DT: 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera G50 3.3L Turbocharged

Finished in Venetian Blue Metallic, this 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe was acquired by its second and current owner from the Collection of Miami, Florida in 1998.  The car has since undergone extensive performance modifications including Porsche Boxster front brakes, Hyperco rear coils, Sparco seats, a powder-coated roll bar, and a turbocharged twin-plug engine freshly rebuilt and further upgraded by Eddie Bello Motorsports in 2022. Meticulously looked after and sparingly driven by the same owner for nearly 25 years, this turbocharged 1988 Carrera is now being offered for auction with just over 73k miles on the odometer.

The exterior is finished in Venetian Blue Metallic and wears removable black stone guards, 930 Turbo spoilers, tinted windows, and later-style Aero mirrors. Aftermarket 17” Fikse F10 wheels measure 7.5” wide in front, 9.5” in the rear, and come dressed in new Hankook Ventus V12 Evo 2 tires.  The car is said to have been garage-kept by the current owner and received repairs to the passenger-side door and rear quarter panel following the minor accident reported on CARFAX in 2000.  All work was carried out by certified Porsche repair shop Stuttgart International Auto in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  Additional images are provided in the gallery along with the full CARFAX report.

The cabin is fitted with a pair of Sparco seats, safety harnesses, and rails as well as AJASA racing pedals, custom blue carpet, and a powder-coated DAS rollbar with custom removable door bars.  Several auxiliary gauges have been added, a new Kenwood audio system was installed earlier in 2022, and the seller reports all A/C components have been removed from the car.

The engine's initial upgrade consisted of a basic bolt-on Protomotive turbo kit installed by Pro-Tech of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  The engine has been continually upgraded throughout the years including a twin-plug cylinder head conversion in December of 2021. Most recently, the engine was rebuilt by Eddie Bello Motorsports in February of 2022 including the following items:

  • New Precision Ball Bearing 6466 Turbocharger
  • 3.3 Pistons with Coated Tops
  • Mahle Cylinders
  • Polished Crankshaft
  • Oil Tubes & O-Rings
  • Fuel System Overhaul
  • New Coated Main Bearings
  • New GT3 Oil Pump
  • Camshaft Chains
  • Exhaust and Intake Studs
  • New Coated Rod Bearings
  • Denso Ignition Coils & Bosh Spark Plugs
  • Oil Thermostat
  • Oil Lines/Tubes
  • New Oil Cooler & Fan
  • Crank/Cam Sensors
  • Kennedy 6-Puck with Spring Clutch
  • New OEM Flywheel

 

The 730HP+ engine features a custom ceramic-coated exhaust and full bay intercooler by Bello Motorsports along with a new Haltech Elite 2000 ECU, GT2 Evo cams, Pauter rods, a 78mm throttle body, a custom fuel system, Race Ware head studs, Ferrera stainless steel valves, and Nirosist rings. The 5-speed G50 manual gearbox was rebuilt in 2018 and comes paired with an OEM limited-slip differential with Patrick Motorsports billet side cover. Other upgrades include a modified rear sway bar, Hyperco rear coils, 930 inner axles, Bilstein shocks, Turbo tie rods, stainless steel brake lines, and 4-piston Porsche Boxster front brakes newly installed in 2021.

This sale will include extensive records. The CARFAX shows a branded title to have been issued in 1995, however, the seller states this resulted from clerical error when recording mileage and that the car is accompanied by a clean Florida title.

    @KvN thank you. We all obey the speed limits:)

  • KvN (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    Wow.

    That motor just winds up like a turbine engine!

    I have a late ‘12 997.2 turbo and can only imagine if I were fortunate enough to have your road rocket, I would absolutely go to jail.

    Spectacular build.

    @TurboWax thanks for the quick response.

  • TurboWax (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @twistym2 Hello, Thank you for your question photo#52 shows the other wheels, this Wheels are included with the sale of the car , so the new owner should make provisions to take them with the car; the specs are as follows

    Speedline's build by SAC ( Speedline America Corporation )
    17"
    Front 7 1/2
    Rears 9 1/2
    Mounted on Toyo Tires; I will load some pictures for you.

    Thank you for asking

  • twistym2 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    Does the sale of the car come with both sets of wheels?

  • TurboWax (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Silver930 thank you. We installed the best parts available in the market today. :)

  • Silver930 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    This must be a Monster lot of power tame. I recall the Eddie Bello drag racing 964 doing wheelies off the line and hitting some pretty high speeds in the 1/4 mile on youtube so you know the motor is built to a very high standard with the best of parts. I see some big brakes to slow it down. Good luck with sale today !

    @Mrosilio Hello, Indeed  I understand your question; a lot of us learned a lot and many people benefited from our experience. So let me see if I can summarize 25 years.

    Purchased on Dec 30,1998 Bone stock ( I have paperwork proof)

    Drove it until 2000 When I installed the first set up with Proto Tech ( I have the paperwork proof ) That was around 5k for the system plus other goodies that were extra; fast forward to today and that cost is almost 10K without installation.

    In 2005 We started the journey and the engine was built by Turbo Werks in 2005

    The car in 2005 was updated with what is now considered  an obsolete system, it was a DTA from the U.K among other things.

    I drove the car from 2005 to 2019. During that period I had to make a repair to the valve guides on the cylinder heads because this particular car suffered from that from the factory. Moving forward we installed bronze valve guides, a common practice now. Since we had the heads off, Bello replaced the Piston Rings but without opening the entire engine and  at that time we also converted the heads to Twin Plug from the Single plug.
     Later 2019 I parked the car and started to gather the parts to do the build that we have now. We started the car up  in February 2022. 

    During MY years of ownership My biggest issue was that the car had a single plug, changing spark plugs was more often than regular but that is now a thing of the past. Another challenge was that the ECU as the years were going bye such started to get slower and not performing well, again a thing of the past that now it has the Haltech Elite and Tuned by Bello is simply priceless. In addition, a new wire harness was installed along with military grade terminals.

    The only thing I can really point to the longevity of the car was always high grade fuel, oil changes more frequently than needed but back then we didn't have any feedback on the parts coated, now that we open the engine up it we learned a lot so I coated all the bearings, pistons. Oil is the blood of an air cooled car, if you take this build, on the Lube Oil Dept. new parts, coated parts, new oil cooler, new fan, new oil thermostat , new lines, additional oil filter, I run two now, just to mention the attention to detail. And we will no longer have to do oil changes as often because we trust what's inside,
    As you can see she has been solid, a lot of people don't understand or underestimate the air cooled cars, they were built very very well.

    I trust I have answered your question.

    Thanks again

    @3-Pedals Thank you. The air filter is located on the left side of the engine, I took it off so you will see two uploaded photos outside and inside the engine bay. Thank you for your question.

  • 3-Pedals (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    Beautiful build! Must be a hoot to drive. Where is the air filter located?

  • Mrosilio (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    @TurboWax As I'm sure you know, you an learn a lot about a car by reading it's documented history, especially considering you have 25 years of it. Interested to see any quirky issues that came up over the last 2 decades, maintenance frequency, cost of rebuilds, etc.

    Thanks

    @Mrosilio Hello, is there anything in particular that you are after? as I have maintained the car myself with the mentioned shops doing the heavy jobs.

    However, the best information that I can share is that through the years I was always keeping her in excellent shape; and the testament to that is on the condition we found the bearings when we opened the motor this time. ( I have loaded the picture )

    Bearings: 15 years ago I was one of the first ones to play with Bearing Coatings, back then it was not common in the Porsche world , this is the first time that we are opening the motor all the way from the original build. the engine was build by Turbo Werks originally . To now see the performance of the coating along with the kept maintenance really demonstrated the results.

    ( Please refer to the loaded picture ) so we are returning with all OEM Porsche Main Bearings and Rod Bearings both of them coated. From Left to right used main bearing, used rod bearing and New rod bearings going in. Clearly the bearing condition is a testament of how well the engine was kept.

    I trust this answer your question. Thank you.

  • Mrosilio (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    Can we get actual scans of all the service records to read through it?

    Thanks

    @Mrosilio Thank you.

    It is a real street sleeper, being a 911 narrow body it really hides what's under.
    About "Oil Consumption"  since the motor is fresh I don't have data on that, however, usual 911 air cooled cars oil consumption is 1/2 to 1 quart per 1000 miles (~0.95ltrs / 1000miles) and that Porsche factory spec. is 1.5litres per 1000km (~2.4ltrs / 1000miles )

    Regarding the Gearbox, is the Original gear box that came with the car, this box is often referred as a G50/00 and is found on 911 Carrera from 1987-1989, ours been  1988 came equip with such, is a 5 speed transmission; this box has what is called a billet side cover which was a weak point on them, in addition it has a OEM Porsche Motorsport Limited Slip, also the clutch fork pivot boss have been upgraded with billets one. 

    I have now added the photo of the binder with all the paperwork related to the car. Thank you for your questions and please feel free to ask.

  • Mrosilio (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    Holy moly this thing looks crazy. What kind of oil have you been running and how has oil consumption been? Can you provide more info on the transmission? What kind is it? When was it swapped? Also not seeing the copies of the service records in the photo gallery.

    Thanks!

  • TurboWax (seller) 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    @Sgt.Schultz Thank you so much for the kind words. It has always been a pleasure to help out the air-cooled community.

  • Sgt.Schultz 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    Compelled to chime in here. Seller / this car have *long* been valued forum contributors, with most steps of this build shared throughout the years. Anyone unfamiliar with the builder Eddie Bello should YouTube him doing wheelies in his 911 8-) I think the ad would benefit from the following data from this car's performance: 1/4 mile 10.76@139
    0-1 mile @193mph. I hope the right buyer comes along here for this and knows its value and enjoys its next phase of ownership. Bid with confidence, great seller / build!!

  • TurboWax (seller) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    @Johnny3 No problem, My pleasure; any questions, please, don't hesitate to ask.

  • Johnny3 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    Really impressive, thank you for clarifying. 60-130 in < 8 sec is $1mm supercar territory.

  • TurboWax (seller) 3 weeksago

    @Johnny3 Hello, the red push button is for the high boost and it was used during the dyno runs, right after the build, the first pass was 598.84 rwhp from there Bello started to tune the car and it went 616.6 | 631.2 @ 21psi of boost, this is the current setting on low boost and runs through the Haltech. The video I provided is on on that low boost. The red button is for the high boost as long as you keep it pressed and is set to 28 psi, at that level she actually made 736.6rwhp @5973rpm. The dyno showed here is at 732.8rwhp because the dyno center never send me the actual paper and that's why I provided the 732rwhp dyno. I do have the dyno run videos and screen shoots. The idea behind is, should you need the additional power in 4th gear or 5th the power is there and available, however, the low boost is plenty and will stay through 3er 4th, and 5th without no problems or falling off. We changed the hot housing from a .81 to a .96 and it made a huge difference and gave us this power levels. We know the car has more on it, but we decided that for us in low boost there's no need to go any further. On the video I pointed to the boost gauge as it comes on immediately without downshifting. Regarding the build, I have all the receipts, pictures of the new components, videos, we kept track of everything. The car is really a Sleeper no doubt. Any questions please feel free to ask and my apologies for the long replay but I don't mind sharing part of my journey.

  • Johnny3 (registered bidder) 3 weeksago

    Sweet Jesus. @TurboWax, this thing is a monster. Is the red button on the shifter for nitrous and was that used in the video/dyno run? Do you have receipts for the motor rebuild?

  • TurboWax (seller) 3 weeksago

    @Johnny3 Hello, Took some videos over the weekend and now are live. Thank you.

    @Johnny3 Thank you for your questions. My apologies as is perhaps an oversight from my side. The car currently has the Fiske wheels, however, I will also provide the second set of wheels, those are Speedlines SAC. Regarding the exhaust, it will come with the muffler and the short pipe, in case the new owner wants to have a louder sound, the short pipe will also come with two external small mufflers that are press fit and can be removed and installed by hand without tools, I added those for those Sunday's early cruises just to get out of my community. The car is fast, I will look into adding a video as per your request. Thank you for your questions.

  • Johnny3 (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 2 daysago

    Very cool build, Im sure this car is insanely quick. Your pictures show two sets of wheels and two different exhaust systems. The auction mentions the Fikse wheels, do the others come with the car? As far as the exhaust goes, in addition to showing pics with each the video has two scenes, each with a different exhaust set up. Which comes with the car? Would be nice to see a longer driving video with an acceleration run. Thanks

  • TurboWax (seller) 3 weeks, 2 daysago

    @OttoBozart Thank you so much! Indeed is a beautiful color. The Venetian Blue is a low-Key shade of Medium Grey-Blue Metallic. In 1988; I don't think there were many cars with this color.

  • OttoBozart 3 weeks, 2 daysago

    Venetian Blue Metallic is a beautiful color. For those wondering what it looks like, the best examples of the true color are photos 49 through 51.

    Greetings and thank you for looking at this amazing car. This is truly a sleeper! Any questions please ask away! Thank you for your participation and good luck!
