Produced for one year only, the 996 Turbo S was offered as the ultimate 911 Turbo featuring the exclusive X50 Powerkit and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) as standard equipment. This Coupe is believed to be one of less than 200 examples delivered to the U.S. with a 6-speed manual transmission and was factory optioned with rare 18” GT3 wheels. It comes finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a Graphite Grey full leather interior with optional carbon fiber inlays, a Sport Shifter, and heated seats with lumbar support. Accompanied by invoices totaling over $36k in recent service, this highly collectible 996 Turbo S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida showing just over 48k miles on the odometer.

Inside, the cabin is appointed with Graphite Grey full leather upholstery accented by optional carbon fiber and aluminum inlays for the shifter and handbrake. The front seats offer optional heating and adjustable lumbar support while standard Turbo S amenities include automatic climate control, a Bose Sound System, a 6-disc CD changer, and aluminum-look instrument dials. A few small imperfections are noted on the dashboard and the seller reports all accessories and electronics remain fully functional.
The twin-turbocharged 3.6L flat-six Mezger in the Turbo S came factory equipped with the X50 Powerkit providing an output of up to 444 HP, an increase of 25 HP over the standard 996 Turbo.
