A stunning Black-on-Black 996 Turbo fitted with a Manual Gearbox and the X50 PowerPack. It has covered just 55,000 miles with full service history.
In 2000, Porsche introduced the 996 Turbo, equipped with four-wheel-drive and a 3.6-litre, twin turbocharged and intercooled flat-six producing 420bhp, making the car capable of 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds. In 2002, the standard models underwent minor re-styling, which included switching to the Turbo-style headlamps and to a new front fascia. These were sometimes known as the Mk2 generation of the 996. The first water-cooled turbo engine, and one of the last to utilise the famous Mezger engine, can trace its ancestry back to the old air-cooled units and is directly related not only to the 996 GT3 but also the GT1 race cars! In standard tune, the performance figures were astonishing with 420hp, 0-62 in 4.2 seconds.
In 2002 you could order the X50 upgrade package, which pushed the output up to 450bhp with enlarged K24 turbos, intercoolers, ECU tune and a reinforced gearbox. The 2002 model, sometimes known as the Mk2, also saw body revisions which increased stiffness, improving handling and crash safety. This is one of those cars! UK supplied, it was first registered on 18th June 2002, this 996 Turbo X50 is finished in metallic black with black leather seats. It is fitted with the very desirable 6-speed manual gearbox and has covered just 56,000 miles from new.
