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 Boxster and Cayman will forever nip at the heels of their big brother, the 911 Carrera, and perpetuating this tradition are the latest GTS variants, which add yet another arrow to the quiver of the plucky mid-engined platform.

The GTS' performance enhancements boost horsepower by a mere 15 and shave a tenth from 0 to 60, but Porsche's clever product planners and engineers have stuck to their familiar formula in making the Cayman GTS more desirable than the Boxster for dyed-in-the-wool performance enthusiasts. More on that shortly.
Laps around Spain's Circuito Mallorca RennArena and the nearby Serra de Tramuntana mountain range would shed further light on how the GTS differentiates itself from lesser Caymans.
Jay Leno's Garage usually focuses on looking at cars new and old, speaking to their owners and then Jay taking a drive to see what he thinks. However, Leno throws his usual shtick to the curb this week to do a full product test of the carbon fiber wheels from a company called Carbon Revolution. If you're not interested in hearing about wheels for 18 minutes, don't worry. They get mounted on a Porsche and are tested back-to-back with stock wheels, and Leno takes the 911 for a track test, too.

While carbon-fiber wheels aren't exactly a new idea, Carbon Revolution's goal is to create a lightweight, one-piece product that can be mass produced. The company even claims that it already has a deal with an OEM automaker to offer them on a vehicle in a few years. The key to the technology is that it doesn't need an expensive autoclave to be made.
In the meantime, the company's carbon fiber wheels are available as an aftermarket option for about $15,000 a set, according to the video. They weigh in at about 15.5 pounds each and offer OEM-levels of stiffness, so they could cut some unsprung mass off of a performance car. Watch here as Jay and his mechanic Bernard lap Willow Springs and give their feedback about what they think of this cutting-edge technology.
Porsche marketers are having a field day with the 918 Spyder after some last-minute tuning improved the car's performance. They now say that it's so fast it's already beaten itself. Let us explain: Using a Weissach package-equipped 918 as an example (which reduces the plug-in hybrid supercar's weight through the deletion of some interior items, more generous use of carbon fiber and magnesium wheels), the car's previous official 0-62 miles-per-hour time of 2.8 seconds has been cut to 2.6. Additionally, 0-124 mph takes 7.2 seconds and 0-186 mph is dispatched in 19.9 seconds, times that were reduced by half a second and 2.1 seconds, respectively.
In all-electric mode, a non-Weissach pack 918 does 0-62 mph in 6.2 seconds (with the package, 6.1 seconds), down from 6.9 seconds. Efficiency is also improved thanks to the final tuning. The New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) rating of a Weissach pack-equipped car equates to 94 miles per gallon, up three mpg compared to before. That's pretty good for a car with 887 horsepower!
Check out the press release below for more details on how Porsche's final tuning measures improved its flagship supercar.
