Powered by a 3.6-liter Mezger engine coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission, this 2001 Porsche 996 Turbo Coupe comes finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over black full leather upholstery. It was sold new from Thoroughbred Motorcars, Inc. in Nashville, Tennessee, and moved to Louisiana with its third owner in 2019 who carried out extensive high-end modifications.

Other modifications include Forgeline wheels, a Sachs performance clutch, a flat-bottom steering wheel, GT3 RS short shifter, and Bilstein PSS10 coilovers. Benefitting from a major recent service and welded coolant pipes, this Turbo shows approximately 32k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New Orleans.
