This Carrera S is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.8L flat-six engine rated at 355 HP and 295 lb.-ft of torque.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission that can be shifted automatically or manually using the gear selector or buttons mounted on the steering wheel.  Acceleration from 0-60 MPH is reached in approximately 5 seconds with a top speed of nearly 180 MPH.  Standard routine maintenance has been observed and the last service was completed by Porsche Hilton Head in April of 2021 at 45,805 miles.

    @jlheslop - thanks so much. I appreciate your quick response. I actually saw this car on Pcarmarket last year when you bought it!

  • jlheslop (seller) 2 days, 8 hoursago

    @Capeking77 The local Porsche dealer has serviced the car and did not recommend any IMS work, nor have I had any problems with it, or anything else for that matter, less the Ram Jacks and Pump for the convertible top, which I replaced last month. The rear suspension seems fine to me, I have not noticed any issues, and again the local Porsche dealership has not recommended any suspension work. As an aside, the dealership wants to buy the car and I'm using their appraisal as a guide regarding the reserve price I set.

  • Capeking77 (registered bidder) 2 days, 10 hoursago

    Good morning @ seller. Back with two more questions.
    1. Has the IMS ever been recommended or have you had any issues?
    2. The rear suspension appears to be soft (based on the previous listing’s video last year. Does the suspension need replacement or serving?
    Thanks

    @Capeking77 - wash spots, no chips. all service records that were with the car when I bought it are included, as are all service records during the period I've owned it. The Carfax report reflects the services and service dates that are in their system.

  • Capeking77 (registered bidder) 3 days, 10 hoursago

    Photo 18 of the hood shows spots on the hood, are those chips or just spots from a wash? Also, you mention regular servicing - are all records included?
