2. Model History

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 Production To Start In 2000 And Since 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 Truly Lovely Example Was First Supplied By Stratstone Porsche In The July Of 2002 And Since This Date Of First Registration Date This Car Has Had Just The Four Registered Keepers From New, With The Last Acquiring The Vehicle In The March Of 2011, Which In The World Of Collectable Porsche Classic Cars Is Now Viewed As Being Very Low To Now Find. Over The Last Sixteen Years Chassis Number S683044 Has Only Had 42195 Miles Applied, To Which If We Break This Down Further Is Approximately Just 2700 Miles Applied Per Annum, However Regardless Of This Sensational Current Mileage Reading Our 996 Turbo Has Been Maintained To The Highest Of Standards With Past Historical Service Visits Logged At 10801, 17343, 31677, 35501, 37611, 40363, 41459 & 41877 Miles, With The Last Completed By SP Autobahn Porsche Specialist Service Centre In The April Of 2018. Once Sold This Special Example Will Be Presented For Sale With The Entire Booklet Pack Set, An A4 History File Containing An Excellent Array Of Invoices, A Fully Cleared Hpi Certificate, A Fully Functional Key Set And The Original Factory Build Card Listing All Those Expensive Factory Options To Include The Desirable X50 Package, Which Is All In Place For That Next Lucky Custodian To Keep And Cherish During Their Own Time Of Ownership.
