The 997 is seen by many Porsche enthusiasts as the 911 that reintroduced the beloved 911 look, by today's standards. A nice and wide behind with upfront the renowned round headlights. Combined with a modern water-cooled six-cylinder boxer engine. In the S specification this 3.8ltr. engine produces 355 bhp. With the hood down that almost feels like driving a motorcycle without a helmet... in 5,2 seconds you reach a 100km/h to finally top out at 293km/h. Popping by the local Albert Heijn to do your shopping is also possible by the way. The 997 is famed for its all-round usability. This Carrera S Convertible is a stylish occurrence in black and equipped with desirable options. Fitted with the comfortable Tiptronic-S transmission which is comfortabe to drive in automatic mode, and sporty when desired, with the use of the steering wheel controls; makes it easy to 'instantly' overtake another car or downshift for a nice upcoming corner. The S version could be distinguished by red brake calipers, double exhausts and 19-inch Carrera wheels. With the roof down, the car offers the most fun, however, with the roof up she is also a sight to behold. The charming black cloth convertible hood makes the lighter coloured wide body of the car appear extra impressive. A prettier convertible is hard to find, one that offers more fun doesn't exist.
