1996 993 Porsche Turbo on 2040-cars
Chugiak, Alaska, United States
I purchased this vehicle in 2000 from seller, second owner, in Cincinnati, Ohio for $85,000 with 28,000 miles on the odometer. Cincinnati owner purchased the car from original owner, in Connecticut. The car was originally purchased from Peconic Bay Motors in Riverhead Long Island in 1996. From 2000 to 2002 the car was kept in San Francisco. In 2002 I moved to the Anchorage area with the car. Between 2004 and 2006 I upgraded the turbos from the stock K16 to K24, added strut tower and Fabspeed exhaust mufflers and catbypass, original catconverters cores were removed, no emission testing required for seasonal driving May to end of October in Alaska. In 2007 upgraded suspension 12 way adjustable Cross coilovers. In July/August 2008 with 100,000 miles I had the engine rebuilt. I purchased engine performance rebuild kit from FVD Brombacher located in Pompano Beach, Florida. The Rebuild kit included but was not limited to 3.8 Mahle pistons and cylinders, left and right sport camshafts with hydraulic lifters, Carrillo connecting rods, sport clutch with lightweight flywheel and software DME update. The rebuilder of the engine used Raceware studs and all other parts valves spring, retainers etc. meet or exceeded the quality of the original parts. The FVD rebuild package cost me approximately $16,000.00. The rebuild with other parts and labor cost me $17,098.00. In 2010 installed BBS wheels (original turbo twist wheels will be included if wanted) In 2012 the transmission was shipped to German Transaxle and the transmission was rebuilt. The cost of the rebuild was approximately $8,000.00.
This is not a concourse car it has the normal wear for a car that has been driven. The car has never been abused, driven to its limit, always garaged, never seen snow (except when I took the pics), rarely driven in the rain and never put away dirty. There is 27,000 miles on the rebuilt motor and 127,000 on the car. The car has never been in a collision and never had bodywork except for a respray of the hood due to being scratched when shipped from Sam Francisco to Anchorage. I would be happy to answer any questions from interested persons. This car was previously listed on EBay and the winning bidder backed out after it was claimed that I did not list the flaws of the car. I did list them and he never asked any questions prior to offering the accepted price.

We hope you have seven minutes to kill. RSR Nürburgring recently took the time to pit Sabine Schmitz and her slightly modified Porsche 911 GT3 RS against Ron Simons and his Ferrari 458 Italia in a sparring match around the infamous Green Hell. The clip begins with the two drivers engaging in a smidgeon of smack talk before the two get down to the business of beating each other's doors off around one of the most challenging courses in the world. Simons calls his car superior to Schmitz's 911, while Schmitz says she's up against nothing more than a Fiat driven by an old Dutch man.

Don't hold any punches, you two.
We won't spoil the finale for you, but we will say the tango is worth watching. At the end, the loser calls for a rematch. We can't wait to see that throwdown. Check out the clip below for yourself.
While the recent bankruptcy of Bertone shows that it has become very difficult to be a coachbuilder today, it seems there is still a business case in creating unique bodies for premium vehicles. Case in point, Studiotorino a small, Italian coachbuilder that has been creating limited-edition cars since 2005. Its latest creation is the Moncenisio, which debuted as a prototype at the National Automobile Museum of Turin on March 21. It's named after the 1902 Susa-Moncenisio race in Italy, the first automotive hillclimb in the world.

The Moncenisio begins life as Porsche Cayman S, and each car will be built to order with a planned production run of 19 examples. The chassis, mechanicals and engine are all left untouched. The only thing that Studiotorino alters are the body panels and interior appointments. Prices start at at a heady 145,000 euros ($200,420 US), plus the cost of the donor vehicle.
Architect Daniele Gaglione penned the shape of the Moncenisio, taking inspiration from the 1963 Porsche 904. The sports coupes receive carbon fiber pieces that replace the front bumper, side panels and rear bumper. Studiotorino also covers the rear side windows with welded metal panels. The design is still clearly a Cayman, especially from the front, but the extended roof and support pillars create a new look from behind, which features a new exhaust treatment and rear spoiler. The interior receives leather upholstery on the engine compartment cover, the partition between the engine and seats, ceiling and A-pillars. Scroll down to view a walkaround of the Moncenisio and read the full press release about it.
The Turbo S will dispatch the Nürburgring in "well under seven and a half minutes."
Porsche is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its 911 Turbo in the best possible way: by announcing the next-generation of the rear-engined beast. The 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S are here, and man oh man, do they seem like the business.
