Automotive journalists have touted the Porsche 996 Turbo as one of the most drivable super cars on the road.  Its performance numbers are incredible.  Yet, its ease of use make it a great daily driver option.  Talking with countless Porsche mechanics, they all agree that these Turbos are among the most reliable motors (the famous Mezger engine) that Porsche has ever built.  A handful of these Turbos came optioned with the Turbo S package, which include the X50 power kit and PCCB ceramic composite brakes.  The X50 package was an $18k option, which produces 444hp/457lb ft. torque.  0-62mph time is 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 193mph.  This package includes upgraded turbo chargers, air intake cooler, electronic control unit, exhaust system and a strengthened transmission.

This Porsche was built on September 25th, 2003 and sold new on October 31st, 2003 by Barrier Porsche of Bellevue, Washington.  Although the Turbo models come very well equipped with many standard items that are usually options, this particular example was further ordered with the following:

  • X50 Turbo power kit
  • PCCB ceramic composit brakes
  • Black floor mats with Porsche lettering
  • Aluminum look instrument/gauge faces
  • Stainless steel door entry guards with logo
  • Stainless steel tailpipes
  • Wheel caps with colored crests
  • Lumbar support right and left seats
  • Supple leather front and rear
  • Aluminum look package (large)
  • Porsche crest in headrests
  • Heated front seats
  • Brake and shifter in carbon/aluminum

The total MSRP was $164,585

The first owner lived in the Los Angeles area and kept the car for nearly 9-years/8k-miles.  During this owner’s care, it was serviced at the local Porsche dealer.  It was then sold in August of 2012 to a local Orange County enthusiast who kept it for 2-years/1k-miles before it was sold to the current Orange County owner by Newport Beach Porsche  in December of 2014. The selling dealer performed a 100+ point inspection and fluid flush.  For the last 4-years/1,500-miles, this owner has primarily used this Turbo as a weekend local cruiser.  Highlights of services and upgrades over the life include:

  • Regular and frequent oil services/fluid flushes
  • Max Speed performance exhaust with headers installed
  • Aluminum performance pedals (3)
  • Updated Nav CD
  • New front lower chin spoiler
  • KW V3 coil over suspension system for 996TT
  • Alignment
  • GMG WC 3-way sway bars with new bushings (front and rear)
  • GMG adjustable thrust arm bushings (front)
  • Front and rear wheel spacers with new wheel bolts
  • New Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires
  • GIAC software tune
  • Powdercoated factory 997 Turbo wheels
  • New factory key with remote
  • Cilajet aviation grade automotive sealant

In total, nearly $20k of tasteful upgrades were installed on this X50 Turbo.

Although this Turbo was not driven a lot, it was obviously well cared for and regularly serviced.  Of course, it was always garaged and never abused.  The exterior looks stunning and near new.  The paint is all original and verified with a paint meter (see pics).  There are minimal if any signs of use.  The glass looks great with no cracks, chips, or significant blemishes.  The wheels have no curb rash and are wrapped in near new Michelin tires.  The ceramic brakes show no signs of use.  The soft top is perfect with no creases or tears.  It has rarely been used.  All the exterior lights work great and the lenses are perfect.  The hydraulic rear wing operates properly.

The interior is equally as perfect with minimal signs of use as well.  The supple leather seats have no cracks or tears.  The bolsters look perfect.  The headliner of the soft top also looks great.  The carpet and door panels have no blemishes.  The dash has no cracks or shrinking of the leather.  All the gauges work properly including the interior lights, A/C, and stereo.  The full power top goes up and down smoothly with a touch of a button.

This X50 Turbo drives fantastic.  It accelerates smoothly with zero effort.  The transmission shifts with ease and there is no slipping or issues with 2nd gear pop-out.  The brakes are tremendous and not only have retina detaching stopping power, but they seem to never show signs of use and leave zero brake dust.  This is basically a near new 15-year old super car at about a third of its original cost.

California registration is paid through April of 2019.

This turbo includes an extra key, owner’s manuals, collapsible space saver spare, software program tool, original NAV cds, wind deflector, tools, air compressor, car cover, and jack.
