In 2008 the facelifted version of the successful Porsche 997 appeared on the scene. Optically not much changed, the most noticeable difference were the new led lights, front and rear. More spectacular news was that Porsche, for the first time, would apply the automatic gearbox with twin clutch to a serial produced 911. In theory, the 997 is equipped with two joined installed semi-automatic gearboxes that also happen to have separate clutches that can be operated with buttons on the steering wheel. This is where the name PDK comes from, it stands for Porsche Doppel Kupplung. The second gearbox readily selects the next gear in which the first gearbox is situated through the double clutch, whilst one clutch disengages the other clutch engages. This means changing gear automatically is for the first time faster than changing gear manually. The Tiptronic gearbox used before was a conventional automatic gearbox with a torque convertor that used quite a bit of energy which noticeably cut down on speed. With the PDK technique that aspect of driving automatic stays in the past. Also the engine received some modifications, the cubic capacity increased, so did the power, 385bhp in the S version, and the chassis was improved as well. That meant the PDK car received the adjustable sport chassis with Active Suspension Management, which could also be found on the GT3 at the time. Also the exhaust system was revised for a sportier sound. All in all it pays off to invest in a Mk2 997 with PDK. Economically it would be wise to pick an early example PDK. When it also happens to be the strong Carrera 4S version with the wide Turbo body the enthusiast has his racing gloves handy. Add the extensive option list and the beautiful colouration, perhaps the 911 of your dreams.

The interior of this Carrera 4S is truly flawless and appears not to have been used frequently. Study the photos to see how tight the leather on the seats remains, as if they were barely sat in. Nice supple leather. Also on the dashboard and door cards this 997 is upholstered with double stitched leather. On the floor nice original Porsche mats. All switchgear and gauges are nice and clean and work accordingly. Also the in leather upholstered steering wheel is nicely smooth and undamaged. This car has never been smoked in. As a whole this interior presents itself as 'new condition'.
