Representing the model’s inaugural year, this 2001 996 Turbo features a 6-speed manual gearbox connected to a race-derived Mezger engine. It also came optioned with a Boxster Red Special Leather interior featuring Exclusive aluminum trim. Said to have spent the majority of its life tucked away in climate-controlled storage while being routinely started and driven for mechanical exercise, this Turbo shows just over 26k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.
This Turbo comes finished in Polar Silver Metallic and highlights distinctive wide fenders, side air intakes, and a speed-activated rear spoiler. The seller notes a few minor chips on the front end as well as some scraping on the underside of the front spoiler, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report. This 996 rides on factory 18” Turbo Twist wheels with colored Porsche center crests and Bridgestone Potenza tires dated from 2013.
Inside, the Boxster Red Special Leather interior features Exclusive aluminum instrument dials as well as leather and aluminum trim for the shift knob and handbrake handle. The cabin is said to remain very well preserved apart from some minor scratches around the ignition slot and scuffs on the door sills. Factory features include the Digital Sound Package, automatic climate control, power windows, self-dimming mirrors with an integrated rain sensor, and an AM/FM Radio with a 6-disc CD changer. All lights, gauges, and accessories are said to be functioning properly.
This 996 is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.6L flat-six Mezger engine rated at 415 HP and 415 lb.-ft of torque. All four wheels are driven by way of a desirable 6-speed manual transmission providing a 0-60 time of approximately 4 seconds. The CARFAX report shows a long service history dating as far back as 2004, and the seller notes that there are no outstanding maintenance items at this time.
This sale will include a clean title. Beautifully configured and sparingly driven, this 6-speed 996 Turbo is an excellent choice for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
