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 introduction in 1963, 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.

First registered on the 20th March 2002 and in Blue with Grey full leather this example was also specified with optional electric tilt and slide sunroof, sound package, rear parking assistance, Porsche CDR 32, soft look leather seats in interior colour and stainless steel door sills, all adding up to £2,176 of extras on top of the £61,611 list price. Having just four former keepers, this is a low owner example which boasts a comprehensive service history and a MoT which expires in May. The 996 has long been under appreciated but we think it’s sure to be a future classic, the first water cooled 911, the only to deviate from the frog eye headlights and at this point fabulously affordable. This Tiptronic example is well maintained and presented and offered at a very attractive estimate for the Carrera 4 variant. Consignor Mathew Priddy
