Do you want to own a sports car with enough performance to out-sprint modern supercars without breaking the bank? This modified 2003 Porsche 911 Turbo on Bring A Trailer could be for you. Plus, it also comes with a six-speed manual.
The 996-generation Turbo might not be the most desirable 911 out there, but with a current bid of $40,000, this example could prove to be good value (for a 911 T), especially when you consider that when it was delivered in late 2002, it had a sticker price of $150,830.
Powering the 996 Turbo is a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine and ordinarily, this engine pumped out approximately 444 hp when ordered with the X50 Power Kit like this one. However, the car’s owner wasn’t satisfied with that amount of power and set about transforming the engine to greatly improve performance.
The car includes new turbochargers, a brush-less fuel pump and controller, enlarged fuel injectors, copper spark plugs, new intercoolers, a GT3 throttle body, SRM billet aluminum intake Y-pipe and plenum, and a SRM Tilton Triple Plate clutch paired to an SRM Chromoly flywheel. A dyno sheet reveals that the sports car pumps out 731 hp at 5700 rpm and 705 lb-ft (955 Nm) of torque at all four wheels. We suspect acceleration would be absolutely rampant.
Inside, everything appears to be in order with black leather across the seats and center console which looks to be in reasonable condition. A look at the odometer reveals that the car has 69,501 miles (111,851 km) on the clock.
Increasing the power of a car with forced induction car like this often comes at the expense of reliability so that’s something buyers should keep in mind.
