    Strange that seller starts ignoring questions in the last day of the auction. This car can probably cross the $100k mark but seller needs to be committed.

  • userabc123 (registered bidder) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    Do you have service records?

    Where is the car located

  • westcoastexoticcars 6 months, 4 weeksago

    @Pump993 We could recommend some great stacker lifts! Haha

    In regards to the paint readings what you're looking for is consistency in the panels. This variation is better than most; showing that the paint on this beautiful Turbo is in fact original. A lot of times with the newer models I.E. a 991.2 GT3RS you'll see a thickness in paint up to 15, but door and quarter panel readings in the 3-4 range. But we would love to have anyone else chime in to confirm!

    Keep in mind we are open from 9 am through 6 pm until the close of the auction in case anyone wants to lay their eyes on it this 997 in person or if you'd like to call to have any questions answered!

    Good luck and happy bidding.

    Hello all,

    Paint measurement photos are being added today. Tires are in great shape but the rears are very old being from 2011. We have decided to include a fresh set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4's or comparable tires mounted and balanced with the sale.

  • userabc123 (registered bidder) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    What is the date code on tires?

  • userabc123 (registered bidder) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    Do you have paint meter readings? Is it all original paint?

  • Blacklablel (registered bidder) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    @Harlequin_Forest yep. Range 4s are nothing on a turbo car. 5s and 6s are a bit heavy but still not a deal breaker. If this car has no paint work it will be a major league player.

  • Harlequin_Forest (registered bidder) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    31 hours since the last range 4's

    At least the owner had a bit of fun in those 14,000 miles.

  • userabc123 (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    Whats the date code on the tires? Wear means less. Lmk thanks

  • userabc123 (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    A dme for this car posted will maximize the return! Do you plan to post it so i can bid?

  • smdand 7 monthsago

    So should we expect a DME report early this week? Do you have any service records to post? Have any body repairs been reported to you by the previous owner or come to your attention after your company acquired the car?

  • Gq34 (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    Perfect spec. Love black. Best version of the best turbo left! Glws

  • Blacklablel (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    Perfect spec. Do you have a recent DME report and paint meter readings?

  • WCEC (seller) 7 monthsago

    Hello everyone,

    This is Blake with West Coast Exotic Cars. We are excited to have this beautiful Turbo listed on PCARMARKET! Please don't hesitate to ask questions and we will do our best to answer every one. Good luck to all!

  • WCEC (seller) 7 monthsago

    @SBerastequi Great questions:

    1. Unfortunately the original window sticker is not included with the vehicle.
    2. The car has front clear PPF.
    3. Rears are at 7/32", Fronts are at 8/32" w/ even wear across.

  • Alextuzzolino (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    @JAB12 ahh makes sense. I’m a short drive from the original broker in Michigan that sold it to west coast exotics. Wish I took a look at it while it was still local! Beautiful car. Should attract top dollar.

  • JAB12 (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    @Alextuzzolino Car is being sold by a dealer in California not by the original owner in Michigan. As a dealer they can reassign the title to the new buyer I suspect. Nice car, low miles and great options. GLWA.

  • SBerastequi (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    1) Is the window sticker with the car?
    2) Any paint protection on the car?
    3) Tread depth please?
    Thank you

  • Alextuzzolino (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    Did the original owner move to California with the car? Paperwork all says it’s a one owner Michigan car and has never been serviced in California?

  • kevintho911 (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    I especially like the yellow stitching; coordinates nicely with the yellow PCCBs.

  • kevintho911 (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    Gorgeous & Awesome! I feel guilty for even looking at the pictures. I'll have to hide the screen if my wife walks in.
