Porsche 911 Carrera 996.
At the end of 1997 Porsche presents the replacement of the 911 (993), the 996. A revolutionary car for Porsche, prone to air-cooled engines, and the round headlights that made the 911 recognizable at first glance. The designer of the 996 was Pinky Lai, who wanted to overturn the line of the coupe from Stuttgart, leaving the essence of the 911 unchanged: the 4 seats and the boxer engine at the rear. For economies of scale, the 996 shared many components with the coeval Boxster, but despite this it was the best-selling 911 up to then, with more power than the 993, greater comfort and lower weight.
The 911 proposed by MotorHeroes features a beautiful combination of colors, with highly sought-after options: first of all the sunroof, essential for fully enjoying the sound of the 6-cylinder, the manual gearbox and finally one of the rarest options on the 996, the limited slip differencial LSD.
The car has 148,000 km, original and verified by maintenance carried out at Porsche centres, double set of winter and summer tires and ASI registration, which attest its originality.
The 996 that has always been mistreated by collectors is enjoying a second youth with keep rising prices and make it always more desirable.
