1999 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Back in 2021, I took a look at a string of Aerokit-equipped 996 Carreras, culminating in this neat Mirage Metallic example:

Even priced in the high 30k range, these are still some of the most affordable 911s you can get into. Today’s example is a ’99 with more mileage, but it’s got the correct-for-early-GT3 Sport Design wheels and it’s a bunch cheaper. Is it a good deal?

You either are or are not a fan of the Aerokit. Personally I really like it, mostly because it gives you 90% of the GT3 experience for 25% of the price (or less, as we’ll soon see). White is also neat, as it’s both the German national racing color and a lot more rare to see on 996s than the typical silvers. The Sport Designs are a huge plus. Inside there’s a sea of black, which is rather unfortunate, but it’s also in relatively good shape – indeed, the car itself looks to be pretty nice overall. Downsides? There’s obviously no mention on the IMS – or any other work, for that matter. It may have had paint work on done on the back, and it needs some PDR work. It looks like the exhaust is aftermarket, for better or worse. And while I said I do like the Aerokit, I’m not the biggest fan of the rear spats and it can look a bit out of place when the car sits too high, as it does here. Still, assuming the carbon and Aerokit bits were factory options, this car is a rare combination of boxes ticked, is in pretty good condition, and is a 911 in the 20k range. There aren’t many fish in that pool.

  1. No mention of IMS because it likely doesn’t need it. The internet has overplayed the whole IMS issue. And higher mileage cars like this don’t typically suffer from that issue. It’s the low mileage cars to watch out for. Also, can we take a moment to appreciate how carbon fiber ages? I always love the yellow-ed look.

  2. Well I’m the new owner of this rig, it will be delivered this week!! Woohoo!!
