2001 Porsche 996 TURBO Manual | 820K HKD



996 is the internal designation for the 911 model manufactured by Porsche between 1997 and 2006.

The Porsche 996 had little in common with its predecessor, and was the first all-new chassis platform since the launch of the first 911, as well as introducing a water-cooled engine for the first time. Technically it was a very big and innovative change from the original 911 design.


In terms of design, a lot has also changed, with the main changes being a slimmer body, with a steeper windshield and “starred egg” headlamps, so called due to the integrated amber turn signals, instead of the more vertical «beetle-type» headlamps. Also the interior has been completely redesigned.


Turbo versions of the 996 were unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1999. They use a 3.6-litre, water-cooled turbo-charged flat-6 engine derived from the one used in the Porsche 911 GT1 that won the Le Mans 24h in 1998. With 420 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 563 N⋅m of torque, four-wheel drive and, in this case, with the traditional 6-speed manual gearbox.


The Porsche 996 Turbo offered here was delivered on 24.04.2001 to its first owner by Hong Kong Jebsen Porsche dealer. For the next 20 years the vehicle was well cared for and that's why this 996 Turbo presents itself even today in a visually as well as technically pristine condition.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:


Whooosh! That very moment when you catch your breath after the Turbo charger(s) kick-in, is the hallmark of a 911 Turbo. When the boost pressure builds up and the air is pressed into the six combustion chambers, the world seems to stand still for a moment. That was the first time 911 Turbo from 1974 - and still is today.


There are no exceptions. Not even with the Porsche 996 Turbo, which was built from 2000 to 2006. With the 996, Porsche put everything on one card: The fifth generation of the sports car classic was radically new - and for the first time relied on water cooling instead of the previously staunchly defended air cooling. That's why the 996 had to prove itself from the start in order to convince even skeptics. Porsche finally got rid of the last doubts with the turbo: 420 hp from 3.6 liters Displacement with double turbocharging caused a stir at the time. With the factory performance increase (WLS), the engine even achieved 450 hp.


The engine is based on the design of the legendary Hans Mezger, who played a key role in the construction of the first 911 Turbo. Even today, people still talk about the "Mezger engine", which was used in the turbo and GT models up to the 997 model series. The engine is characterized by its two-piece aluminum crankcase. In contrast to other constructions, this allows a perfect oil supply even with high lateral acceleration and is therefore particularly well suited for use on the race track. In addition, the engine is extremely durable and reliable - which it proved in a slightly modified form with a double victory in the 1998 24 Hours of Le Mans. The 996 Turbo still impresses today: the bi-turbo sends 560 Nm of torque to all four wheels. That still feels brawny even in a world of high-torque diesels and powerful e-cars. Accompanied by the typical whooshing sound that characterizes a charged 911. So the 911 Turbo of the 996 generation has what it takes to become a classic. It is an important model in the company's history, the technology has written racing history and the Turbo, with a total of around 22,000 vehicles produced, is significantly rarer than the Carrera models, of which more than 150,000 were produced.
