Thread: 98 Turbo S Beast available soon!

  1. #1

    98 Turbo S Beast available soon!

    1998 Porsche Targa 993 C2 only 21,000 mls. Very rare and unique. Upgraded to a Turbo S Spec and body design using only factory OEM Turbo S parts and body panels. No expense spared. This is one of Porsche's rarest combinations and also one of their finest production cars. This is the last year of the air-cooled Porsche as well. Collector quality done tastefully in the Turbo S flavor. Matched with Turbo S performance plus, with over 475+HP. Can gain up to 500+HP if programed or chip the ECU. Car converted into twin Turbo S using original matching numbers, engine and trans cases, but updated to full twin Turbo S Spec, including transmission. Tight performing ride with no, I mean no oil leaks whatsoever! I had all work professionally done with OEM parts by "Shawn" at Eurospeedz, By Design Performance and "Dan" at Speed Gallery. Here are some of the upgrades and modifications. -WED EURO RS CAM 5 BAR PRESSURE REGULATOR -LIGHTWEIGHT CLUTCH AND FLYWHEEL -MODIFIED UPGRADED TURBO -DANSK STAINLESS TURBO EXHAUST - 19 X 10 AND 19 X 8.5 RUF WHEELS ON YOKOHAMAS AND CONTIS RUF ADJUSTABLE COIL OVER SUSPENSION FRONT AND REAR -RUF FRONT AND REAR SWAY BARS -TURBO S BRAKES FRONT AND REAR -COLOR CODED SPORT SEATS -ORIG GAUGES EXCEPT THE TURBO S TACH WITH BUILT DIGITAL SPEEDO -CARBON FIBER INTERIOR UPGRADE. This is a driven car, not a garage queen.

    This car has been on and off sale a few times in the recent past. I've seen it on eBay and Rennlist I think. No? Is this mileage from the rebuild or total for the car? Is this the actual mileage for the motor. What is the ballpark price?
    Cheers,

    Please also, what's the title status? I seem to recall a similar car on ebay with a salvage or branded title.

    3 times on fleabay reserve never met

    $70K is what will do it........

    Oh my apologies, I thought I had lifted all the text.....


    This is a driven car, not a garage queen. If you're looking for a concourse showpiece move on, or let this car drive you to pure exhileration. I acquired the car in early 2002 at 9K mls with slight right front damage. I really could not believe they salvaged it for such a small loss. But hey, some folks want replacement or next to new. So it goes with insurance companies. Has and always had a clean California Title since I owned it, although Carfax will show the damage to the first owner as salvaged. PLEASE REFER TO PICTURES FOR SMALL DINGS AND DENTS PAINT IS GLOSSY BUT SUN WORN IN SOME PLACES WHY PAY 170K FOR A TURBO S WHEN YOU CAN GET TRICKER FOR LESS...I MEAN WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU SAW A 993 TARGA??? NOW HOW ABOUT A TWIN TURBO S TARGA??? THE LAST GREAT AIR COOLED PORSCHES WILL ALWAYS BE COLLECTIBLE AND THE ENVY OF MANY SO DONT HESITATE...GRAB THIS RARE CAR...SERIOUS PRICIPALS ONLY INSPECTION RECOMMENDED YOU MAY HAVE THE CAR INSPECTED BY A LOCAL RECOGNIZED AUTHORIZED PORSCHE REPAIR SHOP OR DEALERSHIP

    about the damage

    I remember when he first acquired it, right front end accident but really not deep into the structure. just a fender, a bumper a light and small misc..


    a few Porschephile, and meister mechanics have seen this car and gave it thumbs way up, quoting one of them today "this ought to be a $100K+ car"


    His first try on Ebay last Dec 06, got someone to bid up to see the reserve (was$75K..BIN $95K) and she freaked and wanted out immediatly with all kinds of excuses however I got her to pay the non-ref dep of $1K or else!!!
    Needless to say, she wont do that again! At that time bidding, aside from her exploration, had already reached $62K with 2 serious prospect with intelligent questions.

    title status is California and all clear

    but Carfax will reveal its history. how that occured is a mystery to him and I.


    small damage to first owner salvaged it back before he obtained it.
    The engine was built using the car's original matching numbers case.

    Salvage or not this car is tight and smoking HOT
    Purist! hold your tongue...you only wish you had one!

    I'm sure its smoking hot but that stain on the history of the car will affect its resale value when its time to move on. The asking price does not seem to reflect that.

    Just my $0.02; neat looking car nonetheless and I'm sure its very fast.

    Please don't. I'm getting that same feeling reading this thread as I do when I go down to the local auto mall. Where's the nearest shower?

    Really, I think you'd do better marketing this car somewhere else.
