Lot details

Registration No: T.B.A
Chassis No: WP0ZZZ99Z2S682072
MOT: April 2024

  • Desirable UK-supplied 'C16' example with manual transmission
  • Warranted 60,000 miles from new with documented service history (principally main dealer)
  • Last main dealer service at 59,434 miles and since treated to all new radiators

Introduced in 1999, the 996-generation of Porsche's evergreen 911 was styled by Pinky Lai. Boasting a monocoque bodyshell that was some forty-five percent stiffer yet lighter than that of its predecessor, the newcomer also boasted improved aerodynamics and a more ergonomic interior. Perhaps best known for its switch from air- to water-cooling, the standard 996 had some well publicised engine woes. The exception to the rule was the Turbo variant which used an evolution of the Le Mans-winning (and nigh-on bombproof) Mezger flat-six. Displacing some 3.6 litres when fitted to the 996 Turbo, this fearsome powerplant developed a quoted 414bhp and 413lbft of torque. Allied to either six-speed manual or five-speed Tiptronic transmission, it reputedly enabled the 2+2-seater to accelerate from 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds and on to 189mph. With four-wheel drive, Porsche Stability Management and brutally effective four-wheel ABS disc brakes, the flagship 911 was among the very fastest `A-to-B' cars that money could buy. An altogether more brutish looking machine than its normally aspirated siblings, the 996 Turbo sported gaping air intakes to its front bumper, bi-xenon headlights, flared rear wheel arches, 18in alloys and a jutting rear spoiler.

Finished in the striking combination of Polar Silver Metallic with Dark Blue Metropole leather upholstery, chassis 682072 was supplied new by AFN Chiswick. Specified with hardback sports seats, extended leather and upper centre console delete, the 2+2-seater is accompanied by its original book pack and a large ring binder of invoices and receipts. Main dealer serviced for most of its life, the relevant booklet shows stamps at 8,446, 13,119, 21,015, 26,283, 36,476, 38,127, 39,910, 41,389, 42,953, 45,294, 46,703, 50,505, 57,361 and 59,434 miles. Starting readily upon inspection and sounding throatier than standard thanks to the installation of a Top Gear stainless steel exhaust system, the 996 Turbo rides on N-rated tyres all-round (another signs of conscientious maintenance). Fitted with the preferred and more engaging six-speed manual gearbox, the most recent invoice on file details the replacement of all three coolant radiators and both air conditioning system condensors by OCD Porsche Specialists on 11th May 2023, at a cost of £3,098.73. Warranted to have covered a modest 60,000 miles from new, chassis 682072 is as presentable as the photos suggest and a credit to the vendor and his predecessors.

Interest in the 996-series has hit new heights this year with the sale of the unique Classic Club Coupe last month for a headline grabbing $1.2 million. Still a phenomenally fast car and usefully more compact than its 992 equivalent, a well-sorted, manual transmission 996 Turbo is a supercar to savour. Offered for sale with extensive history file and a ‘no advisories’ MOT certificate valid until April 2024.
