The 996 is the internal designation for the Porsche 911 model; it was 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. Other changes included a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a re-designed interior. The performance characteristics remained superb with reliability at its core.
Originally registered in April 2003, this 996 Targa presents well in black with a grey interior. The glass Targa roof is superb design, offering, ‘wind in the hair’ motoring at the touch of a button. The specification of this Porsche includes electric front seats, traction control and C.D player. We are informed by the engineer vendor that this well-maintained car is a joy to drive and that the manual transmission is both responsive and engaging. This sleek sportscar has recently benefitted from four new tyres and a £2,658.00 service at R&D Automotive. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until January 2022, this is a splendid example of a highly desirable Porsche.
Interested parties should note that the Targa roof on this vehicle is not working.
