This 2003 Porsche 996 Carrera Coupe is finished in Guards Red over a Savanna Beige full leather interior and offers a 6-speed manual transmission paired with its 3.6-liter flat-six. This example also features the Xenon Headlamp Package, Bose High-End Sound Package, and a 3-spoke steering wheel in dark wood and leather. Benefiting from the fortification of a 997-derived M97 short block, along with extensive modifications including a Soul Performance exhaust system, a Bilstein B16 adjustable suspension, and more, this Carrera is now being offered for auction showing under 18k miles on the odometer.
This Coupe is presented in a traditional Guards Red finish. Optional features include the Xenon Headlamp Package and a rear wiper. A set of 18" Fuchs wheels have been mounted with new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. The seller adds that a paint correction was carried out and XPEL paint protection film and a ceramic coating were applied in June 2022. Minor imperfections are noted on the gas lid, passenger side wheel well, and rear bumper. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin is trimmed in Savanna Beige full leather upholstery and features supple leather seats, front seat lumbar support, the Power Seat Package, and the Bose High-End Sound Package. Modifications include a new amplifier, new front door speakers, and PCCM Plus including a 7” touchscreen and Apple CarPlay. The seller notes slight blemishes on the center console and one button on the dashboard, and a ceramic coating was applied.
The naturally aspirated flat-six engine has been upgraded with a new Porsche M97 short block along with a corresponding clutch at approximately 16k miles in February 2023 by the specialists at Drivers Choice Motors of Florida, at a reported cost of $39k. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. Modifications were simultaneously installed, including an IPD plenum and FI throttle body, a Soul Performance exhaust with competition headers, mufflers, and 200-cell sport catalytic converters. Additionally, a Bilstein B16 adjustable suspension was installed. Service items carried out in August 2022 are said to include the installation of a Porsche short shifter and new brakes, along with replacements to the gas valve housing, shut-off purge valves, and passenger window regulator. The seller adds that the short block was purchased from Porsche and remains under its two-year manufacturer warranty, and the vehicle has been driven approximately 1,400 miles since the upgrade.
This sale will include a clean title.
