    A 2011 TT sold on BaT for $184k with fees on Monday. It had 20k fewer miles but I have to think the price here has a way to go still.

  • foual011 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @groach I’ve only put limited miles on the car so I’ve not done that.

  • groach (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Sorry if I missed this...have the spark plugs been changed? Thanks

  • foual011 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Emmmar911 Unfortunately, I don’t believe I have that picture. However, as previously mentioned, the car was parked and someone else trying to park clipped it slightly but just enough to scrape the paint off in one spot. Entire bumper was replaced. Again, you can see earlier comments regarding the bumper.

  • foual011 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @two2one No flood or water damage. In fact, during my ownership, I didn’t take the car out unless the weather was dry. Lastly, the car has spent each and every night in my heated garage.

  • Emmmar911 1 month, 1 weekago

    With the damage to the front bumper just occurring early last year (and wasn’t 2020 a peach?!) can you post a phot of the damage? Thank you.

  • two2one (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Has the car been subject to flood damage or other water damage?

  • KvN (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @foual011 Good for you Sir; she's a beauty. GLWS.

    Q: does anyone out there agree; those look like GT2 wheels??

  • foual011 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Thank you all for the interest.
    This car is going to sell and I don't want to waste anyone's time. Therefore, I'm lifting the reserve and will let the highest bidder have the car.

    @Beandip83 - sorry y’all…just read that the front bumper was replaced…

  • Beandip83 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Are my eyes playing tricks or does the front bumper seem like a slightly different shade of silver? Any information on whether the front bumper was resprayed?

    @MtOpenroads The DME report and image of the coolant reservoir showing no cracks has been added to the gallery. The tire tread depth measures 7/32 front and 5/32 rear.

    @userabc123 https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a22548385/manual-porsche-911-turbo-997-for-sale/
    Road and track stated that 2012 was the last year in this article.

  • userabc123 (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @jsalerno2 incorrect. There were about 15 cars produced in a 6 speed manual for the 2013 model year. They were the last of the 997.2 turbos with 3 pedals.

  • foual011 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @MtOpenroads Yes, that center cap (front right) has already been replaced / it’s on the wheel now.
    I believe the tires are in great shape but I don’t know / can’t estimate the remaining “life”.
    There are no spider cracks on the overflow.

    Seller - beautiful 997.2. There appears to be a missing center wheel hub cap logo on the right front rim. Do you have this? Also, hard to tell from the pics, how much life remains on the tires? Are there any spider cracks in the plastic on the radiator overflow reservoir? Thanks for your help!

    I have ridden in this car and when the seller told me the mileage I did not believe him, I had to look at the odometer for myself. It presents like a vehicle with less than half it's mileage...and I say this as a highly OCD collector and enthusiast who only buys ultra low mileage, Condition One cars (like the 997 GT3 I'm kicking myself for not bidding higher on this past week here).

    Only about 260 997.2 manual turbos came
    To the US. In 2012 maybe 80 or so manual turbos…rare car right here. Some prefer the mezger, but Id take this one all day.

    Wow this is a rare car. One of about 88 made in a manual for 2012. The last year of a 911 turbo with a stick.

  • foual011 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @TomC I purchased the vehicle with these wheels. I do not have the original set up.
    To the best of my knowledge, the front bumper is OEM.
    The bumper was fully replaced / not simply repaired.
    They only painted the front bumper, they did not blend into the rest of the car.
    Will provide DME report Monday morning.
    The car has had no major work done on it but I have a few of the maintenance records.

  • TomC (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    I forgot to ask do you have the original wheels?

  • TomC (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    good looking example.
    When the front bumper was replaced , was it with OEM parts?
    How much of the car has been repainted if any?
    Do you have a DME report?
    Any previous service receipts or work orders?
    Thank you
