2003 Porsche 911 Turbo (996)
Factory Hot Rod
Here we have a beautiful example of a 2003 911 Turbo with the X50 performance package. First available in 2002, the X50 option bumped the horsepower from 415 to 450. This was done with larger k24 turbos and engine tuning. Typically the package was an additional $17000.00 to the sticker price. Although a Turbo S was not available until 2005, the X50 gave 996 turbos the “S” treatment. This particular Turbo has several other desirable options including special order full Cinnamon Brown leather, aluminum/chrome trim, and Bose premium sound. It has just under 80k miles and has been very well maintained.

The car was ordered in the very attractive Midnight Blue Metallic. The color is dark in low light and comes to life in the sun. Aside from a few minor rock chips on the front bumper, the paint is in like new condition. The car has never been involved in any accidents and has a very clear Carfax. The lights are in excellent shape without the typical fading from the sun. All of the glass is very nice and free of chips or cracks. The trim and rubber pieces are also in beautiful shape and show little to no age. Underneath, the car has not been scraped up, dented, or bottomed out. All of the skid plates are intact and the firmly secured. This is a very beautiful and well kept car for its age.
Ordered new thorough the Porsche Exclusive Program, this Turbo was optioned with full Cinnamon Brown Leather and Aluminum/ Chrome accents. It also has the black suede headliner and black Porsche floor mats. The interior is a perfect match to the Midnight Blue exterior. The leather is soft and fresh and has the new Porsche smell. All of the carpets are free from tears, stains, or discoloration. There is some minor wear around the interior as is expected for the age of the car but nothing major. All of the electronics work as does the cruise control, heat, and AC. An upgraded Alpine head unit was installed and incorporates Bluetooth and auxiliary access into the stereo. The car comes with all of the books, COA, copy of the window sticker, several Porsche Promotional items, two keys, tools, jack, and compressor. There is also a GT3 spare tire delete tray included with the factory spare.
This car performs on a supercar level. It is very easy to drive and delivers the incredibly enjoyable feedback to the driver that is expected from any 911. The engine is very strong and operates smoothly as it should. The transmission and the all wheel drive are in great condition. There are no issues shifting and the clutch was recently replaced. The clutch accumulator was replaced at the same time so there are no pedal issues. The car has four very new tires and the brakes in good condition as well. Techart springs were added to lower the car however the ride and drivability has not been affected at all. It is great driving car that handles and performs better than many of the new sports cars out there today. These Turbos are a great buy and an excellent investment.
