    @Ace2777 good morning. Yes, because the original owner first leased the car then bought it at the end of his lease term. The records verify the same owner from the beginning as well as knowing him before I purchased the car from him.

    @dgp18 Thanks for the question. I believe that was a mistake on PCar and I missed it in the proof they sent me as well. The Pirelli's were put on the car a little over a year ago. I believe the Michelin Pilots were on the car originally. Sorry for the confusion.

  • dgp18 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Question on the tires. The description states the car has Michelin Pilot Sport tires included, but the picture show Pirelli P Zeros installed. Were the tires recently changed?

  • Ambassador-Auto (seller) 1 monthago

    @cwoodman67 No problem. Happy to help.

  • cwoodman67 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Sorry about that, missed it. Thanks for the reply!

  • Ambassador-Auto (seller) 1 monthago

    @cwoodman67 Hello. Yes, there is a DME report that has been in the photo gallery right at the end of the pictures before all the service invoices. Let me know if I can help with anything else. It is an excellent report as well showing no overrevs in 3,4,5 and 6 and only shows 1 in # 2.

  • cwoodman67 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Do you happen to have a DME report showing any over-revs?

    Ambassador - Auto: Under PCARMARKET rules, I don't think I am permitted to share my contact information with you.

  • Ambassador-Auto (seller) 1 monthago

    @BarryLe This is truly an outstanding example with a very high option list. I love the interior spec as well. Please hit the contact seller button directly so I have your information. I will reply to it with my info as well. Thanks

  • BarryLe (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Ambassador - Auto: Thanks for your help. I will make a serious run at your car as I am a life long Porsche nut. I own four Porsches at the moment. I need an extra car at my summer home which will be driven about 2,000 miles per year. Your Turbo would be about perfect for Cape Cod. All of my Porsches are heavily optioned and I love the special interior options on your Turbo. I hope I win the auction.

  • Ambassador-Auto (seller) 1 monthago

    @BarryLe yes, you are correct about the clear film. If i were replacing it, I would do the entire hood and fenders along with the front bumper and lower spoiler after it was resprayed.
    As far as the carbon arm rests. This is a place that makes the exact preproduction of them with the same pattern and finish. Go to the site and plug in 997.2 Turbo and you will find them. They are advertised for $611 for the pair and come with the hinges all complete. https://www.dbcarbon.com/

  • BarryLe (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Ambassador-Auto @Ambassador-Auto: That is great news that the front of the car has clear film on it. Can I assume then that all of the flaws that have shown up in the pictures of the nose of the car will go away if we replace the clear film? I understand that the lower spoiler did not have film and will need a respray. Can you check on the availability and cost of replacements for the carbon fiber interior parts that are damaged?

  • Ambassador-Auto (seller) 1 monthago

    @BarryLe thank you. I am not sure about the replacement carbon, I would have to look into that. As far as the nose and mirrors, they have clear vinyl on them which has some rash, but the paint underneath is excellent and does not need to be resprayed. The only thing that has some marks on the paint is the lower thin painted spoiler area which did not have vinyl on it and it’s very minor. I have close up photos in the gallery of that area. It is minor and you really have to get down and look close to see the marks. In person, the car shows extremely well.

    Seller: What a beautiful Turbo!! Is it possible to buy the OEM replacements in carbon fiber for the damaged armrest parts? It looks like the nose of the car, the exterior mirrors, and the front spoiler might need a respray to make the car really perfect.
