2001 Porsche 996 Carrera Cabriolet 6-Speed 3.8L

We are pleased to present this unique 2001 996 Porsche Carrera Cabriolet.  Featuring a bored out 3.8L flat-six engine, special styling cues, Forgeline wheels, and a sports exhaust muffler, this 996 is a complete package.  Showing 62k miles on the odometer, this 996 is being offered for auction in excellent condition by its seller in Virginia.

Finished in Guards Red, this 2001 Carrera is said to have been garage-kept and shows to be in excellent condition with only minor wear present.  The paint is perfectly accentuated by a new black soft top which was recently installed by the seller.  The sleek and narrow body of this C2 has been dramatically enhanced due to a few upgrades including:  aerokit, lowered suspension, and 19” Forgeline wheels that come wrapped in Toyo sport tires.  The seller notes that the factory wheels and tires will be included in the sale.

Inside, this Carrera is appointed with a black full leather interior that remains in excellent condition.  This interior has clearly been well-cared for throughout its life with all electronics and accessories fully functional.  A few factory features include 2-way electrical heated seats, crested headrests, and a factory Becker Porsche CDR-32 radio.

This 996 Carrera features a rebuilt and bored over 3.8L flax-six engine (originally 3.6L) from legendary Porsche specialists LN Engineering based out of Momence, IL. The seller reports a bill in excess of $20k for the engine work which is an indication of the quality of the craftmanship.  Power is delivered to the rear wheels by way of a sharp 6-speed manual transmission.  The rear of the car is complemented by a sports muffler, which provides a deep and rich exhaust note from the motor. The seller notes the engine has recently received a full service including new fluids and filters.

The sale of this 996 Carrera will include all service records, receipts of engine rebuild, original documentation, and a Carfax report.  If you have been waiting for an exhilarating, well-cared for 996, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for.

    Just wanted to give a little "personal" side to the information I have provided about this car. Why am I selling it? Simply put, if i had a bigger garage I wouldn't. I have a 1971 911S in the garage too that I am 85% done restoring. But there is not enough room to do the work on it with the 996 parked in there with it. So moving the 996 out and getting tools etc all back out , well an hour passes then I can get to work (fun). Same for the end of the day as the 996 never sits outside. So I love porsches and wish I didn't have to sell the 996. I used to race in SCCA years back (i'm 61 now), back before kids and other responsibilities (wouldn't change it for the world). So the car is, in my mind, truly special and a lot of fun to drive. So if you have any questions about how the car has been cared for just let me know. Good luck.
