Since its introduction way back in 1964, the 911 has achieved innumerable successes in just about all car hobby disciplines: racing, rallying, concours, touring, to daily driver and, courtesy of a somewhat useable rear seat, family car. Porsche developed the 911 from the 356, arming it with 6-cylinder power and the firm has continued to develop the car over that 57 years.
The 2008 Porsche Carrera S Cabriolet offered here has been enjoyed by only two previous owners. Originally purchased in Bellevue, Washington, the car was meticulously cared for and enjoyed for a little over 21,000 miles until early 2015, when it changed hands through the Bellevue Porsche dealer to its second owner. The car was fully serviced by the dealer at that time. The second owner, equally as meticulous, enjoyed the car for the next 7 years, wracking up a few miles to its now indicated 50,600. The photography session may well have been the first time the ashtray was opened!
Exquisitely presented, the car is in truly exceptional condition throughout. The exterior GT Silver Metallic paint is immaculate and totally original, apart from the bumper cover from a scuff by another motorist. 19″ Carrera Classic wheels are totally scuff-free and shod with excellent Michelin tires. The Cocoa Natural Leather interior is near-perfect, considering age and mileage. The car features the power seat package, heated front seats, leather sports steering wheel, Bose stereo system, floor mats to match interior color, plus the Porsche windstop, the center console to match the exterior and Porsche crests in the headrests. The car starts easily and runs perfectly. It shifts effortlessly through the 6-speed manual gearbox, with excellent clutch action. Brakes, suspension and all electrical systems work perfectly. The soft top works as it should and the AC blows cold. The sale of the car is accompanied by a full set of books, two keys and a file of service records from the second owner.
