993 Twin Turbo

This is a completely sorted and well maintained TT that is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.

Basics
-MY 1996
-Black (Schwarz) exterior
-Black/tan interior
-86K miles
-Extensive maintenance, upgrades and customizations
-Clean and clear title and Carfax

Engine/Transmission
The car drives exceptionally well. The engine pulls nicely, the clutch feels great, and shifting is smooth and precise. Quite simply, it drives exactly as a 993 Turbo should and outperforms stock configuration. Maintenance, modifications and upgrades include:
-Recent transmission rebuild, new clutch, new flywheel and new slave cylinder ($15K expense)
-New L/R turbo assemblies ($8K expense)
-Updated turbo oil lines
-Upgraded programmable ECU ($2.5K)
-Electronic boost controller
-5 Bar fuel pressure regulator
-Updated boost intake hoses (orange ends)
-Billet valve covers

Suspension/Steering/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
The car rides and stops incredibly. Upgrades include:
-Bilstein adjustable coil-over suspension
-Brembo brake kit (bigger brakes calipers, rotors, and pads)
-Anodized strut brace
-New steering rack
-New tie rods
-19” HRE wheels (993 Turbo Twist wheels available if preferred)
-Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires

Interior
The interior is mostly stock and came optioned with supple leather and heated 8-way power seats. The doors, seats, dash, shifter, e-brake, carpets and headliner are in excellent shape. Some notable interior modifications include:
-Porsche 3 spoke steering wheel with colored crest
-Aluminum pedal set
-Aluminum “Twin Turbo” door sills
-Carpets with red turbo script
-The front trunk carpet was customized with a stitched leather lining

Electronics
The sound system and modernized accessories are over the top. Well over $10K has been invested in upgrades to include:
-Alpine head unit
-JL Audio amp with custom plexiglass box
-JL Audio and Alpine speakers
-JL Audio 10” woofers with custom carpeted box
-XM Radio
-Bluetooth
-Hands free phone connectivity
-USB input
-Rear view mirror with integrated display
-Backup camera
-Escort Live radar detector (installed but currently disconnected from power)

Exterior
The exterior of the car looks great. The bumpers were replaced with European style bumpers and the car was painted to a high standard. The paint is striking and lustrous. The overall appearance really pops with a mirror-like finish. Some exterior items of note include:
-Euro F/R bumpers with bumper pad delete
-Turbo S front air scoops with fog lights
-New stone guards
-There appears to be some clear flaking in the rain channels. I tried to photograph but it is difficult to see.

This car is not for the purist but rather someone who appreciates the tasteful upgrades. Although all the modifications are reversible, the car has modern features (XM, Bluetooth, backup cam) that increase safety and audio enjoyment. In other words this car is well suited for someone who appreciates the timeless lines and driving experience of the last of the air-cooled turbos coupled with modern features. The mild engine enhancements, new turbos and rebuilt transmission ensure the car is ready for many more enjoyable miles without concern of these big ticket items. It’s obvious the car has benefited from regular maintenance and care with an open checkbook policy. There are no warning lights or issues. There are also records of regularly passing CA smog testing. The car is located in Cocoa, FL, about 45 minutes east of Orlando.

Full disclosure: The car belongs to good friend of mine. He is a man of many talents but posting ads online is not his forte, so I offered to help him out. He is also selling a 1997 silver/black 993 Turbo and a heavily modified 1998 silver/black C2S with a mega twin turbo build. He is willing to work a package deal on multiple cars. He is selling his collection because of opportunities that take him out of the country and away from the cars for extended time. He would prefer the cars be driven and enjoyed under new stewardship than sit for lengthy durations. I should be able to answer most questions and I have access to the cars if needed. I will put serious buyers in direct contact with the owner.

SOLD
