Remaining under the care of its original owner, this Turbo has been beautifully preserved with less than 4k miles showing on the odometer and is now being offered for auction out of New York.

Derived from the 911 GT1 Le Mans race car, the 3.6L twin-turbocharged Mezger engine delivers up to 420 HP to all four wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. Using motorsport technology and a true dry-sump design, this engine resists oil surge and is unburdened by IMS bearing issues typically associated with the 996 generation. Acceleration from 0-60 MPH is accomplished in approximately 4 seconds with a top speed of nearly 190 MPH. The brake system consists of red-painted 4-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers paired with ventilated, cross-drilled 330mm discs front and rear. Porsche Stability Management (PSM) with ABS 5.7, ASR, and ABD also came standard on the Turbo. A full service and inspection were last completed by New Country Porsche of Clifton Park in August of 2020 at 3,759 miles.
This sale will include a clean title. A one-owner 6-speed 996 Turbo with less than 4k miles traveled from new, this outstanding 2002 example makes an excellent investment as well as a fine addition to any Porsche collection.
