The Color: GT Silver, a $3,140 option and high luster color that initially appeared on the Carrera GT as its launch color, is one of the most notable and desired silvers offered by Porsche. The way that this shade of silver emphasizes its wearer's design language is immensely captivating and this 997.2 Turbo Cabriolet is no exception. Only 89 out of the 1,488 N.A-Market 997.2 Turbos (2010 to 2013) were finished in this sensual shade of silver. Out of those 89, only 15 were manual cabriolets with only 2 out of the 15 having left the factory specified in GT Silver over Black Full leather with the optioned Spyder RS wheels; to further highlight this 997.2 Turbo 6-speed Cab's rarity and exclusivity, out of the mentioned 2, it's the only NA-designated example to have its wheels painted in its exterior color of silver!
The 997.2 Turbo's Notoriety: Its the last of the manual-operated 911 Turbo. For the NA-designated 997.2 Turbo series (2010 to 2013), only 1,000 left Stuttgart with a PDK gearbox while the remaining 488 were optioned with a traditional manual transmission. The 991 Turbo's transmission offering was only limited to PDK and the upcoming 992 Turbo will 99.9% follow this formula as well. Not only are its successors lacking a manual transmission, but the 991s and 992 911s lack the preferable sizing that this example offers as it's really the last of the svelte-shaped and "right-sized" Turbos that are inline to the original 911 Turbo's (930) design philosophy.
