Now up for auction is this 2003 Porsche 996 Carrera Coupe finished in Orient Red Metallic. This 2003 example was originally sold in California where it has remained in excellent condition throughout its entire life while accumulating just over 42k miles. Highlighting factory 18” wheels, a Graphite Grey leather interior, the Bose Sound System, and a 6-speed manual transmission, this Carrera is now being offered on behalf of its 3rd owner in Alaska, by its seller out of San Juan Bautista, CA.
The Orient Red Metallic finish is described by the seller to be original and exceptional condition. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX. Optional factory equipment includes Litronic Xenon headlamps with washers and 18” Carrera 5-spoke wheels.
Inside, this 996 features a Graphite Grey interior with optional leather upholstery on the front seats, rear seats, dashboard, and door panel inserts. Other factory specifications include 8-way power seats, the Bose Sound System, and heated front seats. Some imperfections can be seen on the driver’s seat and the seller indicates the cabin to be in otherwise superb condition with all gauges and accessories remaining fully functional including the original radio.
This Carrera is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.6 L flat-six engine rated at 320 HP and 273 lb.-ft of torque. A desirable 6-speed manual transmission drives the rear wheels while the factory optioned Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system provides refined driving dynamics. This example is said to be mechanically stock and up to date on all routine maintenance. A recent oil and filter change was carried out along with an inspection of the engine and IMS bearing which found no issues. The IMS bearing has not yet been addressed.
This sale will include a clean Alaska title. A truly well-presented example, this 996 makes an excellent choice for any discerning driver.
