We are pleased to present this 2002 Porsche 996 Carrera Targa finished in Seal Grey Metallic. Offered between 2002 and 2004, the Targa is one of the rarest models of the 996 generation featuring a unique sliding glass roof system derived from the Porsche 993. This 6-speed 2002 example came generously optioned with a black full leather interior, supple leather seats, the Advanced Technic Package, Comfort Package, Porsche Stability Management (PSM), and 18” Sport Design wheels. Having received an LN Engineering IMS bearing upgrade in 2020, this Targa is now being offered for auction with just over 30k miles showing on the odometer.
This 996 comes finished in Seal Grey Metallic and features the redesigned headlamps debuted as part of the 2002 facelift. The seller notes only a few small touch-ups on the front end and reports that the front bumper may have been refinished at some point under prior ownership. Additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The sliding glass “greenhouse” roof system simulates an open-top driving experience and features a rear glass hatch that provides access to the storage compartment. This Targa rides on factory-optioned 18” Sport Design wheel with color center crests and Michelin tires showing date codes from 2016/2017.
The premium black full leather interior includes optional supple leather front and rear seats along with the Heated Front Seats Package, Comfort Package, and Advanced Technic Package which adds Bi-Xenon headlights with washers and a 12-speaker Bose audio system. The seller notes very minimal wear on the driver's seat bolsters and adds that all gauges and accessories are functioning properly.
This 996 is powered by a naturally aspirated 3.6L flat-six engine capable of producing up to 320 HP and 273 lb.-ft of torque. Power is delivered to the rear wheels by way of a desirable 6-speed manual transmission. Porsche Stability Management (PSM) was optioned from the factory which uses sensors to electronically stabilize the vehicle in hazardous driving conditions. The seller states that an upgraded LN Engineering IMS bearing was installed in 2020 and all other available maintenance history is provided on CARFAX.
This sale will include a set of keys, owner's manuals, a spare tire, and a clean title. Quickly gaining favor among collectors and enthusiasts, this low mileage 996 Carrera Targa offers an opportunity that is not to be missed.
