2004 Porsche 996 40th Anniversary
We are excited to have this rare and very collectable modern classic Porsche 911 in stock. The 996 40th Anniversary, as the name suggests, celebrated 40 years of the Porsche 911, and was sold in 2003 and 2004. A total of 1963 were built, in a nod to the year that the 911 was introduced, and we believe only around 200 came to the UK. This is car number 1070.
It is finished in gleaming GT Silver Metallic (a shade that was previously only used on the Carrera GT supercar). At the front it features the large intakes from the 996 Turbo with unique body-coloured slats. Down the side are Aerokit-style sill extensions, while the rear end boasts a “911 40 Jahre” badge. Chrome-finished 18-inch wheels complete the look.
Inside, is a pair of Dark Grey Natural Leather, heated seats with driver’s memory, a numbered “911 40 Jahre” badge, a GT Silver centre console, Bose sound pack, Alcantara headlining, silver bezel surrounds and unique ‘911’ sill plates.
The icing on the cake is the X51 Power Pack which takes the engine output to 345bhp, 25bhp more than standard – that’s second only to the GT3 in terms of naturally aspirated 996 power. The Sports suspension is lowered by 10mm and firmed up to improve the handling, aided by PSM (Porsche Stability Management). All of which makes the 40th Anniversary a fantastic car to drive.
This superb example also features a sunroof, cruise control, PCM2 (Porsche Communication Management) with sat-nav and a rear wiper.
With just 53,200 miles on the clock, the Porsche benefits from a well-documented main dealer service history. The last service was by Porsche Guildford in July this year, together with a front suspension overhaul, and the car’s not been used since. A new clutch was fitted at 49,920 miles. New brake pads and discs have just been fitted, front and rear.
This is an opportunity to acquire a rare and collectable 911 40th Anniversary Edition. The previous 30th Anniversary cars have rocketed in value, and we wouldn’t be surprised if these follow suit.

Philip Raby says: “This is one of my favourite Porsches. The PowerKit makes an astonishing difference to the engine’s characteristics, while the Sports suspension takes the 996’s handling to a new level. Add to that the 40th’s rarity and unique trim, you have a winning combination!”
