Porsche 997 Turbo


Finished in Basalt Black Metallic with 19-inch Turbo wheels, this 2008 Porsche 997 Turbo looks amazing. It also benefits from some subtle tuning modifications to make it even faster and better sounding than ever.

The interior is full black leather with an updated Sony CarPlay/DAB head unit, Bose, climate control, sunroof, Alcantara steering wheel and headlining, alloy gear knob, white dials. Other options include Litronic headlamps, rear Park Assist, PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management( and PSM (Porsche Stability Management).

This very much a driver-focused 997 Turbo. It has the wonderful six-speed manual gearbox and the all-important Sport Chrono Package. This gives a lap timer atop the dash and, more importantly, a Sport button. When pressed, this sharpens the throttle response and backs off the PSM to give an even more thrilling ride.

Furthermore the engine has been tweaked by well-known Porsche specialist Ray West of West Tuning. A remap and Mahle intercooler takes the wheel horsepower from 471bhp to 523bhp. It’s a worthwhile and noticeable difference!  The Porsche has a well-documented service history, with the last service by West Tuning in May 2023 at 59,140 miles, so it won’t need another service until May 2025. The diamond-cut alloy wheels have recently been refurbished and are shod with Bridgestone Potenza tyres. The car come complete with the cherished registration ‘Y7 TBO’.

Note that this Porsche is Cat N after receiving rear-end damage. It has since been properly repaired. Because of this, we have priced the car very attractively, making it a great opportunity to get into Porsche 997 Turbo ownership for a great price.

Philip Raby says: “I love the 997 Turbo, especially the Mezger engined ones. It offers supercar performance in a remarkably useable package. This example ticks all the boxes with Sport Chrono and manual transmission, and is great value for money, too.”
