We are pleased to offer this 2004 Porsche 996 Turbo Cabriolet finished in Arctic Silver Metallic. Equipped with a coveted twin-turbocharged Mezger engine, this 2004 example also came with a 6-speed manual transmission and a Metropol Blue full leather interior featuring painted hardback Sport Seats, metal door sill insignias, and a rear center console in aluminum-look. It has also been upgraded with a full Fabspeed exhaust system, stiffer engine mounts, new BMC air filters, a custom flat-bottom steering wheel, and a Carrera GT-style wooden shift knob. Acquired by the current owner within the last year, this 996 Turbo is now being offered for auction out of Florida with approximately 46k miles showing on the odometer.
This Turbo was ordered in Arctic Silver Metallic with a Metropol Blue cabriolet top. Compared with the 996 Carrera, the Turbo features model-specific front and rear bumpers, wide fenders, side air intakes, and an automatically deployed hydraulic rear spoiler. The front end remains preserved under clear paint protection film and the front bumper is free of license plate mounting holes. The car is reported to have been garage-kept and the seller describes the exterior finish and cabriolet top to be in good condition. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The factory 18” Turbo wheels feature model-logo center caps, aftermarket wheel spacers, and a set of Sumitomo tires that are said to have been mounted within the last 4k miles.
Inside, this Turbo highlights a Metropol Blue full leather interior featuring lowered Sport Seats with painted backrests, a rear center console in aluminum-look, metal door sill insignias, and silver trim on the dashboard, center air vents, and instrument surround. Under prior ownership, Rennline aluminum track mats were installed, and the original steering wheel was custom rebuilt in a flat-bottom style with new leather upholstery and perforated hand grips. The current owner also installed a custom Carrera GT style wooden shift knob. The original carpet mats and leather shift knob are said to accompany the sale and the owner reports all gauges and accessories to be fully functional including the factory climate control and PCM head unit. The cup holder trim cover has come off and the CARFAX report shows an incorrect mileage report on 06/15/2021 which is said to have resulted from clerical error at the DMV.
Derived from the GT1 Le Mans car, the 3.6L twin-turbocharged Mezger flat-six engine in this Turbo generates as much as 415 HP stock. All four wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission with an aftermarket short-shift kit. The car has also been upgraded with a full Fabspeed exhaust system including high-flow 200-cell catalysts, stiffened engine mounts, and new high-performance BMC air filters. The clutch accumulator was replaced in November of 2020 along with the brake master cylinder around the same time as a four-wheel alignment. Corresponding service records are said to accompany the sale.
Accompanied by a clean title, this nicely appointed Turbo Cabriolet awaits its next owner.
