Sporting the rare Paint to Sample Color of Pastel Yellow, this 2001 Porsche 996 Turbo Coupe features a 3.6-liter Mezger engine paired with an optional 5-speed Tiptronic transmission. The Graphite Grey interior is complemented by Dark Burr Maple trim pieces, Alcantara headliner, and supple leather seats. It is believed to have been cared for by three prior owners and received an upgraded electric spoiler system and carbon fiber air intake fins as well as a new water pump. Driven approximately 38k miles from new, this Turbo is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.
This Coupe was ordered in Pastel Yellow (Q1), a rarely seen Paint to Sample color that was originally offered on the 993 and Boxster models during the late 1990s. The bodywork features Turbo-specific bumpers, integrated side air intakes, and a speed-activated rear spoiler. Aftermarket carbon fiber fins have been added to the side intakes and the rear spoiler hydraulics have been replaced with upgraded electronic components. Red-painted brake calipers are tucked behind 18” Turbo Twist wheels with colored Porsche-crested center caps and Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
The Graphite Grey full leather interior includes a matching Alcantara headliner, optional supple leather seats, and exclusive Dark Burr Maple trim for the handbrake and gear selector. The car was also optioned with a CD storage compartment, Porsche CDR-220 radio, and Tiptronic shifter buttons for the steering wheel. Some signs of wear are noted including light stretching at the base of the driver’s seat and degradation of the Graphite Grey soft-touch coatings. All gauges and accessories are said to remain fully functional.
Producing up to 415 HP, the twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter Mezger flat-six engine drives all four wheels by way of a 5-speed Tiptronic transmission. Acceleration from 0-60 MPH takes place in less than 5 seconds with a top speed of 185 MPH. Recent services carried out in preparation for the next owner included the installation of a new water pump and fresh fluids. Additional maintenance history is provided in the CARFAX report.
This sale will include a clean title.
