Better value proposition at $58K - rebuilt engine or top end at least, and I'll assume clutch and the while your in there stuff given the $25K bills .... the way I like my 20 year old and 150+Kilo cars ...

 I had a non in-depth look at this today (sorry, I did t have much time). Looks to be a nice n tidy car worth the consideration for a ppi 

 I can probably head back there Saturday morning if anyone wants me to

Obviously the seller doesn’t know much about the car he is selling I’d of thought it would be a 3.4 as well as not being the obvious typo on the model and good luck with the price.

 I'll come clean now. 

 I shook hands on a deal to buy this one last Thursday. Black/Savannah beige, 108,000kms, IMS done (with the oil feed line) new 997 clutch, Fabspeed headers and some sort of muffler. Nice clean car and the owner is a fussy mechanic. 

 To cut it short, I have various reasons to do it, yet I would need to sell the backdate to pay for it. After MUCH procrastination, coupla days of overthinking it and a long chat with the missus who is usually the voice of reason, I pulled out of buying it as I can't part with the SC. 

 He's asking $40k, yet there are a couple of people possibly looking at buying it, so hold your horse if you're interested. It's not advertised, nor will it be, so when I know it's still available I can send you the owners number.

  Cheers James

 It would be in my shed if I has the spare coin and able to keep my SC, as it's a really nice car and well looked after by the look of it and the vibe I got from the owner

 Also, many thanks to @PhilH for coming along to have a look with me. Appreciate it mate ?

Seems like a great price I’m sure it will get snapped up.

996 or Cayman me thinks

Maybe it should be Porsche Hunter because that's basically what i am doing,  I've actually been looking for months, but isn't everyone on here doing that?

  I'd go for a 996 personally. Have driven both, like the Cayman yet prefer the 996 for the little more room inside for my lanky legs (over 6 foot)

  If it was black on black, I dare say it would have been a much harder decision for me not to buy it

 Happy to accept financial donations to look around for cars underneath the Carsales radar mate ?

Lots of bang for buck in a 996...

Holy crap @LeeM that must've been a tough few days, seems like a very good deal on a very nice car...I've already got one and it's had me thinking if I need two! But I totally understand not being able to part with your SC backdate.

 It was a sleepless coupla nights I can assure you. All in all the missus made some very valid points after I've put a fair amount of work into it, and said she would prefer I put a few grand into finishing the body and paint on the SC over time and be happy, rather than buying something I don't really want just to put some cash off the house

Lee sounds like the deal of the century! I understand the sleepless nights but reckon you made the right call in the end. The other option would be to buy it, use it for a couple of months and flip it.

 That was an option and the extra cash would be nice, though I really can't be arsed dealing with it, and have no room at home unless I knock out a wall in the mancave

Think outside the box. Knock out the wall dividing the mancave from the house...  ;)
