Is the 996 Turbo finally cool enough to be a natural member of the rest of 911 Turbo generation ?

It seems that it’s time has come. More and more are out from long term storages, driving again. It really seems like the 996 Turbo generation is finally getting some well deserved air under its wings.

The 996 Turbo has been sent into the nook of shame for something like a decade. The explanations could be many, but its Spiegelei / Fried egg headlights and the, then, new interior with a Star Wars hit designed instruments, plus a softer ‘swung’ in cabin interior, have probably been too “challenging” for a part of the steady 911 clientele.

On the other hand all 911 enthusiast had no issues with the engine…

The vehicle in detail

Therefore, let’s start of with the engine of a 996 Turbo. It’s the first generation of a 3.6 liter Mezger boxer with a turbo, that together with exhaust system and the soft Mezger engine, sounds, hisses, rumbles and drives excellently.

The engine is also the first water-cooled Turbo engine and ditto the first Porsche engine, where emissions were considered and combined with efficiency and therefore Hans Mezger had a 4-valve cylinder pistonhead made so “you” now had an engine, that pushed 420 HP into the ground, went further per liter of fuel, and exhaled a bit of nicer air.

The gearbox is so easy to operate – and the steering, brakes and balance in the car are ditto a lesson in the fact, that Porsche AG really wanted this 911 Turbo generation at the turn of the Millenium to be a great runner.

This exact 996 Turbo has a complete ownership history. Just two owners since new and now just 42,000 kilometers on the counter.

First owner in Stuttgart for three years and then in a Danish family from 2005 until today. Most of the years, the car lived in a closed garage in a holiday home in the south of France.

In addition to the car’s condition being unique due to its living conditions, it has always been serviced at authorized Porsche workshops and is delivered to the future owner with a large service from Porsche Copenhagen.

The composition of the car is stylish with its Basalt schwarz exterior and matching cabin with extended leather options on i.a. steering wheel airbag, speaker modules and instrument panel – discreet, original options. And if you are a little surprised by the rims, here’s the explanation. The rims are not regular for the 996 Turbo. These SportTechno rims were produced for Porsche by legendary BBS and are a hollow spoke alloy wheel that weighs less than the regular Turbo rim. On this 996 Turbo even delivered ab werk in a two-tone color scheme that matches the rest of the Basalt paintwork – and which undeniably leads to a tribute to the classic Fuchs.

 

Most 911 enthusiasts agree on, that any 911 Turbo model type has a fierce stroke of genius in its power outlet and design. Its nature has proven long lasting and continuously delivering deeply entertaining driving characteristics.

 

The 996 Turbo will always be its own part of Porsche 911 Turbo history, but If you ask us, the 996 Turbo is a driver’s car belonging and fitting right into the 911 Turbo family generation over time.
