The exterior of the car is finished in white, race livery has been removed, leaving it white with red trim providing contrast on the mirrors, rockers and rear splitter.  Paint does show expected signs of track use – no body damage or dents but various scuffs and marks.  It was treated to a full paint when being prepared by Fiorano, with many modifications for the track.  The hood is lightweight fibreglass with two prop rods for reinforcement when raised, with four hood pins for stability at speed. the pop-up style headlights remain operational, with the stock 951 front treatment still in place, and are demonstrated in a short video on this listing.

Wipers and washer nozzles remain equipped, same with all glass – hinting that this car can be operated on the street – this differentiates it from track-dedicated cars:  it can be driven from home on track days.  A window net for the driver’s door is included (and photographed).  Porsche Cup II wheels are installed and measure 17”.  Toyo Proxes 888 track tires need to be replaced and are sized 235/40R17.  Other track treatments on the exterior include a tow hook installed front-and-centre, disconnected sunroof and removed hatch latch.  All glass is labelled Sekurit.

The track-ready nature of the 951 is in evidence in the cockpit.  The car is outfitted with a roll cage as well as NASCAR bars inside the door openings with 2018 inspection labels.  Door cards are in place but have been modified to include only minimum functions for weight savings.  There are two race seats by MOMO with FIA standard labels and a MOMOCORSE racing steering wheel.  Seats show wear and are fitted with five-point harnesses.  Most of the stock dashboard remains in place and shows some cracking, though it has been modified for track-dedicated functionality, please see the gallery for detail – of note:  centre-mounted AEM gauges for adjustable boost, hot side, mixture.  Carpets have been removed and a fire extinguisher is installed in the passenger’s side footwell.  The stock instrumentation remains, a sign of the Turbo model is the “BAR” boost gauge for the stock turbo, distinct from normally-aspirated 944s – note that there is a centre-mounted Boost gauge.  The rear bench has been removed, same for air conditioning, sound insulation and audio.  Fire suppression elements and wiring for a cool suit are installed.

The stock 2.5 litre engine has been stroked to displace 2.8 litres.  Owner suggests that with the turbocharging, the car can produce over 300 rear-wheel horsepower, delivered to the rear wheels by the stock 5-speed transmission.  The track modifications list is extensive:  all monoball suspension, race control arms, race oil pan, oil cooler, upgraded intercooler, sway bars, Koni custom race shocks (owner relates that these alone cost approximately $15k new), custom-built turbo running with relatively low boost.  Curb weight is approximately 2600 pounds, corner-balanced.  There are two transmissions included with the car – S2 for long tracks and stock for shorter ones.  The uninstalled transmission needs servicing and is what appears in protective plastic in the cargo area, as seen in the gallery (and making itself heard in the driving videos).  Brakes are period 928 items, known as “big black” per the seller.  On picture day, the odometer was obscured by a label which has lost adhesion – the first of six digits is a “1”, we believe we see a “3” as the second through the label and this car is being sold “TMU”.

The owner has treated the car to extensive maintenance throughout his ownership to maintain track-readiness and safety.  An incomplete list of detail includes:  bottom end, top end, shocks rebuilt and control arms replaced, steering rack replaced and replaced bushings all around.  Items needing attention include tires and a battery.
