Not all Porsches are created equal. For example, this 2005 Carrera S wasn't just a performance package on the standard 911, it made it a higher tier car. Coming from factory with a bigger 3.8-liter engine, Porsche Active Suspension Management technology, larger brakes with red calipers, larger wheels, HID headlights, a sports steering wheel, and aluminum interior trim were all additions included in this hotter version on the 911.
2005 is a pivotal year in the 911's history. This is the debut of the 997 redesign that bought the 911 back to an appearance closer to the original. In fact, the fascia proved so popular, it's hard for many to tell the difference between this one and a brand new 911 coupe. Plus, this one in particular has had a level of care and maintenance that it feels nearly brand new. Just take some time to look at the Arctic Silver Metallic paint. It's a timeless color on a German sports car, and so when it's maintained this well, the Porsche becomes ageless. This obviously is a garage kept car, and curbs and other obstacles were carefully kept at bay. And the 19-inch Carrera S wheels look amazing with Carrera S wide body stance.
Porsche interiors are some of the most finely crafted in the automotive world. With just the tight amount of shiny alloy, it's not overly flashy, and instead gives the impression of high-quality materials and craftsmanship that is worthy of the price. The black suede and leather bucket seats are engineered to both keep you planted in the corners and comfortable on long trips. This is loaded with automatic climate control, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, sunroof, and power everything. Because this is a modern classic, you also get modern safety features such as front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. But even with the premium upgrades, this one continues all the great 911 traditions. So the ignition key still goes on the left, and the tachometer gets the most prominent placement as the largest gauge that boldly sits in the center.
The new Carrera S specific liquid-cooled 3.8-liter flat-six brought a significant power upgrade in 2005 with 355 horsepower and 295 pounds of torque. This coupe has its original motor, and just like the rest of the car, you can instantly tell it has been babied. You know this from its average of less than 4,000 miles per year, or you can see it just by taking one look at the exceptionally clean engine bay. This one is perfect for everything from commuting to hammering down the backroads thanks to the five-speed Tiptronic transmission. You can use it as a full automatic, or shift when you want via the gearstick and steering wheel buttons. The Porsche 911 is one of the best engineered sports cars around. You can see it in the details, like the flat underbelly for improved aerodynamics. You feel it on the road with an exceptionally well balanced suspension (especially for a rear-engine car.) This is accomplished by performance features working in harmony, such as the active suspension management, upgraded four-wheel disc brake package, and Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
