Boasting a production run of just 1,500 units, the 996 Turbo S came at the very end of the 996 production cycle in 2005 and was given the full house treatment of options. The engine was essentially the same as the standard Turbo but was fitted with VarioCam Plus, a further development of the familiar VarioCam system, which changes both the intake camshaft timing (by as much as 25°) as well as the intake valve lift. Bigger turbos, from theX50 Powerkit, were fitted boosting output to 450bhp and the car’s top speed broke through that magic 300km/h barrier, with a maximum of 190mph (307km/h) placing it firmly in supercar territory. PCCB Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes were fitted to the 'S' as standard.
Supplied new by Porsche Centre Belfast and first registered on 19th July 2005, this beautiful manual gearbox Turbo S was specified with black paintwork and black leather interior. Options included Turbo Aero kit, heated seats, front spoiler lip, sunshine roof and telephone module.
At the time of cataloguing the speedometer indicated just 18,079 miles and this is supported by entries in the service book with all routine servicing carried out by the supplying main dealer. Today this Turbo S presents in showroom condition with gleaming black paintwork retaining a deep gloss and pleasingly the interior shows very little signs of wear.
Offered with a history file containing its original Porsche book pack with the aforementioned service book and owners manuals. Also supplied are the spare keys, current V5 and a new MOT Certificate valid until 24th June 2021. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy ownership of a high-performance, modern classic Porsche in outstanding condition and great colours with an unquestionable provenance.
This car has formed part of a significant collection for the past few years. In preparation for the sale, the engine will be flushed, filled with fresh oil and a new filter fitted, the fuel tank drained, flushed and filled with 20 litres of fuel, fitted with a new battery and issued with a fresh MOT Certificate. A safety check will also be carried out along with an inspection report included in the history file.
