This 2004 Porsche 996 Carrera Cabriolet is finished in Basalt Black Metallic over a Black interior and features a 6-speed manual transmission paired with its 3.6-liter flat-six engine. The car was also factory equipped with optional 18” Light Alloy Carrera wheels, Porsche Stability Management (PSM), the Xenon Headlamp Package, heated leather Sport Seats, aluminum instrument dials, and Custom Tailoring (special wishes that require further communication). This 996 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York.
This Carrera Cabriolet is finished in Basalt Black Metallic with a black convertible top and rides on optional 18” Light Alloy Carrera wheels with colored Porsche crest center caps. Other equipment includes optional bi-xenon headlamps, a speed-activated rear spoiler, dual polished tailpipes, and black brake calipers with white Porsche lettering. The car rides on Pirelli P Zero tires from 2017 and the seller describes the car’s exterior to be in excellent overall condition. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a damage-free CARFAX report.
The Black interior includes optional heated and electrically adjustable Sport Seats in leather as well as Exclusive aluminum instrument dials, auto-dimming mirrors, and a HiFi sound system. Standard equipment includes automatic climate control, cruise control, door sill guards with Carrera logos, a three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel, power windows and mirrors, a central locking system, a CD storage compartment, and a Porsche CDR23 stereo. All gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional.
A naturally aspirated 3.6-liter flat-six engine delivers up to 320 HP and 273 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. Acceleration from 0-60 MPH takes place in approximately 5 seconds and stopping power comes from fixed 4-piston brakes paired with cross-drilled discs at each corner. The seller notes that all available maintenance history is provided on the CARFAX report and the IMS bearing has not been replaced.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, and a branded New York title. The CARFAX report shows a not actual mileage title issued in 2010 and the seller contests that this was the result of a clerical error and that the mileage displayed on the odometer is accurate.
