2008 Porsche 911 Turbo (997.1) 6-Speed Cabriolet: 1 of the approximate 848 997.1 Turbo Cabriolets to have landed in North America with the 2008 model year designation featuring a manual transmission and in its configuration of cabriolet, manual, model year and market region, it's 1 of an estimated 3 to have been specified in Slate Grey Metallic with a cabin completed in Black/Terracotta Leather.
The 997.1 Turbo's Significance: It's the last 911 Turbo (and Turbo convertible) to house the iconic 911 GT1-derived Mezger twin-turbocharged engine in conjunction with a manual transmission. The 997.2 Turbos feature an all-new engine, while the 991 and now 992 turbos are only seen in PDK. Though the latter cars are more dynamic, powerful, and are even more technological wonders than the 997.1 Turbo, the Turbos preceding the 997.1 Turbo are larger in size, don't feature the sought-after favorable sizing and mechanicalness as offered by the 997.1 generation Turbo. The 997.1 turbo is very much a new-age Porsche 959 with heightened usability for everyday use and is that car that will not be replicated again.
