The 996 generation of Carrera received a number of new styling cues that were carried into the other Porsche vehicles like the Cayenne and Boxster. The shape and styling of the Carrera however, is simply unmistakable. Black paint covers all the curves on this Carrera, and a matching black leather interior finishes off the dark color theme. Facelifted headlights and tail lights with clear turn signals are noticeable features, since this car was produced a bit later in the 996 generation. Inside and out, this car has been well kept and it shows. Other than the dashboard housing the familiar 5 gauges, the interior features heated seats, Porsche Radio/stereo, wind deflectors, silver center console trim, and power top. Just the right amount of creature comforts for a driver’s car like a Carrera.
Thanks to assistance from the all wheel drive system, this Carrera sticks to the road like a fly on fly paper, or like bugs on the front of your car after a spirited backroads drive on a summer evening. (A great activity in a Porsche like this one.) The 3.6L flat-6 at the rear of the car provides over 300 horsepower, and gear selection is handled through a 6 speed manual transmission. Handsome 5 spoke alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli PZero tires provide some visual interest to the classic shape of the Carrera.
Whether testing the limits of the all wheel drive system on an empty backroad, or going out to dinner on the weekend, this Cabriolet is up for the task. Versatility is one thing that Carreras are known for and this one is no different. With only 68k miles, all wheel drive, and 3 pedals, this Carrera is a prime example of an iconic car from Stuttgart.
