Introduction

Glyn Parry
Professional Consigner

As if the 996 Turbo wasn't capable enough in standard guise, Stuttgart added more spice with the X50.

The Porsche 911 Turbo was introduced at the turn of the century in 2000, coming from the factory with a staggering ~414BHP coupled to an all-wheel drive system that could reliably and quickly put the power down; as a result of this the Turbo quickly became a popular sports car and had no difficulty in upholding the reputation of the 911. The 996 introduced a complete redesign for the vehicle, with smoother body lines, a longer nose, and a significantly lighter chassis that was 45% stiffer than its predecessor. All of this combined to represent a considerable milestone in Porsche’s history, with some marking the introduction of the 996 Turbo as the beginning of the Porsche everyday supercar age.

This particular car comes to market from a ~12-year ownership, and just 2 former keepers have had the pleasure before. The car has the desirable "X50 Pack" from factory, that boosts output to ~444BHP. In addition, the specification in coupe form with manual gearbox and no sunroof make this car about as stiff as you can get. The servicing has been carried out when needed based on mileage, and overall this is an extremely well-presented car in "Midnight Blue Metallic" over "Metropol Blue" leather interior.

This listing was written from information supplied by Glyn after meeting Stephen the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

I can't believe it's been 12 years, I enjoyed it for a couple of years initially and then the car has spent a lot of time carefully stored.

Stephen has had this 911 Turbo for the past ~12 years. It was purchased with approximately ~66,200 miles on the car, and as you will see from the mileage history, he hasn’t really used the car an enormous amount. The car was enjoyed for a couple of years, covering just a few hundred miles each year until 2019, when it went into full-time storage.

With such little use in the past few years, Stephen has decided to part company with the fantastic Turbo X50. A fresh MOT has been carried out, and it is ready to go to the next enthusiastic custodian. Please feel free to ask Stephen any questions about the car in the comments below.

Exterior

Huge hips complete with air intakes, there is no mistaking this is a 911 Turbo.

Wheels and Tyres

Fitted with 18” Turbo Twist alloy wheels, although these might look the same as wheels from a Carrera 4S, they are hollow spoked on the Turbo to add some weight saving. Their condition is excellent, with just a couple of very minor marks.

A matching set of Continental Sport Contact 2 tyres are fitted, which have a good amount of tread remaining on the rear, there are some small signs of cracking to the front items and they have less tread as detailed in the recent MOT. Please see the image gallery to take a closer look at the wheels.

Bodywork

Walking around the Porsche, the panel gaps are all equal and matching, and we didn’t notice any dings or dents to point out. The bumpers also fit well, as you would expect, we didn't notice any corrosion to the lower body panels that these cars can develop, and this particular model is the more desirable non-sunroof version.

We've highlighted in more detail our observations through our hi-resolution images and videos, so please take time to look through all the media files for a detailed view at what’s on offer and for you to assess the condition of the car for yourselves.

Paint

Finished in the stunning "Midnight Blue Metallic", the paintwork presents very well indeed. There are an odd couple of age-related stone chips and a small chip on the edge of the driver's door, but in the main, this 911 Turbo is in lovely condition with an even coverage and colour of paint across the car.

The images are taken from a few different angles to show off the car as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves. So please take the time to fully assess these hi-resolution images and videos of the car, for you to make up your own minds about the condition of the paint.

Glass and Trim

The windows are in good condition with no apparent scratches to be seen. The trim around the windows and roof is also in excellent condition.

The Xenon headlights look good, not a lot of fog/haze that you can see on this generation of 911, they could be made even better with a bit of detailing. The rear lights are in good order with no damage.

Interior

Finished in Metropol blue leather, the 911’s interior is the perfect place to become at one with the feel of the 911 Turbo.

Seats and Carpets

The leather seats are in superb condition with no major wear to the bolsters, and the bases are still nice and tight with no sagging. Both front seats are electric, with the driver’s side also having the memory function. The rear seats are in "like new" condition and don’t really look to have been sat in.

The carpets are in excellent condition and have no signs of age. There is also a set of Porsche fitted mats which are in good order. Please see the interior gallery for more detailed images.

Dashboard

Finished in matching leather to the seats, the dashboard shows no damage. There are a couple of age-related marks around the glovebox, but nothing excessive. The instruments are finished with optional aluminium look dials that are all reported to be working correctly, and the odometer has a reading of ~71,257 miles. There are also no warning lights displayed when the car is running.

Please see the interior gallery for more hi-resolution images.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

More Metropol Blue Leather for the steering wheel, again this is in very good condition with signs of light use.

The gearstick is in excellent condition; often an item which picks up a lot of scratches, we are pleased to say this hasn’t suffered the same fate. Please see the interior gallery for more detailed images.

Mechanics

The 911 Turbo is without doubt a fantastic car, the X50 pack turns it into an even more capable everyday supercar.

Engine and Gearbox

The car has been in storage for a while, and when we initially started it, the alarm did go off as the battery was a little low. After just a few minutes of running, this was fine, and when it was restarted later in the shoot, the alarm did not sound. With the car having been in storage, the engine bay would benefit from some detailing to make it match the excellent presentation of the exterior and interior.

The car fires up as it should, with no smoke or untoward noises from the engine bay. The gears can be selected easily going up and down the gearbox, and as expected, the car pulls strongly through the rev range. Watch the video to see the car in action.

Suspension and Brakes

As you would expect from a performance car, the Porsche comes with a fantastic suspension package, sitting a touch lower than a regular 996; the suspension has a firm and sporty feel. No knocks or bangs were heard on our test drive, and everything appeared to be in good order.

With drilled discs on each corner, the Turbo X50 stops in a straight line, with no issues reported. The discs don’t appear to have a great deal of wear, and the red finished caliplers look in excellent condition.

The Drive

What’s not to love about being out in the Porsche 911 Turbo X50? It looks fantastic, sounds amazing, there is more than enough performance to keep you entertained, and the driver feedback is superb. It's also a car you can use more than just at the weekend if you wish; thanks to the luxury interior, the 911 is also very comfortable.

Electrics and Other

All the switchgear looks to be in excellent condition and is said to be working as it should, including the air conditioning. The car also comes with the Bose speaker upgrade and CD multichanger.

Please see the interior gallery for more detailed images.

History and Paperwork

Coming to market from ~12 year ownership, the car has covered ~5,000 miles in that time, a genuine C16 X50 Pack car with just 2 former keepers, a great proposition for enthusiasts and collectors alike.

The 911 comes with its original handbooks and service book, which has a total of 13 service stamps, five brake fluid stamps and three long-life condition report stamps. The most recent service was carried out in 2019, and the car has covered ~730 miles since then. There are also some invoices for previous service work, including new brake lines that were fitted in 2016, along with the air conditioning recharge and new condensers. We think this is an excellent time to invest in a Porsche 911 Turbo, especially this one, with just two previous keepers, low mileage for the age and don’t forget it has the X50 pack. The condition inside and out is excellent, and it has the more desirable manual gearbox and no sunroof; basically, it ticks just about everything on a checklist for buying a Porsche 911.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks, including photo ID, V5 and also actioned a HPi check on the vehicle.

We've summarised our own view on the car based on information gained from the seller in the listing above, however, and as you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in hi-resolution detail - this has been done for you to make your own assessment from the comfort of your sofa. So please sit back, have a cuppa and take your time to review everything on this listing in order to make your own assessment on the vehicle's condition. Viewings are also welcomed with all our listings, so please get in touch with us to arrange a suitable time - we just need to speak to you first and receive a valid photo ID before confirming.

If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please first ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bid/s, as bids can't be retracted and form a binding contract if you win the car - just like a traditional auction house.
