Type 997

2005 Porsche Carrera S

6 Speed Manual Gearbox


A friend sent me these pictures of a 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S Type 997 that is owned by his former boss who operates a parts warehouse for classic muscle cars.

The "Type 997" is a version of the long running Porsche 911 which was introduced in 1964 and has since undergone many evolutionary changes in performance more so than body styling.

Some of the past versions of this legendary street legal race car include the Carrera RS ('73-'74), 911 Turbo ('74-'89), 964 Turbo ('90-93), 996 GT3 ('99-'04), and the current 997 (in GT2, GT3 and Turbo models).

Since the release of the 997 in 2004, it has become the most successful model with sales of over 100 thousand vehicles. It has a MSRP price tag of about $84,000 to $90,000 depending on options.

This Porsche 911 Carrera S Type 997 features a 3.8 Liter boxer flat 6 cylinder aluminum and iron all alloy engine that puts out 355 SAE HP (horsepower).

Using the standard six speed manual transmission the 997 can blast through 0-60mph in under 4 seconds and reach a top speed of about 186 miles per hour.

The optional Tiptronic S automatic tranny is said to be just a hair slower when compared to the manual gearbox with a professional driver at the wheel.

The 997 also comes equipped with a BOSE Sound System, the VarioCam Plus system, Porsche Stability Management (PSM), Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), 19" alloy wheels, McPherson Struts, L.S.A. Suspension (Lightweight, Stable, Agile), ceramic composite brakes, four piston fixed monobloc calipers, four channel anti-lock braking (ABS) system, and cross drilled ventilated brake rotors.
