The paint is described to be original and some minor rock chips are noted on the front, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. This 996 rides on factory 18” Turbo Twist wheels that remain dressed in their original Pirelli P-Zero tires.
Inside, this Turbo has been appointed with a premium Savanna Beige full leather interior featuring heated Sport Seats with Porsche crested headrests. The optional Design Package (P78) also includes stainless door sill plates with model logos, aluminum-look instrument dials, and leather shifter/handbrake levers with aluminum inlays. The driver is also supplied with automatic climate control, a Bose sound system, and an AM/FM radio with a CD player as well as a remote 6-disc CD changer.
The race-derived 3.6L twin-turbocharged Mezger flat-six engine generates up to 415 HP which is distributed among all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The car is said to have undergone nearly all routine service through an authorized Porsche dealership with records dating back to the original purchase.
This sale will include a set of two keys, owner’s manuals, service records, and valid Canadian registration. Presented in a desirable color combination and generously equipped from the factory, this 6-speed Turbo is not to be overlooked.
