Vehicle Listing Description

2003 Porsche 911 Turbo for Sale for $67,950.00
This Silver/Black Turbo is in excellent condition with under 8500 miles on it. It comes with the coveted and rare X50 Powerkit package which bumps the HP from 415hp to 450hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. The X50 Powerkit includes different turbos, intercoolers, engine management tuning, a revised exhaust system and a strengthened transmission. In addition, unlike the first 996 based Turbos of 2001, by 2003 the cars had cup holders and a lockable glove box. This 2nd generation of the 996 Turbo and had many changes such as the in sill, roof frame, seat pans and tunnel to improve the flexural and torsional strength by 25 percent. The B-pillar was also modified to accept new seatbelt tensioners and force limiters. Even the later Turbo S models, only have 444hp and 457 lb-ft torque.
I put new tires on this car within the past 500 miles, Michelin Pilot Sport, and upgraded to the factory short shifter installed by the local Porsche Dealer. All maintenance has been done.
This is my 5th Porsche having recently owned a 2006 997 Carrera S. This car is hands down the fastest car I’ve ever owned. I would describe it as “blisteringly” fast. Even today, the 2010 997 based GT3 only matches its horsepower 7 years later. Why buy a new Carrera or Carrera S or recent model GT3 for close to double the money only to have a slower car?
For you information, the engine in a 996 based Turbo is not the same engine as a 996 Carrera. It was an evolution of the flat six in the Le Mans-winning 1998 911 GT1. The engine was developed as a continuing evolution of the original 1964 911 flat six but was no longer air-cooled. While its crankcase and drop-forged , eight main-bearing crankshaft were similar to those in air-cooled 911 engines, the 996 Turbo used two cylinder heads instead of six, one for each bank of three water-cooled cylinders. The heads were made of a highly heat-resistant aluminum alloy.
For the first time, the Turbo got dual overhead cams, guided and tensioned by ramps and hydraulic tensioners similar in design to those used in 959s, 964s, and 993s. The intake cams featured VarioCam Plus, which controlled lift and timing via hydraulic pressure. The Motronic 7.8 engine management determined when these changes happened depending on a variety of inputs, including throttle position, load, temperatures, gear selection and more. The positive result of this design is the Turbos do not share the RMS leakage issues that the standard 996 Carreras have over the years. This is a different engine with a long history of racing and only has been changed with the 2nd generation 997 GT3 and Turbo.
The car comes with most features such as full leather, CD player, Bose sound system. It does not have a lot of the extra interior show items such as wood trim or carbon fiber… The car listed for over $135,000 originally. Please see the Certificate of Authenticity for details. And of course the car has never been smoked it, has the Porsche leather smell still, and have been garaged and never raced. I’m the 2nd owner and have kept it zymoled since I’ve owned it. Finally, I bought it from a dealer who put a Porsche Certified Pre-Owned Warranty on it which expires in February of 2011.
