We are pleased to present this 2001 Porsche 996 Turbo Coupe finished in Black Metallic over a Savanna Beige leather interior. Bearing the internal production code “762”, this 2001 example is designated as one of the original launch vehicles for the 996 generation Turbo. Featuring the coveted twin-turbocharged 3.6L Mezger engine, this low-mile 996 also came factory optioned with supple leather front and rear seats, the Digital Sound Package, and a 6-speed manual transmission. Having spent nearly its entire life in California, this 996 Turbo is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Arizona while showing just over 19k miles on the odometer.
The Black Metallic finish accentuates the distinctive Turbo-specific bodywork including wide fenders, side air intakes, and a speed-activated rear spoiler. The seller notes some scrapes and fading on the lower front lip, a blemish on the driver door handle, and some road-going wear on the front bumper. Additional photos are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. This 996 rides on factory 18” Turbo Twist wheels with colored Porsche center crests and Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Tread depth measurements are provided for reference in the photo gallery.
Inside, the Savanna Beige interior highlights optional supple leather upholstery on the front and rear seats. The seller notes some wear to the driver's bolster and a few imperfections in the soft-touch material on the center console and seat control switches. Factory amenities include power-adjustable front seats with driver’s side adjustable lumbar support, automatic climate control, power windows, and a Nokia Digital Sound Processing system.
This 996 is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.6L flat-six Mezger engine rated at 415 HP and 415 lb.-ft of torque. All four wheels are driven by way of a desirable 6-speed manual transmission providing a 0-60 time of approximately 4 seconds. Service items addressed within the last 2k miles are said to include a new right-front window regulator, a new fuel level sending unit, an oil change, and a brake fluid flush. The CARFAX report also highlights several services completed throughout the years by Hoehn Porsche of California. Images of the underside are available in the photo gallery.
This sale will include a clean title. Nicely configured and sparingly driven, this 6-speed 996 Turbo is an excellent choice for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
