DT: 36k-Mile 2002 Porsche 996 Turbo 6-Speed

Now available for auction is this 2002 Porsche 996 Turbo Coupe finished in Lapis Blue Metallic.  Equipped with a sought-after twin-turbocharged Mezger engine and 6-speed manual transmission, this 996 commanded an original sticker price of over $174k (CAD) and came factory optioned with a Savanna Beige full leather interior, Sport Seats, Porsche crested headrests, and the Design Package.  This 2002 example is said to have been recently acquired by the seller from its original owner and is now being offered for auction out of Canada with approximately 58k kilometers (36k miles) showing on the odometer.

This Turbo is finished in Lapis Blue Metallic and features wide fenders, model-specific bumpers, and an automatically deployed rear spoiler. The paint is described to be original and some minor rock chips are noted on the front, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.  This 996 rides on factory 18” Turbo Twist wheels that remain dressed in their original Pirelli P-Zero tires.

Inside, this Turbo has been appointed with a premium Savanna Beige full leather interior featuring heated Sport Seats with Porsche crested headrests.  The optional Design Package (P78) also includes stainless door sill plates with model logos, aluminum-look instrument dials, and leather shifter/handbrake levers with aluminum inlays.  The driver is also supplied with automatic climate control, a Bose sound system, and an AM/FM radio with a CD player as well as a remote 6-disc CD changer.

The race-derived 3.6L twin-turbocharged Mezger flat-six engine generates up to 415 HP which is distributed among all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission.  The car is said to have undergone nearly all routine service through an authorized Porsche dealership with records dating back to the original purchase.

This sale will include a set of two keys, owner’s manuals, service records, and valid Canadian registration. Presented in a desirable color combination and generously equipped from the factory, this 6-speed Turbo is not to be overlooked.

    @Egamble3 I'm an attorney and have experience in import/export of cars. Hmu if you have questions, happy to help guide you through. It can be a confusing process

    @Pinehurstghm ... you're perfectly right. And it's not only about the fact, that there were remounted, but about the recommendation that they are ok to drive. Well, how reliable were all the other comments made by the seller?

  • cerb1958 (registered bidder) 1 week, 6 daysago

    I think the bid high price was more than fair even if the car was already in the US and even if it had new tires on it, and even if no one had horror stories about the seller like @maggio.1 And I know color is an individual preference, but I think an ALL tan interior is almost as horrid as an all red interior (I love just tan seats, but not everything else - and a dash top should never be anything other than black non reflective!! I think the selling buy now price is nuts.

  • Pinehurstghm 1 week, 6 daysago

    @Velosolex Who would buy a car with 20-year-old tires. Tires are, as most know, a matter of wear and also age. I am selling my 2010 Jeep Wtangler...tread is still great...but 10 year old tires...NO...I am buying new titles before I sell it...to do otherwise is unconscionable.

    @Mercyhealth Added costs to get cars into the US in addition to auction fees dampens enthusiasm in many cases. Add State sales tax and the premium can be 15% on top of final hammer price.

    Doesn’t everybody thing that these over the border cars would go higher if there was some help from the auction house or in this case the Dealer?
    This is a great turbo very very clean. And should go for a high bid. What keeps me out is the whole border process. If it is easy then let those who have skin in the game help out the bidders. It would help.

    @Egamble3 It is not an issue. For those who can’t navigate past calling a truck to pick up it may be difficult. Simply call an import agent. They handle all the paperwork. Yes it will take 2 weeks longer to get behind the wheel but so what Good luck.

  • Egamble3 (registered bidder) 1 week, 6 daysago

    Does anyone have any real experience getting a Canadian car back into the US lately? I have heard some horror stories of people having lots of trouble getting a car imported. None of the comments state an estimated time to get the car in. Thanks!

    @Velosolex The tires are usable for normal driving but since they are original to the car we would recommend replacing them for any type of performance driving. The original owner had another set of wheels and tires on the car for the majority of its life, we put the originals back on when we acquired the car.

    @DGAutoClub Any information on how much those additional costs would be?

  • DGAutoClub (seller) 2 weeksago

    @911Brez We can assist with shipping into the US, as well as handling the import process/obtaining a US title. These additional costs would be the buyer’s responsibility.
