This 996 comes finished in Arctic Silver Metallic and rides on factory optioned 18” 993 Turbo-Look wheels with colored Porsche crest center caps.  The rear bumperettes have been painted to match and clear European-spec lenses have been installed for the corner markers.  The paint is described to have been kept in very good condition overall, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report.  The wheels come mounted with a set of Bridgestone Potenza tires dated from 2019.

Inside, this Carrera features a black interior with optional supple leather seats and extended leather trim covering the dashboard and door panels.  Other optional features include exclusive aluminum inlays for the shift knob and handbrake lever, 8-way electrical seats with driver memory, and a three-spoke steering wheel.  An upgraded 997 shifter has been installed and the original shifter assembly is said to accompany the sale.  The factory specifications label on the underside of the hood lists the following equipment codes:

    @charltonr1971 Reserve is not met. Highest bidder will win if reserve is reached. Be sure to be tuned in the final 15 minutes or so, which is historically where the action happens. I will advise when the current bid is nearing reserve.

    @tonyagc Preventive measure!

  • tonyagc (registered bidder) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    Hi....Nice car! Was the GBox upgraded transmission detents a preventive measure or was there an existing pop out problem?

  • bdonahue54 (seller) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    As the sale comes to a close, wanted to jump in and say THANK YOU to those viewing and bidding thus far. I will be monitoring the thread, assisting with questions. This car is a cherry. One of you will be extremely satisfied.

    Couple items that came to mind:

    The front plate mounting bracket is not drilled into the bumper. Under it lies a K40 Radar, dealer installed in period. I chose to upload the most recent and noteworthy service docs, but happy to upload the others upon request.

    Cheers and happy bidding!

    Happy Friday fellow Porsche fanatics,

    Proud to offer this spectacular example through Pcarmarket. Unfortunately, my iPhone just doesn't showcase the condition of this car. Having seen, driven, and owned many 996 examples, this one takes the cake. There is something special to be up close and personal with what is essentially a brand new 911 two decades later. For those local to Charlotte, I kindly encourage interested parties to come lay eyes on the car. PPI's welcomed anywhere you may please. (locally) I'll be monitoring the platform to answer and and all questions. Have an awesome weekend.!
