    40th Anniversary...

    I have a couple of questions. What all changed from a 2004 996 to a 2004 996 40th Anniversary other than the GT Silver, Special Interior, Badging, Lower Body Molding, Turbo Front End, and Chrome 18" Carrera's. Was anything internally changed? What was changed that is not visible to the eye that made this car different? I know its a collectors item and only 1,963 units were produced. I am just wondering if there is any more dirt on this car...Thanks!

    Re: 40th Anniversary...

    If I remember correctly the 40th annyversary comes with the powerkit...345bhp


    Re: 40th Anniversary...

    Did that have the 030 suspension like the anniversary Boxster?

    Re: 40th Anniversary...

    Sport suspension, X51 power package (345 hp), Xenons.

    You might want to check into sport shifter, sport exhaust, and a better stereo too.

    And a rear LSD differerntial.

    Re: 40th Anniversary...


    And supposedly only 1963 units were produced.

    Actually that was the initial plan, but I'm not sure it sold that well, so may be the factory didn't produce the 1963 units planned.

    Re: 40th Anniversary...

    Was there a reason for why it didn't sell too well? Thanks guys for the info so far...and about the stereo, it has Navigation with Bose.

    Re: 40th Anniversary...


    I think the main reason is, it was an expensive car because it is fully loaded with all the imaginable goodies ... and it was only a "narrow" body type.

    At the same time, Porsche released the highly desirable C2S and C4S versions.

    Re: 40th Anniversary...

    It was an expensive C2. Once Porsche gave up a little on the car they sold well.

    Yes, the only non-Turbo or GT car to be so equipped since 1999 in the US...

    Re: 40th Anniversary...

    And the only 996 truly deserving of an 'S' badge, though it didn't get one.

    A great car IMO. I'd get it and then get the 50th in 8 more years.
