The 996 is the internal designation for the Porsche 911 model, manufactured and sold between 1998 and 2005. 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. Progressively stringent noise regulations, environmental concerns, a higher expectation for refinement and a high performance, four valve per cylinder engine made the switch necessary. Other changes included a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a redesigned interior.
Originally registered on 16th March 2001, this Porsche presents in very good order and is described by the vendor as driving well with no known faults. The blue coachwork is virtually unmarked as is the tan leather interior. The vendor has had new brake discs and pads fitted all round together with a new battery and a service. These Porsches offer a superb driving experience particularly when mated to the Tiptronic gearbox as this one is. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 4th October 2020 together with some service history. Realistically estimated and ready to drive immediately.
