(Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 200 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, and a link to the car's accident-and-damage-free, very-low-mileage Carfax history report, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.)
Car and Driver: “… we'd be hard pressed to argue that this latest 911 isn't just the best water-cooled car ever to wear the Carrera badge, it's a helluva performance machine in its own right. Frankly, it's all the 911 most folks will ever need.” -“Tested: 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera PDK,” July 2016
On power: “These new turbocharged Carreras conceivably could have fallen victim to regulatory realities, trading character for mpg figures. We are both relieved and pleased to inform you that, aside from a couple of peculiarities, this is not the case. Porsche continues to get ever more aggressive with its engine stop/start programming and now actually switches off the engine when the car is still rolling to a stop. Another recent addition is the dual-clutch automatic (PDK) transmission's coasting function, which returns the engine to idle just about any time the driver lifts off the throttle.”
On performance: “According to Porsche, output is up over the previous car by 20 horsepower and 44 lb-ft of torque. What's more relevant is what the Carrera does with that newfound thrust. It's a full second quicker to 60 mph than the last base Carrera we tested. Admittedly, that car was fitted with a manual transmission, while our 2017 model features Porsche's silly-quick seven-speed dual-clutch automatic (which Porsche calls PDK), complete with a launch control function as part of the Sport Chrono option package.”
On the interior: “… the 911's cabin is just as fine a place to spend time as it was previously.”
“If you were shopping for a 911, the Carrera S was the obvious choice.”

Offered here is an extremely low-mileage 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S in classic Agate Grey Metallic (about which the color-authority PCA rennbow.org website declares: “Porsche simply wouldn't be Porsche without a metallic dark gray like this on the palette”) over standard leather upholstery in black. The car is very well-optioned including such desirable additions as the Sport Package (including Sport Exhaust and Rear Axle Steering, and the Sport Chrono Package), Prestige Package, PDK transmission, Lane-Change Assist, Sunroof, Adaptive Sport Seats with Memory Package, Bose® Surround Sound System, Heated Multi-Function GT Sport Steering Wheel, and more. Every standard and optional feature is listed on the original factory window sticker included with the car and viewable in the gallery. The car's odometer shows just 4,636 miles since it was delivered new at Sewickley Porsche in Sewickley, Pennsylvania. Throughout, the condition of every surface on this Porsche 911 Carrera S compares favorably to a brand new car.
The original exterior paint is in outstanding condition, and the body panels are entirely free of damage, dents, scuffs, scratches, or dings. The Porsche factory's paint-application processes, as demonstrated here, are unmatched. (Be sure to view closeup images in the photo gallery to see the condition of the paint surface.) Even mirror caps and lower-body trim are in near-perfect condition. Red-painted Porsche-branded brake calipers, as well as cross-drilled and ventilated brake rotors, show nicely through the open-wheel design. Headlight lenses show no sign of road rash or other damage; tinted cabin glass and all other lighting lenses (including lenses on the LED taillights) are free of flaws. The 20-inch wheels are mounted with Pirelli® Z-rated tires.
The car's paint finish is exceptional across every pane. The condition is virtually “as new.” The Agate Grey Metallic color choice beautifully highlights the flowing design, especially so across the hood, rear fenders, and speed-deployed spoiler.
Inside, the like-new condition continues. Leather seating surfaces and door panels show virtually no wear. Lower-door step-over sills are free of scratches (an indicator of fastidious owner care). Every control surface across the dashboard and console is like-new, and every graphic marking is crisp and unworn. Instrument lenses are clear; lighted instruments, including the digital driver-information system, are fully functional. There are no wear indications on the shifter for the dual-clutch automated PDK transmission (for Porsche Doppel Kupplungsgetreibe.) The 7-speed PDK offers the dual benefits of ease of use in urban driving with performance-shifting faster than is possible with a manual transmission. It is now the preferred transmission for enthusiasts. Black cabin carpeting is protected by Porsche-logo-embroidered carpet mats. The GT Sport steering wheel is free of significant wear and the Porsche crest center emblem shows its original colors and condition. (Please view the close-up photography in the gallery to assess the condition of the Porsche's various interior surfaces.) The car's leather document packet and full complement of original owner literature and the original manufacturer's window sticker are included in the sale.
Under the rear deck, the surfaces on the twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 24-valve, 3-liter, flat-6 engine (capable of delivering 370 horsepower) are perfectly clean, complete, undamaged, and unmodified. The rated top-speed for this engine is 183 mph. Viewed from below, the car's chassis is free of noteworthy damage and complete with all underbody panels properly in place. (To best appraise the condition of the engine and undercarriage surfaces, please review the gallery photos shot from below.)
While the more than 200 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase 2017 911 Carrera S in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
Car and Driver summarized the appeal of this Zuffenhausen-built, classic 911 Carrera S: “Rug-rippingly quick; excellent cabin; that flat-six noise; quicker than the previous GTS.” This example offers the added advantage of making good on the longstanding advice for those in the market: Buy the best-condition one you can find.
Please call if interested or e-mail with specific questions. Thank you for looking.
