Hey Y'all.  I'm considering selling my 997 and thought I'd see if there was any interest on PFA before I navigate the circus that is CS.

It's a cracking car and in a spec I spent a very long time looking for.  Reality has finally come home to roost as I've realised it's a terrible daily for someone with 3 kids.  So sensibility will prevail (until I find the right long-hood that is).

Short story is

  - 2005 911 Carrera S. Black, Manual, Coupe, 96,000kms, Aussie delivered

  - All original except for an Alpine CarPlay head unit (original supplied) and Cargraphic exhaust (street version with very nice note but not too loud)

  - Engine number puts it in the larger IMS group, was bore scoped by both me at PPI (PCB) and previous owner. 

  - Perfect service history. All the 'approaching 100kms' preventative stuff has been done.  AOS, belt, starter motor, starter leads, plugs, etc.  Nick Cascone has looked after this car and I'm all about preventative maintenance so no expense has been spared.

  - Grouse factory option list includes, M030 sports chassis (very rare option and my number 1 requirement when I purchased), Sports Chrono, LSD, Short Shifter, sports seats, extended leather, and a few other tasty treats.

  - New PS4S tyres

  - I would mark it down only on superficial paint things, being a black car. Nothing outrageous - it's just not showroom quality.

I'm looking for $110k.  Car is located in Melbourne and happy for any PPI/inspection from a Porsche specialist. DM me for more info. 

Here are some snaps. You'll notice I didn't vacuum so as to promote some discussion here..

Nice looking car and a great spec. Love the sports seats, sport chrono, LSD and extended leather, not common but sought after options. With crazy COVID and all you should sell fairly quick. GLWS.

I’ve driven this car.

It’s a cracker.

Had it holding a slide on the limiter for about 75 metres so it’ll have a fairly solid range 1 over rev reading but hey, I was asked to have a go ...

OK, that’s all BS.  

If you’re in the market for one of these, as Molly said, do yourself a favor and look at it.  You won’t be disappointed.

I just looked at those photos again.  What’s with the jocks on the passenger seat?

 

1. They are ‘knickers’; and,

2. They’re not mine

Reminds me of story ...

Happened in Adelaide as it happens on a race weekend

The  lads and I were guests at a gentleman’s club one night where the tables have 2 uses.  Eating and dancing ...

Not giving  too much away so I won’t name the establishment but those of you in SA might guess if I said The Demented Nag...

So, my mate is about 48 bourbons in when a conversation with a member of staff got out of hand and he was politely told to leave.  Being a bloke, he refuses so the constables are called

They arrive and look around and my mate says “here, it’s me you’re after”.  Clever.  Try and win them over ... idiot.

So he ends up downstairs and being a good mate, after about 15 minutes (enough time for him to get a tutorial on the relevant statutes regarding drunkenness and appropriate conduct), I ease downstairs to see him talking to no less that 7 of our finest and trying to talk his way out of whatever he was getting into

Was fun to watch so I just stood there about a meter away when one of the constables turns to me and says “who are you?”

”You don’t have to answer that!” says I’mNotDrunkOfficer

Copper looks at me and raises an eyebrow at me ... 

“I’m his lawyer”

Quizzical looks all round, a few chuckles and the copper turns to my mate and says “You come prepared for anything eh?”
 

Anyway, someone buy this 997.

 One time visitor after a mate and I did a big timber decking earner, so with pockets full of cash, we treated ourselves to ''just a couple of hours'' in the city. Yeah well, that turned into gawd knows how many hours, and dropped $3700 between 2 of us 🙄😅

 We were very popular with a few employees for some reason 🤔 😅 A night I'm never going to forget that's for sure 👍

Great story for a thread bump!  It must have been an upmarket establishment, from my experience understanding the bikies are called before the cops over there...

 

Interest has increased dramatically since I dropped the price from $114k to $107k.  I'll give it a week and then I'm building a bigger basement..

I’m here to help.  A basement is a huge undertaking.  $90k cash today.
