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.

The Porsche 911 Turbo has a legacy of being a tough car to drive. With a ton of power set right over the rear wheels, its reputation is to lose control as soon as the driver stops concentrating. However, this isn't quite so true anymore. The modern ones are tamed through technology with things like hydraulically controlled engine mounts, not to mention all-wheel drive. In its latest video, Autocar tries to decide whether 25 years of progress really makes the turbo a better vehicle.

It's summer, so what better version to compare than the 911 Turbo Cabriolet? In one corner, Autocar has the latest and greatest 2014 version pumping out 513 horsepower and 486 pound-feet of torque with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Its challenger is a 1989 911 flatnose convertible sporting 326 hp and 347 lb-ft of torque. It's a truly rare car in the UK with only eight of them remaining on the roads in that region.
Granted, this test isn't so much a battle as it is a comparison. There's no question that the modern 911 would beat the classic in practically every objective category. What the video aims to find out is whether the flatnose is better in subjective measurements like its "feel." Scroll down to watch these two droptop Porsches square off.
The new Macan may be getting all the attention lately, but Porsche hasn't forgotten about its larger crossover - the one that put it on the map in 2002 and on the road to profitability, with over half a million sold so far. So to keep the Cayenne at the top of its game, Porsche has announced several key upgrades for the 2015 model.

For starters, Porsche has updated the Cayenne's appearance with new front- and rear-end styling. The front bumper, fenders and hood are entirely new, with air fins flanking the nose to direct air into the intercoolers (each model now being artificially aspirated), and new bi-xenon headlamps and daytime running LEDs on every model but the Turbo, which goes all-LED. Around back there's also new taillights, tailgate handle, lower rear fascia and exhaust pipes. Meanwhile the interior has been upgraded with a 918-derived sport steering wheel and reformed rear seats with available ventilation.
The bigger news is under the engine bay, where Porsche is offering four choices. The base model is gone as the range starts with the Cayenne Diesel, followed by the Cayenne S, the new Cayenne S E-Hybrid and the top-of-the-line Cayenne Turbo. The Diesel model carries over the same 3.0-liter turbo diesel with 240 horsepower. The Cayenne S however packs a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 that's similar to the one found in the Macan Turbo and packs the same 406 lb-ft of torque but more power at 420 hp, 20 more than either its little brother or the model it replaces to reach 62 mph in 5.2 seconds.
Each year, the Vienna International Motor Symposium showcases some of the up-and-coming technologies automakers are engineering for the use in passenger cars, and Volkswagen AG CEO Martin Winterkorn revealed some big developments VW is working on for its future products. Winterkorn discussed a multi-faceted approach that VW is looking to reduce its fleet fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
Some of the bigger news he discussed included a "high-performance" diesel engine that will produce 134 horsepower per liter and a 10-speed DSG automatic transmission. While no specific applications were mentioned, we can only hope this is for the Audi R4 we keep hearing about.
Another topic he touched on that caused us to perk up our ears was had to do with VW's plug-in hybrid technology. While we know the PHEV versions of the Audi A3 and Porsche Panamera are on the way, Winterkorn also said that these two models will be followed up by Golf, Passat, Audi A6 and Porsche Cayenne plug-in models. Scroll down for a press release highlighting the automaker's future fuel-saving initiatives.
