Up for auction is this 2002 Porsche 996 Turbo Coupe finished in Seal Grey Metallic over a Graphite Grey full leather interior.

This 2002 example features a 6-speed manual transmission and is now being offered out of Texas in excellent condition with 55k miles showing on the odometer.

Originally implemented in the iconic 911 GT1 Le Mans cars, the Mezger engine has become known to many enthusiasts as the greatest water-cooled engine ever created by Porsche. Additionally, the Mezger engine doesn’t suffer from IMS bearing related issues as its oil system ensures constant lubrication. This 996's twin-turbocharged engine sends approximately 415 HP to all four wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. This Turbo received a significant service last December which included the replacement of items such as: brake rotors, pads, sensors, retaining clips, pins, oil and oil filter. This Turbo is said to be in excellent running condition.
