The paint is confirmed as being original by paint meter and is reported to have undergone full professional paint correction by previous owner. Paint protection film on the front bumper and hood have kept this car in mint condition and will continue to do so for years to come. The original stone guards have also been replaced with paint protection film covering much more surface area. The seller notes that this car is in like new condition. The original set of 19” OEM Turbo wheels are wearing Pirelli PZero tires with a healthy amount of tread life remaining.

The car also features the desirable Sport Chrono package and factory optioned steel door sills. This car has been cared for diligently and is in truly mint condition both inside and out.
Power comes from a 3.8L twin turbocharged flat-six Mezger engine that delivers 473 bhp and 457 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. As if that isn’t enough, the previous owner has installed some major power upgrades including a Fab Speed dual carbon fiber intake, FVD exhaust and 200 CEL Cats. These upgrades not only significantly increase power output and throttle response, but give this car an exhaust note that is nothing short of spectacular. This power plant is paired with a highly desirable six speed manual transmission and makes for a pure and visceral driving experience. The Carfax report indicates consistent maintenance performed throughout this car's life.
Originally developed for the 911 GT1 Le Mans car, the Mezger engine is regarded by many Porsche experts as the holy grail of water-cooled engines. Featuring a true dry sump and crank driven oil pumps, this engine resists oil surge in even the most aggressive cornering. Furthermore, this GT1 derived engine doesn’t suffer from IMS bearing related issues as its oil system ensures constant lubrication.
