2003 Porsche 911 Turbo (996)
Desirable variant with factory Aero kit, embossed seats; auto/tip 'box with rare steering wheel mounted paddles; subject to Porsche's '09991' bespoke programe and showing just 60,400 miles
Supplied new in April 2003 by Rivervale Porsche of Brighton, this attractive 996 series 911 Turbo features the extremely potent water-cooled 3.6 litre flat-six twin turbocharged and inter-cooled engine, developing in standard form 414bhp and 563Nm of torque. Performance is phenomenal as you may imagine, particularly given the Turbo’s are all-wheel drive with 60mph hit in just 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 190mph.
This smart example is finished in Basalt Black (LC9Z) with matching black interior (AH) and features a well optioned specification including the desirable factory turbo aero kit (XAF), Alu-look dashboard trim strip (XCA), Alu-look instrument surround (XCB), alu-look side air vents (XCC), alu-look centre air vent (XCD), Porsche crest embossed headrests (XSC), alu-look door panel parts (XTR), leather covered ignition block surround (XJ4), leather defroster trim (XV1), leather edged floor mats with Porsche script (XX1), aluminium tiptronic gear lever (X46), stainless steel tailpipes (X54), stainless door guards with Porsche script (X70), alu-look instrument faces (X71).
This example’s spec also includes the option ‘09991’ which means the car came off the production line for the ‘Sonderwunsch Programm’, now called ‘Exclusive’ for some bespoke touches – usually relating to interior trim, but here it looks to be fitment of paddles to the steering wheel for paddle gear changes – not usually found on the 996 – the tiptronic control is usually button controlled from the face of the steering wheel – this car has one paddle on each side – unusual and highly desirable.
As a Turbo model, the spec also included digital climate control with A/C, sunroof, Bose sound system, hollow spoke lightweight alloy wheels, integrated navigation and stereo system, trip computer, electric seats with driver’s memory, PSM (Porsche stability management) to name but a few features. The rear seat squabs have been deleted to save weight and give greater storage space.
The car has covered just 60,463 miles, which is low for this most usable of super cars and is backed up by a stamped service book revealing 13 service stamps, 11 of which are Porsche main agents, the other 2 by well known marque specialists. The last stamped service was I November 2016 at 57,535 miles by Porsche of Portsmouth with a further 7 stamps by Porsche dealers for brake fluid changes, the last also by Porsche Portsmouth in 2018 at 58,285 miles and 4 further stamps for Long-life guarantee condition reports plus 3 further stamps for airbag checks.
The file also includes the owner’s pack with manuals, 2 keys, the V5C showing 6 former keepers, 1 old MOT and current MOT valid until November 2021 with no advisories recorded.
An extremely fast and desirable car in the right colour with extensive and unusual options fitted – driven some 100 miles to the sale - one for the collector or Porsche fan for sure.
