a turbo Porsche 996 with over a million kilometers on the clock!

This model of 911 Turbo type 996 wreaks havoc on this model’s reputation for poor reliability. Indeed, this one has just exceeded a million kilometers and it is still dashing!

After owning a few Honda’s, Tom Thalmann bought the object of his dreams in 2003: a Porsche New 911 Turbo. He uses this car every day and travels about 150 km every day. Far from there to spare, this American rides in all weathers, even when it snows, and participates in a few track days every year. To keep her in top form, he does not neglect any interview and do not hesitate to bring the oil changes together, even if it means doing one every month!


German quality

Totaling 647,000 miles (1.04 million km) today, the Porsche required several clutches, turbos and some transmission repairs. The consumables the most replaced are the tires (every 3-4 months). Until now, the engine has been rebuilt at 616,000 km due to a loss of compression in a cylinder. A longevity which confirms the seriousness in the design of Porsches.
