Slantnose 2008 Porsche 911 SEMA Car Sure Is An Interesting Ride

Spending almost $100,000 on a Porsche 911 won’t raise any eyebrows, even if it’s the 997-generation model. However, this one is a “bit” different.

That’s because it is a 2008 widebody Slantnose Carrera S that was a show winner at the 2016 SEMA event. According to the eBay ad, it has only 1,000 miles (1,600 km) on its 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine and is equipped with a manual gearbox.

The reason for the low mileage is because the engine was rebuilt 900 miles (1,450 km) ago. Visually, it gained the previously-mentioned slant nose body kit, Rotoform LSR wheels, CAE shifter with GT3 Cup cables, 6-point roll cage, carbon fiber seats, air strut suspension, custom exhaust, plus Porsche Cup carbon roof and rear side quarter windows.

The interior also features an Indigo Blue suede dashboard and headliner, Indigo Blue steering wheel with quick flip hub kit, GT3 RS pull strap, Rennline 4 piece pedal set and floor boards, and a working air conditioning unit that “blows ice gold”. The ad also specifies that the car can be slammed to the ground when parked, as its ride height is adjustable by Bluetooth or through the center console digital controller.

As far as we can tell, this looks like a really hardcore machine. The seller does not specify any performance figures, but if we had to guess, we’d say it’s a pretty safe bet that this is quicker than a stock 2008 Carrera S. But is it worth $96,000? Well, since the listing recently ended and the car didn’t sell, it appears that we have our answer.
