2001 Porsche 996 TT
2001 Porsche 996 Twin Turbo- w/ 14k original miles!
Every so often, if you are exceedingly lucky, a car so special it almost defies description comes along, this is one of those cars… If you are looking for a 996 Twin Turbo to add to your collection and the word “compromise” is not in your dictionary, this is your car. Here is the story:
The car was special ordered by its original owner and was delivered new on September 1st 2001 to its Niello Porsche in Sacramento, CA. Its total price out the door was a whopping $121,555! It has had two owners since, one from 2001 to 2006 and 2006 to current, both of which were PCA members who understood the car and knew what it takes to keep it pristine! So many of these 996tt’s have lived hard lives, not this car! I would challenge you to find another like it…
The car is finished in an absolutely drop dead combination of Seal Gray Metallic exterior over Boxster Red Interior. The paint on the car is absolutely unbelievable; it is a deep, lustrous gray with no swirls, scratches or imperfections. It has never been damaged, parked outside and seen any type of weather. It has 100% original paint as verified by paint meter. Most cars look better in pictures, this is the exception. This car looks better in person!
Here is how it is optioned:
- Seal Gray Metallic

- Heated seats- $400

The interior of the car is without flaw of any kind. What really sets this car apart is how it is optioned. The interior is SPECTACULAR! Full leather covers almost every surface right down to the stitched speaker grilles. It features deviated black carpet, painted console and aluminum brake and shift knobs and doorsills. I have never seen a nicer 996 interior!
Mechanically the car is without reproach. It has traveled exactly 14,850 miles since new. I have a complete service history showing great care including the common and expensive rear spoiler fix. I just had a complete Pre-Purchase Inspection done (PPI) and I am happy to share those results with anyone, just request it.
Being a collector car it is imperative that cars of this caliber have every piece of documentation and be complete. The buyer of this car will receive the following:
- Original Window Sticker
- Complete Service history
- All the books and manuals in the correct case
- Both keys
- The complete tool kit, jack, drop cloth and gloves
- The OEM Porsche tire pump
The 996TT represents an unbelievable performance bargain, 415hp coupled with all wheel drive means this car will hit 60 mph in under 4 seconds and almost reach 200mph all while ensconced in total luxury. Not to mention the 996TT escapes many of the common issues that affect the normally aspirated 996 cars such as intermediate shaft failure. To drive this car is to believe it…
If you are looking for a 996TT to add to your collection or are looking for a car to take home a trophy at the Porsche Parade, this is your car. You certainly could find a less expensive example, but you wont find a finer one!
