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 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.
