This track car is located in eastern ontario, 45 mins from the ontario - us border. It is a US originated car and successful buyer will have all the documentation necessary for duty free re-entry into the US.

I've owned a number of both air and water cooled rear engine and front engine Porsches since the early 80's.  In the past few years I've been bitten by the DE/Track experience and sold my 996 C4S back in 2012 to get more seriously into the game and eventually graduate to the amateur racing level with the 944 Cup series.  After spending last summer at the track sorting the car, circumstances and priorities have now changed and track time is on the back burner.

Let me tell you about the car. It is an original "S" delivered new to Brumos in Atlanta. It was traded by the original owner in 1994 with 72k mi and continued to run as a pure street car until April of 96 with now 104k on it. At that time it was converted to a dual purpose street and track car by a local PCA Suncoast Region instructor/racer who claimed the car is setup to run D class in PCA club racing events. Looking at the expiry dates on the harnesses and the binder of receipts that came with the car, it appears he ran the car on track with street use until 2003 .... total of 4k mi.  It appears that the car sat unused from 2003 - 2011 and in spring of 2011 was returned to light street use 2k mi 2011 - 2013.

Here's what was in the car when I acquired it in spring of 2013.
  • Fully functioning Heater/AC (AC Blows cold - recent recharge)
  • Rebuilt rear brake system. New pistons, seals and powdercoated red to match fronts.
  • Front brake Big Red 993 TT upgrade with 13" cross-drilled rotors
  • 3" exhaust with race muffler (Ran on street in Florida and passes our local Ontario track sound checks no problem)
  • Stainless Steel brake lines
  • Charlie arms on front (Polished billet aluminum A arms with monoballs)
  • Charlie caster blocks (Polished billet aluminum caster adjustments)
  • Matter cage imported from Germany (Same as the cage used in the 944 cup series cars)
  • Additional oil cooler
  • Momo racing seats (both sides)
  • Brey-Krause seat support brace (Driver's side)
  • Summit Racing 5 Point Harnesses (Out of Date) ... since replaced.
  • Recent engine top end at 108k mi (Valves, seats, springs, heavy duty gasket)
  • All hoses, seals, airlines replaced
  • Rod bearings at 106k mi
  • Turbo is stock "S" running an Autothority ECU U/G set at a safe 14 lbs boost
  • Fikse FM/10 17" 3 piece lightweight racing wheels running F 245-45-17 and R 275-40-17
  • Transmission refreshed with 944S2 ring and pinion gearing for 17" wheels
  • All suspension points replaced with Del Ray rubber bushings
  • Suspension is all Porsche Motorsport
  • Corner balanced
  • Camber adjustment on cam towers
  • New front springs
  • Rear suspension is coil over with new springs
  • Wheel bearings all replaced
  • Old school "Hot Lap" timer (I haven't used it. Not sure if it is functional)
  • Helmet cooling system (The ice chest needs replacement, original included)
  • Camcorder bracket
  • Front intake for intercooler replaced with lightweight Euro fiberglass unit to increase airflow
  • Brake cooling system
  • Includes lightweight rear fiberglass bumper (Not installed)
  • 4 dash cracks
  • Door speakers removed
  • Headliner removed
  • Sunroof welded

I ran the car in DE events last year and this year at Mosport, Calabogie and Tremblant (See video June 27, 2014) getting the car sorted. We off-loaded the car from the transporter, drove it right into the garage for a fluid change and track inspection. Next day we were on the track. I was blown away by the performance and handling combo over my recent 996 AND the AC blows cold!!!.  Here's what I've done since:

  • Harness upgrade (both sides) install dated Oct 2103
  • MOMO steering wheel
  • New Nitto NT 01's mounted on the Fikse's
  • Power steering rack and pressure line
  • Power steering pump
  • Timing belts, water pump and all front engine seals (including inners)
  • Clutch master cylinder
  • Clutch slave cylinder
  • Sach Stage III clutch kit
  • Flywheel lightened and balanced
  • Set of four 17" Cup wheels
  • New BFG g-Force Comp 2 (Mounted on the Cup wheels - Great for rain, cold days)
I believe the car was street legal in Florida. Wouldn't take much to return to street duty here in Ontario. Install horn control (Included), catalytic converter (Included), remove roll cage (replace with 944 rollbar).
