The Porsche 996 is the internal designation for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1998 and 2005 and was subsequently replaced by the Type 997. At its debut, the 996 featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its 1963 introduction; the most significant being the water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled unit. The 996 Carrera engine (non GT and Turbo models) is designed with what Porsche calls the 'integrated dry sump oiling'. Other changes include a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a re-designed interior. The first 996's were available as a coupé or cabriolet, initially with rear wheel drive, and a 3.4 litre, flat-6 normally aspirated engine producing 296bhp.

Originally registered on 1st September 1999, this most classic of sports cars has an excellent service record with 12 stamps in the service book together with a host of receipts; the last service being carried out on 17th March, 2013 at 88,916 miles. Finished in Iris blue with grey leather trim and benefitting from a sports exhaust, this Porsche is described by the vendor as being "fabulous to drive" with no known faults. Supplied with a V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 14th March, 2014, this is a car that can be driven away from the auction with confidence.
