2004 Porsche 911 (996) Carrera 40th Anniversary Edition 6-Speed Coupe: Made available only for the 2004 model year with just 1,963 examples to have left the factory, the 40AE remains to be an achingly special 911 variant in that it offers a delectably different driving experience that’s unlike other 911 Carreras from its era! As with all 40th Anniversary examples, this awe-inspiring 40AE is fastened in the coruscating and Carrera GT derived silver hue of GT Silver Metallic that befittingly suits the model’s exclusive cabin which hosts its signature and sumptuous Natural Grey Full Leather, the Alcantara lined roof, an instrumentation panel that’s accented by Aluminum outer-rings, its production number located just in front of the shift boot, and most notably being the GT Silver adorned center console.
Significant model native features consists of some of the following equipment: the coveted X51 Power Package (provides 345hp over the standard Carrera’s 320hp); the sport enhanced M030 suspension setup; lightweight 18-inch Carrera II wheels bearing a polished finish; a limited-slip differential; the Turbo model derived front bumper featuring air intakes painted in the model’s exterior color; GT3 side skirts; rear “911 40 Jahre” badging.
This radiant example shows an odometer reading of just 32,XXX miles and displays a Clean CARFAX Report and boasts the following featured equipment/factory-ordered options (Original $94,085 MSRP): Rear Wiper; Bose; Remote CD Changer (6 Disc); Natural Grey Floor Mat; Comfort Seats w/Pwr PKG; 40 Yr 911/Natural Grey Lthr; GT Silver Metallic; Natural Lthr Code – PAG.
The 996 911’s Specialty: With a chassis weighing in at approx. 2,9XX pounds, combined with the fewest amount of electronic driver’s aids, and a soundtrack provided by its characteristic roar channeled from its flat-six engine, supplies a driving experience that’s incredibly stimulating! The 996 effortlessly merges minimalism, modernity, along with the highly cherished mechanicalness in a package that’s now very much coveted; the steering feel, the overall way it feels, and the aesthetic appeal are phenomenal! When you sit inside, the cabin makes it known that it’s meant for motoring; the way the seats embraced its occupants, the well-positioned driver’s seat, its Carrera GT-channeled steering wheel, and the modest, non-distracting, layout of the cabin that offers great visibility and upon closer inspection, you’ll notice that the shifter and door pulls are extremely similar to those found in the road-going variant of the 911 GT1 Evo! It’s a modern minimalist offering an involving and “straight-to-the-point” driving experience that is so very sought after and the feedback that’s relayed to the driver from the road is incredibly captivating, as it’s very communicative!
