Since its introduction in 1965, the 911 has become one of the most iconic and recognizable names in the sports car world. Although the overall design language has stayed the same throughout the years, each generation has its own unique features and styling to differentiate from previous years. Starting in 2005, Porsche released the 997 generation, which featured updated styling and more powerful engines. Initially it was only offered as a Carrera and Carrera S until 2006, when they released the GT3 and Turbo versions. The turbo version featured a unique front bumper with LED turn-signal trips in the air intakes and large vents, and was powered by twin turbocharged 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engine rated at 480hp. The following year, in 2007, a cabriolet version was released and offered near the same performance numbers as the hardtop, a feat not often achieved with the added weight and reduced aerodynamics usually associated with cabriolets. The car was capable of 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, a mere 0.3 seconds slower than the coupe, and a top speed of 193mph. The base price started at $137,360, but with added-on options, MSRP could reach over $150,000. This particular 911 Turbo was special-ordered from the factory in light blue metallic using Porsche’s premium paint-to-sample program. Complementing the paint is a dark blue leather interior and matching dark blue soft-top. The car rides on the original 19” turbo wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The stereo has been upgraded to a Pioneer touchscreen with iPod integration, and a hidden Passport radar detector system was added. With just over 17,000 miles, this car came from an excellent collection and has been well cared for all its life. All service and maintenance has been done locally by factory technicians at the Porsche dealership. This 911 Turbo is the perfect blend of performance, comfort, luxury and style – all wrapped in a one-of-a-kind color combination.
