After an extraordinary production run that lasted from 1963 to 1997, Porsche’s iconic air-cooled 911 was dramatically reinvented for the 1998 model year as the Type 996. While its pedigree and rear-engine design were unmistakably Porsche, this generation heralded a major revolution. Changes included a completely redesigned body, a newly laid-out interior, and most notably, the engine was now water-cooled—a critical change necessary to keep contemporary high-performance engines at peak operating temperatures. In 2001, the 911 Turbo made its much-anticipated return to the Porsche model lineup, boasting an impressive 415 horsepower and 413 foot-pounds of torque. For the 2002 model year, Porsche slightly restyled the 911, sometimes referred to as the 996.2 iteration—which included a new shared headlight design, new front fascia, and most importantly the 3.4-liter engine bumped to 3.6-liters.
This beautiful 2002 Porsche 911 Turbo coupe was produced in June 2002 and was finished in Black over a Graphite Grey full leather interior. The Turbo was optioned with wheel caps with colored crest, supple leather front and rear, a black top, matching Graphite Grey floor mat, and the P13 Advanced Design Package. The interior features automatic climate control, Porsche’s CR-220 multi-disc radio unit, as well as a carbon fiber shifter arm and carbon fiber console. To date, the car has covered 49,078 kilometers (~30,496 miles) from new.
