Part # for 996 Turbo shift knob

Recommended Posts

This caught my eye because the price seemed "low" <_< and I have been checking on part numbers/prices for the last few weeks.

Carnewal sells the "Turbo" model for a lot more, like $330....see here (click on 'Interior' then 'P96 Turbo' then 'Alu/Leather' shifter at the top).

I think 996.424.075.05 may be the plain 'ole OE 6-speed knob/boot (no Al-look trim, no "Turbo"). PET falls short here, because the descriptions aren't too great. They do list that part number in the 996T PET, but it's also listed in the 986 PET, for instance. I fished around in the TEQ PET, but still couldn't find a knob/boot that seems to be exclusive "Turbo" like the one that's being sought....send a note to Gert?

996.424.075.05.FGW Shift knob in Metropol Blue and Silver -- MSRP $199.18 (as of Feb 2006)

Hi Loren

Thanks for the assistance. How sure are you that this is the correct part # for the pictured part? Because I've been asking around and so far I have lots of different answers:

Sunset initially came up with 996.424.075.05.FGW ($170), but after talking to them further they think it might be 996-424-981-23-G10 ($399, but not listed in Metropol Blue).

Someone on the Rennlist 996 turbo board thinks it is 996-424-981-07-VRJ (MSRP $521).

Gert has it pictured on carnewal.com ($328), no part # listed.

I am thinking 996.424.075.05.FGW might be the 2001-2002 stock turbo shift knob (see photo) which is the same shift knob as on the regular Carreras. I think in 2003 the Turbo got a different shift know with the "Turbo" inscription.
