Porsche introduced the 996 Turbo as fresh 2001 year model, equipped with an all-wheel-drive system and a 3.6-litre, twin turbo charged and intercooled flat-six engine, that generated maximum power output of over 400 horesepower, enabling new 911 model capable of accelerating from 0–60 mph in and astonishing 4.2 seconds. The Turbo is powered by a water-cooled twin-turbocharged and intercooled 3.6-litre flat-6 engine derived from the 1998 Le Mans winning 911 GT1 race car.
Featuring a 6-speed manual transmission, it features dramatic, revised styling and a wider stance than the naturally aspirated 996 Carrera models. Accented with all new bi-xenon headlamps and an electronically adjustable rear spoiler which activated at the speed of 76 mph and lowered at 36 mph. The bodywork was also extensively revised to improve airflow to 3 radiators in the front of the vehicle and also to accommodate 18-inch wheels and tires.
Adult owned, maintained and driven just over 50K original miles, this Turbo Porsche presents itself in nearly “as new” condition throughout. From the clear headlamp lenses, to the pristine condition of high wear parts such as front spoiler trim, seat bolsters, to door sill plate finish, the fastidious price of ownership enjoyed by this iconic Porsche is clearly evident.
As one would expect by a “collector grade” investment vehicle, a full complememnt of Factory Manuals, “books” and tools is included in the spotless, factory condition front “bonnet” location as is the Factory CD Changer and “never mounted” spare tire/wheel.
Naturally a “clean” CarFax is included with the vehicle, showcasing only three previous owners. In addition, and original Factory Porsche Certificate of Authenticity included.
