK models, while also helping
to develop truck and aero-engines, etc. When his contract expired,
he returned to Austria where he at first worked as General Director
of Steyr. In 1931 Porsche went into business for himself, starting
his own design company in Stuttgart. And the rest as they say is
For consignment a 6-cylinder fuel injected, 5-speed automatic
transmission personal rocket ship in the form of a 2006 Carrera
Coupe. This car presents in beautiful condition, with a few minor
faults seen outside and inside. It is mechanically very sound, well
maintained, and has a mere 59,617 miles clocked on her. From the
minds of German engineers, and the spirit of Ferdinand Porsche a
great sports car priced reasonably...Schnell!
With the clean lines reminiscent of models that have come before
like the 356 Speedster, this car cuts through the wind like a bird
in flight. Seams are kept to a minimum, and the ones that need to
exist, are minding their gaps incrementally well. The entire car is
bathed in beautiful Midnight Blue Metallic. We note a few
scratches, chips and dings throughout the body as would be expected
of a car this age that has been driven and enjoyed. Xenon
headlights sealed in their aerodynamic environment lead the way,
and on the sloped rear a speed activated spoiler raises and lowers
automatically. On top is a factory electric sunroof to let Mother
Nature shine all her glory upon you. Big 18-inch wheels with minor
curb rash are wrapped in Continental Extreme Contact rubber makes
this car handle like a cat on the carpet.
Sport luxury would best describe the interior of this sports car.
Biscuit leather abounds and has fine stitching holding everything
together. The dual high back buckets are power adjustable, very
clean and offer up a heated option as well. An aerodynamically
designed console races forward towards the dash, and has a nice
storage compartment, and the leather covered and booted shift
lever. The dash front houses the Bose high end sound package,
climate controls, and a PCM color display which includes
navigation. In front of the driver is a cascade of circular
instruments, keeping you abreast of all the car's vitals. These are
black faced gauges with white lettering and are fronted by the
original steering wheel, which shows virtually no wear. Above a
tight headliner in suede saddle leather wraps everything up above
nice and tightly, while below clean thick pile carpet compliments
the interior leather.
A water cooled 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engine with 4 valves per
cylinder drives the rear tires. This mill is fed by electronic fuel
injection and has a 5-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission
backing it up which puts power to a 3.56 axle.
All very clean underneath with a mass of interwoven tubes and
pipes, all packed into the rear of this car. Slight corrosion is
noted but is mostly unremarkable. Plenty of ground effects panels
cover most of the underside. A mix of vented and perforated disc
brakes along with ventilated disc brakes are grabbed by 4 piston
calipers and have active brake differential, anti-lock braking, and
this car sports traction control.
This car fires right up and has the beautiful exhaust sound that is
a signature of Porsche. My drive included some exhilarating
acceleration, especially on the top end...it just wants to continue
to pick up speed. It handles very nimbly and is a thrill ride to
A very nicely preserved example of Porsche technology from 2006.
This car has been well kept and maintained and put up after each
play date. The interior is barely used looking, and it sports
plenty of power to push you into your seat even more
