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.

Still planning on getting your hands on a Porsche 918 Spyder? You'd better act quickly, because word has it that the hybrid hypercar is nearly sold out.
Mon, 05 Aug 2013 19:30:00 EST
While Porsche has reportedly only delivered a little over 30 of the 918 examples of the Spyder it plans to manufacture in total, Automotive News says that production is sold out through late March or early April - just a few months shy of when production is set to wrap in July.
That's pretty impressive for a car with a base price of almost $850,000, especially one requiring a $200,000 deposit just to get your name on the list. Still, that sum is significantly less than its competitors get for the McLaren P1 or LaFerrari, both of which sell for over a million (if you can actually get on one at that price), though in fairness, production of each is limited to less than half of the 918 Spyder.
Porsche's Facebook fan base appears to be accelerating as quickly as the cars it builds. The German automaker has just unveiled a special 911 Carrera 4S designed with crowdsourced input as a way to thank its five million Facebook fans.

The 911 features special Aquablaumetallic paint from Porsche Exclusive, contrasting 20-inch white Carrera S wheels and pinstriping, along with an aero package including a fixed rear wing. Inside, there are unique backlit sill plates and the obligatory dashboard engraving that says "Personally Built by 5 Million Porsche Fans."
As a way to turn at least one virtual thumbs up into its more meaningful physical-world equivalent, Porsche is holding a contest to win the chance to drive the car at Britain's Silverstone racetrack - and bring a friend - and nine lucky runners-up will win 1:43-scale models of the 911.

Magnus Walker has stopped by the Big Dog Garage again to pay Jay Leno a visit in the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage. This time, the Porsche builder brought along his 1972 911 72STR 002. Walker calls the machine his best build to date, and the car is a rolling "best of" from Porsches past, rocking some of the more attractive elements pulled from a wide arc of 911 model years. Of course, the machine also wears a few signature Walker touches, including flush-mount turning indicators, a center-hood fuel filler and plenty of louver work.
Unlike some of Walker's other creations, the 72STR 002 is clean enough to lick. Leno seems suitably impressed with the creation, and while apparently isn't typically a fan of Porsche models in general, Walker's tastefully modified 911 has him singing a different tune. You can check out the car in the video below.
