Up for auction is this low-mileage 2000 Porsche 996 Carrera Coupe finished in Slate Grey Metallic. This well-cared for example features exclusive factory options, a desirable 6-speed manual transmission, and a clean bill of health with a IMS bearing upgrade. Showing just over 23k miles on the odometer, this 996 is being offered for auction by its seller in Lindenhurst, NY.
Finished in Slate Grey Metallic ($3k option), this Carrera is stated to be in excellent garage-kept condition with partial paint protection film covering the front clip. The sleek and narrow body of this C2 creates a beautifully eloquent silhouette that is perfectly accentuated by eye catching red brake calipers (done by previous owner) behind a set of upgraded factory 18” wheels. The wheels come wrapped in Sumitomo tires with a good amount of tread life remaining. The seller notes that the wheels have recently been professionally refinished and are presented in immaculate condition.
Inside, this Carrera sports a Graphite Grey full leather interior that features carbon fiber accents throughout. Nicely spec’d when ordered new, this Carrera boasted an original MSRP of $83k and comes equipped with options such as: factory power adjustable heated supple leather seats, Porsche Stability Management system, Hi-Fi sound package, and Litronic Headlights. The seller reports that all the switches, gauges and electrics are fully functional.
Powering this 996 Carrera is a naturally aspirated water-cooled 3.4L flax-six engine that delivers approximately 296 HP to the rear wheels via a smooth 6-speed manual transmission. The intoxicating rumble of this Carrera’s naturally aspirated engine has been further enhanced by an aftermarket exhaust system (believed to be BBE), which provides a deep and satisfying exhaust note. The seller reports that the engine has recently received a service including new fluids and filters and stands in excellent running condition.
The sale of this 996 Carrera will include two-keys, all service records, original documentation, and a clean Carfax. If you have been waiting for a unique and well-cared for 996 this is the opportunity you have been waiting for.
