2007 911 Turbo Coupe 6-speed

Is the market for low-mileage 997 Turbos back?

In February of 2006, Porsche debuted the 997 Turbo with its widebody taken from the AWD models and a much more aggressive stance than the normal 911 models along with air vents on the rear quarter panels to enhance engine cooling. The engine, derived from the 911 GT1, utilized Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) turbos to change their angle with exhaust speed in order to reduce turbo lag at low speeds and ease excessive back pressure at high RPM.

This 2007 911 Turbo Coupe 6-speed is finished in Black over a Black Full Leather interior and features the Sport Chrono Package, PCM Navigation, a sport shifter, driver-seat memory settings, a Bose sound system, illuminated Turbo-branded stainless-steel door sill guards, and shows just 23,000 miles on the odometer.

The Black paint appears to be in good condition from the images provided and comes with paint protection film over the front clip and rear quarter panels of the car. The interior is clean and well with seat bolsters showing normal creasing and black plastic switches, which can show some peeling, looking good as new. Only items missing from the listing are service records (other than those on the CarFax) and paint meter readings, but overall, a very very nice car.

Over the last twelve months the 997 Turbo market has softened a bit going from an average of $105,000 to $100,000, with a lot more cars offered in the first six months than the last. Our Spotlight car sold at a final bid of $108,000, which was higher than average, but it had much lower miles than average. While we’ve seen a few comps in the low $100s, there are more in the $110k+ range. I think paint meter readings and more info on service would have helped this sale a bit. Solid deal for the buyer.


There are many Porsche Centers here in the US, and then there are PORSCHE Centers. Those who have a deep-rooted passion for the history of the marque that shows through everything they do, especially their choice of inventory. And Porsche Salt Lake City is one such PORSCHE Center. Serving the Salt Lake Valley since 1958 as one of the first Porsche dealers in the United States, a quick browse of their inventory lets one know just how dedicated to the brand this group of Porsche enthusiasts is.

Take for example this 1993 964 Carrera RS 3.8. Produced as the base to homologate Porsche’s legendary 3.8 RSR race car, the Carrera RS 3.8 was the ultimate evolution of the standard RS as it shed around 600 lbs of weight while increasing horsepower to 300 for a most visceral driving experience. And with only 55 units produced, you’ll be hard-pressed to find another for sale on the showroom floor of another Porsche Center.
