2000 Porsche 911 Cabriolet
2000 Porsche 911 Cabriolet
Carrera is a Spanish word and stands for “race”. Porsche started using the name on the 356 series, to show homage to Carrera Panamericana, a border-to-border race held in Mexico from 1950 to 1954. The Carrera name has been added to many racing and race-ready models since 1955: the 356, 904, 906, 911 up to 1977 and the 924. In 1984, with the 911 G-model being in production for a decade already, Porsche's marketing department started using the Carrera name for a basic model to boost sales. The name was also used for the Carrera GT supercar.
For your consideration, a very special Porsche Carrera Cabriolet, 996 pampered, and well maintained by all the expert hands available, a few upgrades, and yes it goes like hell! Gorgeous Savannah Beige interior full leather jackets, and Meteor Gray exterior, RSR oversize wheels never curbed, and the drop topper, and life is very good, for a great value, you can be in the seat of a 911. And a mere 39,540 original miles.
Barely visible, a transparent “bra” protects the aerodynamic front of the car, integrated bumper, gracefully sloping headlights, and the smooth front hood, all bathed in Porsche Meteor Gray. All gaps are laser straight and tolerance is all excellent to boot. The bulbous rear of the vehicle, works with the black canvas drop top to form the sloping rear, also with a seamless rear body matching bumper complete with the sculpted taillights sounding either edge of the rear quarters. A hidden rear spoiler automatically rises to help with the handling when up to speed and fits nicely into the engine lid. Big RSR snowflake wheels are wrapped in Lizetti low profile all season rubber on all 4 corners.
Savannah Beige leather with just a nice touch of some break in wear covers the high back buckets, emblazoned with embossed Porsche badges in the upper headrests portions. These front a curvaceous sexy dash with some interplay of black panels and cascading circular white faced gauges. A Sirius enabled radio, along with AM/FM functions can keep you entertained on those long fast commutes via the Autobahn or your local 4 lane interstate track. Take liberties with the speed as this car is enabled with front and rear radar detection, cruise control, memory seats, power windows, power locks, and power top. Matching pristine Savannah Beige carpet floods the floors and remains amazingly clean. Noted is a black top cover which adds to the aero look when the top is in the down position.
Shoehorned into the rear of the car is a 3.4 liter V6 which has had the IMS bearing redux performed. Chiseled stainless steel exhaust snakes its way to the rear bottom of the sportswear. A 6-speed manual transmission is bolted on, and this is a naturally aspirated car.
With a 95 percent coverage of ground effects panels, only the wheels are visible from the bottom. The panels are in very good condition, slight road dirt, and some scrapes on the lower front cowl of the bodywork. Rockers are solid, and big 4-wheel disc brakes are present.
I could say a good time was had by all, but in reality, it was only me alone on the test track. Here this car has unlimited acceleration, smooth quick braking, and rail like handling. Steering is snappy and responsive, and this car can cruise all day on the highway. All functions were flawlessly working diligently including the glass rear window top.
Only maintained by experts, sporty RSR wheels, Lizetti low profile tires, big discs all around, and the radar detection to keep you safe from the poh poh, take all the liberties you want, and delight in the fact you are behind the wheel of a classic 911/996..you big shot you!
