2008 Porsche 911 Turbo (997.1) 6-Speed Coupe: 1 of the approximate 685 997.1 Turbo Coupes to have landed in North America with the 2008 model year designation featuring a manual transmission and in its configuration of coupe, manual, model year and market region, it's 1 of an estimated 15 to have been specified in GT Silver with a cabin completed in Cocoa Natural 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.
This absolutely beautiful Turbo displays an odometer reading of a low 33,XXX miles, shows a Clean CARFAX Report, and featured an original MSRP of $134,390 with a build sheet listing the following equipment: Heated Front Seats; Sport Chrono Package Turbo; Remote CD Changer (6 Disc); Floor Mats in Interior Color; Gear Lever Trim Exterior Color; Door Opener Painted Ext. Clr.; Special Leather Cocoa; GT Silver Metallic; Thicker Steering Wheel-Leather.
Upon viewing the Turbo's aerodynamically optimized body, your presence is welcomed by its spectacular Carrera GT inaugurating GT Silver Metallic finish which is a line highlighting hue that can appear to take on various shades underneath varying lighting conditions and always looks absolutely grand; front bumper boasting integrated and aesthetically unobstructive headlight washers, intake duct incorporated LED turn signals and compact fog lights that are aptly stationed on the bumper's outermost region; Bi-Xenon headlights; a sleek gas lid that's understatedly incorporated into the right fender; 19-inch forged alloy Turbo wheels completed in a two-tone finish (showcased in front of red brake calipers with white 'Porsche' script); the rear's pronounced, muscular fenders that are accentuated by the model's signature air intakes; a bi-plane rear spoiler featuring an automatically deploying top wing that raises at around 77 MPH and lowers at roughly 37 MPH; twin exhaust outlets that subtly protrudes from the distinctive, twin-vented, rear bumper.
Just before slipping inside of its inviting Cocoa Natural Leather cabin, you're first met by black door sills with 'turbo' insignia plated in brushed-look aluminum, and when inside you can expect to find light-colored twin-stitching and aluminum/brushed aluminum/metallic-coated surfacing on select areas with carpeting completed in Cocoa and supple leather that extends onto the upper dashboard and door areas. The driver is faced with a leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel; titanium-colored instrumentation dials; a centrally located dash-mounted SportChrono dial also with a titanium-colored finish; 5.8-inch PCM display; the dazzling, 6-speed shifter offering clear-cut throws and possessing a gear lever design that's native the Turbo model. Front occupants are embraced by perforated Comfort seats featuring memory settings for the driver, and heating functionality for both occupants and can expect in-cabin audio playback via the optioned BOSE Surround Sound System, featuring 13-speakers.
