At The Cars Debut, The 996 Featured The Most Significant Change From The Classic 911 Series, This Was The Controversial Water Cooled Engine, Which Replaced The Previously Air Cooled Unit. The 996 Turbo Was Introduced At The Frankfurt Motor Show In September 1999, With The Production To Start In 2000 And Since This Point A True Legend Was Born. The Then New 996 Turbo Offered Genuine Supercar Performance In A Compact, But Surprisingly Practical Package And Unlike The Early Infamous Turbo 911`s, The 996 Version Became A Different Sort Of Animal, With Four Wheel Drive, A Smooth New Body Shell And A Radical Updated Cabin. Powerful Sophistication Was Porsche`s Main Goal. The 996 Turbo, Like All The Other 911 Turbo Cars Of The Past, Have Instantly Fallen Into The Collectable Classic Porsche Title. With A New Breed Of Enthusiast Owners Wanting To Own Their Very Own Piece Of Stuttgart Motoring History And With The Dramatic Climb Of The 993 Turbo Values, Who Can Blame Them On Jumping Aboard That Happy Band Wagon. The Power Offered From The Trouble Free Mezger Engine Is Astonishing And Even With The Age Of This Model, It Can Still Delight And Exhilarate. Porsche Also Offered The Option Of The X50 Performance Package, However At The Time Of Build This Was Hugely Expensive, With Many Clients Not Thinking That The Extra Brake Horse Power Increase To 450 BHP Could Be Justified. Today This Rare Option Is Highly Attractive, With Many Collectors Wanting This As Part Of Their Investment, But Numbers Are Few And Far Between. This Very Rare Factory Performance Option Gave The 996 Turbo Super Car Status And With This Additional BHP Meant That The Car Would Easily Accelerate Both Driver And Three Passengers From 0-62 MHP In An Astonishing 3.6 Seconds, Would Further Climb To A Top Speed Of 192 MPH, With All This Remarkable Speed Fully Controlled By The Permanent Four Wheel Drive System, Fitted As Standard. If We Fast Forward To 2018, The Porsche 996 Turbo X50 Is A Highly Desirable Model, With Many Collectors Trying To Source Perfect Presented Low Mileage Examples, With The Scope For Further Future Values To Climb In An Aggressive Quick Succession, As Numbers Today Are Few And Far Between And We Firmly Believe That This Will Be Viewed As An Excellent Proposition For Any New Or Established Collectable Vehicle Collection, Either In The UK Or Around The World.
This Lovely Modern Day Classic Porsche Was First Supplied By Stratstone Wilmslow Porsche In The May Of 2002 And Since This First Registration Date Our Marvellous Example Has Only Changed Hands The Five Times, Which In The World Of Porsche Is Still Viewed As Being Low To Find, With The Last Person Acquiring Chassis Number S682460 In The November Of 2013. Over The Last Fourteen Plus Years Our X50 Package 996 Has Only Covered Just 34399 Miles, Which Over These Years Roughly Works Out At About 2500 Miles Per Annum, However Regardless Of This Sensational Mileage Reading It Has Had The Following Maintenance Visits Logged At 2520, 4739, 10730, 16000, 24833, 29903, 32724 & 34389 Miles, With The Very Last Being A Full Major Service, With Spark Plug Renewal, Brake Fluid Changes And A Full Brand New Set On Branded Pirelli P Zero Tyres, All Completed In The January Of 2018 By Porsche Sheffield.
