We are pleased to present this nicely equipped 2001 Porsche 996 Carrera finished in Seal Grey Metallic over a black leather interior. The 996 is known as the most radical change for Porsche since the model’s debut in 1963. With the new water-cooled engine and highlighting a 6-speed manual transmission this 996 is a desirable model all around. This Carrera was originally built for the US market and resided in California until 2008 when it was purchased. Currently this Porsche is displaying 120k kilometers on the odometer and is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.
The Seal Grey Metallic finish on this 996 is stated to be in great condition with paint protection film wrapping around the front bumper and mirror covers for added protection (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). This 996 has been tastefully equipped with a dealer installed factory aerokit package which includes a revised front bumper, rocker panels, and rear wing. The car rides with class on 18” light alloy turbo wheels which are currently wrapped in Sumitomo tires.
Inside, the cabin is upholstered in Light Grey leather leather and features power-operated front seats. Equipped with Genuine Techart pedals, these add an element of refinement to the driver experience of pure Porsche power. For a tastefully dressed dashboard, this 996 showcases white face gauges and to continue a sporty appearance, the interior was factory ordered with the Carbon fiber package.
Power is derived from a naturally aspirated 3.4 L flat-six engine sending 295 HP to the rear wheels by way of a desirable 6-speed manual transmission. With performance in mind, a 0-60 speed is achieved in as little as 5.2 seconds with a top speed north of 170 MPH. For added aesthetics, this 996 highlights a FabSpeed exhaust. It is stated that the current owner has extensive maintenance records identifying that this Carrera is in excellent running order. Recently, an IMS replacement was performed as well as a new clutch and flywheel and in 2017, spark plugs and coils were replaced. With new fluids and filters, this 996 is ready to be driven.
The sale of this 996 will include two keys, the original owner’s books and a clean Carfax report.
