996 In Blue: 1999 Porsche 911 Convertible

The Porsche 911 is an iconic classic imbued with a finely tuned suspension, classically understated good looks and raucous sounding rear mounted flat-6 engines – a combination that is seldom imitated.  The 996 was a 911 that was faster, more comfortable, and better than the previous generation, but of course the purists and naysayers complained about the changes to watercooling…etc etc. Ironically, for the first time in Porsche history, they were correct…perhaps.  Find this 1999 Porsche 911 996 offered for $14500 in Redwood City, CA via craigslist.

cylinders: 6 cylinders 

drive: rwd 

fuel: gas 

odometer: 103000

Clean title. Records from 33k miles. Dark blue metallic color underneath a fresh vinyl wrap of gloss blue. You can remove the wrap if you prefer the darker color. Just peel a corner and pull it off! Super easy to remove. Excellent condition paint underneath it. No oil leaks, no water leaks from the top. No grinds or pop outs. Great condition! The previous owner was a 70yr old guy who could no longer drive manual. I just put a several thousand in maintenance into it.



I have two sets of wheels for it. The 18″ silver turbo wheels will be no extra ($0). 19″ Powder coated black lobster claws will be $1000 since I just put new tires on them.



I was going to keep it, but selling because I am purchasing a home. My loss is your gain. Text me anytime.


I will consider trades.
