*Supercar performance


Offering supercar performance in a compact and practical package, the turbocharged version of the Type 996 first appeared in 2000. Boasting four-wheel drive as standard, the new 996 Turbo was a thoroughly sophisticated and competent all-weather supercar, and although it went out of production in 2005, in day-to-day driving is still as quick as anything on the road. Although the Turbo is water-cooled, its engine is not the same as that of the regular 996. The Turbo's 3.6-litre Mezger engine can trace its ancestry back to the old air-cooled units and is directly related, not only to the 996 GT3, but also the GT1 racer. This engine has proved virtually bullet-proof and the stock 420bhp can be increased to 500bhp with confidence.

The 2002 model, sometimes known as the Mark 2, also saw body revisions that increased stiffness, improving handling and crash safety. In 2002, the Turbo was offered with an 'X50' option that included larger turbochargers (K24) and inter-coolers, a revised ECU and exhaust that raised output to 450 horsepower. Other features introduced in 2002 were a glove box, centre-mounted cup holders, an optional Bose stereo, and rain-sensing wipers. Mid-range punch is the 996 Turbo's forte, and while 420bhp might not be a headline power figure today, it still feels seriously rapid. According to the vendor, the chassis and brakes are a perfect match for the engine's performance while the ride is taught but retains enough suppleness for long journeys to be completed in comfort. Both grip and traction are described as incredibly strong, promoting a feeling of supreme confidence.

This fine example is definitely one for the purists: a driver's car with no cruise control, satnav or parking sensors. The car is finished in the signature 996 Turbo Arctic Silver with black leather interior and Porsche-crested headrests. It was delivered through Porsche Centre Bournemouth on 1st November 2002 and has a full Porsche Bournemouth service history. It presents beautifully today with an indicated mileage of just over 72,000 and has been appropriately serviced annually from 22/10/2003 at 3,833 miles to 16/11/2018 at 71,880 miles (15 services in total). Brake fluid changes have been made at regular intervals, on the most recent occasion at 71,880 miles.

Few, if any, modem cars can offer supercar performance at this price level while at the same time offering Porsche's legendary dependability.
