What's people's thoughts on this? Presuming it came in a little cheaper, isn't a wrap, and had the hideous lobster claws replaced with something more appropriate? I think I'm in love...

2009 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

I like it. Has a great spec too. Look to be priced correctly but if you could get it under 30k would be a bargain...

It probably hasn't been driven too quickly too often because in that hue, the rozzers are pretty likely to have spotted the keen driver.

As such, it seems like a great car in a great spec, and a good candidate for a less obvious wrap!

Obviously it would be great if you could get some £££s off but even if you can't a low mileage Hartech engined 'S' at that money would be a great car.

I'm no fan of standard lobster claws but in two-tone they look good and in that colour look great on that car.

There's nothing in the ad' to suggest that it's a wrap so if you want an orange car this one looks pretty decent to me. You'd certainly need to wait a while to find another one. Smile

IF it is a wrap I'd inspect the quality of the wrap carefully and ideally would like to see pics of what the car was like immediately before it was applied.

Strong money for a 2007 s with 5 owners?

Below average miles , reasonable spec, and the dealer warranty reads well.
When it says "new" Hartech engine, he surely means a rebuild of the original
Dont know was that minimal fix, or the full future proof ? Big difference.

I like the colour.. the tango gearbox tunnel is cool ... should have done the seat back as well Mr. Green

I'd say strong money too but I'm probably a little out of touch, I wouldn't pay asking as it's too close to gen 2 345 money. Think I'll get in touch and see re the colour, has to be wrapped seems too rare to be true?

It's orange the holy grail lol, bet in the flesh the colour is amazing. But would never buy a wrapped car, bit like using a condom really just not the same..

Would always suspect minimal Hartech fix too, heres a question Hartech engine, how would this affect an OPC warranty, now these cars fall into OPC warranty bracket?

2009 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Tue Feb 14, 2017 1:04 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

It says is a Porsche special order colour so I dont think its a wrap, personally I love it and always like the different colours from the safe black, silver, grey. I agree the lobster claws are not right for a loud colour car needs something equally loud . like the centre console agree with askgeez should get the seat backs done to match. check its a full hartech rebuild call Baz he will be able to tell you what was done to it. early 30k is the right sort of money for a 997.1S 06/07 that's unusually either colour or X51 etc. The special order colours always command a few K premium. Riviera,mexico etc etc. And its well speced will ave miles. I think its a good buy but do you PPI due diligence to be sure of no big bills early on as at 32k you would expect it to be fully sorted.

The orange looks great, I like the wheels but other choices might be better, the Hartech rebuilt engine is a big plus

Confirmed with PCT. It's actually colour to sample, code 9X7 so even rarer. I love it, Plus it's had full Hartech rebuild to include all pistons and liners. Just the price..... the tango centre console is also factory order. I'm tempted.

Plus there are the right alloys for it in pic below.

My car is colour to sample as well but that just means it's a special order colour rather then one of the standard colours.
