2001 Porsche 911 Turbo

Finding value in the 911 range is always a difficult proposition. Finding a value that also brings with it excellent performance can be darn near impossible. As with most things in life, there is always an exception. The 996TT has been that exception for a while now and even as values for an air-cooled 911 continue to rise, these little loved water-cooled models pretty much stay the same. With more than 400 hp on tap these are very fast cars that will deliver you to your destination with a dose of style and also ferocity and while the all-wheel drive setup provides security against the 911’s tail-wagging nature these cars are still capable of biting back against inattentive drivers. There really are few performance options for the cost of a 996TT on the market these days. The example here is a Black 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo, located in Massachusetts, with 55,908 miles on it.

Asking prices for a 996TT tend to range from $30K-$60K with the example here coming in on the lower end of that range. As is typical of such a car, there are some negatives that will need to be investigated prior to purchase, but the appearance looks quite good. The paint still looks sharp and the beautiful exterior looks to be in fine shape. There aren’t a lot of pictures, it’s had 7 owners, a decent number of miles, and some modifications, all of which require buyers to proceed with caution. But if everything checks out, then getting performance like this for around $35K could be quite a bargain.

  1. Great find – incredible performance value.
    Too bad Porsche did that “thing” with the front end of the 996. Even though early cars had engine issues I can’t help but wonder what the legacy of the 996 would have been if Porsche would have simply designed the front end with traditional 911 headlights.

  2. I haven’t even bothered checking Google, but I’d presume as with many other 911s there are update kits that could make a 996 look like a 997 – which would make it much more appreciated even if it was pretending. Anyone know? As a drive to the track, pass everyone and cruise home silently weapon, these are currently unmatched values.

  3. The pics feet away from a pool make it look like they’re trying to hide it from the cops. lol. Maybe they just want to keep an eye on it from the living room.

  4. if I recall correctly the 996 TT & 996 GT3 did not have the same engine issues as the standard 996 cars.
    that said I’d take a 996TT w/the X-50 package any day…the front clip can be changed out as was mentioned.
