1999 Porsche 911 Cabriolet

T-5R don't hit the market very often. When they emerge they tend to be garage queens or clapped-out daily drivers.

The 996 generation of the Porsche 911 had a production span from 1997 through to 2006, this generation marked a big shift in Porsche culture as the first water-cooled 911 along with the controversial move away from the traditional Porsche ‘bug eye’ headlights to the ever talked about ‘fried egg’ design of the 996. Despite the divided opinions created by the headlights, the 996 was an epic move in the right direction for Porsche, 4 valves per cylinder and a lighter chassis than the 993 that it replaced. This example shows low miles and no major modifications, making this a perfect addition to anyone’s collection. The seller states that this car has been stored inside and isn’t driven regularly. Under the current ownership new tires have been fitted along with a full vehicle service which included the replacement of shifter bearings. It is unknown whether the IMS bearing has been replaced. The price reflects margin for the next owner to take-on this service, which is estimated at $6,000. 



This Porsche 911 droptop is the perfect weekend cruiser, with a 0-60 in 4.9 and top speed of 165 mph, it’s bound to put a smile on your face and some fresh air in your lungs. Engine response from the 3.4-liter flat-six double-overhead-cam motor's variable-plenum intake and VarioCam valve timing is instant and linear. The engine puts out 296 horsepower and 258 foot-pounds of torque. The addiction comes in with the 6-speed manual transmission. Handling wise, the improved suspension is derived from the 928, and it's designed to protect the car from oversteer while cornering at the limit. Huge brake rotors and GT1-inspired monobloc calipers make slowing down even easier than accelerating. Did we mention the cabrio’s top drops about as quickly as a sun roof? About 15 seconds to be exact. It's worth mentioning you can raise and lower the top using the key in the door handle as well as the dash-mounted switch. Once down you’re able to take in all the driving feels. The car is both quite with the top up and down as well. A spacious and ergonomically friendly layout make short or long drives effortless, and comfortable thanks to the 911’s Porsche perfect seats.

The 996 generation of the Porsche 911 showed us a glimpse of Porsche’s vision for the future, out with the air cooled and in with new water cooling technology. The 996 was lighter and made more power than the 993 that preceded it, all while having a longer and wider wheelbase. When you put all of this together, you start to realize that the 996 was a marvel of its time generating more grip than any 911 before it, with the power to back it up too. Despite the controversial headlights, the 996 has proven to be a popular 911 platform that is becoming harder to find in good condition.





The Savannah beige interior shows well throughout with no major staining or flaws apart from one noted stain on the steering wheel. The power adjusted seats work as they should and show very few signs of wear. The interior remains stock and true to its original design, we would personally opt to go through with the GT3 center console delete to help make the car more driver centric. 



The Glacier white paint looks uniform and adds a vibrant glossy exterior to this package. It does appear that the passenger door has been repainted, however color and texture matching have been done correctly with a high level of attention to detail. The remainder of the vehicle is believed to wear original paint, the black soft top has been well cared for and shows no signs of discoloration or ripping.



Seller reports that the vehicle is in proper working order, there is a lack of service documentation and no report of the IMS bearing being addressed. We recommend an immediate remedy to the IMS bearing issue as well as a full inspection of the mechanical condition before this car is enjoyed.
