Hey Cool Car Fans,
A good client and friend of mine owns this 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo that he customized and asked me to help him sell recently. I get requests like this quite often, but I don’t always post them here on CoolCarGuy.com, but I wanted to put this one on my website because it’s a really cool car. If you’ve never driven a 911 it’s a really fast and fun car to drive and this one in particular has some very unique attributes that I’ll explain in detail here in this article.
|Vehicle Type: Coupe

Porsche is a fantastic brand of automobile, one of my favorites since I love the German engineering, but many times people will overlook them because they are concerned about the cost of repairs and not being familiar with the brand compared to other sports cars. There are many repair shops in most parts of the country that specialize in german vehicles, like BMW, Audi, Mercedes Benz and Porsche, so you don’t have to go to the dealership to get work done on the vehicle.
For example, I had a client with an older Porsche Targa one time that had some oil leaks. He took it to the dealership and they wanted $12,000 to do the repair, which was absurd. I took it to a local shop in Denver that I knew about and we were able to get the oil leaks taken care of with a warranty on the work for about $2,800. Many people would have paid that dealership the $12,000 and then told their friends how expensive it was to own an older Porsche Targa or they wouldn’t have fixed the oil leaks.
I also suggest to Porsche owners that they consider joining a local car club, like the Porsche Club of America for example at only $46 a year. It has been around for over 50 years with over 100,000 other Porsche Members and it’s a fantastic resource for Porsche owners and enthusiasts to get more involved with the brand and meet other Porsche owners in their area.
Below are some of the options that you will find on this 2001 Porsche 911 turbo, if you’re interested in purchasing it for your collection or as a replacement for your current vehicle. In addition to these options, my client also did some additional work to the vehicle that I will talk about below this chart.
