This 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo was originally sold in Canada and came factory-equipped with optional painted hardback Sport Seats, the Exclusive Carbon Fiber Interior Package, and aluminum instrument dials. It features a host of upgrades and modifications including Turbo S-style rear fenders with air scoops, a GT2-style rear wing, a custom front bumper, 18” three-piece wheels, JRZ coilovers and a rebuilt 3.8-liter engine with twin-plug heads, dual fuel injectors per cylinder, a custom fabricated intake plenum, Borg Warner K26 turbochargers, and an aftermarket intercooler, exhaust, and ECU. It was imported to the U.S. in 2003 and has since spent time in Florida, California, Arizona, and Virginia. This modified 993 Turbo is now being offered for auction out of New York with approximately 31k kilometers or 19k miles on the odometer.
This 993 Turbo was refinished in Polar Silver Metallic from its original Arena Red Metallic color and has been modified with Turbo S-style rear fenders with integrated air scoops as well as a fixed GT2-style rear wing with functional air intakes. Other details include aftermarket side skirts, a custom front bumper with an integrated spoiler, red brake calipers, carbon fiber mirror covers, a “Turbo S” rear model designation, a rear window wiper delete, and dual aftermarket tailpipes. It rides on a set of aftermarket 18” three-piece wheels with colored Porsche crest center caps and Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires. The seller notes some scratches and scuffs are present on the front bumper, rear spoiler, and fenders. A CARFAX report is provided in the gallery showing the vehicle was stolen in August 2006 and recovered the same month.
Inside, this 993 features a Marble Grey Leather to Sample (99) interior featuring factory-optional heated and power-adjustable Racing Style Sport Seats with painted body-color backrests. Other factory options include the Exclusive Carbon Fiber Interior Package, metal door sills with Turbo model insignias, aluminum instrument dials, a carbon fiber and leather-covered steering wheel, and carbon fiber and aluminum inlays for the shifter and brake handle. Modifications include red seatbelts, an aftermarket boost controller, drilled aluminum pedal covers, a radio delete cover, a Stack Ltd tachometer, and a Stack Ltd boost pressure gauge mounted in place of the clock (relocated to the center console). The seller notes some scuffs are present on the driver’s seatback, a bolt-in roll cage was previously installed, and the original carbon fiber trimmed steering wheel was been custom refurbished. The rear seats are included with the sale.
The twin-turbocharged flat-six engine has been rebuilt to a 3.8-liter displacement and modified with upgraded internals, twin plug cylinder heads, a custom fabricated intake plenum, an aftermarket ECU, and quad fuel rails for dual fuel injectors per cylinder. It also features upgraded twin Borg Warner K26 turbochargers, twin SARD blowoff valves, an aftermarket intercooler, and an aftermarket exhaust system with headers and dual external wastegates. All four wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission modified with an external oil cooler. The suspension includes adjustable JRZ coilovers and upgraded sway bars. The seller indicates an oil and filter change was completed along with a general inspection in preparation for sale.
This sale will include a clean Arizona title and a Porsche Production Specifications Certificate.
