92,000 MILES WITH FULL HISTORY
X50 POWER PACK / MANUAL
Here at Old Colonel Cars, the Classic and Performance Car Agency, we have a superb example of the Porsche 996 Turbo Manual with the very sought after X50 Power Pack.
A 2001 6 speed manual car with only 92,000 miles.
Porsche 996 Turbos with the X50 option came from factory with larger K24 turbochargers, larger intercoolers, a revised ECU, exhaust modifications, raising the engine’s output from 414 to 444bhp. Not only did it produce more power, the car was much more responsive low down, a very noticeable upgrade.
Just about every 2023 classic car magazine tips the 996 Turbo as the next car to rise in value. The all suggest you should look for a Manual X50 Coupe, just like this example.
This 996 Turbo is finished in one of the most sought after colour combinations, Cobalt Blue Metallic with a Grey Sports interior. This is a rare and sought after colour, quite an expensive option at the time. As you can hopefully see from the pictures and videos, this example if in pristine condition, it really stands out. Just taking pictures of this car, 2 different people stopped to comment on the colour, both in very high end performance cars, they thought it looked amazing..
This December 2001 example comes with some very desirable options including the X50 factory Performance Upgrade / Milltek Sports Exhaust / Electric sunroof / Heated Electric seats / Litronic (Xenon) Headlights with Headlamp Wash /Carbon / Body colour Pack / BOSE ‘High End’ Sound System / Sports Crested Seats
If you are looking for one of these very sought after 911’s, you will know that the Porsche 996 Turbo features the twin turbo 3.6 engine derived from the Le Mans winning 911 GT1 race car, the ‘Mezger’ engine. This doesn’t suffer the same faults as other Porsche’s from this period and proves to be a very strong and sought after engine for this reason.
If you look at the detailed history on our website, you will see this example has an amazing service history. No less than 23 service stamps, by either Porsche or well respected specialist. Its had lots of recent maintenance including suspension arms, brakes, boost valves and pipework, regular oil services, clutch servo and accumulator, oil lines, every fluid, top mounts, all callipers refurbished. Running on Michelin PS2s. Other points to note in history, radiators / turbos rebuilt etc.
We have all the original manuals, a fully stamped original service book, a folder thick with old MOT’s / Service receipts.
This car has the option sticker under bonnet and in the service book.
Just serviced at 90,401 miles and MOT’d until 27th Jan 2024 (No Advisories).
This Porsche also comes with an ‘X50’ plate.
A perfectly maintained 996 Turbo, ready to be enjoyed now.
