2001 Porsche 996 911 Carrera Carbriolet Manual


  • Very low mileage car
  • Great history with recent service 
  • Convertible with desirable manual gearbox 
  • Factory body colour hard top 
  • Long MOT to November 2024 with no advisories 

The Appeal 

Where the air cooled 911 is primarily a classic to enjoy on high days and holidays, the later 996 is a much more versatile proposition. Its usability as a daily driver and weekend indulgence makes these cars perennially popular. 
The convertible adds an extra level of appeal, particularly when available with the optional factory hard top of this car. Those features mean that it can be enjoyed in all-weather and all-seasons.
And you will surely want to because the 996 is a typically entertaining Porsche. This car has the desirable 6spd manual gearbox that makes it particularly engaging.
But what makes it stand out from the 996 crowd is the exceptionally low mileage. Just 24,000 miles from new, in the hands of just three registered keepers. The condition reflects that sparing use and is confirmed by a long, advisory-free MOT to November 2024. As the weather improves it looks ready to enjoy.
