2003 Porsche 911 Turbo X50

Back in December I stated that I hoped to feature a few more examples of the 996TT, in part because of my own interest in the market for them and in part because they remain somewhat under appreciated. Then the holidays happened, other work got in the way, and for a while I simply didn’t come across a car that I found particularly interesting. But now I have. The car featured here, located in Las Vegas, is a 2003 Speed Yellow Porsche 911 Turbo with the factory X50 package. At 13,588 the mileage is reasonably low, it hasn’t been ridiculously modified, and did I mention that it’s Speed Yellow? A standard 996TT was always a quick car and these days one can be had at pretty reasonable cost. Add the X50 package and you’re into supercar territory without the supercar pricetag.

In the current market I don’t imagine there is much better performance value to be had than with a 996TT X50. Given that the 996TT didn’t suffer from some of the engine issues that have held down values of the standard 996 it will be interesting to see what happens with these cars down the line. For now, the 996 remains the red-headed stepchild of the 911 family, but we shouldn’t allow that to convince us that these cars aren’t worth our time. Any buyer whose primary interest is performance would do well to consider a car such as this one.

  1. very under appreciated cars…..guess the P-Guys really didn’t like the water cooled 911’s
    w/the X50 package this car is still VERY relevant…and prices for these are very reasonable especially when compared to ANY other vintage of 911 Turbo..
    these and the GT3 996’s did not suffer from the grenade motors so buy with comfort…after a good PPI.
    wonder what the reserve is?

  2. Glad the prior owner stuck those Porsche crest decals on the side otherwise i would never have known it was a Porsche. ….. ha!
