Produced for one year only, the Porsche 996 Turbo S was a sendoff to the 996 generation featuring the X50 Powerkit and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) as standard equipment. This Turbo S is one of less than 1,000 Cabriolet versions produced and comes finished in Black over matching full leather upholstery with features Supple Leather seats, Porsche-crested headrests, a storage compartment lid with a Turbo logo, an aluminum/leather shifter & brake handle, a Sport Shifter, and a thicker leather steering wheel. It was also optioned with a 6-speed manual transmission, stainless steel exhaust pipes, 18” Sport Techno wheels, and Custom Tailoring (special wishes that require further communication). A California car until 2016, this Turbo S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Missouri while showing less than 11k 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 example comes finished in Black with a matching convertible soft top. It was optioned with stainless steel exhaust pipes and 18” Sport Techno currently dressed in Bridgestone Potenza S-02A tires from 2013. The seller notes some paint imperfections on the hood have been professionally touched-up. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin is appointed with Black full leather upholstery including optional supple leather seats and black floor mats with Porsche lettering. Additional options include Porsche-crested headrests, adjustable front seat lumbar support, lowered seats (-10mm), a thicker steering wheel, a Sport Shifter, a Turbo-embossed storage compartment lid, and an aluminum/leather shifter and brake handle. Other features include dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and a Bose sound system.
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 include larger 6-piston monobloc front calipers and cross-drilled 350mm ceramic discs at the front and rear. The seller adds that an oil and filter change was carried out in June 2023 and the CARFAX report shows a total of 11 service history entries.
