One of the most unique drift cars to ever hit the scene was JIC Magic’s 993 Porsche. It features a 3.8L twin-turbo powerplant and is a 1996 lightweight Euro model. But it didn’t just get sideways, tackling the road race/time attack course as well with an impressive 650-hp.

There’s a lot of history behind the race car including an overall win at the Redline Time Attack Summit Point event in 2007, 2nd place finish at Englishtown in Formula Drift in 2008 and a 2nd place finish in the Unlimited Class during 2008′s Super Lap Battle.

For those unaware, JIC Magic specializes in suspension components and the 993 Porsche features plenty of their wares. The engine was built by Ziel Motorsports and the current asking price is $125,000. The auction states that the car has a newly rebuilt engine and is ready to race.

We have to admit, the car looks much better without all the graphics. It’s a mean little machine that we definitely miss seeing out on the track.
