2008 Porsche Carrera S PDK


This beautiful 2008 Porsche Carrera S is finished in Basalt Black Metallic with a complementing black leather interior. Being a Gen2 997, it benefits from the all-new DFI (direct fuel injection) engine which, combined with the seven-speed PDK gearbox, offers a blend of astonishing performance with impressive fuel economy.

The Porsche has the desirable option of Sport Chrono Pack Plus which works particularly well with the PDK transmission. That’s because the Pack includes two buttons on the centre console – Sport and Sport Plus. Select Sport and the transmission holds lower gears for longer for more spritely performance. Sport Plus, as the name suggests, does the same but even more so. These buttons also firm up the suspension to give firmer handling, although this can also be set independently.

Other notable options on this 911 include Litronic headlamps, heated seats, cruise control, Bluetooth phone connectivity, Bose Sound Pack, PCM sat-nav, rear Park Assist, climate control and PSM (Porsche Stability Control).

The car has been correctly serviced in accordance with Porsche’s schedule, with the last service in November 2018 at 49,922 miles, so it won’t need another service until 2020. It has near-new Michelin Pilot Sport tyres and has had three owners.

Philip Raby says: “I’m a big fan of the Porsche 997 and this Gen2 example is a joy to drive. The PDK transmission is remarkably good at being in just the right gear at the right time, especially when you employ Sport or Sport Plus mode.”
