2003 Porsche 996 Turbo ***SOLD***

14. May, 2016

The fifth-generation 996 911 Turbo is not only the fastest-ever street-legal 911, it’s also the most refined. Spooling up to 125 miles an hour — on the German autobahn, of course — is utterly effortless in this all-wheel-drive sports car. And the urge to push the needle deeper, to tap into its extraordinary acceleration, is very difficult to resist.

Traveling at the speed of three miles a minute is not to be recommended if you want to hang on to your driver’s license. But that velocity is so gracefully achieved that you’re always looking for any suitable stretch of blacktop. The 911 Turbo’s performance is simply intoxicating.

Visually, the Turbo is easily the most radical of the 996-generation 911s. The wheel arches are swollen by 2.6 inches, a bi-wing is created by an active rear spoiler that rises 2.4 inches when the car reaches 75 mph (contributing to downforce), and aggressive  air-inlet vents in the rear fenders feed air to the intercoolers. Vents situated behind the rear wheels, adding to the Turbo’s meaner, more squared-off appearance.  The nose is rounder and longer to accommodate a third radiator behind the larger air intakes. These changes reportedly increase cooling capacity by 50 percent. The headlights, unique to the Turbo, arch down into the bumper and utilize xenon illumination for high- and low-beam lighting. Porsche says the extra scoops, vents, and wings only bring the drag coefficient up 0.02 to 0.32 relative to the standard 911 Carrera.

The X-50 Powerkit increases the 911 Turbo’s engine performance from 420 hp at 5,000 rpm to 450 hp at 5,700 rpm. The maximum torque is now available at 3,500 to 4,400 rpm. The maximum torque value of 560 Nm, already offered by the series engine at between 2,700 and 4,600 rpm, is available in the power-enhanced 911 Turbo at between 2,700 and 5,600 rpm. So its power can be called upon in an extremely wide range of revs. An estimated acceleration speed of 0 to 60 is 4.2 seconds.

This gorgeous 996 twin turbo with only 39744 miles on the odometer is wrapped in a basalt black exterior along with a black full leather interior. It has been meticulously cared for at Hi Tec Automotive and is a two owner car. It has just received a major service after being inspected from our Porsche factory trained technician, and is ready to be enjoyed by its next caretaker.

It was ordered new from the factory with the highly desirable X-50 Power Package along with a Tiptronic S transmission. With the combination of the X-50 package mated to the Tiptronic S transmission, going for a day trip down to Monterey with the Tip in drive mode feels relaxed, effortless and smooth. Going for a spirited drive along the coast, one only has to push the shifter into the M position and now full manual shifting is achieved with the driver either upshifting or down shifting manually from the + or – buttons on the steering wheel.

Some of the features are,

X-50 Package
All wheel drive
PSM (Porsche Stability Management)

Heated front seats w/ driver side memory
