We are excited to offer this truly special Porsche 996 Carrera 4 Millennium Edition for auction. In 2000, Porsche commemorated the new millennium by building a total of 911 examples of this desirable Carrera 4. The Millennium Edition comes standard with many features unique to itself, unseen on any other edition. This car (#822/911) spent about 30k of its 33k mile lifetime in California. It now resides in New York and is being offered in exceptional condition.
This Millennium Edition 996 is finished in striking Violet Chromaflair, which according to the Porsche brochure “…changes from black to dark green to an elegant shade of violet.” This very unique factory color registers as original under the paint meter and bears minimal road going wear, showing no signs of abuse. This special edition is equipped with aggressive chrome 18” Turbo Twist wheels off of the Turbo model. The dealer states that one wheel shows slight signs of curb rash. This vehicle also comes equipped with a rear wiper and all-in-all, the condition of this Carrera 4 reflects that of a much lower mile example.
Inside of this very limited 996 you will find a luscious full natural brown leather interior with special burr-maple trim. This luxurious factory trim can be found on the steering wheel, handbrake cover, shift knob, and door pulls. This car has been configured with a sunroof and features an Alcantara headliner. Millennium model 996’s come fitted with PCM, a 6-disc changer, and heated seats as well. Below the climate control system and between the heated seat controls sits a numbered plaque to remind the driver that this is no ordinary 996 C4. The dealer would like to point out minor cracking in steering wheel and drivers door handle wood, but claims the interior is otherwise in exceptional condition for a car of this age.
This 996 Carrera 4 is powered by Porsche’s legendary 3.4L flat-six motor producing 296hp and 273lb-ft of torque. It is mated to a highly desirable manual six-speed transmission, allowing the driver to fully experience the performance that this car delivers through its four-wheel drivetrain. The selling dealer just completed the IMS and rear main seal service.
A clean Carfax report indicates regular maintenance has been performed throughout the cars life. The sale will include extensive maintenance records, books, and both keys. Do not miss your opportunity to bid on such a rare piece of Porsche heritage.
