Full service history from new with original Porsche log book, fully documented records and binder several cm’s thick with receipts. Extensive history over the years with Porsche specialists including DHM Auto Solutions, Buchanan Automotive and BWA Auto. I have a spreadsheet documenting the last 20 years of servicing and am happy to share with interested parties.
Approximately $70,000 spent on maintenance in the last 20 years
Two Porsche keys, original toolkit and air compressor, space-saver spare wheel, 968 CS steering wheel, new genuine Porsche floor mats
Always garaged and regularly washed. Gyeon quartz coating applied to paint
Extremely well maintained and very reliable
Very healthy engine with excellent compression – tested recently at 180, 178, 181, 180 psi
The connecting rod bearings have been replaced less than 45,000 km ago and the car has excellent oil pressure.
Serviced every 12 months or 10,000 km since new (all the way back to 1989).
Extensive preventative maintenance performed, much of it within the last 5,000 km. This includes ALL major work that are common problems on these cars. All fluids and consumables recently replaced. Nothing to spend. Just jump in and drive. Any inspections welcome.
Everything works on the car including common neglected points such as the clock, sunroof and the hatch release button.
Much of the suspension has been upgraded to the highly desirable 968 CS specification. This includes the larger 968 CS sway bars, larger 30mm solid torsion bars, Koni height adjustable dampers (Paragon kit) with Racer’s Edge camber plates, KLA strut brace, 968 front control arm rear mounts & bushes, rebuilt ball joints etc.
Original parts will come with the sale including the factory steering wheel, front and side amber indicators etc.
I have owned for the last 3 years and it still puts a smile on my face every time I drive it.
This car has been my pride and joy and is a very reluctant listing. Only offering for sale due to a growing family. I will be back in another Porsche at some point in the future.
