15 year old original rubbers. Wow.
All that power and potential, and it just sat and sat.....


I hate to say it but all of that ^ is what some serious collectors want. A sculpture that was once an automobile.

It says Turbo Power Kit on the window sticker, just like mine.

Thanks! I donĺt get the hate for the 996 lineage. I think 10 years from now people will look at it in a very different light. They already are.

From an old post:

1. After studying several 996 Turbo stickers I find that:

2. No more than 3 rows of options are ever printed. (not including the Porsche Exclusives (09991, 00051, etc.)

3. The country code is in top-left position, then "X" options, then three-number options, all in alphabetical order, left to right, top to bottom. "X" option codes with 3 letters come before the numbered versions (X50, etc.)

4. Some option codes are different or missing from the COE. This was significant in my case.

5. Careful searching yielded great results.

My car is heavily optioned, so no 3-number options are even shown, threw me at first. Anyway hope this info can help someone.....

LazySumday car looks stellar. Really nice color. How was the interior?

The Tip X50 went for a pretty respectable number.

That is gorgeous. I am always amazed when I see a cab ordered without the heated seats. It's not like someone was worried about the cost.
