Presented in probably the very best colour combination, this vehicle was the 6th incarnation of the famous 911 Turbo. Available as a Turbo Cabriolet for the first time in nearly 15 years, this model created a great deal of excitement with Porsche’s fans.
The fact that the 996 Turbo came with four-wheel drive and Porsche Stability Management as standard meant that it was also capable of delivering the most sophisticated, safest Porsche 911 driving experience yet.
It had a 3,600 cc engine, with twin turbochargers, and was water cooled, which brought power up to a staggering 420 BHP, making the car capable of 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. Compared with the previous 993 model, the 996 represented a virtual redesign. Cosmetically, it moved Porsche on in many significant yet subtle ways: the lines were smoothed out, the windscreen was raked right back, the cabin was roomier and the facia finally looked like it had been styled. The structure managed the neat trick of being 45 per cent stiffer yet lighter than the older model. The chassis and brakes are a perfect match for the engine’s performance.
