This 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera (VIN WP0AA2997XS624956) has a claimed 31,000 miles on the clock and is finished in Black over Black leather. The seller states, “There is not a better way to get into a 911 then a 996”. Bonus, IMS/Clutch has been taken care of. Find this one offered here on CarGurus in Addison, Illinois for $26,900.
So this isn’t exactly the CHEAPEST base 996 Carrera you can find (if you follow the site you know this already) but this car appears to be very well sorted. Did you get a chance to check out the PCA story on why the 1999 Carrera is the one to have? Have you been reading firstflatsix.com for a while, because we have been saying this since our very first post! This appears to be a PRISTINE low mileage 996 Carrera, with a reasonable ask considering it has a new clutch, IMS thermostat and 4 new tires.
We have said this 106X but I will repeat it for the new readers, we REALLY like the simplicity of the narrowbody 996 Carrera. In particular the 99’s because of the cable connected throttle, the 4 spoke 993 style steering wheel and the optional factory Limited Slip Differential. This car has the holy trinity, all three!!!
This car appears to be in immaculate condition. Modern enough, but still brings the nostalgic feelings of the 993, READ THE PCA story. We don’t spy many exterior options at all, we’re just seeing the 18″ 993 Turbo Look wheels. Paint looks fantastic in the sellers pics.
As for the interior, we spy Black FULL leather (dash, door cards and rear seats) powered comfort seats, and previously mentioned 4 spoke steering wheel. This car is equipped with the factory LSD, and we also spy aluminum gauges, and the optional shifter and parking break handle.
This car is really the perfect spec. 296Hp, 6sp, cable throttle, 4 spoke wheel, factory LSD AND super low mileage. Make sure to run a CarFax and don’t forget the PPI. Make sure you see receipts for the IMS/clutch work. Make this classic Carrera your firstflatsix!
