Chassis no. WP0AB29941S685346. Black over black and carbon-fiber interior. 3.6 liter, twin turbocharged methanol injected 1,050hp engine, Megaline 6-speed paddle shift gearbox, all wheel drive, Motec engine management, water cooled PFC brakes, 18-inch Megaline wheels, carbon fiber silhouette body and more.

Condition: Clean, orderly and race ready. A technology demonstration project undertaken by Scott Tucker’s Level 5 Motorsports with Kelly Moss to see just how far a “Porsche 911” could be taken. The answer is pretty far and this is a 911 in silhouette only.

Bottom Line: Staggering performance that makes even a 935K3 pale by comparison. It was bought at the Auctions America Auburn Spring auction disposition sale of the Level 5 Motorsports team in 2017 for $129,250, and the bidders must have gotten more brave since then to pay this much more for it when it will need six-figures of setup, safety and integrity updating to scare a driver silly. It is a wonder to contemplate in its complexity and sophisticated technology. On the other hand in terms of performance per dollar this may be the best value to have crossed an auction block since Auburn Spring 2017. It depends on the outlook and approach.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
