This 2003 Porsche 996 Turbo Coupe received an extensive list of track-focused upgrades and modifications complementing its legendary twin-turbocharged Mezger engine. Finished in Seal Grey Metallic, this 6-speed example features various parts from Dundon Motorsports and Spec German including GT2 intercoolers and a Sachs Stage 2 clutch, a COBB tune, Ohlins coilovers, a big brake kit, pinned coolant lines, and much more. Sold new in California, this Turbo has since made its way to Washington where it is now being offered for auction with approximately 106k miles on the odometer.
This Turbo comes finished in Seal Grey Metallic and features Turbo-specific bumpers, widened fenders, and side air intakes. Optimized for aerodynamics, this 996 has been modified with a front diffuser, front canards, intercooler scoop inlays, and a 997 Turbo-style fixed rear wing painted Guards Red. A set of 18” aftermarket wheels come dressed in Nitto NT01 tires mounted approximately 3 months ago. The seller adds that this example has always been garage-kept during their ownership, and clear paint protection film has been applied to the front half of the hood. Some minor signs of road wear are noted, and detailed images are provided in the gallery. This example has been used for local track days and for instructing new track students. The seller notes an OEM front window replacement was carried out in 2016, and the CARFAX report shows minor cosmetic damage during that same year.
The cabin is appointed with Black leather which covers the dashboard, door inserts, steering wheel, shift boot, and brake lever. A set of OMP driver and passenger bucket seats have been installed along with 6-point harnesses. Other features include black carpet floor mats, automatic climate control, and an electric sunroof. The seller adds that all gauges and accessories are working properly, and the spoiler error light temporarily appears due to the modified rear wing.
A twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter Mezger flat-six engine sends power to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. Approximately 3 years ago, the engine is said to have been exchanged with the correct replacement showing 62k miles. This engine was reportedly refreshed along with the transmission, including replacements of the A/C compressor, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, coils, drive belts, and fuel filter. With increased performance output by a COBB tune, the dyno test showed a total of 488 HP and 499 lb.-ft of torque in a temporary rear-wheel-drive configuration. Additional upgrades include Ohlins R&T coilovers, adjustable stabilizer bars, Tarett camber plates, a big brake kit, 997 GT2 intercoolers, a CFD-design large throttle body, a Dundon Motorsports custom stainless steel exhaust, Synapse blow-off valves, and a GT2 clutch conversion kit with Sachs Stage 2 race clutch.
This sale will include a clean title.
