Description

The 911 Turbo has certainly earned its place in the Automotive Hall of Fame, offering genuine supercar performance in a compact and practical package. And when the 996 exploded onto the supercar scene in 2000, it demonstrated that Porsche could produce a thoroughly sophisticated, all-wheel-drive, all-weather, all-road supercar that ironed out the handling quirks which had plagued earlier incarnations.

Compared with the previous 993 model, the 996 offered a smoother, sleeker body, a more raked windshield, a redesigned and roomier interior and a switch to the new “fried egg” shaped headlamps from the old “bug eye” shaped ones. It also cleverly managed to be 45 per cent stiffer yet considerably lighter than its older siblings.

But the biggest change with the 996 was the switch to a water-cooled engine producing more power yet much better fuel economy. The Turbo is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.6-litre flat-6 engine which shares a bloodline with the 1998 LeMans winning 911 GT1 race car. Unlike the standard 996 engine which has a tendency to suffer gasket problems, the completely different design of the Turbo engine means it’s as strong as an ox and can be tuned up to well over 500bhp if you’re so inclined.

Without tuning, the 996 Turbo’s 420bhp might not sound that remarkable in today’s terms, but don’t underestimate this little car. It’s incredibly quick: an adrenaline-pumping, euphoria-producing, pinned-to-your-seat kind of quick. And with the all-wheel-drive providing incredible grip and traction and the brakes harnessing the Turbo’s power, you’ll finish any journey feeling pretty much invincible.

So, it is a pleasure to offer this very special 2001 Porsche 911 MK 996 3.6 Turbo 6-Speed Manual Coupe, which has covered only 36,000 miles and benefits from a Full Porsche Service History.

Finished in the stunning Lapis Blue Metallic, it has the 18-inch 996 Turbo Alloy Wheels in Silver, Brake Calipers in Red, Twin Stainless Steel Exhaust Tailpipes and Electric Tilt and Slide Sunroof.

The interior of this Turbo is trimmed in the Extended Grey Leather with the carpets also in Grey. It also features Electric, Heated Memory Seats, 3-spoke Sport Steering Wheel in Leather, Cruise Control and Automatic Climate Control.

As with every one of our cars, this Porsche has been carefully sourced and prepared to an exceptional standard. So, if you’re looking for a great investment buy that’s also great fun to drive, then you can’t go far wrong with this first Porsche supercar of the modern era.
