The sale of this Turbo will include a set of two keys, original books and accessories, the painted hardtop, service records and a clear title.  If you have been in search of a well-maintained and handsomely equipped Mezger Porsche, this 996 Turbo Cabriolet makes an excellent choice.

    @rbrunson : I have asked pcarmarket to post an additional photo re your concern. 2 small defects in silver paint near intake. Probably occurred when I installed Rennlist screens behind intakes. I did not receive records from Scottsdale Porsche, but have posted photo of doc showing that it did complete inspection before sale to me. As for making this sale contingent on an inspection, respectfully, I think that it is too late in the bidding process with less than an hour left. Thanks

    It looks like there is some damage to the drivers side front bumper at the intake vent. Can you provide some details?
    Would you agree to an inspection at a local dealer at part of sale at my cost?
    Do you have the maintenance records available?

  • Jjason3131 (seller) 1 month, 3 weeksago

    Note to Seller: Without a DME on a car like this, it will likely keep the bids down, based on what we’ve seen in other auctions. Looks like a great car, otherwise. GLWTS

    @Sandei01 : I don’t have a DME report. I haven’t used the hardtop much. Once when I bought the car and drove it from Scottsdale to California, and one or two other times when I drove to LA.
