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 re-designed interior.
This very tidy example is presented in Zenith Blue with grey leather interior and comes with a full main dealership service history which is so rare with these cars. These early cars don't have fly by wire but cables which is more desirable. The last service was carried out in January 2020 at 109,913 miles and it comes with virtually all invoices and a fully stamped service book which is also extremely important and reassuring for any prospective purchaser. The car has air conditioning, satellite navigation, CD player, sports seats, six-speed gearbox, 18” wheels and comes with two sets of keys and all its original factory books. The previous owner replaced the clutch at 75,000 miles and it has been meticulously maintained and serviced throughout its life, thus it is now being presented in such great condition.
