Presented in its traditional German colour combination, our Turbo was an entrant for Porsche Centre West London in the Porsche Restoration Competition 2014, and consequently is presented in truly wonderful condition. The parts invoice alone during the restoration runs to 15 pages and totalled an amazing £12,356 at Porsche’s internal rates! It must be amongst the very best prepared examples of a 996 Turbo to be found anywhere.
The Porsche 996 Turbo was the 6th incarnation of the famous 911 Turbo. Very few 996 Turbos were sold with manual gearboxes, so these have become the of the true modern sports classics, and are very much a collectable with a bright future.
The fact that the 996 Turbo came with four-wheel drive and Porsche’s Stability Management as standard meant that it was also capable of delivering the most sophisticated, safest Porsche 911 driving experience yet. The 996 Turbo had a 3,600cc engine, with twin turbochargers, and was water cooled, which brought power up to a staggering 420 BHP, making the production car capable of 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. The 911 Turbo also had the most powerful braking system ever fitted to a production car. The system, designed to withstand extreme punishment, featured four-piston monobloc aluminium fixed calliper brakes with 330 mm cross drilled internally vented discs, four channel ABS and a 10" vacuum brake booster. Braking from 60 to 0 mph took just 2.4 seconds!
The 996 Turbo prompted BBC TV’s Jeremy Clarkson to comment at the time, “It hurts me to say this, but of all the cars you can buy today, this is the best.” Compared with the previous 993 Turbo model, the 996 represented a virtual redesign. Cosmetically, it moved Porsche on in many significant ways: the lines were smoothed out, the windscreen was raked back, the cabin was roomier and the facia finally looked like it had been styled. The structure managed the neat trick of being 45 per cent stiffer yet lighter than the older model. The chassis and brakes are a perfect match for the engine’s performance.
This example of a rare manual 996 Turbo Coupe was originally supplied by Porsche Centre Guildford in April 2003. The service book demonstrates that it was only used very sparingly, before its restoration at PC West London. The Turbo will also be supplied with a new 12-month MOT, and 12-month warranty.
