1999 Porsche 911 Carrera
1999 Porsche 911 Carrera
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 consignment, the classic 911 Carrera from 1999 which could be your average 170MPH daily driver. The first year of the water cooled flat 6 engine, and a killer audio system, some interesting wrap which can be removed if you desire, and what a great way to commute back and forth to work!
This sports car is wrapped in a digital urban camo which sports about 50 shades of gray, so I'm coming up with a safe word! (How about “buckle up buttercup?!!”). It has an interesting semi gloss finish to it, and honestly looks fab. I can imagine myself trolling the main streets of the city where onlookers will definitely turn their heads to see exactly what is going on with this wrap. Beautifully integrated bumpers melt into the aero look and design of this German sportster. Black trimmings for the windows and a nice tail fin, along with tinted windows and it looks like it is ready to go to war and it is not planning on losing. A sunroof is cut into the top for some added extra airflow. On back badging has been blackened and the quad exhaust that overlaps the pipes at the tops is an interesting design detail. 19-inch 5 spoke black powder coated wheels are wrapped by low profile rubber on all 4 corners. Noted under the wrap is excellently preserved black paint.
A swing of the doors and we can see high back sleekly styled black leather covered bucket seats in front, and the afterthought of 2 more seats in back which form themselves around the center hump. This hump races forward and creates the sleek center console. This is covered in plastic that looks like brushed metal finish and houses the shift lever and some window toggles as it makes its way up the dash. Here we note more faux brushed metal look framing the climate controls with their digital readout, and a killer Pioneer stereo system complete with a Rockford Fosgate amp, speakers all around, and a subwoofer. In front of the driver is a series of round gauges clustering in overlapping form very much like the exhaust pipes on the back, so carrying that motif through to the dash. Black carpeting floods the floors and above is a nice headliner with the sunroof cutout.
A water-cooled 3.4 liter flat 6-cylinder mill with a Vance Hines air intake attached is shoehorned into the rear of this car. It has EFI and a 6-speed manual transmission with a 3.44 final drive ratio. Headers are installed. All this produces 296hp which is plenty to get you up and running…fast!
Up on the lift we see some slightly corroded aluminum cast suspension parts, solid steel plates for the ground effects, a black center skid plate. and nicely preserved independent suspension with power disc brakes on all 4 corners.
This flat 6 lit right up and off to the test track where we drove around and ran it through its paces but no one saw us…I guess due to the camo?! But I digress to excellent performance, snappy acceleration and more power than you'll probably ever need. All worked perfectly save for the backup lights which our photographer noticed were not on when we backed into the photo studio for its beauty session.
Original black now urban shades of gray digital camo, this aero sports car can definitely be a daily driver or just enjoyed sporadically, but if you do this, you will be hankering for more warfare once you get accustomed to the performance. Guns loaded and you go Rambo!
