1998 PORSCHE 911 3.8 CUP

Porsche's single marque racing series, The Supercup and Carrera Cup Series, was doing quite well in 1998. The series had been running since 1990 and had transitioned from 964-based Cup Cars to 993-based cars, and was now transitioning to the new water-cooled 996 chassis. Because of that transition, only 15 total 993 Cups were produced in 1998 (the least of any model year). The 993 Cars were termed "911 3.8 Cup" cars internally and boasted 3.8l engines producing 315hp (310 in 1995), center lock rims, aluminum bonnet, plexi rear side windows, thin glass rear window, RS door panels, revised strut/shock dampening, limited slip differential, 911 Turbo brake calipers, revised racing 4 channel ABS system, integrated roll cage, single Recaro race seat, air jack system, and RS aerodynamic moldings. This particular car was purchased BRAND NEW from Porsche in 1998 as one of the 6 cars that sat at Weisach, un-raced and untouched. It ran in Porsche Club racing only and has a total of 50 hours on the chassis...TOTAL. This is, by far, the nicest 3.8 Cup in the world!
