The Porsche 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. The performance characteristics remained superb with reliability at its core.
This fine Carrera 4 996 has been cherished during the vendor's ownership and indeed, going further back, the accompanying history file shows various maintenance completed. Recently treated to an extensive respray, full service, new lamber sensors, exhaust hangers and manifolds and a reconditioned gearbox. The history file also includes the most recent MoT test certificate valid until January 2022, the current UK V5C registration document and many other sundry invoices. Enormous fun and well looked after, this Carrera 4 represents great value.
