2003 Porsche 996 Turbo

31. August, 2016

The fifth-generation 996 911 Turbo is not only the fastest-ever street-legal 911 of its era, 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.

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 beautiful two owner 996 twin turbo  wrapped in a seal gray metallic exterior and a black leather interior has been extremely well cared for and maintained. With the turbo staying in constant warranty, maintenance  and  servicing has always been properly adhered to which currently includes a new set of tires.    Having only 51458 miles on the odometer it not only looks close to the day it rolled off of the showroom floor,   it also drives and performs as well.

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 options ordered from the factory are:

* X-50 Power kit
* All wheel drive
* PSM (Porsche Stability Management)
* Full leather interior w/ front and rear seats draped leather
* Driver side memory front seat
* Anti-theft system with engine immobilizer and alarm
* Automatic climate control with dust/pollen and activated charcoal odor filters
* Bi-Xenon headlights (xenon high-intensity discharge lights for the low and high beams)
* Heated power sideview mirrors
* Heated windshield washer nozzles
* Leather-covered telescoping three-spoke steering wheel with Porsche Crest
* Metallic paint
* Key remote for opening for the luggage and engine compartment lids
* Power sunroof w/ tilt back
* Side impact airbags
* Stainless steel tail pipes
