As far as iconic shapes go, the almost unaltered 911 silhouette has remained the height of fashion for decades. Bedroom wall posters, winning races, road tests and more for nearly 60 years. In fact, what better way to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the 911 next year (2023), than driving the pinnacle of the road going cars, the Turbo. In its early years dubbed the widow maker, for its rear end weight, turbo punch and the fact it loved to swap ends on an unexperienced driver. A lot has changed since those early days of the turbo, they are still revered and universally respected, but an altogether more polished and tractable car, easier to drive swiftly and with as many creature comforts as you could wish for, the ultimate cross between a supercar, GT car and a sports car? Well, an awful lot of motoring journalists seem to think so.
This particular car, is in a condition where it would befit a collector, or someone who will cherish its condition and history, as they don’t often come up in such good shape, with this provenance. The car is absolutely spot on, bar one small crack in the paint on the front valance, only noticeable from close range, the paintwork is spectacular, as is the interior, engine bay and front boot space. You’d be very hard pushed to mark the car down.
It is supplied with its original leather book pack, with every item still in situ, both keys on as new Porsche branded leather key rings and an additional leather folder with all of its service history, invoices and documentation neatly stored in date order, it really is one that you can’t go wrong with.
The 996 has been slightly unloved, be it due to the “fried egg” headlamps, or the fact that it is the first of the water-cooled cars, their values have been in the doldrums for some years, but now with a 993 Turbo hitting £250,000.00, the 996, especially one as good as this, looks like a very sensible investment for the future. The engine is also brutishly reliable, unlike the standard NA cars which suffered with IMS bearing failure, let us remind you that the Turbo doesn’t have one, thus will not suffer this fate - even more reason to trust in Stuttgart’s own understated missile!
It is every bit as good on the road as it was when new, stable, fast, refined and controlled. Every ounce of its German precision is still intact. If you’re looking for a Turbo to look after, that will no doubt look after you, you’d surely have to consider this one!
