In 1999, Porsche celebrated the turn of the century with a special edition – the 996 “Millennium Edition”. Offered as a a special edition of the 996 for the model year 2000, the 911 Millennium edition was based on the Carrera 4 coupé and was pretty rare, with only 911 cars made.
Based exclusively on the Carrera 4, the “Millennium Edition” was limited to 911 examples and was based exclusively on the wide bodied Carrera 4. This special edition was finished in Violet Chromaflair paint, which, depending on the light changes from dark violet to light green and is quite spectacular to look at. That really is the key to the Millennium Edition 911, the unique paintwork. Another feature uncommon to 911’s is the standard 18” ‘Turbo Twist’ wheels finished in chrome.
On the inside was a natural caramel-colored leather interior and dark burr maple trim. The car was available with a Tiptronic or six-speed manual gearbox. A number plate on the center console and a unique “911” badge on the engine lid and lettering on the door sills make this special edition easy to identify from other base Carrera models
