This Porsche Type 996 was the first new 911 that was completely redesigned. Only 503 Turbo S with automatic transmission are made. The Turbo was introduced in 2000, increasing power output to 415 brake horsepower, with a 0–60 sprint over in just 4.2 seconds. As the factory began to wind down this beloved model, it offered the end-all-be-all of the series: the Turbo S is a very expensive model (€ 225.000,00) with many/many options. The vital statistics of this fully original Turbo S are impressive !
Technically, the Turbo S remained similar to the Turbo, but instead was outfitted with the X50 + X51 original manufacturer performance options, bumping horsepower up to 485 brake horsepower, as well as the brakes of the 911 Turbo S also has been uprated similarly. Fitted as standard are the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes(PCCB) system, offering a 50% weight reduction per wheel over the conventional steel brake disc equivalent, as well as superior fade resistance characteristics under heavy braking.
Larger turbochargers and improved intercoolers helped to raise torque to 457 foot pounds. Top speed was rated at >200 mph. Offered here is one such rare example, finished in the classic colour combination of silver exterior on black leather. Provided with the car are all of the original manuals it as a two-owner vehicle with no accidents.
Originally delivered new to the Middle East, this Turbo S was exported to The Netherlands in 2015, where it has been with its current owner. It has always been serviced by Porsche and it is now ready to be driven and enjoyed.
