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

On the one hand I think the X51 option was $15k when new. And if you're going to collect a 996, this would be the one.

On the other, $84k buys lots of other toys.

I think the car sales one is an 80k car all day long and surprised it hasn't sold. X51 option was 21k and a terrific option with so many improvements over standard - and hardly any buyers ticked the box on a standard C2 car 996 or 997. 80K puts it against the 997.1 C2 and just over the 996c4s. I know what I'd choose all day long. And it's rare.

Not sure it is the one to collect. I would have thought early 996.1 C2 was the go - original headlights and not e gas

If the white one falls through, there is always this. Light on details and interior shots

IMO - Ditch all the aftermarket body kit cr**, headlight covers and rims and it could be decent.

Nope. 

I’ve been busy at work and I was about to call Buiks to plan a PPI over lunch.

Oh well, it wasn’t meant to be!

Good luck to who ever grabbed it.

This seems very well looked after. Really don’t know if I’d end up regretting buying a tip instead of holding out for a manual though ? https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-2003/SSE-AD-5578134

Price seems “ok”... Maybe $50k and it would be “good buy”?

You would (regret it). If you want manual buy manual

All comes down to how much you're prepared to pay for a manual.  I was in the same boat and basically it came down to a manual being $10k above my budget.  $55k for IMS done compares to what I paid (for one without IMS done), presumably a bit of room for negotiation so you could come out right.  Having said that, if my budget was higher, I would have bought one of the manuals that have been available for around $60k.

What's the story behind this one? Why did it need an engine rebuild at 130,000 kms?

 Coz it was f....d maybe? ?

I was under the impression that the turbo engines were super reliable. Bulletproof some might say!

Yeah - I wondered about this too.

OK, so it went into the workshop for a gearbox fix (that the Factory caused??) and ended up with a motor rebuild as well. Signs of a very hard early life?

Perhaps one of the past owners was a boost junkie. How else do you kill a drive train in 130,000 kms?

I imagine a ph call to autohaus would clear it up.

Where's the fun in that?
