The 2005 Turbo S is the pinnacle of the the 996 Turbo lineup. 2005 was the official end of production for the 996 body style. Prior to 2005, Porsche had not offered a Turbo S. In 2005 only 186 Turbo S coupes were built for the US market. Even more limited were Turbo S coupes with a 6-speed gearbox. The Turbo S came standard with the X50 Performance Engine Package that produced 450hp. It also came standard with Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes (PCCB), Full Leather Interior, and Premium Sound. With a window sticker price of just under $150,000.00, the Turbo S was the Flagship Turbo for the 996 lineup.
This car was sold new in Florida and eventually made its way to Ohio and then Kentucky. It has had a healthy accident free life with 5 previous owners. It is primarily stock with the exception of lowering springs, a sport exhaust with headers, GT2 style stage 2 clutch, updated diverter valves, and a computer tune. The car was dynoed at just over 500hp. These are very moderate modifications for the M96/70S engine. These engines are capable of well over 750hp with stock internals.
The car maintains a very stock appearance and the factory XCE aero kit provides an aggressive look. All of the systems on the car work great and operate as they should. The car is very quick and the ceramic brakes offer more than adequate stopping power. The car has recently had fluids/filters and brand new tires. It comes with books, both sets of keys, tools, jack, spare and a clean Carfax. This is a really wonderful example of an investment grade Porsche.
