Up for auction is this low-mileage 2002 996 Turbo X50 finished in Seal Grey over black. Featuring an aerokit installed after purchase (factory parts), X50 power package and distinctive wide-body styling, this Turbo represents one of the more desirable water-cooled 911’s on the market. This one-owner example currently shows under 15k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction in excellent condition by a seller in Florida.
Finished in Seal Grey Metallic, this Turbo is said to remain in exceptional cosmetic condition with the only flaw noted as being an area of damage to the bumper that has since been fixed (reference damage report on Carfax). Paint protection film covers the entire front-end of the vehicle, ensuring peace of mind for the next owner. A couple of exterior features include a desirable aerokit rear wing and a set of original factory turbo-twist alloy wheels which come wrapped in Pirelli tires.
Accompanied by an original build sheet totaling $137,980, this 996 is optioned in a sleek black full leather interior that boasts the optional Design Package, Porsche crested headrests, and an exterior paint-matched center console. Creature comforts include heated front seats as well as a radio with 6-disc CD changer. The interior is reportedly in excellent condition, and all gauges electronics and accessories are stated to be fully functional. This is a truly well-sorted example
This Turbo’s impressive 3.6 L flat-six engine is further enhanced by the optional X50 package which consists of a revised ECU, quad-pipe exhaust, and larger K24 turbochargers and intercoolers. With these enhancements, this 996’s turbocharged Mezger engine is capable of putting out 444 HP to all four wheels by way of a proper 6-speed manual transmission. 0-60 is achieved in a blistering 3.7 seconds while top speeds of over 190mph have been recorded. This Turbo is stated to be up-to-date on all due maintenance and the seller has indicated that a folder full of records will be provided in the sale.
The Mezger engine is regarded by many Porsche experts as the ultimate water-cooled engine. This GT1 derived engine doesn’t suffer from IMS bearing related issues as its oil system ensures constant lubrication. As far as 996’s go, this is one of the more reliable models available
The sale of this pristine 996 Turbo will include two sets of keys, original owner’s manuals and a clean Carfax report. Prepared for immediate delivery to its next owner, this Turbo is offered in ready-to-drive condition with a clear title and a collection of service records.
