This 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera caught your eye because one of the most iconic sports cars of all time is finally priced within reach. But as you dig a little deeper, you'll find a low-mileage example that has been given the right investment for subtly adding style and power. So you won't be able to resist adding to the odometer by showing off this loaded six-speed sports machine.
Arctic Silver Metallic is a color that looks great on a German sports car. After all, it's the country's classic racing color, and it also has the premium glow you want on a precision-built machine. There was even a full respray to make sure the gloss loves to highlight the car's curves. You can tell this car has led a careful life so far. More than just the low mileage (averaging under 2,500 miles annually,) this retains a good fit and finish that comes from owners loving a true exotic. Everything looks premium, right down to the 19-inch lattice wheels. And there are just the right tasteful upgrades for added distinction, like the clear light package and tinted windows.
German cars are some of the best at ergonomics, and the 996 generation proves it the moment you sit in the contoured black leather bucket seats. This remains thoroughly modern and comfortable enough to drive every day. But this is no compromised commuter. The full package is still aimed at enthusiastic drivers, and it's everything you'd expect from one of the world's most storied marques. The leather-wrapped sports steering wheel gives a clear view of the full gauge package (the tach is the most prominent piece in these competition-inspired Porsches.) As expected from a premium Porsche, this one comes loaded. It includes features like power seats, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, cruise control, power steering, dual airbags, ABS, an AM/FM/CD changer stereo, and a power sunroof. And dual-zone automatic A/C climate control means you and your passenger get to choose your ideal comfort temperature.
Under the hood is the correct-style 3.4-liter flat-six. This fuel-injected powerhouse was rated at a healthy 296 horsepower right from the factory, but you can see there's more going on here. There was over $6k invested in motor upgrades. It includes K&N air intake, an IPD plenum intake, and an upgraded exhaust. It's the kind of added power you can feel out on the road, especially when you control it all with the desirable six-speed manual transmission. That means downshifting through your favorite corners and blipping the throttle to make sure you're in total control of the power band. It feels terrific on your favorite "secret" road thanks to features like Porsche's fully independent sports suspension, drilled four-wheel power disc brakes, and the grip of low-profile ZR-rated tires. But as much as we like talking about performance, the condition of this coupe tells you it seems more like it was used as a pleasure driver. And that's because the 996 generation was also one of the most civilized and refined Porsches to ever hit the road.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records. This is the extra powerful and loaded Porsche of your dreams. So don't let this one end up in someone else's garage. Call today!!!
