BaT Auction: 37k-Mile 2004 Porsche 911 Turbo X50 6-Speed

This post was originally published on this site

This 2004 Porsche 911 Turbo is finished in black over a black full-leather interior and was ordered new with the X50 power package. A twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter Mezger flat-six sends power to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transaxle. The X50 package increased factory-rated output to 450 horsepower and 459 lb-ft of torque by utilizing larger K24 turbochargers, revised ECU tuning, and upgraded intercoolers and exhaust. Now showing 37k miles, this 996 Turbo recently received a PPI and oil change at Porsche Woodland Hills. The car is being offered by the selling dealer in Southern California with an owner’s manual, recent service records, clean Carfax report, and a clear Wisconsin title.

The car is finished in black, and the paintwork is shown from multiple angles in the gallery below. Turbo models feature a wider track than the contemporary normally-aspirated 996, and revised bodywork accommodated the need for extra cooling. According to the selling dealer, the front bumper has been repainted and chips have been repaired on the hood and fenders.
