Launched in the United States during the spring of 1998 as a 199 model, the all-new 996-generation Porsche 911 marked nothing short of a revolution in the hallowed halls of Stuttgart.
Excellence magazine’s editors described the impact of the new 996 best in a recent edition of its Porsche Buyers Guide After 35 years of updated models, the new 996 was the first 100-persent new 911 since 1964. And what a 911 it was Larger yet lighter than its predecessor, the 996 was also more powerful, more refined, more aerodynamic, and easier to drive than the 993. Totally new, the 996-series 911 featured a water-cooled flat-6 engine for the very first time. In addition to providing greater power output and scope for future development, the new four cam operated valvetrain and VarioCam system allowed 25 degrees of adjustment for the intake cam timing, dictated by engine speed and load.
Displacing 3,387 cc, this short stroke engine was made for high operating speeds and with 11.3 compression, it delivered 296 DIN horsepower at 6,800 rpm in basic form 320 bhp SAE and gave the new 911 the power and performance to match its sleek new body. Regarding the new 911’s body, the 911/996, better aerodynamics and lower rear-end lift were designed-in benefits of the new body style, along with lower overall weight, sharpening overall performance and handling, which remains stellar and includes 0-to-60 acceleration in less than 5 seconds with the rear-mounted flat-6 developing 320 brake horsepower and 273 foot-pounds of useful torque output.
Produced during November 2002 and carrying an MSRP of 78,850 when new, this striking 2003 Porsche Carrera is a highly desirable 6-speed manual gearbox car with only 57,700 miles that benefits from very good care and maintenance. Finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over black leather, this highly optioned sunroof example was also factory-equipped with heated front seats, 18-inch light alloy Carrera wheels, a rear window wiper, Porsche Stability Management, the Bose high-end sound package, black floor mats with Porsche lettering, power seat and Xenon headlamp packages, and aluminum-faced instrument dials.
As offered, this outstanding example includes a clean Carfax report confirming plenty of service records. Importantly, the IMS bearing has been replaced.
