Up for auction at no reserve is this 2001 Porsche 996 Carrera finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a black interior. This 2001 Coupe features a 3.4 L flat-six engine and comes factory optioned with leather front and rear seats, Xenon headlamps, and a 6-speed manual transmission. With approximately 64k miles currently showing on the odometer, this 996 is said to be in great running order and is now being offered by its selling dealer out of Florida accompanied by original manuals, tools, a stamped service book, and a clean title.
The Arctic Silver Metallic finish is said to be in very good overall condition, free of any noteworthy imperfections. The front bumper and partial front end are said to have been refinished at some point and CARFAX shows minor damage in 2013 that is believed to have been purely cosmetic (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). Clear Euro side marker lenses have been installed along with OEM Porsche 18" Turbo Twist wheels that come dressed in relatively new tires.
Inside, the black interior is factory configured with 8-way power-operated and heated front seats in leather, rear seats in leather, a sound system, CD storage compartment, and automatic climate control. A carbon-fiber trimmed shift knob and handbrake cover have been added and a double-din Alpine head unit has been installed which offers Bluetooth connectivity and a backup camera. All gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional and the cabin is said to be in great shape except for some imperfections on shifter base trim.
This first-generation 996 Carrera is powered by a 3.4 L flat-six engine paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. 296 HP and 258 lb.-ft of torque are distributed to the rear wheels, allowing this Carrera to accelerate from 0-60 MPH in approximately 5 seconds while reaching a top speed of over 170 MPH. The dealer service book is included with its last stamp recorded in 2015. A complimentary oil service will be carried out prior to sale and this 996 is said to be in excellent operating condition with a long shakedown trip recently completed by the seller with no issues to speak of. There is no record of an IMS bearing upgrade.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, tools, a stamped dealer service book, and a clean title.
