What is the condition of the Porsche 911 Turbo at 1.1 million kilometers?


Apex Motorsport tuning studio employees shared the story of the Porsche 911 Turbo on their social media. The owner of a sports car regularly comes to the masters for maintenance. The last time the coupe was inspected, the odometer showed 676,854 miles (approximately 1.1 million kilometers). Despite the huge mileage, the regular engine is still installed in the car. At the same time, over the years of service, engineers practically did not interfere in the technical components of the car.

A Porsche 911 Turbo owner named Tom Thalmann bought a new sports car about 20 years ago. Since then, the man has been using the model as a car for every day. Despite the fact that this generation of the 911 Turbo is not extremely reliable, over the years of service, specialists have only once removed the engine for preventive purposes.

This happened on a run of 616,000 kilometers, when the owner discovered oil smudges. The service center removed the 3.6-liter "turbo" with 450 horsepower to check what was wrong. To the surprise of the engineers, the unit was in almost excellent condition. As a precaution, the specialists replaced the turbines, after which they installed the engine back.

After those repairs, the sports car covered about half a million kilometers. All this time, the owner continues to regularly service the car with which he does not experience any problems.

At the end of October, a six-year-old Ford F-250 XLT Super Duty with a mileage of one and a half million kilometers was put up for sale in the United States. For each year of operation, the owner drove a pickup truck for 240,000 kilometers.
