Make an offer
The Porsche 911 has a special place in the world of sports cars. It is no longer perceived as just a vehicle since it transcends the limits of the car industry and has become a cultural symbol and globally recognized shape. Through its generations, the 911 has evolved from a small sports coupe to today’s luxurious GT car. However, suppose you lust for that essential 911 feel, a naturally aspirated boxer engine growl, and pure driving sensation. In that case, the 997 generation is the last to offer all those desirable classic virtues in modern packaging. It is perfection on four wheels in convertible form and with manual transmission.

This “Guards Red” Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabrio was produced in December of 2006 and sold new in Spain, where it spent all of its life. The current owner acquired it in 2021. This convertible is a prime example of the Carrera 2 model from the 997 generation, which is known for its lightweight construction, high-revving engines, and uncompromised driving feel. Porsche purists often criticized subsequent 911 models for being too big and heavy, but all agreed that the 997 was the last of the classic line of cars. It offers a nimble chassis, naturally-aspirated engines, characteristic sound, and unique handling, especially in RWD form, like this one. This example is powered by a 3.6-liter, flat-six engine delivering a healthy 325 hp and more than respectable performance. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is possible in just 4.8 seconds with a top speed of over 280 km/h (177 mph). However, the essential thing is the 6-speed manual, which immediately transforms this red cabriolet from just another 911 to a rare collector’s item. The manual is a very desirable option that not only helps the car achieve its full performance potential but makes every drive an unforgettable experience.
The “Natural Brown” interior is strikingly combined with the red exterior and even further establishes this example from the rest of the 911 models. The interior is in immaculate condition, with no scratches on the leather seats. It is also well-appointed with optional sports seats, a Bose audio system, and a matching steering wheel. The only non-original item is the Kenwood head unit with touchscreen, but the tasteful upgrade fits the dashboard’s design perfectly. Even though this convertible was driven as a weekend cruiser in sunny Spain, there are no signs of sun damage on the gorgeous tan hide interior.
With just 43,000 kilometers from the new, the car’s overall condition is immaculate, with no accidents or damages to the vehicle. The last engine service was performed in 2022, while the brakes were overhauled in October 2023. The car was thoroughly cleaned, and an oil analysis was conducted, showing that the engine and the drive train were in ideal condition. The 911s have always had a reputation for quality, and when properly maintained and carefully kept, like this one is, they can last a lifetime.
