21K-Mile 2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 6-Speed

Up for auction is this low-mileage 2002 Porsche 996 Carrera finished in Guards Red over a black leather interior. This particular example has been kept under the diligent care of its original owner from new.  With factory options including the M030 special rigid chassis, Advanced Technic Package, and Comfort Package, this 996 was sold at an original sticker price of just under $80k.  Showing only 21k miles on the odometer, this exceptional 996 Carrera is being listed by its original owner out of Alabama accompanied by a clean title and Carfax report.

Reported to have always been garage-kept and only driven under ideal conditions, the Guards Red paint is said to be excellent. Clear paint protection film has been applied over the front end one small touch up noted noted on the front film. (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). The factory 18” light alloy Carrera wheels exhibit some minor imperfections and are currently dressed in Continental tires.

Inside, the black leather interior is reported to be in excellent condition with all gauges and accessories remaining fully functional. Options listed on the original window sticker include the following:

  • Special Chassis Rigidly Tuned (M030)
  • 18" Light Alloy Carrera Wheels
  • Wheel Caps with Colored Crest
  • Porsche Stability Management
  • AM/FM Radio with CD Player
  • Black Leather Seats
  • Black Mats - Porsche Lettering
  • Comfort Package
  • Advanced Technic Package
  • Heated Front Seat Package

The 3.6 L flat-six engine produces 320 HP, which is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox. 0-60 MPH is achieved in as little as 5 seconds while reaching a top speed of over 170 mph. With the M030 option selected, this 996 benefits from suspension components that increase firmness while reducing body roll.  Consistent routine maintenance has been performed including a recent major service conducted within the last 1k miles. The IMS bearing has not been addressed and the car is said to be in excellent running order.

Included in the sale of this impeccably well-kept Carrera is a set of two keys,  original books and tools, service records, and a clean title.

    @Ajverga thanks for nice comments. Don’t know if a single best thing I like. Love sound and handling. Not really anything I don’t like. I have four Porsches and have probably owned a dozen thru the years. Miss all I have sold. I enjoy taking care of them, the cleaning waxing whatever.

  • Ajverga (registered bidder) 1 day, 8 hoursago

    @TGWahoo This is one beautiful car! The care you have put into it shows, I am sure selling it was not an easy decision. What would you say is the best feature of this car? Your least favorite?

  • TGWahoo (seller) 2 days, 11 hoursago

    @nobrakes Agree. If I wasn’t retiring I wouldn’t be selling it. A blast to drive. Has always been driven with a bra on it on highway so chip free. Bra and cover included with car. Can see them in trunk picture. Thanks for comments.

    @mdavidson has been serviced yearly despite only averaging a thousand miles a year. Have all records. Big service at 20500 miles.

    Wow! Great example of what will certainly prove to be the MOST important and collectible of the water cooled 911's. These cars romp and are thoroughly analog. Its spared the interior bling that detracts from a 997. Best ass of any 911, bar none. There is nary a sharp angle on its beautifully organic shape... those headlights are perfect for this design. The steering on these C2's is as good as it gets. I've owned my '02 C2 Speed Yellow 6-speed since new, still sporting its original IMS bearing and has been bullet proof reliable. This from a guy who has owned dozens of Porsches. GLWTS

    Thanks. Also, what service records do you have? Carfax only shows one service in 2006, but I'm sure there are others.
