CSC are excited to offer for sale this beautifully presented, Model Launch Demo 996 turbo Cabriolet finished in classic Basalt Black with complimenting black leather interior and cabriolet roof.
The Porsche 911 turbo is truly the stuff of legend, and in 2000 the first water cooled version, the 996 arrived offering genuine supercar performance in a compact and practical package. Powered by a 3.6 twin turbo flat six engine derived from their 1998 Le Mans winning 911 GT1 race car and featuring Porsches 4 wheel drive system, the car could hit 62mph in under 4.5 seconds and reach almost 190mph.
The cabriolet version was available for only 3 years from 2003 until production ended in 2005, and featured a reinforced chassis to handle the power without compromise to handling. Cabriolets featured a twin skinned, electrically operated convertible roof which folded away neatly under the rear deck whilst retaining the 911’s 2+2 seating making for a very pretty and practical soft top sports car.
This example has the rare and interesting option 762 showing this car was one of the original ‘Launch Demonstrators’ for the newly released 996 cabriolet back in early 2003, and explains the high specification.
The Metallic Black exterior of this example presents beautifully with arrow straight bodywork and barely a stone chip to be found. The electrically retractable hood is also in excellent condition with no major marks or signs of wear.
Inside, the car features Porsches superb hard-backed sports seats, and the Black leather interior is in excellent condition and shows no major signs of hard use. Opening the doors this car features the rare (and expensive) factory option of ‘turbo’ inscribed carbon door entry guards trims whilst the car also features PCM with navigation and BOSE sound system.
