|🇩🇪 76689 Karlsdorf
The new 911 of the 996 series presented in 1997 was available in the body variants Coupé and Targa up to the chicly styled Cabriolet. For the first time in the 996 Convertible, the two-layer electrically operated soft top disappears under a flap. A novelty, because until then every open elfer wore its folded roof like a neck roll under a tarpaulin, which still had to be buttoned. Porsche also continued to focus on safety: in an emergency, the convertible automatically activates rollover protection, and the 996 series was also a pioneer in the use of side airbags in convertibles. Finally, the Class 996 was built until 2006.
In this auction, a Porsche 996 Cabriolet from the year of construction 2003 can be purchased: According to the seller, this Porsche with the FIN WP0CA29922S650768 has a total of 4 holders. Although a checkbook can no longer be presented and the current owner is not sure about the matching numbers, the mileage of this convertible can be traced via various available documents and the matching numbers are assumed. Until June 2024, the last main inspection of this 911 is valid.
The body of the convertible is truly extroverted: the paint dress in a red shade is inconspicuous in terms of damage, the gap dimensions are even and the current owner lets it be noted that the Porsche is accident-free. External modifications are not discernible, a repainting in a specialist workshop in 2020 after the import took place according to the owner. The rear bumper had to be replaced by a German model with a large license plate for German registration. The black soft top of this convertible is crack-free. All plastic attachments are preserved in good condition on the trolley.
Porsche alloy wheels in multi-spoke design are mounted on the Porsche in used condition together with tires, which have a condition of 70-90%. The condition of the brakes can also be classified by the seller in the range of 70-90% (the front brakes were recently replaced), the chassis is in a modification-free state of preservation.
Classic black leather can be found in the interior of the Porsche 996 Convertible: The current owner mentions that there is a small hole in the rear right seat shell, but the interior can be found in a well-preserved condition corresponding to the mileage except for this defect. On the sun visors, the covers for the interior mirrors have been removed by the previous owner. It is also worth mentioning that the soft top hydraulics work, but according to the seller needs some oil. On board this Porsche 996 Cabriolet are the following features: power steering, central locking, electric windows, heated seats, ABS, air conditioning, cruise control and a Porsche original radio.
6 slightly nested instruments contain important information in the driver's cockpit. The digital speedometer shows a read mileage of 159,000 kilometers, the total mileage of the 996 Convertible is not verifiable due to the missing checkbook, but the mileage can be described as credible at the sight of the body condition and with regard to the technical condition. Since the speedometer is still original, the analog instruments are still available as mileage display, the digital speedometer has been converted to KM After consultation with the current owner, all buttons, switches and levers are working properly.
The four-camshaft six-cylinder boxer engine with water cooling generates 320 hp, in the engine compartment it remains visually almost hidden. The gears of the 911 are engaged via a manual 6-speed manual transmission, a final service took place in 2020, according to the owner. The following were installed as new parts in this Porsche: clutch, IMS bearing, shaft seal, oil separator, air conditioning compressor, starter, generator, belts and rollers as well as spark plugs and ignition coils.
According to the seller, there are no inconsistencies on the underbody, the condition on the underside of the Porsche 996 Cabriolet presents itself according to the age without corrosion. Although the 996 caused an outcry from the traditionalists at its presentation, we have of course known better for a long time, because Porsche had no other choice: air-cooled, neither the stricter exhaust gas regulations nor the demands for further increasing engine performance could be realized. With this Porsche 996 Convertible offered for auction here, you can secure a future classic in a beautiful color combination and good technical and optical condition. In addition to the red paint color, the multi-spoke rims are also striking: These provide an even sportier appearance of the car.
