A wood-trimmed steering wheel is installed as well as an aftermarket radio, and all gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional.
Representing the first of the water-cooled 911’s, this 996 Carrera is equipped with a 3.4 L flat-six engine that sends as much as 296 HP and 258 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox and factory optioned limited-slip differential.
