The 997 is the most commercially successful 911 of all time, having sold 100,000 units between its introduction in 2005 and July 2007. While the exterior styling is slightly changed compared to the 996, it is again more evolution rather than revolution; typical of Porsche and the Carrera. The rear bodywork is a total of 88 mm (3.5 in) wider than its predecessor. However, the most notable aesthetic difference between the 997 and the 996 is the return to circular headlights like those of pre-996 Carreras, with separate indicator units. The interior has been almost entirely re-invented and all the controls are new; however, it is more reminiscent of classic 911 interiors than of the outgoing 996. The body in general remains low profile with a drag coefficient of .30 for the Carrera S.
For the first time, development of the cabriolet version of the 997 led the design and engineering effort at Porsche with the coupe following. Porsche applied the logic that if you started with the more difficult cabriolet challenges (for chassis stiffness) the coupe version would simply be that much more rigid. Despite additional weight, the cabriolet versions attain nearly the same astonishing performance figures as their coupe counterparts. Even the rear tail comes up slightly higher on the cabriolets to compensate for differences in drag. The Carrera 4S is capable of accelerating to 60mph in 4.7 seconds and is capable of a top speed of 185 mph.
This striking extremely low mileage C4S cabriolet has covered merely 4,000 miles since its October 2007 delivery. The car has had just two owners and has always been maintained to the highest standard with a full Porsche Main Dealer service history; as such the car's condition is superb in every respect. This manual example is presented in an extremely desirable specification of Basalt Metallic Black with Black hood and Black leather optional heated sports seats, and Sports Chrono Plus package, other optional extras include 19" Sport Design Wheels, Parking Sensors, Sports Exhaust system, the upgraded Navigation module with CD auto-changer, telephone and Bose surround sound stereo and three spoke multi-function steering wheel. This superb low mileage and high specification 997 is available immediately at DK's Chorleywood showrooms.
