2001 Porsche 996 Carrera 3.8L 6-Speed

Up for auction is this 2001 Porsche 996 Carrera 4 Coupe finished in Seal Grey Metallic.  This 996 underwent extensive performance upgrades and track-oriented modifications including a rear-wheel-drive conversion, GT3-style bucket seats, a roll bar, Turbo shock absorbers, lowering springs, and a custom-built 3.8L engine by Evospec Performance claimed to make over 400 HP. This 996 is said to be accompanied by nearly $40k in records and has recently received a new Sachs clutch and transmission mount.  With just over 98k miles showing on the odometer and approximately 5k miles driven on the new engine, this one-of-a-kind 996 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Minnesota.

This Carrera is finished in Seal Grey Metallic and comes factory equipped with Exclusive GT3-style flared rocker panels.  Zunsport protective grille inserts have been added to the front air intakes and a removable racing tow hook is equipped in the front.  Some signs of road-going wear are visible throughout the exterior and CARFAX shows an accident report under previous ownership in 2003 which is believed to have resulted in damage to the rear end.  Additional images are provided in the photo gallery.  This 996 rides on 18” OZ Racing wheels which are finished in black and paired with 7mm/14mm wheel spacers as well as a Motorsports wheel stud kit.  The Pirelli Pzero tires are dated from 2017 and the original Porsche 18” wheels are also said to accompany the sale, dressed in Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires from 2019.

Inside, the black interior has been fitted with a genuine Porsche roll bar, GT3-style bucket seats, Rennline floorboards, a Rennline pedal kit, and a 997 short shifter.  The seats are paired with a BBI slider kit and 6-point Schroth Enduro harnesses dated from 2020.  The rear seats have been deleted and the original Porsche CR-220 radio has been retained along with the climate control system and 3-spoke leather steering wheel.

This Carrera 4 has been converted to rear-wheel-drive and equipped with a custom 3.8L flat-six engine built by Evospec Performance.  Claimed to make over 400 HP, this engine features custom cam grinds, a custom cylinder head, forged internals, an IPD intake plenum, K&N air intake, headers, catless x-pipe, muffler bypass, a 2-quart Mantis Automotive deep sump oil extension, an LN Engineering air/oil separator, oil-fed IMS bearing, and a Cobb Accessport with custom EVOMS tune by Sam Stone.  The secondary air pump has been removed and new engine mounts have been installed along with new fuel injectors and 02 sensors.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission which has been recently serviced and fitted with a new mount and Sachs clutch kit.  The suspension has also been upgraded with H&R lowering springs, 996 Turbo shock absorbers, Tarret Engineering rear tow links, and 2-piece GT3 front arms.  Approximately 5k miles are said to have been driven on the new engine and invoices are said to accompany the sale detailing the incredible amount of work that has been put into this car.

This sale will include a set of two keys, the rear seat cushions, the original air intake, throttle body, center driveshaft, 18" wheels, and a clean title.  With its upgraded 3.8L engine, performance-oriented interior, and exciting rear-wheel-drive configuration, this 996 is a perfect choice for the track or street.

    Don't think it hit the reserve at that price...

  • luis.seneriz (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    If it’s sold at this price is basically the cost of the engine, so well bought. If it’s going to dealtank we will see.

    @luis.seneriz Lower temp stat was installed when the motor was built it is a 71 deg instead of the stock 83 deg. I agree if it is going to be used as more of a primary track car that would be a good idea.

  • luis.seneriz (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    To whoever gets the car I highly recommend to get an additional center mount radiator. In stop and go traffic in a hot place it will overheat. A lot of my friends that track their 996s had install it, this is a 3.8, heat will be bigger problem with it. Also a lower temp thermostat shoul be installed. GLWTA

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Added pictures of factory seats. They will be included in the sale

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @cotom I did not install a 3rd radiator conversion.

  • PCARMARKET 1 month, 1 weekago

    New video content has been added to the listing page.

  • cotom (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Do you have a third/center radiator in there ? LOVE the setup and sorting on this

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @luis.seneriz Yes the stock air box will go with the car.

  • luis.seneriz (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Having driven this monster at Brainerd International, I can vouch for the capability and well balanced nature of this car. 155 into turn 1 by a relative rookie.. and killing turn 3… nuf said

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @cp0002 A/C works perfectly. Metal bracket is a mount for a lap timer, its held on by double stick tape.

  • cp0002 1 month, 1 weekago

    Has the AC been deleted? If not, does it work properly? Anything else on the car not work? Also, what is the metal bracket on the left side of the steering column ?

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @JBoxerGT2 I will post one this afternoon.

  • JBoxerGT2 (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Planning on a cold start, driving video, drive by, etc? Thx!

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @agt6381 I doubt it would pass CA emissions unless the catalytic convertors where put back on. The tires have 8-9 32nds on them the stock wheels have 9 32nds on them as well. I have the radio code also.

  • agt6381 (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @mnflatsix Will this pass CA emission. I notice the head unit needs a code. Do you have the code? What's the thickness of the tires difficult to tell in the pictures.

  • digit3 (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    John Bray @ EvoSpec is cranking away in Phoenix. I had him work on a car of mine in March this year. Very busy, very very well regarded Porsche engine shop.

    @cp0002 I would not hesitate to, just depends how to pack all the extras that come with it. Or ship them.

  • cp0002 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Any reason why this car would not make a cross-country drive to its new home?

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @cp0002 The car has been to 4 events, 1 driver training and 3 driver education "DE"
    events since the build.

  • cp0002 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Has the car been tracked after the new engine was installed? Also, just to be clear, there are no cats on this car, correct?

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @zmaywood Yes the original front seats will fit in and operate as designed with the roll bar installed.

  • zmaywood (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Beautiful car. Will the original seats fit back in car while the role cage is in place?

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Prior to my ownership I believe is was driven all year long.

  • cp0002 1 month, 2 weeksago

    If you search on Evo Spec and John Bray, the search results will point you to his facebook page...

  • cp0002 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Judging by the rust/corrosion on fasteners, is it safe to assume that this car has been driven in the winter?

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    EvoSpec is owned by John Bray he was the lead engine developer at Evolution Motorsports for 14 years. He started EvoSpec in 2016 I believe.

  • luis.seneriz (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Thanks for the replies. I still can’t find any info of evospec performance. Can you shine the light on them?? They maybe great but if we don’t know much about them that may hurt your value. I’m pretty sure everyone here who Jake Raby and flat six innovations is. Thanks again.

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Oil Fed IMS bearing was Turner Motorsports.

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Used LN Nickies the coating was done at millennium coatings.

  • luis.seneriz (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    I was looking for a 997 Carrera s but this will definitely do. What is the the coating on piston and cylinder walls? What IMS bearing is on it? I couldn’t find much info on evospec. Ie FSI
    Used nickies, Vision Motorsports uses chrome moly. Does the car carries a clean tittle?? I own a 3/98 996 coupe 3.4 6 spd, I want the extra hp.

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Yes I have the original leather front seats I will get photos tomorrow. He air oil separator is a Porsche motorsports AOS the adapter for it is made by LN.

  • JBoxerGT2 (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Nice set up. Not over kill. Sorry if I missed it, still have factory front seats? Thx!

  • Moosetaco (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Great looking car and awesome build! Which AOS is on the car? To my knowledge LN does not make one. Also, which IMS bearing was used?

  • mnflatsix (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    This is the seller, please feel free to post questions or comments I will be more than happy to answer everything to the best of my knowledge. This is a great car for street driving or performance driving events.
