Porsche 996 Turbo 2001 Model For Sale
Now many 996 Turbo models are in the country right now.
The Porsche 996, which rolled off the assembly line from 1997 to 2005, represented a major turning point in the history of the 911. It retained all the character of its classic heritage, but was an entirely new car from ground up.
This comprehensively redesigned generation was the first to be driven by a water-cooled boxer engine. For many Porsche die-hard enthusiast, it was a wrong move, but this new water-cooled Porsche slowly convinced almost all of them to switch over at some point.
With its four-valve cylinder heads it achieved 300bhp and produced much less emissions, engine noise while improving the fuel consumption. The exterior design was a reinterpretation of the 911’s classic line, but with a lower drag coefficient of just 0.30.
The lines of the 996 were also a result of component sharing with Porsche’s successful first ever Boxster model. Its most obvious exterior feature were the headlights with integrated turn signals, which was at first controversial but later copied by many other car manufacturers.
Step inside and drivers experienced an entirely new and communicative cockpit. Driving comfort now also played a greater role alongside the typical sporty characteristics. With the 996 model, Porsche introduced a number of variants and brought to market a true rival to Italian supercars at the time.
The 911 GT3 became one of the highlights of the model range in 1999, keeping the tradition of the Carrera RS alive. The 911 GT2, the first car equipped with ceramic brakes as standard, was marketed as an extreme sports vehicle starting in the later half of 2000.
Meanwhile the starter Porsche 996 is a refined grand tourer and the Turbo version like this unit for sale, which offers 0-60mph acceleration time in just four seconds and a 190mph top speed is the 996 to own. Having said that, all 911s provide mind-blowing performance and sublime handling.
The 996 Turbo remains among the most desirable sports cars on the used market today. Evergreen stylish design plus excellent handling and build quality all add up to make the Porsche one of the slowest-depreciating models you can buy.
Used Turbo versions are hard to come by. The Targa versions are less popular than convertibles or coupés, so they are much cheaper, but not necessarily better. The more desirable 996 Turbo is slowly rising in value.
Remember, this 996 Turbo is holding its used value against other Porsche models like the Panamera sports sedan and Cayenne SUV. It is also fuel-efficient given its sensational performance, and servicing this supercar is almost on par with a BMW sedan.
Registered and Manufactured in 2001, this is a ‘Kereta Import Baru’ which increases its value. The engine is a 3.6 Liter Turbo-Charged Flat Six Water Cooled unit paired with 5-speed Tiptronic Gearbox.
