2004 Porsche 911 Carrera Low mileage, 42,219 miles 3.6L DOHC, SMPI 24-valve HO flat, water-cooled six-cylinder engine with VarioCam Plus Tiptronic Automatic transmission (code 249) Arctic Silver exterior and black leather interior Air-conditioning Force sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering Four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock (ABS) with cross-drilled rotors Dual front airbags and door-mounted side impact airbags Cruise control Power door locks Power windows with 1-touch down Six-way power seats Headlight washers 4 spoke sport steering wheel Litronic Headlights Remote keyless entry Moonroof 18" Carrera II five spoke wheels with Bridgestone Potenza tires As the 20th Century drew to a close, Porsche did the unthinkable - it changed the formula for its iconic 911 model for the first time since 1963. The Porsche 996 is the result, with its water-cooled flat six (still in the rear) leading the modifications. This low mileage example comes from a local owner and is a very tidy Porsche 996 Coupe finished in Arctic Silver exterior. Time marches on, even for Porsche's stalwart 911. The company's 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 engine's rear location and overall body shape that have made the car so successful and famous in sports car circles. Dressed in Arctic Silver with black trim, the car's original paint is in overall very good condition. The 911's bodywork is straight and solid, its engine bay is very tidy, the cargo area is clean. The battery is clean and appears newer, tucked away in the trunk, away from engine heat and the body-colored bumpers are in very good condition. Rolling on Bridgestone Potenza tires, size 225/40R18 up front and 285/30R18 in back, each tire is mounted on a factory 18" Carrera II five spoke wheels. The tires are in good condition while the wheels are in good, original order but do have some minor road rash. 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 Tiptronic Automatic transmission (code 249). Driver convenience and safety features are plentiful - Air-conditioning, Force sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering, Four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock (ABS) with cross-drilled rotors, Dual front airbags and door-mounted side impact airbags, Cruise control, Power door locks, Power windows with 1-touch down, Six-way power seats, Headlight washers, 4 spoke sport steering wheel, Litronic Headlights and Remote keyless entry. Inside, the black leather bucket seats are in excellent condition, while the matching carpet is in very good order, as is the black headliner. In back is a 50/50 split-folding rear seat. There's a optional four-spoke, sport steering wheel that telescopes and is in fine shape, the inner door panels and dashboard are in fine condition, as is the center console. 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 you're not searching for a classic German car or an older Porsche, yet desire a fast, comfortable and distinctive vehicle, this 911 Carrera may just fill the bill.
