The Porsche Type 996 911 Carrera represents a water shed moment in Porsche engineering and in 2002, Porsche reworked the car further to produce a much more exciting machine in the 996.2.
The previous 3.4 litre engine was increased to 3.6 litres producing 15 more horsepower, a facelift brought in a new front end with turbo-style headlights and a new rear bar featured distinctive twin ellipsoid exhausts. The revised 996 Carrera was now faster, better looking and much more exciting and by most accounts, this is the generation to own.
According to its original maintenance and warranty booklet, this last of production, 996 911 Carrera was delivered new by Porsche Centre Melbourne in November of 2004 and has travelled just 38,500 kilometres in 15 years!
Ordered in Basalt Black over Black leather, this superb car has never missed an annual service with each and every one completed by the factory and the IMS bearing has also been replaced by specialists, IMS Solutions. The last service was completed in August of this year.

0-100 kmh scorches past in just 4.6 seconds and with more low-end grunt and stronger high-rpm over the previous generation this is the 996 does Clark Kent from Monday-Friday as well as it does Superman for weekend blasts through the mountains.
