The Porsche 996 is the internal designation for the 911 model manufactured from 1997 to 2006. At its debut, the 996 featured the most significant change from the classic 911 series: a water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled engine. The 996 Turbo debuted at the Frankfurt Auto show in September 1999 and went on sale in the US in summer of 2000 as a 2001 model. The Turbo is powered by a water-cooled twin-turbocharged and intercooled 3.6-litre flat-6 engine derived from the 1998 Le Mans winning 911 GT1 race car. The engine is rated at 309 kW (420 PS; 414 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 415 lb⋅ft (563 N⋅m) of torque. It features an all-wheel drive system and was available with either a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed Tiptronic transmission.
This 996 Porsche 911 Turbo comes to us right on time for the approaching spring season. It sports black exterior paint as well as a black leather interior with red seatbelts. Installed early in the cars life was a Techart body kit as well as 19” Techart wheels which gives this car the very distinct, period-correct look while retaining that classic Porsche shape.
The 3.6L flat six twin-turbo engine delivers 415 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque which is transferred though a 5 speed automatic transmission and an AWD system making sure all of that power is getting onto the pavement.
