    Porsche 996 911 (Carrera and Turbo) 1998-2004

    One thread for the :
    • Porsche 996 911 Carrera, Coupé/Cabriolet
    • Porsche 996 911 Carrera 4, Coupé/Cabriolet
    • Porsche 996 911 Carrera 4S, Coupé/Cabriolet
    • Porsche 996 911 Turbo, Coupé/Cabriolet
    • Porsche 996 911 Turbo S, Coupé/Cabriolet



    The Porsche 996 is the internal designation for the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between 1998 and 2005. It was replaced by the Type 997. Both body styles were produced by Porsche in 2005, based upon model type.

    At its debut, the 996 featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its 1963 introduction; the most significant change with this new iteration is the water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled engine. Progressively stringent noise regulations, environmental concerns, a higher expectation for refinement and a high-performance 4 valve per cylinder engine made the switch necessary. The 996 Carrera (non GT and Turbo models) engine is designed with what Porsche calls the "integrated dry sump oiling". This "integrated dry sump" engine does not have an oil scavenge pump in the crankcase to pump the engine oil to a separate holding tank outside the crankcase as a true dry sump design would have. The only scavenge pumps in the 996 engine are in the camshaft boxes and the oil is pumped from there to the bottom of the crankcase as it would be in any "wet sump" engine. Other changes include a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a re-designed interior.

    Porsche 996 911 Turbo S

    Porsche 911 Turbo S Announced

    World premiere of new Coupe and Cabriolet at Birmingham Motor Show



    The new Porsche 911 Turbo S builds on the awe-inspiring attributes of the 911 Turbo, and takes the driving experience to a new, higher level. The Turbo S, which is available both as a Coupe and Convertible, is based on the current 996 generation 911 Turbo and will join the broadest ever range of 911 models when it goes on sale in August.

    Porsche 911 Turbo S Coupe

    The evocative twin-turbocharged, 3.6-litre flat six engine has been tuned in the Turbo S model to develop more power and torque for even greater performance – and Porsche engineers have achieved this while ensuring fuel consumption and emissions barely differ from the standard Turbo model.

    The vital statistics of the Turbo S are impressive. Power is raised by 30bhp to 450bhp, and pulling power leaps to 620Nm from 560Nm. This increase in engine responsiveness manifests itself particularly during in-gear acceleration – which is stunning. The engine delivers these remarkable figures courtesy of larger turbochargers, modified intercoolers and revised engine management electronics. Additionally, the six speed manual transmission has been strengthened to handle the torque increase.

    The brakes of the 911 Turbo S have also been uprated similarly. Fitted as standard are the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) system, offering a 50% weight reduction per wheel over the conventional steel brake disc equivalent, as well as superior fade resistance characteristics under heavy braking.

    Standard equipment on the Turbo S includes metallic paint (including a special colour – Dark Olive metallic), Xenon headlights, a BOSE audio system and the Porsche Communication Management System (PCM) incorporating audio, telephone and satellite navigation functionality. Additionally, the Turbo S offers 18" alloy wheels painted in GT Silver metallic, plus full leather interior trim, aluminium-coloured instrument dials, cruise control and a CD autochanger.

    The Porsche 911 Turbo S Coupe is priced at £99,300.00 (inc VAT).

    Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet

    Taking the performance potential of the Turbo S Coupe and adding the versatility of an electric folding roof, the Turbo S Cabriolet is the ultimate expression of open-top 911 motoring. Roof operation is electro-hydraulic and allows the driver to open or close the roof fully automatically in just 20 seconds at the touch of a button. And to allow even greater flexibility, the driver can choose to lower or close the roof either at a standstill, or at speeds of up to 31mph (50km/h). Like all Porsche 911 Cabriolet models, the Turbo S also comes as standard with a removable aluminium hardtop - weighing only 33kg - for year-round convenience.

    The Turbo S Cabriolet shares the same 450bhp engine as the Coupe, and has a six-speed manual gearbox. However, both the Coupe and Convertible Turbo S models can be ordered with the Porsche Tiptronic S five-speed automatic transmission.

    The price of the Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet is £105,030.00 (inc VAT).
