The 996 Turbo debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September 1999. It went on sale in the US in summer of 2000 as a 2001 model. The turbo was powered by a water-cooled Twin turbocharged/intercooled 3.6L H-6 derived from the 1998 LeMans winning GT-1 car. The engine produced 415 hp at 6000 rpm and 415 lbs./ft. of torque. The 996 turbo featured all-wheel drive and was available with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed Tiptronic. The turbo had revised styling and a wider stance than the naturally aspirated 996 Carreras along with new bi-xenon headlamps. The turbo also came with VarioCam Plus as well as stability management. In the US, the rear spoiler would automatically rise at 76mph and would lower at 36mph. The turbo had revised bodywork to allow airflow to 3 radiators up front and to accommodate 18” wheels and tires.
In 2002, the turbo offered an X50 option would include larger turbochargers (K24 turbos) and intercoolers, a revised ECU and exhaust which raised output to 450HP. Other features introduced in 2002, was a glove box, center mounted cup-holders, an optional Bose stereo and rain-sensing wipers.
In 2003, Porsche North America restated their horsepower numbers due to SAE changes. The turbo was still listed at 415 hp however the X50 option was now listed at 444 hp.
