Curious how much wider a wide body 997.1S coupe is than a narrow body 997,1S coupe?

Very nice Wide bodies could be a better investment being rarer.

CarSales.com.au specs say the 2007 S is 1808mm wide vs 1852mm for the 4S. The 4S has one inch wider rear rims at 11".

Interesting that the GT3 and GT3RS are both quoted as (narrowbody) 1808mm width, and runnning wider 12" rears on 305's. Nice!

Height wise GT3's sit at 1280mm, both 30mm lower than the std 1310mm. Still above boom height though! 😂

(CarSales makes me sound like an expert! 😜)

So the description stating widebody is incorrect. Unless it's been grafted on!

Sorry for misleading you guys :( wasn't my intention. I was told when I bought it that it was wide body and this car being my first Porsche I didn't pay attention. To me any Porsche looked wide :) 

So I always thought it was wide body.  Now I'm confused. From my pictures it doesn't look like it's wide body, but maybe it's just the angle / distance of the photo as I couldn't get back far enough. And I certainty did not graft anything, but I'm not the first owner. 

I'll remove the "wide body" from description, as I don't think that would be a buying deciding factor.

When we used to park our 996 4s next to our 997 S it was obvious that Porsche went quite a bit wider when moving from 996 to 997 (without putting a measure on it it appeared to me that the 996 4S was pretty close to the 997S).  So plenty of flare - even on the 'narrow' 997 S.

Completely understand. It's a great looking 997 with v. low k's & black on black is always popular.. you should get some post covid interest now that's for sure.

997 2 - Width = 1,808 mm
997 2s - 1,808 mm
997 4 - 1,852 mm
997 4s - 1,852 mm

993 C2 Narrowbody
993 C4 Narrowbody
993 C2S Widebody
993 C4S Widebody
993 Turbo Widebody
996 C2 Narrowbody
996 GT3 Narrowbody
996 C4 Narrowbody
996 C4S Widebody
996 Turbo Widebody
996 GT2 Widebody
997 C2 Narrowbody

997 C4 Widebody
997 C4S Widebody

I have to admit I always thought the S was a widebody until I was shopping for mine. I think because the previous models with an S badge were widebody I assumed that carried on.

If only it weren't black @Dreamr.  Given that I live in a State hotter than Hells Anus I think a black car is an unwise choice.

It’s not a 944, the AC will work on this one

Ditto this ^^ 

My 968 had AC, we drove it home from Brissy, the AC sucks in those! 

My 996's, 986 & 997's all had/have killer AC... hell, I even used to track that 997 in summer, helmet & long sleeves with the AC on :D

Fair call and different story if you don't actually want a black car ... but as others have said above ... the A/C is really good in these cars.

I should know .. I have a black 996.

It's interesting that you fellas make this comment re A/C & 944's.  My 944S2 had outstanding airconditioning.  On advice from @Buchanan Automotive they updated & refurbished the whole system (new parallel flow condensor, new dryer, lines, the lot) & the A/C was just excellent the whole time I owned it (5 years).  Easily as good as any of the modern cars I owned concurrently with it (Golf GTI & Skoda Superb).  Summers were a breeze.......

Re black cars - as stated they look great but I don't have the time to clean/ care for them.  White or lighter colours for me.

+1 The A/C in my old 944 was pretty awesome after getting the same work done.
