2001 Porsche 996 Turbo 6-Speed BBi Build

We are pleased to present this 2001 Porsche 996 Turbo Coupe finished in Orient Red Metallic over a black leather interior.  A lifelong West Coast car, this 2001 example was purchased by its seller in 2012 before it was treated to custom exterior upgrades and a full performance build by BBi including larger turbos, fuel injectors, an upgraded clutch and flywheel, a custom performance tune, and much more.  Now offering a claimed output of approximately 700 HP from its sought after Mezger engine, this 6-speed 996 Turbo is said to have been driven only 500 miles since the completion of the work by BBi and is now being offered by its seller out of California with approximately 40k miles showing on the odometer.

Having spent much of its life covered and garage-kept, the Orient Red Metallic paint is reported to be in show-quality condition with only a few touched-up imperfections noted on the front end.  The left front fender and driver’s side door are also said to have been professionally refinished to maintain a pristine cosmetic appearance. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX.  A Porsche GT2 front bumper conversion was carried out along with the installation of LED taillights, and a GT2-style rear wing and decklid.  Other modifications include removable vinyl graphics and BBi window banner, black side air intakes with carbon-fiber slats, and aftermarket 19” RS-Spyder-style wheels that are finished in black and dressed in brand-new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

Inside, this 996 features a black leather interior with upgraded Porsche 997 painted hardback Sport Seats.  The sound system has also been upgraded with an Alpine touchscreen unit, and a protective custom-fit cover has been applied over the dashboard.  The seller reports all gauges and accessories to be in proper working order.

This 996 is equipped with a 3.6 L twin-turbocharged flat-six Mezger engine that was rated at 415 HP in its stock configuration.  All four wheels are driven through a highly desirable 6-speed manual transmission.  In 2019, this Turbo was brought to BBi to undergo a full high-performance build which included welded coolant pipes, an iPD GT2 competition intake plenum, 74mm throttle body, 1300cc fuel injectors, a COBB Accessport with a custom BBi tune, a stage 2.5 competition clutch and lightweight flywheel, as well as a TiAL XR980 turbo upgrade which cost over $7k alone.  The suspension has been lowered and the performance upgrades are said to provide an output of as much as 700 HP.  Invoices from BBi are provided in the photo gallery and the seller reports this 996 to be in excellent driving condition with approximately 500 miles traveled since the completion of the upgrades.  A new battery was recently installed as well.

This sale will include a set of 2 keys, BBi invoices, and a clean title.  Upgraded to the next level with no-expense-spared, this 6-speed Turbo is just waiting to put a smile on the face of its next owner.

    Okay, I'd love to know more about the buyer. I live 90 minutes south of CDA, and also have a 996TT (though not 700hp, or in this amazing color). Would be fun to meet up some time, or attend an Inland NW PCA event.

    @El_Chingon Totally agree. I nearly pressed in a bid but just couldn't swallow the off color red. Blue, Silver, Red, Black - Oh buddy.

    $54K is a bargain but not my flavor.

  • El_Chingon (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @rreasen I’m thinking so. If this were blue (or any interesting colour) I’d be getting a little extension on that credit line and locking this car in. The build alone has that much of an investment.

  • rreasen (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    So, did it sell or reserved out. If this sells, I'm bummed I didn't have the $50K. This is a $60-$70K car.
    Maybe it is the color??

    @GetBoosted The 996 market has been in a steady climb recently. And the Turbos with the Metzger engines are legendary and bullet proof.

    Seller:

    Do you have any documentation regarding suspension changes? Build?

    I saw the front axle rebuild by bib but was wondering what mods if any were done or is this basically a stock turbo suspension

    Thank you

  • msandford74 (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    I have to ask, it looks like you have a cover on the dash. Is there anything cracked or deformed under it?
    Thanks for your time

  • Mercyhealth (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Sal1820 very nice 996 turbo you have brought to us here bravo. I might lose the decals but with the engine and body upgrades you have most certainly have nailed it. Especially if you like your wings dipped in Red Hot Sauce!

    Well I’ve got entirely toooo many cars but if this one stays at this level ... I will swoop in and steal it or bump the crap out of that bid.!

  • GetBoosted (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Sal1820 do you have the DME report that @Btremayne requested?

  • Sal1820 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Wheedoggie what would you like to know about this car

  • Sal1820 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @GetBoosted I think people are watching it and waiting for last call

  • Sal1820 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Amb287 no heated seats

  • Amb287 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Bid in the amount of $30,246

  • Amb287 (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Does this have heated seats as an original option?

  • GetBoosted (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Wheedoggie it's a stripper model car in that the options list is low. Modded as well. So the market is more niche than normal I suppose. And unfortunately the 996 gen isn't very sought after. I like my 996 but that's just how things are :-(

  • Wheedoggie (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    What’s going on that I don’t know about? This car I thought would be at a much higher $$ ?

    @sal1820 This is an incredible car. I'm a current 996 owner and love the platform. This is the nicest 996TT I've seen in a while. I suspect the bidding will quickly get past my limit, but I'll certainly be watching. GLWTA!

  • Sal1820 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    For those who are possibly living under a rock, BBi is a shop of incredible caliber and talent in Southern California that are not only Porsche specialists, but have built very impressive race 911s including several cars campaigned by Jeff Zwart for the Pikes Peak hill climb events. You can definitely trust their work, compared to ABC shop in shantytown USA.

  • jbelcredi (registered bidder) 1 month, 3 weeksago
