This 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo is finished in black over a matching leather interior and shows less than 26k miles. The car was sold new at Stevens Creek Porsche in Santa Clara, California with an MSRP of $107k, optioned with supple leather and aluminum interior accents. The twin-turbocharged M64/60 3.6-liter flat-six sends power to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox, and a $3,400 service was performed in late 2018. Eibach springs have been installed, and new Michelin Pilot Sports were recently installed. This 993TT was purchased by the current owner about 10 months ago and is now being offered on his behalf by a dealer in Connecticut. The sale includes a Porsche Production Specifications certificate, 40 pages of service records, the factory manuals, a clean Carfax report, and a Massachusetts title.
