Honed on the racetrack, but practical and reliable enough to use every day, the 911 legend lives on with the introduction of the 997 series. At launch in late 2004, there were just two 997 models available – the Carrera and the Carrera S. Nevertheless, in typically Porsche style the range soon expanded to include cabriolets, wide-body four-wheel drive models, awesome turbocharged grand tourers and race-bred GT3s! This all-new Ultimate Buyers Guide introduces all the production 997 types, describing the technical specifications, identification data, performance, colors and options. Using color photography of the cars and many actual problem areas, we discuss what to look for when choosing and buying a used example.
