Renaissance Classic Sports Cars are pleased to offer our customers a fantastic example of what is perhaps the best performance-per-pound Porsche’s available on the market – the 996 911 Turbo.
Originally designed by Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche, the German engineered rear engine Porsche 911 is now one of the longest standing production models in the Automotive world. Starting production in 1963, this sports coupe has been through constant development over the years, from road cars to series winning race cars, while still managing to stay true to the initial concept and design cues. With now over 1m versions of this car being produced since its launch, it is no wonder that the Porsche 911 is so renowned with car enthusiasts and the general public alike.
The 996 is actually Porsche’s 5th generation design of the infamous series and was launched in 1998. This variation actually had very little in common with its predecessor, the car came with an entirely new chassis platform and was the first 911 to be powered by a water-cooled engine, two things that made it a complete break away from the original design. These changes allowed Porsche to create a sleeker body design, develop higher performance engines and generate better overall levels of refinement that would pave the way for future designs by the company.
This particular example is the “Turbo” variant. Powered by a twin turbo-charged flat 6 engine, derived from a race winning Le Mans 911 (Producing over 420bhp and 415lbft of torque), the 911 Turbo also received a 4wheel drive system to help put that power down smoothly. The combination of these make for incredible straight line speed without the car being a challenge to keep on the road. This car also benefits from the 5speed “Tiptronic” Automatic gearbox to allow the driver a more laid back and easy driving experience, especially in traffic, with the option of selecting gears electronically when required. This vehicle’s specification also includes:
- 3.6 flat 6 turbo-charged
- Dry sump oil system
- 4 wheel drive & differential system
- Tiptronic automatic gearbox
- Arctic Silver Metallic Paint
- 18” Turbo alloy wheels
- Electric rear spoiler
