Description

996 is the internal designation for the 911 model manufactured by Porsche from 1997 to 2006.

The Porsche 996 had little in common with its predecessor, and was the first entirely new chassis platform since the launch of the first 911, as well as introducing a water-cooled engine for the first time. Technically it was a very big and innovative change from the original design of the 911.

When it comes to design, a lot has also changed, the main changes being a slimmer body, with a more inclined windshield and “fried egg” headlights, so called due to the integrated amber turn signals, instead of the more vertical 'beetle-type' headlamps. The interior has also been completely redesigned.

The Turbo versions of the 996 were unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1999. They use a 3.6-liter, turbocharged water-cooled flat-6 engine, derived from that used in the Porsche 911 GT1 winner of the 24-hour Le Mans in 1998. With 420 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 563 N⋅m of torque, four-wheel drive and, in this case, with the traditional 6-speed manual gearbox.

This 996 Turbo is in good condition and all revisions were made to the brand with proof in the books.
