It comes equipped with a Tiptronic 4-speed automatic transmission paired with an air-cooled 3.6L flat-six engine. Routine service was addressed through Beverly Hills Porsche for the first few years on the road with more recent maintenance carried out by Red Line Service, Aurel & Dons, and TRE Motorsports. Currently showing just over 54k miles on the odometer, this lifelong California car is now being offered for auction by its longtime owner out of Los Angeles.
