Ok I’m really considering that C2 man coupe now - the one with the horrible wing. Has anyone looked at it properly? I get the feeling there’s something wrong with it - given no one has touched it. 

"upgraded recently to the series 2 3.6 litre motor with only about 15,000kms"

It has had a new engine - with all the pros (new engine) and cons (not original) that comes with... I always assumed it was sitting due to that + the worries of how an owner who would drive a car with a wing like that treated it... ?

I think it’s been $45k, $42.5k and now $39990

that replacement engine seems to be killing it.

It does seem that way. I recall an earlier post about this car stating that the non matching numbers aspect would affect its value vs a matching numbers car. I just wondered if anyone knew of any other gremlin that might be holding it back. The guy selling it seemed ok.

No personal experience with the car and at the current price seems like good value. One thing I noticed in one of the pics from the inside of the car (pic 17) looks like the sunroof may not sit properley. Also I wonder how easily that carbon interior wrap comes off without damaging the trim

The service history (I haven’t seen the stamped books) seems sketchy. Last service was over 18months ago at 6x, xxx kms.

Knock them down on price for it @Dave986 if you enquire about it

Crossing fingers for you @Dave986

Just keep in mind that Porsche used to sell these cars and tell buyers they only needed servicing every 20,000 kms.

BTW, I remember reading on this thread a kind soul who had test driven the car and said he was happy sharing his views over PM.

I have taken it for a test drive. PM me for info. 

And here's where I got the 20,000 km servicing interval.

Porsche recommend 2 years 20,000km intervals so you can’t blame the guy for neglecting the car. You’ll come across plenty more with the same sort of service history that are still worthy cars.

My 2000 996 C2 service book says otherwise ...l'll state it again fellas as I did about this car, 26th July on this thread  "book says service every 2 years or 20k and major every 4 years ….. lots on here get hung up on yearly servicing which is not mandatory". If it's done say 15ks in 18 months well that's usual for a lot of people's toys and the car would still be not due for a service for the next six months at that rate. Looks like a great price now, all things stated in the ad being bonafide

Phil has been in touch and his summary matches what I know plus it’s good to hear from someone who has seen it / driven it - the tyranny of distance.

Edit: I’d be interested to know if anyone here had put the deposit down and why they walked away.

I'd say the owner just amended the price and re advertised it. That's how a lot of cars end up as 'Sold' yet come back as a lower or usually a higher price on Carsales

Yeah, I had thought that might have been another scenario

What does everyone think the 40th anniversary is worth? I think anything in the 70’s is optimistic let alone 84k...

I think 70s is reasonable. Has X51, reasonable kms and looks good
