Launched in 2004, the sixth generation of the Porsche 911 takes the name 997. Produced from 2004 to 2012, the 997 returns to the round headlamps, and marks the reappearance of a more powerful S range. The two engine variants were unveiled at the same time, with the appearance of an unprecedented 3.8-liter Flat 6, combined with a stiffer, more efficient chassis than its predecessors. A problem with the IMS bearing appeared on the first models, but was corrected a little over a year after its release, and this model benefits from this.
This Porsche 997 Carrera S was launched on August 3, 2005 in France. It is sold new by the Centre Porsche Levallois. A total of 6 owners will keep this model, exclusively in France. In 2009, this Porsche is acquired by its second owner in the south-east, and remains in the region with its third and fourth owners. It was then imported to Seine Maritime from 2018 to 2021, and has been purchased by its current owner since 2022. It is serviced by Porsche Centers in Paris 16, Antibes, Rouen and Levallois. This example is configured in a midnight blue exterior color combined with gray rims and yellow brake calipers. Overall condition is excellent. The bodywork is flawless, and the paintwork is bright and deep. The wheels are in perfect condition, and there are no aesthetic costs to be anticipated. Inside, all components are in excellent condition. The black leather seats, three-spoke steering wheel, door interiors and dashboard are in good condition. The on-board instrumentation and multimedia systems function normally.
Mechanically, this Porsche 997 Carrera S is powered by a 3.8-liter Flat 6 engine developing 355 hp. It's mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The overall performance of the mechanical components is beyond reproach. The engine starts easily, and there are no suspicious noises on the road. Maintenance is carried out in Porsche Centers and by Porsche specialists. The original stamped logbook and invoices for work carried out since 2009 are available. The last service was carried out in October 2023. Consumables are in good condition.

The Porsche 997 Carrera S was first introduced in 2004. This generation, designated under the internal code "997", marked a stylistic return to more traditional 911 elements, after the radical changes made by the previous 996.
On the technical front, the 997 Carrera S was launched with a 3.8-liter flat-six engine, an extension of the 3.6-liter engine found in the standard 997 Carrera. This engine developed 355 hp (261 kW) at 6,600 rpm, with maximum torque of 400 Nm at 4,600 rpm. With this engine, the Carrera S could reach a top speed of 293 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in around 4.8 seconds.
A six-speed manual transmission was fitted as standard. A five-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission was also available as an option. In 2009, with the restyled model (often referred to as the 997.2), the 997 Carrera S received Porsche's new seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission, offering faster gear changes and greater fuel efficiency. Aesthetically, the 997 marked a return to rounded oval headlamps, reminiscent of those on the 993 and moving away from the teardrop-shaped headlamps of the 996. The Carrera S model was distinguished by specific details such as double exhaust tips and unique rims.
The 997 Carrera S also introduced several technological innovations, including the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity and an iPod audio interface. In terms of safety, it was equipped with front and side airbags, Porsche Stability Management (PSM) technology and, in later models, Porsche Traction Management (PTM). Production of the Porsche 997 Carrera S continued until 2012, when it was succeeded by the 991 generation. The 997 is often considered by enthusiasts and critics alike to be one of the best iterations of the 911, thanks to its balance of modern performance and classic Porsche styling.
