Footnotes

  • Representing a major step forward, the Type 996 version of Porsche's perennial 911, introduced in 1997, really did justify its maker's claims to be 'all new'. With the 996's introduction, Porsche finally adopted water cooling for the flat-six engine, which remained behind the rear wheels of a car that shared no panels with its immediate predecessor and was longer, wider and higher than before. Despite the overall increase in size, Porsche's engineers managed to lower the 996's drag co-efficient by raking back the windscreen, achieving a figure of 0.30 (down from the 993's 0.34) with a beneficial reduction in fuel consumption at high speeds. Bonded-in front and rear screens contributed to a significant increase in the stiffness of the aluminium chassis, which was clad in galvanised steel body panels. Water radiators were mounted at the front: two for manual transmission cars, three for those with the Tiptronic semi-automatic 'box. The new, more compact, 24-valve engine displaced 3.4 litres compared with the 993's 3.6 yet contrived to be more powerful, producing 300bhp (up from 285), which was good enough for a top speed of 174mph. Inside, the 996's new dashboard represented another major departure from tradition, being considerably more complex than anything seen hitherto in a 911, boasting a 'PCM' (Porsche Communication Management) centre console incorporating controls for the radio, air conditioning, multi-function computer, car 'phone, and satellite navigation. Four-wheel drive continued to be available on the Carrera 4 model.

    The car offered here is a rare, UK-delivered, right-hand drive example of the normally aspirated, four-wheel-drive Carrera 4S model, which shared the Turbo's chassis, brakes, and more aggressive-looking body. This example is exceptionally well specified and left the factory equipped with just about very conceivable 'extra' (full list available). Highlights include:

    Heated seats
    Rear wiper
    Top-tinted windscreen
    'Memory' seats
    BOSE sound system
    Sports exhaust system
    Turbo Look 2 18" wheels
    Six-speed manual transmission
    Electronic air conditioning
    Power steering
    Xenon lighting

    Finished in Arctic Silver metallic with black leather interior, this manual transmission model has covered only 55,384 miles from new and comes with the all-important full service history with marque specialists (seven stamps), current MoT, and a V5C document.
