I concur. I have that wheel on my 1999 car as well, and it’s on the options sticker as 436 - “3 spoke steering wheel”

@JWM @D2000 thanks, learn something new every day.

It's on my list as I reckon I am back on the hunt to upgrade the 986 to a 911 when I return from the US at the end of July.

This one and a nice white one in Victoria.

 

Also saw a blue Targa at a dealer. I have read some bad publicity on these modern Targas (just a big sunroof), anyone here have first hand experience with them?

Yeah, pretty certain that is the one that sat at Richmonds for quite a while.... I looked at it (not to PPI stage), and it looks like a great example of the model with the bonus of a rebuilt motor.

   I thought it looked familiar 👍

 He lives at McCracken It was at the Porsche club display a few weeks ago. Nice car and well looked after, though the headlight covers will put a few people off. I like them personally. Might be a tad over priced at the moment too. The gent has the onset of dementia, so it's a very reluctant sale

Seems like a mix and match of a few things - GT3 mk2 wing + mk2 side skirts and 997 GT3 wheels and that k&n filter is no good - it's confused but easily fixable!

Sad to hear the reason he’s selling. It looked pretty good in the flesh. The body kit and wheels look great on it. I thought the 99 model had the three spoke steering wheel?

It does look like a nice example. An engine rebuild adds value, but I'm wondering how bad engine damage was to warrant a replacement block🤔 Could this have put extra stress on the g/box depending on type of failure. Surely no longer matching numbers now, which detracts from value.

It seems a fair price considering rebuild plus most people would take an offer

I agree with your comments. There's also a black 996 on Gumtree at same price point. I'm currently standing on the fence wondering which way to jump. Low km @ 60k or high km 45-50k. Engine rebuild certainly a plus.

Have you driven one yet? If not you can take mine for a spin.Does it have to be a manual or are you open to a tip?

Not driven one yet, thanks for offer of a spin, never got a chance to drive my brothers. I don't want to waste a sellers time unless it's the spec I'm chasing. If something comes up its usually interstate or black. Preference is for manual, but I was starting to run out of patience and was going pull the trigger on a blue over blue tip that was at Ezyauto Prestige a while back. I keep an eye out for a  Cayman also if it means I get a manual. Either way car will just be a weekend toy.

  Without knowing exactly which black one you mean, a friend here in SA has a 118,000km black with Savannah interior for similar money. IMS done, new 997 clutch, rims, tyres etc. I was going to buy it but pulled out last minute before he bought it. Maybe the same car, as I think he still has it

If you want to go out in mine just let me know and be careful what you say about the black ones😂😂

$54K is a huge price for that car; I dont think it will sell quickly.

Car sales generally have slowed to nearly nothing - I blame the Election. Wifey says why don't we wait till after election because we will be able to get a great deal on a new electric car!!!!! ( I remind her about NBN & slink off to my mancave to mutter & shake head).

I disagree it’s a manual it’s not a million miles off in price sure you might have to wait around for a buyer but any car will sell at the right price

I guess that why he said sensible offers invited. 

Huge price I doubt it . What’s it worth in your world? Most other manual cars seem to be about the same price this one has zero to spend on it

Price seems reasonable to me, particularly with IMS done. The only things I can see that go against it are the colours but that is my personal taste

Edit: on closer inspection the headlights and taillights look to have been updated from the ambers that would have been on it as a 1998. And the wheels are also updates but good ones.  But that all that can be put back to stock if desired

I don't understand this post at all, but then I wouldn't call my wife wifey either.
