1999 Porsche Carrera Type 966
Why This Car Is Special
The performance looking 1999 Porsche 996 that we have here at
Skyway Classics is the internal designation for the 911 model
manufactured by Porsche from 1997 until 2006. The 996 had little in
common with its predecessor, with the first all new chassis
platform since the original 911 and a new water-cooled engine.
At its debut, the 996 featured the most significant change from the
classic 911 series, a water-cooled engine replacing the previously
Other major changes include a completely new platform having a
sleeker body with a more raked windshield, and a re-designed
interior along with new headlamps, and has been fine-tuned to
perfection, with an excellent suspension, motor and brakes.

The horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine produces a staggering
296 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque! It is high revving with a
redline at 7,300 RPM and is 11.3:1 compression. It is mated to a
6-speed manual transmission and of course is rear wheel drive.
Weighing in at almost exactly 3,000 lbs. this car has more than
enough power to get it moving quickly! 4-piston calipers on all 4
wheels provide more than enough stopping power.
The improved suspension is derived from the 928, and it's designed
to protect the car from oversteer while cornering at the limit.
Huge brake rotors and GT1-inspired monobloc yellow calipers make
slowing down even easier than accelerating.
It will accelerate from zero-to-60 in under five seconds with a top
speed of 172 mph and shows less than 69k miles on the
The custom interior cradles you with big bolsters holding you
firmly in place. Designed to comfort you and keep you in control,
no matter how close to out of control you and your Porsche are. But
on top of the race inspired bucket seats, you are surrounding by
opulence. Every power option you could want is at your
We love to row the gears the old-fashioned way with the 6-speed
manual transmission mounted in the factory console. It also has the
great Porsche dash that has been modified with the gold overlays
and still contain all the factory gauges, switches, and controls as
well as the stereo system.
The new design had to keep trademark 911 themes while becoming
entirely different. The car's profile, wheel arches and C-pillars
hark back to the original design while creating a fresh new
But make no mistake, this 911 back then was the most advanced car
Porsche has ever built, and it's one of the best sports cars in the
The 1999 911 we have here is wider than the previous ones from the
factory to compensate for the widened track. It's longer than the
previous car too, allowing for a more steeply raked windshield and
better aerodynamics; the 911 now slips through the wind tunnel with
a .30 coefficient of drag. The extra length also allows for a
longer wheelbase that improves handling and traction while allowing
engineers to design a more spacious interior.
This car has all the classic Porsche features. One glance and there
is no mistaking it for anything else. Dual exhaust tips exit the
rear below a power spoiler and Carrera badging with blacked out
aluminum alloy wheels match the blacked out hood and roof and flow
of the car very well, as do the sporty curvy side mirrors, yellow
brake calipers, and lower ground effects.
The 1999 Porsche 996 that we have here at Skyway Classics is
special because of the power and the ability to put that power to
the ground. The power to weight ratio on this car makes it stand
out from the crowd.
Our Porsche is ready to be a daily driver or a weekend warrior. It
has power, handling, and styling to spare.
