A sendoff to the 996 generation, the 911 Turbo S was produced for the 2005 model year as the ultimate flagship 911 featuring the X50 Powerkit and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) as standard equipment. This example is one of only 600 Turbo S Coupes produced in total and comes finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a Graphite Grey full leather interior. It was also equipped from the factory with optional 18” GT3 wheels, stainless steel exhaust pipes, and a carbon fiber-trimmed Sport Shifter for its 6-speed manual transmission. Benefitting from a $36k service investment including welded coolant pipes, this Turbo S Coupe was previously listed on PCARMARKET and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida while showing just over 48k miles on the odometer.
The 996 Turbo features distinctive bodywork with model-specific bumpers, flared rocker panels, a speed-activated rear spoiler, and wide fenders with integrated side air intakes. The Turbo S receives silver badging on the rear decklid and yellow-painted calipers as part of its ceramic brake system. This Turbo S is said to be one of only 40 U.S. examples finished in Arctic Silver Metallic and features optional stainless-steel quad-tipped exhaust pipes. It rides on optional 18” GT3 wheels dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires (3821). The seller describes the exterior to be in very good overall condition with no significant imperfections, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
Inside, the Turbo S features aluminum-look instrument dials with a “Turbo S” logo tachometer as well as model logo door sills and a silver designation on the center console. The cabin of this example is trimmed in Graphite Grey full leather upholstery and features optional carbon fiber and aluminum inlays for the shifter and brake handle. Other options heated front seats with lumbar support, a Sport Shifter, and Natural Grey floor mats. The car is also equipped with cruise control, a 6-disc CD changer, and a Bose sound system. The seller indicates a small blemish on the radio trim surround and a new replacement trim piece will be included.
The Turbo S comes standard with the X50 Powerkit which equips its 3.6-liter Mezger flat-six engine with larger K24 turbochargers and intercoolers along with a revised ECU and exhaust system. Up to 450 HP is sent to all four wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) come standard and includes larger 6-piston monobloc front calipers and cross-drilled 350mm ceramic discs at the front and rear. The seller indicates that $36k was invested in service between 2020 and 2021 including welded coolant lines, upgraded silicone hoses, and a performance air filter. Corresponding records are provided in the gallery.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a window sticker, service records, and a clean title.
