Presenting a 1999 Porsche Carrera Cabriolet triple black with only 76891 miles, local bay area car since December of 2003.
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 4 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.
The Porsche 996 is the internal designation for the 911 model manufactured from 1997 to 2006 It was replaced by the 997 in 2004. 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 the overall layout.
This particular car has been in the bay area since 2003 and has been serviced at local Porsche dealerships and lately at Peter Wolf Porsche Marin and Cars dawydiak.
The convertible top has just been replaced, the leather interior in good shape and does not show sign of discolor by the Sun.
The paint shows some blemishes and is in fair considering the vehicle is a daily driver.
The Bridgestone Potenza 225/40/18 are measuring 7/32 in the front and the 265/35/18 are measuring 7/32 in the back.
The Brakes are measuring 6.0 MM in the front and 8.0MM in the back.
Overwall a nice well maintained Every day driver, price to sell !!!
