2010 Porsche 911 (997.2) Carrera 4S Cabriolet
This 2010 Porsche 911 (997.2) Carrera 4S Cabriolet is an unmodified and fastidiously maintained car benefitting from a tidy specification. It is powered by a naturally-aspirated 3.8-litre flat-six-cylinder engine outputting 283kW/420Nm through all four wheels. This car is fitted with a seven-speed PDK automatic gearbox and can run from zero to 100km/h in 4.7 seconds. The odometer currently shows 80,568km.
First unveiled in 2004, the 997-generation Porsche 911 was a large-scale revision of the previous 996 iteration. The most significant changes came with exterior styling tweaks, interior presentation, and subtle power enhancement. The facelifted 997.2 generation arrived in 2009 sporting even subtler changes, though ultimately making the 911 a more well-rounded car with a new dual-clutch gearbox, redesigned infotainment, and new lights. Notably for this car, for the first time, development of the cabriolet version of the 997 led the design and engineering effort at Porsche with the coupe following. This was to ensure that the cabriolet performs almost identically to its hard-top counterpart. The 997 is held as the first water-cooled 911 that lives up to its promise and is equally happy being driven daily or at a track day.
This specification blends black exterior paint with a black leather interior for a smart-looking colour combination. It features a black fabric soft-top roof. A number of option boxes were ticked from new including Sport Chrono, embossed head rests, and Bose sound system. It rides on a set of 19-inch Porsche alloy wheels in silver and stocks a set of red brake calipers. Pirelli P Zero tyres are fitted currently.
This car was acquired by its second and current owner in October 2016 through Porsche Centre Melbourne. It had 63,850km on the odometer at that time and has been used sparingly since, hence the low miles. The car is known to Porsche Centre Melbourne, having always been serviced at that dealership. The last service was a major 80,000km one which was completed at Porsche Centre Melbourne in April 2020. It has not suffered from an accident in its life.
Exterior condition of this 911 looks to be in fine order. The black paintwork presents well for a darker shade, and no signs of scratching or dents are seen on the exterior panels. Some small scuffing is observed on the underside of the front and rear bar, along with some very minor stone chips on the front bar, but otherwise this car shows very well. Minor curb rash damage is also observed on some of the alloy wheels, though the Pirelli P Zero tyres show a good level of tread depth remaining.
Inside the cabin this 911 shows in similar condition to the exterior. Minor marks of wear and tear are seen on the black leather upholstery, but the original seats hold their shape well and no tearing is evident. More obvious damage is the leather seat bolsters of the driver’s seat which is beginning to crack from repeated wear. Minimal scuffing is observed on some trim plastics, but otherwise the interior of this cabriolet shows in good order and functions as intended.
Accompanying documentation and service booklets will be supplied with this car.
