2001 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Streetable Race Car.
15,315 ORIGINAL Miles.
Grand Prix White.
This car was specifically built to highlight the engineering and fabrication capabilities of a respected Porsche race shop in Chicago, Rennology Motorsports. It was designed for and is capable of serious competition but has only been used for recreational track use. The shop was trying to demonstrate the ease of converting an older water cooled streetcar to an exciting track car. A crucial part of that goal was to maintain a reliable vehicle that was easy to service and simple to evaluate diagnostically. All electronic and mechanical systems function as they do on a street car with the exception of the HVAC system, which is standard for a track vehicle. The car features a hand built and heavily modified m96 2003 S 3.6l engine that was enlarged to 4.0 Liter. The motor was dyno tuned to output approximately 425 hp and built to extremely precise tolerance levels. From engine through brakes and suspension, every upgrade possible was addressed to produce a fast, fun, safe and reliable car.
