In 2000, Porsche introduced the 996 Turbo, equipped with a four-wheel-drive system and a 3.6-litre, twin-turbocharged and intercooled flat-six engine generating a maximum power output of 414 hp, making the car capable of accelerating 0–60 mph in 4.2 seconds and one of the fastest productions cars available.  The 996 was Porsche’s first departure from a air cooled to water cooled motor and there was a debate with the hard core Porsche family on this new model.  There were also issues with the IMS bearing, which had lubrication problems and when it fails, the entire engine goes. However, the 2001-2005 Porsche 996 Turbo avoids the IMS and other 996 engine problems completely and are now considered some of the most reliable Turbo models.

This example was ordered in Midnight Blue Metallic with Graphite Grey full leather and the desirable X50 performance option ($18,000) with has the K24 larger turbo’s, larger intercoolers, heavy duty tranny, special ECU tuning and as a result the horse power increased to 450.  The car was originally ordered in CA at Sonnen Porsche in San Rafael and has always been a CA car with 3 owners from new.  It is a well maintained car and has had recent maintenance that includes; oil and service, new clutch slave and accumulator, new radiators, new CV boots. and new tires and alignment, HRE custom wheels (original to come with the sale), tinted windows and full front clear bra recently installed.

The car comes with 2 keys, owner’s manual, a binder of all maintenance, and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

If you are looking for a well maintained 996 Turbo that also looks amazing this is the car to buy.
