The Classic Sale at Silverstone Festival 2023 Cars 194 Registration: SM12 WMD Chassis No.: WP0ZZZ99ZDS760067 Estimate: £70,000 - £80,000 Specialist: Lionel Abbott Telephone No: 07831 574381 Lot 682 2012 Posche 997 Turbo S Gen II The facelifted version of Porsche’s 997 Turbo was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show. It was fitted with a completely new 3.8-litre engine generating a maximum power output of 530bhp, thanks to revised Borg-Warner variable turbine geometry (VTG) turbochargers, whilst the optional 7-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox replaced the Tiptronic. With PDK and the optional Sport-Chrono package, which includes the availability of electronically controlled launch control and an over-boost function for temporarily increasing the turbo-pressure, Porsche claimed the 911 Turbo would accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds on its way to a staggering 194mph. Porsche has traditionally raised the appeal of the 911 Turbo during the latter part of its lifecycle with a heavily-optioned S’model, and the 997 Turbo is no exception. The twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre engine of the regular Turbo model was subtly tweaked to boost performance and received a nominal 1.0 bar of boost (against 0.8 bar on the standard version) along with lightly modified turbocharger vanes and a carbon fibre air manifold endowing the S with 530bhp and a continuous (not over-boosted) 516lb/ft of torque. That’s 30bhp and 37lb/ft more than the standard Gen II Turbo, resulting in a class-leading (at the time) 0-62mph in 3.1 seconds, although the top speed remained unchanged. Finished in Carrara (Marble) White with contrasting black leather and the Sport Chrono Package, this Turbo S will ultimately be seen as an engineering masterpiece. It represented the ultimate in performance with sledgehammer acceleration and an engaging drive. If you had to reverse-engineer back to a driving experience second to none, you would stop in 2010 with the Turbo S. Matched to that, add superb reliability and drivability and you have probably the most involving Porsche to date. Supplied new by the Porsche Centre Edinburgh, it comes complete with its dealer book pack, a complete service record and both keys. It was last serviced in September 2022 by Porsche Centre London and has covered only 200 miles since then, with a total mileage of only of 34,198. If you had to reverse-engineer back to a driving experience second to none, you would stop in 2010 with the 997 Turbo S. More Details Lot 682 Bid On Lot 682
