2008 Porsche 911 Carrera

As much as I am a sucker for paint-to-sample Porsches, I’m also just as big a sucker for good deals. Combine the two, and well, I’m very close to clicking the always tempting “Buy it Now” button. Today’s car almost has me there.

This is a 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera in paint-to-sample Zanzibar Red with black sport seats and my favorite “lobster fork” wheels. It also brings bi-xenon headlights, a sunroof, and climate control buttons that aren’t worn down to the bare plastic. I need more space.

I saw this one pop up a few days ago and can’t believe no one snatched it up yet. The seller says it has a fair amount of recent maintenance to make it sound like they knew what they were doing with this car, IMS be damned. It does have a fair amount of miles with 100,000, but you aren’t buying a base 997 not to drive it. At just $38,000, this one seems like a really good deal, especially if you are into the special color game. Get them while you can, because they aren’t getting any cheaper.

  1. On a car with this many miles, IMS replacement would be a waste of time. IMS failure mostly occurs with low mileage cars that are not driven enough. Zanzibar red is a great color. And the stick shift is a nice surprise.

    I agree… even with 100K miles and non-s. Nice condition, a 6 spd and PTS…it is a very good deal.

  3. Flood damage maybe? I get more and more suspicious of a good deal on ANY car these days…

  4. Nice looking 997. PTS is cool but the color is so close to Guards Red why bother? Sport seats are a nice option although I do prefer the regular comfort seats. Based on the Auto Check (not nearly as good as CarFax) it is appears to be a well looked after car. Practically speaking you wouldn’t change the IMSB on a 2005.5-2008 997 as it requires complete engine disassembly. The 911s that you can easily replace the IMSB on are the 996s and some early 2005 997 cars. If a full PPI checks out (bore scope, overrev report, no major body work, clutch life, etc.) this would be a fair deal for a high mile base 997.1.
