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.

Hey! Sorry I missed those two points, I’ll answer them now:
1) Brakes: The brakes are Porsche “Big Blacks” and they’re in perfect working order. I haven’t looked to see how much material is on the pads. I’ve always used the genuine Porsche rotors, not drilled or slotted since that only looks cool but they tend to crack under constant heat-cycling at the track. Solid rotors last really well, and you can go through many sets of pads to one set of rotors.

2) Heating system: The AC was deleted when the engine was built to be a race car. I can’t say that I’ve used the heat much, but the system does blow and therefore will blow heat. I left the sunroof motor in so I can tip it up (depending on who’s running the track day)and get better air flow through the cabin. That said, I have used a cool suit, which was sadly stolen out of the car, but the wiring and tie down points are still there. Highly recommend a cool suit, improves your day, and in my experience its good for faster lap times and less driver fatigue – even on lapping days where you don’t need to wear nomex.

Hi Red, thanks for the detailed response. Could you please also address my other 2 questions about the condition of the regular brakes and if the car has the heating system still in it and if so, is it functional? Thank you.

Answers to questions (I’m the owner):
The parking brake is there, and it works. It was missed by the reviewer because it’s on the left side and the window net covers it. It is in proper working condition and it holds the car from rolling. That said, I’ve NEVER used it since this is a race car and you don’t ever want to put the handbrake on when the rotors are hot – it will stick and you have a mess! 😉

Oil leaks – the car was parked for a long time, that said, there are no spots on the floor under the car. The oil pan was upgraded to a racing, (Baffled) oil pan that holds an extra 1/5 litre of oil. there is also a racing oil cooler in the car so she takes much more oil than a standard 944T. That said, she is set up to run rich, she has bigger injectors and has no cats, so there is always some darker smoke from the exhaust when idling. I’ve always focused on reliability vs. squeezing the last ounce of power out of the motor, running lean and having things go boom – you’re more likely to win a race you finish! That said, she has a custom built Cherry Turbo, sized and set up for the car, so although she has an adjustable boost controller, she has hot side and cold side boost gauges, and has always run lower boost. I’ve never blown a head gasket, although I have replaced one as part of a top end refresh. (I’ve also refreshed the bottom end)

Seats – no, the car was professionally stripped by Fiorano in Toronto. The seats, carpets, etc. were removed when the car was built. That said, she has the original power windows, and power roof, so she can race stock classes in many series. The black interior is a fancy lightweight, fire-resistant carpet that serves two purposes, 1) it looks nicer, 2) it supplies some sound attenuation. Remember, this is a race car that you can drive to the track. Other stripped cars aren’t road legal, and you would certainly have some ‘splaining to do if you were pulled over driving a car with a stripped interior and plastic windows!

What you didn’t ask – What would I do if I were buying the car from myself – I’d replace the belts, they’ve not got a lot of hours on them, but from an age standpoint, I would replace them – I’m very conservative. example, I had a leak in the steering rack, instead of tightening things up I replaced the rack. Its cheaper to replace parts and have a great weekend than it is to scrape the car off the track or walls!

Another note – I used to organize the BMW Club Schools, as well as instruct for many other clubs, Ferrari, Hanson, BMW GVC, Porsche, etc. in my heyday I was spending 30-40 days a year on the track. This car used to live at my private garage at Mosport when it wasn’t getting trailered to Watkins Glen, Calabogie, Tremblant, Shannonville, etc. My focus on reliability was a necessity as much as it is a reflection of my practical attitude. Sadly, the car’s logbook and my cool suit equipment and some misc things were stolen out of the car when it was in getting the livery removed.

Sorry, just thought of another question…do you have the original seats?

Hello, what condition are the brakes in? Do you have all of the parking brake components (lever, cables etc) to re-install in the car to make them functional again? Does it have a heater and if so, does it work? Lastly, from some of the pictures, it appears that there is oil on some of the parts under the front of the car. Are there any engine leaks or any other leaks? Thanks.
