- Comprehensive history
On its debut, the 996 featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its 1963 introduction, namely the water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled unit. Other changes included a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a redesigned interior. The performance characteristics remained superb with reliability at its core.
This lovely one owner from new 996 Carrera 2 is presented in metallic Iris Blue with dark grey leather interior. When purchased by our vendor in July 1999 he specified extras such as 22 inch alloy wheels, a three spoke sports steering wheel, 10 speaker audio upgrade and tracker system. Throughout his ownership we are informed the car has been garaged and serviced comprehensively when required. 996 Porsche 911's are not only iconic cars but equally comfortable around town or stretching their legs on the autobahn. This one owner example is attractively priced and well cared for and, with an MoT until November. Viewing is highly recommended.
