2004 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet (996)
For the purist
November 2003 build although 2004 Model Year specification, this 911 Turbo Cabriolet is a rare car for a myriad of wonderful reasons – astonishingly low 13,909 genuine kilometres, faultless midnight blue paintwork, blemish free sumptuous leather interior and, here’s one for the purists, six-speed manual gearbox!
A driver's car
While the default transmission of choice for most convertibles is a select-and-forget auto for easy cruising, this drop top has a slick six-speed shifter to add spirited driving into the mix when required … after all, it is a Porsche and therefore a driver’s car.
This example will satisfy any inspection and any road test. The soft leather seats are immaculate, the ride is remarkably comfortably for what is ostensibly a high-performance car and the roof retracts and closes at the press of a single button, with no latches or clips to deal with.
Precise and powerful
The gear shift has an oh-so-perfect détente to make every shift easy and precise and its road manners are impeccable. But push the loud pedal to the carpet and the 996 Turbo Cabriolet rushes towards the horizon with its full 560 Nm of torque available across the 2,700 – 4,600 rpm mid-range.
Many cars in one
The 996 Turbo Cabriolet is so many cars in one: seriously fast and immensely competent sports car to compliant and comfortable boulevard cruiser and everything in between. A unique offering from Zagame Collection.
