DT: 2002 Porsche 996 Turbo Coupe 6-Speed

The 996 Turbo remains one of the most desirable water-cooled 911’s to date.  Boasting 415 horsepower while offering refined, all-wheel drive handling, Car and Driver hailed the 996 Turbo’s performance as “simply intoxicating”.  This 2002 example features a 6-speed manual transmission along with a clean bill of health.  It is now being offered in excellent condition with 72k miles showing on the odometer.

Finished in factory Basalt Black metallic, this Turbo features is stated to be in excellent condition bearing only minor wear and tear including a small blemish near the front left headlight.  Detailed images are available in the photo gallery.  This example rides on factory 18” turbo twist wheels that come wrapped in a set of Giugiaro tires with plenty of tread life remaining.  Overall, this Turbo Coupe shows beautifully and is sure to turn heads.

Inside, this Turbo features a Graphite Gray full leather interior that comes equipped with a handful of desirable factory options.  This interior remains in excellent condition, only showing minor signs of wear to the rare and desirable hard back leather sports seats.  Commanding an original sticker price of over $119k, this Turbo is equipped with options such as heated front seats, metal door sills with model designation, aluminum instrument dials, carbon fiber shifter and brake handle, deviated carpeting, and an AM/FM radio with CD player.  All electronics are stated to be in excellent working order.

Originally implemented in the iconic 911 GT1 Le Mans cars, the Mezger engine has become known to many enthusiasts as the greatest water-cooled engine ever created by Porsche.  Additionally, the Mezger engine doesn’t suffer from IMS bearing related issues as its oil system ensures constant lubrication.  This 996 Turbo’s engine sends approximately 415HP to all four wheels via a crisp 6-speed manual transmission.  A few service items were recently performed including a brand new clutch, all new brakes and rotors, an oil and brake fluid service, and all new filters.  Receipts are included with the sale.  This Turbo is said to be in excellent running condition.

    @Ehrenbragg Thank You for your kind words.
    This specific 996 TT is truly exceptional given its fully stock OEM.

  • URS6 1 week, 3 daysago

    @jaynar yes. Some undercarriage photos on a northern car would be helpful.

  • jaynar 1 week, 3 daysago

    Can we see some of those receipts? Coolant lines pinned? That coolant expansion tank is on its last leg. Undercarriage photos? Clutch ever done? First thing I’d do is chuck those tires for some proper Michelin’s.

  • URS6 1 week, 3 daysago

    So it currently has winter tires on it. Any other wheels/tires come with it? Did it see a lot of snow?
