With supercar performance, yet all the practicality and reliability of a daily driver, modern iterations of the Porsche 911 Turbo offer enthusiasts the best of both worlds. For the facelifted 997.2-generation of the 911, if the base Turbo was not enough, the Turbo S took that formula one step further. As standard, these cars were exceptionally well equipped, and all were fitted with Porsche’s PDK transmission, carbon ceramic brakes, and Sport Chrono package. The engine was tuned to provide 523 hp, some 30 more than the standard 911 Turbo. Acceleration from 0-60 mph was quoted at 3.1 seconds and lead to a top speed just shy of 200 mph.

Finished in Black paintwork over a black leather interior and matching black convertible top, this 911 Turbo S cabriolet was exceptionally well optioned by its first and only owner. Notably, it features the 19-inch 911 Turbo II wheels, heated and ventilated Comfort seats with the Porsche crest embossed in the headrests, heated multi-function steering wheel, illuminated door sills, and clear taillights. This example has been well preserved and maintained since new and has been driven no more than 7,400 miles throughout its life.

With less than 2,100 997.2 Turbo S cabriolets built worldwide, these are among the rarest of the regular-production 997-generation. Even eight years after leaving Porsche’s facilities in Stuttgart, these 911s continue to provide incredible performance and can handily keep up with today’s crop of supercars. Finished in a stunning black over black, this low-mileage example surely will not disappoint.
