2004 Porsche 911 (996) Turbo Cabriolet
This 2004 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet (996) is a low-kilometre, two-owner example of Porsche’s 996-generation 911, and features a unique hard top. Under the rear decklid you’ll find a twin-turbocharged 3.6-litre flat-six-cylinder engine which develops 309kW/563Nm. This power is sent to all four wheels through a five-speed Tiptronic gearbox. This example currently displays 38,915km on its odometer since new.
The Turbo badge is a long-running Porsche nameplate which signifies the ultimate iteration of 911, aside from the GT-fettled cars. The flagship model grade was first introduced as the 930 Turbo where it was also offered in Cabriolet body style. It took Porsche another three generations of 911 to next develop another Turbo Cabriolet, with the 996 generation. The 996 Turbo’s powertrain was derived from the 1998 Le Mans-winning 911 GT1 race car and allowed the Turbo Cabriolet to run from zero to 100km/h in under five seconds. The Turbo body features revised styling and a wider stance compared to normal 996 variants. It also came fitted with an electronically-adjustable rear spoiler which rises and falls depending on speed. Fitting a hard-top roof was a popular modification in-period, which this car has.
This car’s subdued look pairs Basalt Black-painted bodywork with a beige-coloured interior. There have been no notable aftermarket modifications made to this car and it currently presents in its as-delivered specification. The car does have a hard-top roof fitted, as well as its full functioning soft-top contraption. It currently rides on a set of 18-inch ‘Turbo Twist’ alloy Porsche wheels, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.
Manufactured new in Stuttgart, Germany, this car landed in Australia to be complied in July 2005 and was delivered by Porsche Centre Willoughby. The first owner traded it on a Ferrari in 2013, whereby the current seller picked it up from Ferrari Maserati Sydney. Initial services were carried out by Porsche outlets, where it was then serviced by SVS Autocare Porsche specialists under its current ownership. The last service was completed by SVS Autocare in 2017 and it has travelled 1,00km since.
Exterior condition is very good overall and is considered commensurate with this car’s low mileage. The Basalt Black metallic paint still shines nicely in the right light, while no marks of accident damage are seen on the car’s body panels. Spots of minor stone chipping and scratching are seen on the front bumper and lower splitter. The gas struts holding the bonnet need re-gassing. There is a small dent above the driver’s door handle. The wheels appear without curb rash aside from one wheel, while the tyres retain a decent amount of tread.
Interior-wise this 911 Turbo has fared well over its lifetime, with limited wear and tear observed. The beige leather upholstery shows in good condition throughout, with some fine creases observed around the bolsters, and light marking on the seat bases. Some scratch marks are seen around the centre console and handbrake lever. Few signs of wear and tear are seen on the dash or door cards.
This car will come with a suite of original documentation, two sets of keys, and service records.
