2010 Porsche 911 Carrera 4

Last week I took a look at a very interesting 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo that garnered some discussion and even some people saying they really like it. Outside of the optional and very expensive carbon ceramic brakes, it looked like a pretty standard 997 Turbo. Then you peeked inside the windows and knew this wasn’t your typical example that dentist in the nice part of town leases every three years. No standard black leather here, this was Palm Green. Granted, a very subdued green, but still not something you’ll see everyday nor, for that matter, almost ever. Personally, I loved it. Give me the slightly-wild color combos everyday.

Wouldn’t you know, our friend at Switch Cars just happened to have another 997 in a seemingly restrained exterior color but a wild interior. Brace yourself, this one is a little bit more loud than Palm Green.

Check out the incredible specs on this 911. We purchased this car directly from the original owner, and it blew our minds. This is, without a doubt, one of the cleanest, most well maintained cars we’ve ever seen. The mileage is just a number on the odometer, but this car looks like a pampered 25k mile car. The interior is essentially flawless, and the exterior is all original paint and shows just some minor stone chips on the front end. The owner serviced it fanatically and a summary of services is below. The options list is equally as impressive, and in Cream White over Carrera Red it is incredibly unique and a very rare combo. If you’re looking for a car that’s exceptional both in condition and specifications, this is it. The car comes with two keys, books, original window sticker, complete service records, Weathertech rubber mats and the original carpet floor mats.Service Summary: 2011 – Oil/Filter change x2 2012 – Oil/Filter change x2 and Brake flush 2013 – Oil/Filter change x2, Brake flush, spark plugs 2014 – New battery, Oil/filter change, brake flush, differential and PDK service (60k miles) 2015 – New rotors and pads 2016 – Oil/Filter change x2, drive belt replaced, Brake flush, coolant flush, new tires and 4-wheel alignment 2017 – Oil/filter change 2018 – Oil/filter change 2020 – Oil/filter change, Brake flush, inspectionFactory Options: Cream White Carrera Red Natural Leather Porsche PDK Self Dimming Mirrors Heated Front Seats Heated Steering Wheel Bluetooth Sport Chrono Package Plus Navigation Module for PCM Bose High End Sound Package Floor Mats in Interior Color Leather Multifunction Steering Wheel Universal Audio Interface LED Door Pocket Lighting Defroster Air Vents Leather Fuse Box Cover in Leather Rear Center Console in Leather 19-inch Carrera Sport Wheel

Yeah, this one is a little more in your face. Cream White over Carrera Red is just not very subdued at all.. Cream White is very much a creamy looking color and not very common at all, then combine it with the Carrera Red, and you have yourself a unique one. It is interesting to note that this is a 997.2 C4 with the PDK gearbox, so there was some restraint if this was a custom order. It even looks like this might have been a daily driver judging by the nearly 82,000 miles – which honestly is great to see. I think the 997.2 with the PDK is about as sublime as you can get for the money in terms of a daily driver. Even better, there’s a pile of service records and no real issues to speak of.

The price on this one is a reasonable $43,000. No price adjustment either way for the color combo, just an example price on condition and mileage. If you are really into these colors, go for it. Not my first choice, but I wouldn’t fault anyone for owning this one. Curious to see if this is as tolerated as much as the Turbo last week. My guess is that it isn’t.

  1. Love it! It’s only subtle on the outside. Inside is pure bling, but I’m a sucker for a red interior. Think 2002 Audi TT ALMS.

  2. This dealer has a good reputation and his prices are typically reasonable compared to other Porsche specialty dealers. Having said that a White over red 3.6 L 997.2 with 82k miles and PDK is $40k tops in this market. Obviously if it had lower miles or a manual or the 3.8 engine it would be worth.

  3. Too bad Porsche had to use those screwy buttons on the steering wheel for the PDK. That is a killer for me. I had a 997 Turbo rental with those for a couple days when new and I couldn’t stand them.

    typical drag on the PDK and small complaints etc. but what a beauty… 4s are the cream of the crop and the PDK is an advantage in real world driving… add massive HP with a paddle shifter conversion and viola’… this car is clean enough and has receipts forever so the cost is right in the pocket…
    milage is a good indication of reliability in this case… buy it and fly it daily…

  5. @Ricky – the steering wheel in this example is one of 3 steering wheel types available on the 997 and 991.1 cars, two of which use the screwy shift buttons. The one you want is called the Sport Design wheel. It has proper paddles – I had it in my 991S and loved it. You can easily buy one and switch it out on the car of your choice.

    As far as this example goes, I agree with Greg – 40K tops given the mileage and the small motor. Switch Cars does tend to have good stuff for a reasonable price. Negotiate 3K off this example and drive it till the wheels fall off.

  6. Interesting configuration for sure ! But I always wonder about the person who would order this new – the difference between in price between the 3.6 and 3.8 motor is around $10K

    If price were a concern and I were spec’ing a new car out, I would rather skip some options and get the larger motor ! Not that 3.6 is not powerful but it would bug the hell out of me knowing that I could have had the 3.8 !!

    Regardless, very nice car 🙂

  7. is it white or ” palm green” ? i dont understand, that and im color blind
