    We were looking for a 996 to take on PCA drives and looked for about 9 months to find a low mileage, preferably single owner 996. My first preference was a C4S, but that was not to be. We ended up with a 2003 targa, with full leather, about 40,000 km (about 25,000 miles) and single owner. We have had the car since 2018. It now has a double din, wireless Apple Carplay (Alpine). All else is stock.

    Dogs don’t have snooze buttons…

    996 Turbo Sunrise

    Bentley, my runt-rescue, normally wakes me up around 6:00 AM. Today it was 5:00 AM. Ugh…

    I tried to act like I was still asleep, but his whining told me he needed to go out. I stumbled out of bed and headed to the back door. Yup, he had to go. Now I’m up and wide awake. Standing at my rear window, I watched the dark night’s hues fade to baby blues. The sun was coming up. If I left soon, I could go for a short twisty back roads drive before meeting the guys for Porsche breakfast. I whistled for Bentley, as if mentally telling him to hurry up.

    Moments later, my 996 Turbo barked to life, disturbing my slumbering neighbors, I’m sure. Rolling out my neighborhood to the road less traveled, I stopped. In front of me was the reason everyone should get up early, the sunrise. I parked my car and snapped THIS picture. I was alone on the road. No birds. No wind. No other cars. Just me.

    I slowly walked back to my car, enjoying my private moment. Once in I closed the door, smiled, rolled my windows down, selected a 1st gear – and punched it.

    Thank you Bentley, for getting me up early.

    – Stan

    That is a GREAT photograph!  I see you appear to have upgraded the headlight and perhaps changed the exhaust.  Have you owned your turbo for long?  Have you made lots of other modifications?
