Equipped with a twin-turbocharged Mezger engine paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, this 2001 Porsche 996 Turbo is finished in the rarely seen color of Wimbledon Green Metallic over a Black leather interior. It was originally configured with equipment for the German market and was factory-designated as a press vehicle (option code 740) featuring Exclusive leather trim throughout the cabin as well as aluminum inlays for the shifter and brake handle. This Turbo was recently imported from Sweden to Italy where it is now being offered for auction showing just over 91k kilometers (approx. 56.5k miles) on the odometer and accompanied by a Porsche Classic certification. 

The 996 Turbo features wider bodywork compared to a contemporary Carrera model and is distinguished by integrated side air intakes, a unique bumper design, side skirts, and a speed-activated rear spoiler. This 2001 example is finished in Wimbledon Green Metallic, an exceptionally rare and sought-after color named for Porsche’s sponsorship of the Wimbledon tennis championships. Red brake calipers are mounted behind 18” 911 Turbo alloy wheels dressed in Pirelli P-Zero Rosso tires. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a recent inspection from the Porsche Classic Italia Department which describes the car as being totally original with no evidence of prior accidents or repairs.

The cabin features Black leather upholstery with optional supple leather seats and Exclusive extended leather trim pieces including the dashboard trim strip, instrument surround, air vent brackets, center console, defroster trim, speaker covers, and ignition lock surround. Other specifications include optional aluminum inlays for the shifter and brake handle, heated seats with adjustable lumbar support, cruise control, an electric sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, a telephone handset, and Porsche Communication Management (PCM).

A twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter Mezger flat-six engine delivers up to 415 HP and 415 lb.-ft of torque to all four wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. Acceleration from 0-60 MPH takes place in approximately 4 seconds and stopping power comes from fixed 4-piston brakes paired with 330mm cross-drilled discs at each corner. A major service is said to have been completed in August 2017 and the most recent maintenance performance in May 2022 included a standard service with new spark plugs. Service records are provided for reference in the gallery as well as a recent 111-point inspection by the Classic Department at Centro Porsche Roma.

This sale will include, owner’s manuals, a window sticker, a toolkit, an air pump, a spare tire, service records, and a clean title.

    any know rough cost to get this to the east coast of US with extra steps involved. Does the extra step(s) add 1k, 2K or more to the normal cost to import/ship from Europe to the US.

    I knew i was right. Facts came out. Great car just a bit more leg work.

    @ViperSSD I do agree that it is old enough where nothing will need to be modified on the car for the EPA standards. If it's on the Show/Display list for the NHTSA then that shouldn't be any problem aside from paperwork.

    I believe it's old enough that the EPA doesn't matter, it's more about NHTSA.

    Importing track cars requires the following
    Acquire a letter from the vehicle’s manufacturer that clearly states it was made as a racing vehicle.
    On arrival, check Box 8 of the HS-7 Declaration that will be filed with customs. This box states that the vehicle was not made for use on public roads, so it does not have to comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety, Bumper, and Theft Protection Standards.
    Make a copy of the letter from the car’s manufacturer and attach it to the HS-7 document that will be handed over to customs.

    @viperssd I would shoot Coleman an email. He was very quick to respond and spoke to me on the phone as a courtesy. He told me as long as it was only going to be used for track or "off road" use then EPA wouldn't be involved and modifications aren't needed. Imagine the EPA getting involved in everyone's track car? They'd ruin it like they have the public road cars. I highly doubt the restriction is on importing and not registration. Maybe there is an extra step to import it for non road use and then you have to do some other step before you register it for show/display if it's already imported into the country? I'm not sure but with this car being so close to the 25 year mark, I'd import right away and store it in your garage until the 25 year mark personally. Drive it around the neighbourhood to keep it running every couple of months and keep it on a battery tender.

  • ViperSSD (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @guitarnyc I thought you couldn't register it as a show car if it's already been petitioned and approved for conversion. Also genuinely interested...., I was also under the impression that the restriction is not on registration but on the importation, so you cannot import it and store it in a warehouse in the US until it hits the 25yr mark.

  • guitarnyc (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    When I was looking into to importing a 2004 car, I spoke to Coleman Sachs at https://www.vehicleimportservice.com/ He specializes in importing cars and for most of his career was a lawyer at NHTSA so I trust his opinion. He suggested I purchase the car and bring it over for non road use first. Just put it in the garage for one year. This avoids the 20 year EPA rules and then it doesn't need to be modified. After it's over 20 years old I can register it under show/display because it's on the list that someone posted below. This means it doesn't need to be modified under the EPA's 20 year rule but still needs to follow the show/display limits until it's over 25 years old. After that 25 year window it can be registered as a regular street car. This avoided any of those silly EPA modifications and costs.

    I reached out to the importer, specifically JK Technologies (https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2000/08/07/00-19922/notice-of-receipt-of-petition-for-decision-that-nonconforming-2001-porsche-911-turbo-passenger-cars), that filed the original application to import these and that was later approved. They have a fairly significant list of modification and replacement parts as part of the application. They told me to expect a fairly high cost of modifications and to basically recommended to just store it till 2025, at which point it can be imported regardless.

    I'm honestly taken aback enough by the color and the condition to consider this route

  • vertythirty (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    For anyone asking about import to the USA, here is direct from the NHTSA website. The 2001 911 Turbo is a nonconforming vehicle that is eligible for importation. With any competent importer, you will have no issues.

    @luis.seneriz figure 8 to 10k depending on the shipping ports, final price of the car and post port shipping

  • luis.seneriz (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Anyone has a clue how much will it cost to ship this car to the states? Definitely a skittles color car.

    I was looking into purchasing a 996 GT3RS...from I believe the seller here. I researched a lot about the importing process. If it's 20 years or older then the EPA doesn't need to get involved to modify the car in any way. To import the car for show/display (2500 mile a year limits etc) then it either needs to be on the list of approved vehicles or you need to get it approved. This car being a press vehicle might easily get approved or already approved, I'm not sure. The 25 year rule for show/display is all you need to worry about here. After 25 years has passed then you can register this as a street car. That's the general breakdown that I learned through speaking with many people on my hunt for a 996 GT3RS. And I'm still looking if anyone knows of one lol.

    @Sonnypatel Please if you are not sure of what you are saying don't write anything. You only risk "scaring" a potential buyer with incorrect information

  • Sonnypatel (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @ Devil_Dog_Ultra

    Its not my intention to misinform, I actually speak from experience. I am not entirely certain this is not a car Porsche North America could issue a compliance letter and I encourage you to check instead of taking my word for it. They only issue letter for Canadian cars that are in US spec, by far the cluster being the lowest priority item. I am 99% certain any buyer will need to engage a seasoned importer to undergo the process, its not as simple as picking it up at port, and filling up a few docs. That is also again upto the prerogative of the buyer to plan ahead .

    See my previous post and review in further detail because you did clearly miss some of my main points.

  • Devil_Dog_Ultra (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @Sonnypatel this is completely false. I have imported many cars at this point. With KMh clusters weird European items and none US spec. Main concern is always emission set by EPA and DOT for the U.S. variant (this is an issue for diesel models without def) and safety rating similar to US spec. All is provided by manufacture ie. BMW, Porsche, Mercedes they will give a written letter for the vin within one day of contacting them. If someone wins this car they can have it on US soil in less than 2 months (without trade line constraints)

    @Alraf From what I have seen and from what the Porsche technicians have certified, the car has not had any accidents. It was probably painted due to simple scratches

  • Youngtimer_cars (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @Alraf From what I know the 996 for the European market, unlike the RS4, were almost identical to those for the US market.
    Do you know for sure that all those changes need to be made or do you simply assume?
    Furthermore, we are talking about a unique car, there is no other possibility to have it in this color and with this configuration

  • Alraf 1 month, 3 weeksago

    Any accident history?

  • Sonnypatel (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago


    Yes the car is on a list of exceptions to import however that same list also contains the Audi RS4 Avant. The car infamous for costs associated with bringing the car into us compliance during the bonded period by the importer.

    Meaning yes this car can come into the us and may be freely imported if it is brought into US compliance. Which may include simple things like changing of the cluster, exhaust, tune , etc. Theres more complicated things like changing out glass, bumpers, etc.

    So all in all its a lot more of a process .

  • Hnguyen7986 1 month, 3 weeksago

    Wow! Stunning car and color. Would love to win this, fly out there to drive it along the Italian countryside and then ship it back to the states!

  • Devil_Dog_Ultra (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    This vehicle is super easy to import mainly just cost of freight and container and an import bond. Idk how the trade routes are right now cause of the war but ok take a guess full shipping and handling to a East coast port about 3500

  • Youngtimer_cars (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    @Sonnypatel I think that is important that the car is included in "NHTSA List of Approved Vehicles" so should be easy imported it in US.
    We could support the new owner for logistic process (we could delivery it to naval port) but I suggest to contact a company specialized in importation.
    If you need additional informations don't hesitate to contact us

  • Sonnypatel (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    How can we import this @seller ? doesn't the 25 year rule apply?

  • lowtone (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    stunning...now to learn about importing from Italy.
