Up for auction is this 2000 Porsche 996 Carrera Cabriolet finished in Guards Red over a custom black interior. Highlighting an IMS bearing replacement along with a 6-speed manual transmission, this 996 has been modified with performance and design upgrades such as Recaro seats, Fabtech headers, Eibach lowering springs, sport cats and more. With only 74.5k-miles on the odometer, this 996 Cabriolet is now being offered by its seller out of Fair Oaks, CA.
The Guards Red finish is said to be in great condition. Exterior details include aftermarket taillights, front tow hitch, a factory black cabriolet top and quad exhaust tips. Eibach lowering springs are tucked behind black painted replica BBS wheels that wear Riken tires.
Inside, the factory black interior has been redesigned with an assortment of modifications. These include Recaro seats, Polk speakers, Alpine amps, JL subwoofers, a suede shift boot with metal shift knob, suede storage lid with red stitching, red stitching on the emergency brake, red stitched steering wheel, and red painted ash tray and ignition molding. The seller notes that all functions and accessories are in working order.
Power comes from a 3.4L naturally aspirated flat-six engine that is capable of producing 296 HP from the factory. This power is sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. Performance upgrades include Fabtech headers, sport cats and mufflers, larger throttle body, and a K&N air filter. The stock throttle body and air filter are currently installed to pass California smog restrictions. Said to have been dealer serviced throughout most of its life, this example benefits from an IMS bearing replacement at 70k-miles. It is currently up-to-date on service with an oil service conducted in June of 2020.
Included in the sale of this uniquely configured 996 Cabriolet are two keys and service records.
