Unveiled in 1999, the Porsche's 996 generation marked a significant evolution by adopting a water-cooled flat-six engine. This 1999 Carrera Coupe comes finished in Artic Silver Metallic over Black and pairs a 6-speed manual transmission with its 3.4-liter flat-six engine. It features power-operated and heated front seats, Litronic headlights, traction control, an onboard computer, a Hi-Fi audio system, an electric sunroof, and more. Showing just over 50k miles on the odometer, this 996 is now being offered for auction out of Pennsylvania.
This 996 Carrera comes finished in Arctic Silver Metallic and rides on upgraded factory 18” Turbo-look wheels wrapped in new Sumitomo HTR Z5 tires. Equipment includes a speed-activated rear spoiler, dual exhaust outlets, and optional Litronic headlights. The seller notes a few minor nicks and signs of road-going wear. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The Black interior showcases heated and power-operated seats in optional supple leather upholstery. Additional features include an onboard computer, a Hi-Fi audio system, a central locking system, automatic climate control, and an electric sunroof. The seller notes the soft-touch material on some plastic trim pieces has degraded and all gauges, electronics, and accessories are working properly.
Power is derived from a 3.4-liter flat-six engine, delivering up to 296 HP and 285 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. A new OEM Porsche engine was installed under warranty in 2008 at approximately 30,150 miles following a cracked cylinder that caused engine failure. The CARFAX report shows 21 service history records, and the seller notes the car underwent a series of services in November 2023 including a Liqui Moly oil and filter change, a brake fluid flush, and the installation of new front brake pads, rotors, and sensors. Both front window regulators have also been replaced along with new ignition coils, spark plugs, and front struts.
The sale will include a clean title, three keys, owner’s manuals, a window sticker, a toolkit, a spare tire, sales literature, and service documentation.
The seller would like you to know: “This 911 is closer to a collector-grade example than not but it can continue to be enjoyed given the 50k on the chassis and even lower mileage on the engine. It does everything it is supposed to do and with such timeless looks and curves, this 996 will continue to age better with time. This is the same spec car that crashed through the window at the beginning of the Gone in 60 Seconds opening scene. Since that movie came out 996.1 C2 was the car that put Porsches on the map for me. I am excited to bring this prime and honest example to the market and hope that it finds a nice home and caretaker.”
