2005 Porsche 997 Carrera Cabriolet


This 2005 Porsche 997 Carrera Cabriolet Tiptronic is a car that we have sold before and we are delighted to have it back in stock. It’s a very affordable entry-level 997 that combines sportiness and practicality. It really is a lot of fun to drive. It looks great finished in Basalt Black Metallic with a matching full black leather interior.

The Porsche has a good specification, including rear Park Assist, Cruise control (rare on 997s), Bose sound pack, PCM satnav, heated seats and a multifunction steering wheel. It has been regularly serviced, in line with Porsche’s schedule, and has recently had a service and belt change, so it won’t require another service for almost two years.

If you are unable to get to us, please get in touch as we offer a remote buying service. We can first make a personalised video or organise a conference call to show you around the car, covering all aspects you want to see. If you like the car, you pay for it and we shall deliver it to you free of charge (within 100 miles of our Chichester base, further distances charged at cost). We are based on the south coast of England, nestled between the South Downs and Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s a lovely area to visit and you are still very welcome to come and view our stock or just have a chat about cars!

Philip Raby Specialist Cars is refreshingly different. We like to build a friendly relationship with customers; before, during and after you buy from us. You won’t get a hard sell but you will get friendly and professional advice to ensure that we find exactly the right car for you. We have sold hundreds of Porsches and other specialist cars and have a vast experience to share with you.

Each car we sell goes through a thorough mechanical inspection and any faults found put right before sale. This ensures that your new car is ready for you to enjoy from day one, without you having to worry about a thing. In the unlikely event you have a problem, we include a six-month warranty underwritten by us. We stand by this warranty so, if you have any issue with your Porsche, wherever you are in the UK, we will work with you to put things right, without any quibble or fuss. So do please get in touch for a chat and to arrange a visit or a live video. Part exchange and finance available – please click the Finance button below for details.

Philip Raby says: “This is a well sorted Porsche 997 and a lot of fun to drive. 997s drive as true 911s should, and this is no exception, while the Tiptronic transmission, with its choice of fully automatic or manual changes, makes a of sense. It’s a lot of car for the money!”
