Porsche 996 Turbo (X50) Tiptronic S cabriolet 2005

Porsche 996 Turbo (X50) Tiptronic S cabriolet 2005



33,855 miles

One of only 127 Turbo cabriolets made for the 2005 model year.

Significantly, this one has the additional X50 Performance Pack factory upgrade which, at the time, cost an extra £8,700 on top of your £100,000 order!

The 3.6 litre M96/70 E engine, a derivative of the legendary Mezger unit found in the 911 GT1 Le Mans racer and 996 GT3, received  larger turbos together with uprated intercoolers and exhaust system as well as a strengthened transmission. The finished product gave an outright power increase from 420 to 450 bhp and an increase in boost pressure from 0.8 to 0.9 bar. Maximum torque increased by more than 10% to 620 Nm.

This is why an X50 is prized; it is not a simple chip upgrade, it is a full factory system resulting in a cabriolet that can reach 187 mph and crack 0-62 mph in just 4.6 seconds.

The 997 was already available in 2005, but if you wanted a Turbo, the 996 was your only option.


  • Seal grey metallic with a black hood and 18″ Turbo II alloys with full colour Porsche crest centre caps.
  • Full black leather interior extending across the seats, dashboard, door trims and sun visors with aluminium trim for the handbrake and Tiptronic gear selector.
  • Heated, electrically adjustable Comfort seats with memory function for the driver’s side and the Porsche crest embossed on to the head restraints.

Serviced in 2008 at 9,175 miles, 2011 at 17,631 miles, 2013 at 23,450 miles, 2015 at 26,712 miles and 2017 at 29,024 miles. We will now carry out a full inspection and major service (including spark plugs and brake fluid) in our workshop before selling with our Silver Warranty.

This is a genuine drop-top Supercar, outrageously fast when required, but refined and docile enough to use everyday should you so wish. With the added security of all wheel drive it is suitable for summer and winter road trips.

It’s not much different now to when it first rolled out of the Stuttgart factory……apart of course, from the price, which nowadays sets it as one very good value Porsche!
