Engine and Gearbox
This engine was directly derived from the GT1 Porsche that won Le Mans in 1998, developed by Porsche's genius engineer Hans Mezger. The particularly strongly constructed Mezger engine, combined with its advanced Porsche AWD (All Wheel Drive) drive, makes it a direct sequel to the Porsche 959 supercar. Not in the least because the 996 Turbo engine uses the water-cooled Porsche 959 cylinder heads. Partly by these features the 996 series 911 Turbo have become the new modern collectible.
The 6-cylinder boxer engine of this 911 Turbo has a 3.6 liter cylinder capacity and, due to its two turbochargers, provides 420 hp power and a torque of 560 nm. In order to convey this enormous power onto the road, this motor is coupled to a semi-automatic Tiptronic transmission with 5 gears with both rear and front wheels. Porsche has designed its 4-wheel drive in such a way that the car still offers the typical 911 rear wheel-driven feel to its driver. But with the Porsche Stability Management, the car has a grip and stability that no one has ever felt before. The AMG Speed Shift Tiptronic transmission is highly flexible and sporty, both in full-automatic and in manual mode. According to tests, it is the fastest shifting gearbox, even faster than that of the Ferrari 360 Modena F1, which the Turbo competed with at that time.
At 130.000 km Porsche D'Ieteren in Brussels carried out extensive maintenance. However, in order for a new owner not to have any worries about maintenance, we have carried out very extensive maintenance and various restoration and renovation work. This maintenance includes extensive work on the braking system, suspension and wheels, maintenance and checks of all engine systems, turbos, drive line and fluids. All lines and hoses and the floors and chassis have also been thoroughly addressed and also the electrical systems and the computer have been checked. You will not find a better 996 Turbo than this one!
