You wont find many 16-year-old Porsche 911s with fewer than 68,000 miles on the clock but we know of one place with one: MotoeXotica Classic Cars. We are pleased to present this 2003 Porsche 911 Carrera.
Time marches on, even for Porsches stalwart 911. The companys ground-breaking vehicle finally switched to a water-cooled engine in place of the air-cooled one it used for the previous 40 years. What the company kept the same was the engines rear location and overall body shape that have made the car so successful and famous in sports car circles.
Dressed in silver metallic with black trim, the cars paint is in overall very good order, with minor imperfections: This example features vinyl 911 body side graphics as well, which complement the body color, removable of you so desire. There is a clear vinyl bra on the front nose of the car.
The 911s bodywork is straight and solid, its engine bay is very tidy, the cargo area is clean, although at least one strut that holds the lid open has failed. The battery is clean and appears new, tucked away in the trunk, away from engine heat and the body-colored bumpers are in very good condition.
Rolling on Sumitomo HTR Z II tires, size 225/40ZR18 up front and 285/30ZR18 in back, each tire is mounted on a factory, five-spoke aluminum wheel that is currently black to match the bodyside graphics and offer additional contrast to the paint. The tires are in good condition while the wheels are in great, original order.
Under that vented rear wing is the 3.6L DOHC, SMPI, 24-valve high-output, horizontally-opposed and water-cooled six-cylinder engine with a VarioCam Plus variable valve timing system. Fuel injection and electronic ignition are fully-integrated and the car sports a Motronic ME 7.8 engine management system. This motor is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and has a 3.44:1 final drive.
Driver convenience and safety features are plentiful automatic climate control with carbon filter; force sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering; power four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock and cross-drilled rotors; dual front airbags; door-mounted side airbags; cruise control; power locks; power windows with one-touch down; six-way power seats; rear window defroster; power-folding and heated sideview mirrors; remote keyless entry; projector-beam headlights with heated washer jets; and moonroof.
Inside, the black leather bucket seats are in excellent condition, while the matching carpet is in very good order, as is the black Alcantara headliner. In back is a 50/50 split-folding rear seat. Theres a three-spoke, leather-wrapped steering wheel that telescopes and is in fine shape, the inner door panels and dashboard are in fine condition, as is the center console and leather-wrapped shift knob and handbrake lever. Completing the interior is a Bose AM/FM stereo with updated stereo head-unit with CD player and four speakers.
The 996 had little in common with its predecessor, with the first all new chassis platform since the original 911 and a new, water-cooled engine. Technically, it was a major change, a complete breakthrough from the original car other than overall layout.
Development was shared with its entry-level sibling, the roadster-only Boxster, which was introduced around the same time, including the front suspension, various interior components, and the engine, all of which were enlarged for the 996. However, the multi-link rear suspension was derived from the preceding 993.
At its debut, the 996 featured the most significant change from the classic 911 series: a water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled engine. Progressively stringent emissions and noise regulations, environmental concerns, a higher expectation for refinement and the need for a high-performance, four valve per cylinder engine made the switch necessary. Other major changes include a completely new platform having a sleeker body with a more raked windshield, and a re-designed interior along with new fried egg shaped headlamps instead of previous bug eye headlamps.
If youre not searching for a classic German car or an older Porsche, yet desire a fast, comfortable and distinct
