When Porsche launched the 993 series in 1997, an outcry of indignation went through the ranks of the so-called "cast-iron ones", for whom fan cooling and round headlights always took priority in the 911. But with the new 911, four-valve technology with two overhead camshafts was used for the first time. And the water cooling was understandable from a technical point of view, since the range of services could be further expanded with this technology. As for the type of drive, you could choose between rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, between coupé, targa or cabriolet.

General information about the vehicle:
A Porsche 911 of the 996 series from the year 2000 is available for purchase in this auction: This is a classic Carrera, which is a Japan import and has the VIN WPOZZZ99ZYS603190. According to the seller, this Porsche has only 1 owner and the history of this sports car can be fully documented – the so-called matching numbers are also available. A new HU and a volume acceptance will of course still be taken over by the owner before the sale, so that you can drive off straight away.
On the outside, this Carrera is actually kept in classic silver, only the combination with the interior exudes extravagance. According to the seller, this Porsche 911 was never repainted – as a result, the sports car is still in its original paint. Therefore, a few signs of wear caused by use and the age of the vehicle can also be found on the exterior. For a detailed overview of the exterior condition, we refer to the series of images of the vehicle.
Original 5-spoke Porsche rims measuring 18 inches together with tires from the manufacturer Michelin from the production year 2018/2019 with dimensions of 225/40 on the front axle and 285/35 on the rear axle ensure the further visual appearance of the sports car. The seller certifies that the condition of the brakes is 50-70%; according to the current owner, no deficits can be found in the area of the chassis.
A red color can be found throughout the interior of the Porsche Coupé: the footwell carpet, the full leather seats, the door panels and the leather-covered dashboard are in this color as well as the 3-spoke leather steering wheel and the automatic selector lever as well as the handbrake lever. Electric windows, electrically adjustable seats and air conditioning are just as much a part of the range of equipment as a Pioneer display radio. More details on the scope of equipment and the condition of the interior can be found in the pictures.
6 slightly nested instruments – which are backed by white dials – provide important information in the driver's cockpit. The digital speedometer shows a mileage of 62,050 kilometres, the total mileage of the 996 convertible can be verified on the basis of a complete checkbook. All instruments in the interior prove to be fully functional.
engine The four-camshaft, six-cylinder boxer engine with water cooling generates
320 hp; it is almost completely hidden in the engine compartment. The 5-speed automatic transmission called Tiptronic ensures fast gear changes in this 996 Coupé, which can also be carried out directly on the steering wheel if you wish. The owner notes that a last service took place in 2019.
The current owner of this Porsche 911 describes the condition of the underbody as rust-free. The new 911 presented in 1997 initially triggered an outcry from the traditionalists, but of course we have known better for a long time, because Porsche had no other choice: neither the stricter exhaust gas regulations nor the demands for further increasing engine performance could be realized with air cooling. With this Porsche 996 Carrera Coupé from the year of construction 2000, the striking color combination of exterior + interior as well as the generally well-kept condition and the full service history catch the eye.
