We are pleased to present this 2002 Porsche 996 Carrera Cabriolet 6-speed finished in Speed Yellow over a black interior with painted hardback leather Sport Seats. Sold at an original sticker price of over $89k from a dealership in California, this 2002 example showcases exclusive options including contrasting Speed Yellow interior accents, flared rocker panels, and the Advanced Technic Package. This Cabriolet has been meticulously cared for throughout its life with an IMS bearing upgrade recently carried out at a cost of over $3k. Accompanied by a complete collection of records from new, this 996 is now being offered by its 2nd owner out of Texas while showing just over 25k miles on the odometer.
The eye-catching Speed Yellow finish is said to be in excellent condition with a recent paint correction and G-Techniq ceramic coating treatment. Clear paint protection film has also been applied over the entire front end including the mirror covers. Carfax shows minor damage to the rear end in 2003 which is said to have been a cosmetic imperfection addressed at the dealership when new. Noteworthy details on this example include window tint, optional flared rocker panels, and factory 18” light alloy Carrera wheels that come dressed in older but healthy Continental Extreme Contact tires.
Inside, the black interior has been appointed with desirable painted hardback Sport Seats in leather. Other exclusive features include a Speed Yellow painted rear center console, Speed Yellow seatbelts, and a shifter and brake handle in aluminum/leather. Amenities include heated front seats, Porsche Stability Management (PSM), and the Advanced Technic Package which includes a rear wind deflector, 6-disc CD changer, and the Bose Digital Audio System. All gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional and an aftermarket Rennkit Bluetooth receiver has been integrated along with a cell phone mount.
This 996 is equipped with a 3.6 L flat-six engine capable of developing 320 HP and 273 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission allowing for a 0-60 time of approximately 5 seconds and a top speed north of 170 MPH. The rear main seal is reported to have been replaced at the selling dealership under warranty when new, and the IMS bearing was upgraded earlier in 2020 (invoice provided in the photo gallery). Complete service records are available dating back to the original purchase and this 996 is reported to be in exceptional driving condition with a new battery recently installed.
This sale will include a set of 2 keys and 1 valet key, the original books and tools, service records, the original window sticker, a Porsche wind deflector, an interior LED lighting kit, spare storage compartment cubbies, an extra windshield washer cover, and a clean title. This beautifully presented and generously equipped Cabriolet makes the perfect 996 for any discerning enthusiast, do not miss out.
