The 996 model year was the most drastic update since the original 911. The all-new chassis platform and new water-cooled engine marked a complete breakaway from the original stalwarts of the 911 line. The changes weren’t just under the hood, Porsche wanted a 911 for the new millennium so design chief Harm Lagaay and his team completely re-designed the bodywork and interior. The 996 featured a much sleeker body style, a more raked windshield, completely updated interior, and generation-defining “fried egg” shaped headlamps that harked back to the legendary 1997 991 GT1 race car. The 996 was made for the ultimate cruising refinement, tombstone seats provided long-distance comfort yet hard cornering support for peak enjoyment during everyday use. However, comfort doesn’t mean the 996 is track shy thanks to a 50 kg weight loss. On top of that, the 996 had a 45% stiffer high-strength steel chassis and a lower drag coefficient than its predecessor thanks to hours spent in the wind tunnel. Planted upfront with a traction optimised rear, the 996 shone when thrown into corners. The balance between comfort and drivability meant Porsche had succeeded in designing a 911 fit for a new era.
The 996 cabriolet is a modern car with all the features and amenities but with that oh so special bit of classic character. The M96 water cooled 3.6 L flat 6 produced 320hp, a top speed of 175mph, and a 0-60 of 4.9s. Despite the new design and new engine system, the 996 Carrera stayed true to Porsche’s brand ethos and made every day driving just as fun as a hot lap at the Nürburgring (albeit a lot more comfortable). This very low miles, two owner vehicle is in unsurpassed condition. We truly believe it is the best example on the market!
