Description

In 2000, Porsche introduced the 996 Turbo, equipped with four-wheel-drive and a 3.6-litre, twin turbocharged and intercooled flat-six producing 420bhp, making the car capable of 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds.

In 2002, the standard models underwent minor re-styling, which included switching to the Turbo-style headlamps and to a new front fascia. These were sometimes known as the Mk2 generation of the 996.

Although the Turbo is water-cooled, it is not the same engine that is found in regular 996s. The turbo engine can trace its ancestry back to the old air-cooled units and is directly related not only to the 996 GT3 but also the GT1 racer (3.2-litres and 600bhp!). The other 996 engines were a completely different design and had gasket problems that could lead to catastrophic failures, but not so the Turbo. This engine is very strong and can be tuned up to well over 500bhp.

First registered in 2003 (on a 53 number plate) this 996 Turbo has three previous owners and has just over 101,000 miles from new. Finished in grey metallic with a contrasting black hide interior, the car boasts the aluminium-look package with aluminium coloured dials, gear lever and handbrake along with stainless-steel pipes and is described as being in original condition with no engine modifications. The car has a full documented service history carried out by Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield and HP Motorsports.
