2003 Porsche 996 Turbo X50 6-Speed

Up for auction is this 2003 Porsche 996 Turbo X50 6-speed finished in Seal Grey Metallic over a Graphite Grey full leather interior.  Powered by a legendary 3.6 L twin turbocharged Mezger engine, this 996 features the highly sought after X50 Turbo Power Kit which brings the performance up to the same level as the later 996 Turbo S.  Further enhanced by Fabspeed headers, a Fabspeed tune kit and a stage 2 clutch, this 2003 Turbo is now being offered with a branded rebuilt title by its seller in Connecticut while showing approximately 56k miles on the odometer.

The Seal Grey Metallic paint is noted to be in good overall condition and the seller indicates that the front and rear bumpers have been professionally refinished.  Some small cracks have also been noted on the rear taillight lenses as well as some yellowing on the headlights (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery).  This Turbo rides on aftermarket Victor Equipment 19” Le Mans wheels which are currently dressed in Pirelli P-Zero tires bearing approximately 1k miles of use.  The factory Turbo Twist wheels will also be included with the sale.

Inside, the cabin is appointed with Graphite Grey full leather as well as supple leather front and rear seats with Porsche crested front headrests.  Other exclusive factory options include heated front seats and a Seal Grey Metallic painted center console.   The sound system has also been upgraded with a Kenwood deck and a Boston Acoustic amplifier. All gauges and accessories are stated to be in good working order, although the rear spoiler occasionally causes a fault code, but remains fully operational.

This 996 is equipped with highly revered 3.6 L twin turbocharged flat-six Mezger engine featuring the factory optional X50 Power Kit which adds a revised tune as well as larger turbochargers and intercoolers.  Rated at 444 HP stock, all four wheels are driven by way of a desirable 6-speed manual transmission allowing for a factory 0-60 time of approximately 4 seconds.  This example has also been upgraded with Fabspeed headers, a Fabspeed tune kit, a stage 2 clutch and a performance air filter which provide for increased power output and sound.  After being issued a salvage title in California following collision damage in 2013, this 996 eventually made its way to Vermont where it was repaired and issued a branded rebuilt title. Recent service items include a new water pump, new suspension components and new spark plugs as well as a fluid and filter service.  The seller confirms this 996 Turbo to be in excellent driving order, only in need of a new battery.

This sale will include one key, the factory Turbo Twist wheels, owners’ books and a branded rebuilt title.  Highlighting an X50 Power Kit, 6-speed manual transmission and additional performance upgrades, this 996 Turbo offers an incredible value.

    @G964 the original exhaust is on the car , it should not have a problem with the E test

  • G964 (registered bidder) 4 weeksago

    Hi is this car able to pass emissions? Listing says car is in CT but it is clearly registered in VT. Is car unable to pass CT emissions testing with the Fabspeed exhaust? Are the factory cats installed?

    This car has stories, and not of the good variety. Why would anyone list a car like this here where it's sure to attract additional scrutiny? Flip the story cars on eBay.

  • brontosaurus (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    I really don't think we're getting the full story here. I'm fairly certain the rear bumper was replaced and the car sustained damage in the rear too. Additionally, why are the fender liners loose in the passenger rear, and completely missing in the passenger front? What kind of hack body shop would skimp on that?

  • JustinO (seller) 1 monthago

    @Ace2777 yes as pictured the car needs a new hood latch mount , it works properly but was pried open at auction block prior to myself acquiring the car , please feel free to see the car in person thank you

  • Ace2777 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @ JustinO
    Can you provide any insight into pic 31 the plate between the bumper and the latch seems severely damaged.

  • JustinO (seller) 1 monthago

    @brontosaurus the car is a 03 , it’s been garaged for 6.5 years and as stated the bumper cover is not original , as stated the car had a minor front end collision and has a rebuilt title , if you are uncomfortable with a rebuilt title then look elsewhere but trolling ads to attempt to devalue a car you have no plans on purchasing is behind rude good luck in the search

  • brontosaurus (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @JustinO Sorry, I find that awfully hard to believe. Picture 11/47. At minimum the hood and bumper are misaligned. If the hood is off, the pass fender is likely off as well. The bumper is also clearly a different color than the rest of the vehicle and will require a repaint. The headlights are also severely yellowed for the mileage of the car. Either the headlights were taken from a different vehicle, or this car sat outside for a large portion of it's life.

    @brontosaurus unfortunately I don’t understand what you see ? The only thing replaced was a front bumber cover and it’s a OE part the car is 100% strait and paneled original

  • brontosaurus (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Looks pretty tweaked up front. Why don't the panels fit any better?

  • JustinO (seller) 1 monthago

    @Villkain The bumper cover was installed and painted by a local body shop , the car has no fluid leaks and runs and drives like it should , The water pump , tune up and alignment were performed buy a certified Audi , VW Porsche technician and he also verified while performing the alignment there is zero frame damage . This car also passed a stringent DMV inspection . There are no Porsche dealers in New London county feel free to see the car in person

  • Villkain (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @JustinO Hello, I would respectfully disagree the ad tells us everything about the car. If I may offer some advice to maximize your sale. It would be good to have a PPI done by a Porsche specialist and posted before end of bidding. Specifically addressing some obvious questions. Is frame perfectly straight? DME over rev report good? Are coolant pipes pinned? Any fluids leaking? How detailed are service records up to this point? Did you personally repair the car or was it done at a qualified repair shop? Was this a track car or just personal driving?

  • JustinO (seller) 1 monthago

    @guitarguyyakov Hello , the ad tells you everything about the car , the car is in great running condition and all flaws are mentioned . We do not have before pics i have owned the car for almost 7 years and only did a few minor repairs upon purchase . best of luck

  • guitarguyyakov (registered bidder) 1 monthago
