2002 Porsche 911 Turbo with RWD Conversion

I wasn’t 100% sure I wanted to feature this 911 Turbo when I first came across it, but there’s enough to draw me in that I figured others may want a look as well. My hesitation is that we really don’t have much to go by to assess the car and, given that we’re not exactly dealing with a low stress family cruiser, uncertainty is far from desirable. But such is the world of modifications and eBay hunting. This 2002 Porsche 911 Turbo, showcasing a beautiful Cobalt Blue exterior, is now far from its stock configuration, as most notably it now delivers all of its power to only the rear wheels. We’re also told there’s much more and factory upgrades, but what those are isn’t terribly clear. My hunch is that they’re not of much significance. Of interest to me is the rear-wheel drive conversion anyway and while even that aspect resides in some mystery here it’s straightforward enough to figure out and (hopefully) the other details can be worked out through a phone call. Any 911 Turbo is going to provide spirited and attention grabbing driving; with this much rear wheel power drivers must really maintain their focus.

I don’t know enough about this sort of conversion to access its difficulty, but even if it’s an easy job as a buyer I’d want to give this car a thorough mechanical inspection by someone I trust. Without the conversion it’s still a pretty interesting 996TT. The color is rare and certainly one of the better options and the mileage remains quite reasonable so long as it has been well maintained. The RWD conversion just makes it that much more interesting. The two biggest questions I’d have: 1) Is it now running an open differential or has an LSD also been added? That it says it’s a GT2 RWD conversion could suggest there’s an LSD. 2) Has the suspension been addressed? The suspension needs for an AWD 911 Turbo and a RWD 911 Turbo won’t necessarily be equal, especially depending on intended usage. I would assume most owners who seek such a conversion are also seeking a certain rawness in the car’s driving. This should deliver that, but a properly tuned suspension will help. Though perhaps that’s something the next owner might prefer to tackle himself. If this Turbo was intended as a show car – as the ad states – then its other modifications may not have been carried out in the spirit of maximizing performance. So this 996 may be aimed at those who wouldn’t mind finding a nice example that’s already had some work, but which could use a little more personalization. Or perhaps someone who simply prefers a rear-drive setup and is less concerned about the other modifications. Either way, it’s a very pretty example and not priced too badly.

  1. It is not a difficult conversion and in fact the front diff is not considered the most reliable unit anyway and is pricy to fix when it goes bad. I won’t say a lot, but a fair number of C4 and C4S owners have made the conversion and probably a fair number of Turbo owners too, I just hang out in a non-turbo 996 forum so I know about those…. A reasonably competent DIYer can do it in their garage or driveway.

    It’s a good/easy way of getting a C2 or C2S (never offered from the factory on the 996) if you can’t find one otherwise and everything else on the car ticks your boxes.

  2. Surprised, if doing this, why not the whole GT2 thing? Add the fixed wing, etc.

  3. its my car now in anchorage alaska and its nice
