    I have the exact same radar install in my GTS. It’s awesome! Good luck with the sale. I love this unique color.

  • KebShift (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    You can still
    Verify the VIN because regardless it’s on the Canadian sticker as well as on the windshield. It’s a US car so maybe everyone should stop making a big deal out if it.

    I’m bidding on an air cooled ending today, I already own a GTS and it’s a fantastic automobile. Good luck to future owner.

  • Lola-962 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @jaynar @9teen71 @Unclebob59, Just an FYI the US vin. sticker on my 996 is on the lower section of the door it's self. Just as, jaynar & 9teen71, mentioned. GLWTA.

  • jaynar (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @9teen71 Yup I looked up another 2011 and it’s on the bottom of the driver’s side door! I had one just don’t remember. Also had a few 993’s and that VIN decal is where this one has the Canadian label so who knows...will find out in the AM!

  • 9teen71 (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @Unclebob59 make sure it's not located towards the very bottom of the driver side door itself.

  • jaynar (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @golfinz In states that do a VIN verification prior to registration such as California yes it does matter.

  • golfinz 1 year, 2 monthsago

    Maybe slightly ignorant, but if this car is already registered in the US, does it matter if it has the Canadian vin sticker over the US vin sticker?

  • jaynar (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @Unclebob59 Hopefully you get some sort of answer before the end of auction!

  • Unclebob59 (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @9teen71 I’ll talk to my dealership, I also have good relationships in Atlanta at Porsche, thank you for the input

  • 9teen71 (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    VIN labels can be specially ordered and replaced, but the dealership's parts or service manager will not have the authority to do it on their own. Porsche factory field rep will have to be involved. Takes a little while, so you must be patient. Couple months last time I tried.

  • jaynar (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    Not your fault at all, but some other dumb individual. I've seen other cars that went back and fourth from Canada and they put their decal in another spot, not over the original :(
    I wonder if a body shop can order you another one or the dealer? I'm sure it's a hell of a process. (insert I don't know emoji).

  • Unclebob59 (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @jaynar I hate this is the case but I’m reluctant to destroy both decals to try to get to the one

  • jaynar (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @Unclebob59 I've never seen a situation like this where the Original VIN decal is covered, whoever applied the Canadian label over it is a complete moron. Do you think it would peel off? It would be a huge problem to get the VIN verification done in California...I understand it was US car to begin with...

  • Unclebob59 (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @jaynar The original is covered, see page 66 of the images. The vehicle started its life in AZ as a US vehicle

    @J4patlev Those are Sebro (OEM) slotted rotors. I chose to install those over the cross drilled

    @DB88 Thank you for your bid and interest

  • Unclebob59 (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @jaynar This is a US vehicle, I’m sorry there is no picture of the VIN label, I’m out of town and back tonight, I will post that first thing in the morning along with the actual

  • J4patlev 1 year, 2 monthsago

    The new brake rotors appear to be a different model than the stock ventilated discs. Could you share any detail into the model used?

  • jaynar (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    I don’t see a picture of the original VIN decal is that on the door? The Canadians didn’t apply their decal over the original? Hope not...

    @jas Thank you

  • jas 1 year, 2 monthsago

    Wow this is a nice spec 997. Beautiful color. And bonus points for the 9500ci, looks to be a really clean install there. Good luck with the sale!

  • Unclebob59 (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @9teen71 no paintwork that I know of and more importantly no evidence on the vehicle, I asked the prior owner the same question and received the same assurance, I had the car inspected by Porsche of Nashville and German Performance Options here in Nashville. As to why I’m selling, I have a new 718 Spyder arriving in August and I have a few too many Porsches in the stable, a 2018 GT2RS, a 2007 GT3RS that I acquired this year, a Cayman R, a 1997 Targa, my wife’s pride and joy, just need to make a little room and pass this fine vehicle on to another loving owner. The fob on the key is for the radar detector

  • 9teen71 (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    Hello! Just a few questions. Any paintwork that you know of? Is that a remote start fob in the picture with the keys? Last, why are you selling it? Thank you

  • Unclebob59 (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @SSTwin @SSTwin, I’ve owned the car since September of 2019, I’m the 3rd or 4th owner, hard to tell from the carfax. The previous owner used to do DE in the car, I do not track my cars, I prefer going to the Atlanta Porsche Experience with my son and tracking Porsche’s cars

  • SSTwin (registered bidder) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    Very nice. How long have you owned it? Any track? How many previous owners? Thanks, love the color!

  • Unclebob59 (seller) 1 year, 2 monthsago

    @GT3FZS thank you

  • GT3FZS 1 year, 2 monthsago
