Supercar Fest Sale Of Iconic And Classic Cars Saturday 28th May 2022 98 Registration: TBA Chassis No.: WPOZZZ99Z8S786554 Estimate: £50,000 - £60,000 Lot 463 2007 Porsche 911 (997) Turbo Convertible Although the 911 (997) Carrera models appeared in 2004, it wasn’t until 2006 that the Turbo version was finally launched. First shown at that year’s Geneva Show, it was initially offered as a Coupé (and later as a convertible) with an impressive specification. The Mezger 3.6-litre engine was continued, now producing 480 bhp at 6,000 rpm and featuring VarioCam Plus and a pair of clever Borg-Warner variable geometry turbochargers, a totally new technology for Porsche. With a manual gearbox, the 997 Turbo requires just 3.9 seconds to reach 62 mph and will go on to 193 mph. Power is transmitted to all four wheels with Porsche Traction Management (PTM) which utilises an electronically controlled, multi-plate clutch. This intelligent technology provides variable drive to each axle. The front/rear split is continuously adjusted based on current road conditions and driver inputs. Although biased towards the rear, the front receives more power whenever the situation requires. The car presented here is a UK-supplied, C-16, right-hand drive, 2007 Porsche 911 (997.1) Turbo Convertible which, importantly, means it utilises the well-proven and legendary Mezger race-derived engine, which has a bulletproof reputation. It was supplied in black with a black leather interior and was ordered with Tiptronic transmission. It joined our vendor’s Collection in May of 2013 having been enjoyed by one previous owner and the mileage when it was photographed was 33,482. Used occasionally in London, there are inevitably a few small marks, but overall the car presents really well with an excellent interior, tidy engine bay and smart alloys. This is a good-looking, well maintained, low mileage example of a very quick 911 and a worthy candidate for the serious Porsche enthusiast. NB: The Cherished Registration illustrated, GEN 35, does not form part of the sale. More Details Lot 463 Bid On Lot 463
