2004 Porsche 911 (996) Turbo Cabriolet X50 for sale!

The 996 was a revolutionary car for Porsche and showcased a new first for the 911, the water cooled flat six era. The 996 is a car that can be daily driven, it is comfortable and refined. Gone are the hot oil smells, rough idling, and finicky air cooled quirks that so many Porsche fans were used to and may have caused many buyers to shy away from he brand. The 996 would appeal to a whole new demographic of sports car buyer and as a result many different models were offered that would please the most die hard petrolhead as well as just plain ordinary enthusiasts whom liked European styled and engineered cars. Porsche launched the all new 911Turbo to the world in 2000 and the motoring press was dumbfounded with how good it was in every detail, performance, luxury, comfort, and technology. The old saying of the “widow maker” will not apply here, the 996 Turbo is a 400 horsepower tour de force yet is an easy car to drive, exceptionally fast, and has the road handling confidence of all wheel drive. It is just as enjoyable for running to the grocery store and shopping mall as it is on the track or long road trip. One of the best all round sports cars of last 20 years, the Turbo is now gaining traction as a modern collectable.
