The 996 model is a superb car; quick, reliable, well made and the birth of the water-cooled Porsche 911. With a wide range of models on offer the most iconic is, of course, the Turbo. Featuring four-wheel drive and a 3.6 litre intercooled engine, derived from the 1998 Le Mans winning GT-1 car, pushing out 420bhp and hitting 60mph in a whisker over four seconds, this is genuine supercar territory. The 996 was seen as a more relaxed and usable 911; however, in Turbo guise, the driver would get the best of both worlds; a luxury leather interior with every creature comfort combined with the ability to drop the hammer and reach a top speed of a claimed 190mph. The 996 Turbo was available with either a six-speed manual or a five-speed Tiptronic transmission with revised styling and a wider stance than the naturally aspirated 996 Carreras along with new bi-Xenon headlamps. The Turbo also came with Variocam Plus as well as stability management - a necessity with over 400bhp under your right foot.

Performance can be described as ballistic when behind the wheel of a turbo-charged Porsche. However, due to the modern 911 being such a capable daily driver, mileage on early cars can swiftly reach into six figures, resulting in lower mileage models becoming quite the find for any collector or enthusiast.

Showing just a little over 63,000 miles on the odometer, this example is presented in grey coachwork with a black leather trim and has clearly had a pampered life. This car has been well maintained and regularly serviced. Accompanying the car is a sizeable history, documenting the low mileage and the vendors ownership, various old MoT test certificates, the V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until February 2024. This is a superb example of an ever appreciating 911 in such fabulous condition that viewing is highly recommended.
