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 X50 power kit, which added a (conservative) 30+ hp.  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 in July of 2003 and sold new on September 28th, 2003 by Hoehn Motors of Carlsbad, CA.  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
  • Stainless steel tailpipes
  • Stainless steel door entry guards with logo
  • Aluminum look instrument/gauge faces
  • Gear lever knob with aluminum inlay
  • Handbrake lever with aluminum inlay
  • Heated front seats
  • 4-way electrically adjustable lumbar support, right seat
  • 4-way electrically adjustable lumbar support, right seat

The total MSRP was $144,655

The first owners lived in North San Diego County.  They kept the car 3-years/6k-miles before trading in back into the selling Porsche dealer.  The 2nd owner kept the car for 11 ½ years before selling it with just shy of 20k-miles in January of this year.  During this owner’s care, it appears all services were performed by the same selling Porsche dealer.  This includes the following:

  • 15k mile service on 03/07 @ 8k-miles
  •             Oil service
  •             Replaced rear tires
  •             Brake fluid flush
  •             Inspection
  • Major service on 11/08 @ 9k-miles
  •             Oil service
  •             Spark plugs
  •             Brake fluid flush
  •             Air and cabin filters
  •             Air bag system checked
  • Minor service on 03/16 @ 19k-miles
  •             Brake service/flush
  •             Oil service
  • Minor service on 03/18 @ 20k-miles
  •             Brake service/flush
  •             Oil service
  •             Inspection

This last service was performed by TLG Auto in North Hollywood.

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 flaws (see photos).  The glass is all original and looks great with no cracks, chips, or significant blemishes.  The wheels have no curb rash and are wrapped in near new Pirelli PZero tires.  The brakes are also at near full life.  The hydraulic rear wing operates properly.  The left rear tail light lens has two superficial cracks, which are very common among wide body 996 tail light lenses.  All the exterior lights work great.

The interior is equally as perfect with minimal signs of use as well.  The leather seats have no cracks or tears.  The bolsters look perfect.  The headliner also looks great.  The carpet and door panels have no blemishes and look new.  The dash has no cracks or shrinking of the leather.  All the gauges work properly including the interior lights, A/C, and upgraded stereo (original radio included).

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.  This is basically a near new 15-year old super car at about a third of its original cost.

California registration is current and passes CA’s strict emissions/smog test.

This turbo includes an extra key, original radio, owner’s manuals, original maintenance book, collapsible space saver spare, tools, air compressor, car cover, and jack.

This vehicle is sold “as-is” with no warranty, written or implied. In some cases, the vehicle does have the remaining factory warranty still in place and will be described above if that is the case. All taxes and fees are the responsibility of the buyer and are not included in the listed price. All vehicle sales will require a $65 document fee. The vehicle listed is described to the best of our ability. The information is based on our own research and statements made to us by the previous owner(s). To the best of our knowledge, the above information is accurate. We are not responsible for errors in our description of options or any other details. The above-mentioned vehicle is used and can be expected to show some wear and tear. It is not a brand new vehicle. We do welcome all local pre-purchase inspections on vehicles in order to verify condition.

Special Note

We appreciate the countless calls from brokers and dealers. As much as we would love to quickly “wholesale” this car to industry partners so they can make a quick profit, the car is on consignment (as are all of our offerings) and the owners have the final say.

If you have actually taken the time to read this far in our detailed description, I can’t imagine there are any questions you may have. However, if there is something I missed or you would prefer to hear the warm sound of a human voice (mine) reiterating the research I’ve provided above, I would be happy to help.

If you put our company name in Google (AutoKennel®) you will see that we have been a long-time part of the Porsche community and have worked extremely hard to earn the positive reputation you will find. Feel free to reach out to our local PCA chapter (www.pcaocr.org) and the board members are familiar with us. Most in the club have known us for most of our 25-year membership involvement. Of course, if you would like more references, you will find countless testimonials on our website as well.
