Documentation

Porsche introduced the all-new for 2001 911 Turbo as its top-of-the-line model. With a 415 horsepower twin turbo engine, advanced all-wheel drive and exclusive styling, the new 911 Turbo took its place at the top of the Porsche model line and in the top echelon of the supercar category. The 911 Turbo arrived at Porsche dealerships in the United States and Canada with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $111,000 in the U.S. and $162,516 in Canada.

“Like the Porsche brand itself, the 911 Turbo has become an enduring symbol among high-performance sports cars,” said Frederick J. Schwab, president and CEO, Porsche Cars North America. “The 2001 911 Turbo is not only a technology masterpiece, but is simply the fastest, best-handling, best-equipped production car Porsche has ever offered in North America.”

A race car-derived 3.6-liter, twin-turbo six-cylinder engine gives the 2001 911 turbo staggering performance capability. Porsche derived the 3.6-liter, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine in the 2001 911 Turbo from the Porsche GT1 race car, which won the prestigious 24-Hours of Le Mans in 1998. The engine produces 415 horsepower @ 6,000-rpm and sustains 415-lb/ft of peak torque from 2,700-rpm to 4,600-rpm. Power drives through a standard six-speed manual transmission, as seen in this car. For the first time on a 911 Turbo, Porsche offered the advanced Tiptronic S five-speed automatic transmission as an option.

Porsche built the all-new 911 Turbo on the all-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4 platform; a practice it started with the previous-generation 911 Turbo in 1996. All-wheel drive, the Porsche Stability Management system (PSM), and 18-inch wheels combine to make the 2001 911 Turbo the best-handling production car that Porsche had ever made to this point.

The 911 Turbo stands apart from the 911 Carrera models with all-new front and rear styling, as well as a wider stance. Up front, the 911 Turbo features unique bi-xenon headlight clusters. Three large intake grilles dominate the lower front fascia and provide cooling air to the car’s three radiators. Together, the three radiators provide 50 percent more cooling surface than in the 911 Carrera and 911Carrera 4 models.

At the rear, Porsche widened the 911 Turbo by 2.6-inches to accommodate the 18-inch alloy wheels and massive tires. Air scoops integrated into the leading edges of the rear fenders channel air to the intercoolers, while louvers in the sides of the lower rear cover exhaust air from the turbocharger wastegates. The engine compartment lid carried an all-new two-piece rear stabilizer wing, the upper part of which automatically raises at speeds above 75-mph and lowers at 50-mph Intake air enters through the wing.

Porsche has always equipped the 911 Turbo for comfortable, long-distance touring. As the top of the Porsche model line, the 911 Turbo adds several luxury features over and above the standard equipment on the 911 Carrera 4, including full-power adjustable leather seats for the driver and passenger (with driver’s side memory), a trip computer, premium sound system and a three-spoke leather covered steering wheel with Porsche crest.

Accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity that confirms a build date of May 22, 2001 and finished in Arctic Silver Metallic with full Black leather interior; this Porsche 911 Turbo had options that included U.S. standard emissions, Black floormats with Porsche lettering, supple leather in the front and rear, AM/FM radio with CD player and front bumperette delete. Part of the standard platform includes drilled and ventilated four-wheel disc brakes with four-piston aluminum calipers and Bosch ABS, air conditioning; power brakes, steering and windows. The Porsche also is reported to have its original books and tools, plus select service receipts. It is further reported that the 911 Turbo was serviced recently and that a clean Carfax also comes with the car.

Over the production period of this model from January 2000 to May 2005; it is reported that only 11,248 were built.
