    do you still have to pay the auction fee with a Buy Now ?

  • siabond26 1 week, 6 daysago

    @SShrem80
    If your budget is at 80k, then you should consider getting a 993 C2 instead or maybe you can get a car loan for the remainder of the purchase price so you could be able to purchase this GEM!

  • SShrem80 1 week, 6 daysago

    @siabond26 I cant swing much past 80k

  • siabond26 1 week, 6 daysago

    The Buy Now price is $96,500. I think it's a very reasonable and fair asking price.

    Absolutely gorgeous.

  • siabond26 1 week, 6 daysago

    A 1998 S (993 C2S) Guards Red over Grey with similar mileage with 'Branded Title: Not Actual Mileage' with 7 prior Owners recently sold for $83k (including fees) at a different car auction site. Since this 993 S has a clean title with only 4 owners, it's definitely worth north of $100k, anything less than that will be a bargain.

  • jsaban (seller) 1 week, 6 daysago

    @SShrem80 Yes, last service was on November 13th, 2018 at Motor Werks Porsche dealership in Barrington, IL. The miles at that time was 46,696 and the oil and filter were changed as well as brake fluid was flushed. At that time they also performed a multi-point inspection and advised that no other work is needed or recommended. The current odometer reading is 46,828 as I drive the car about 75 miles a year.

  • SShrem80 1 week, 6 daysago

    @Two_tone_Tommy yup you are right thought i t was on 993 as well
    My bad

  • Two_tone_Tommy 1 week, 6 daysago

    @SShrem80 IMS issue ?!?!

    No Air-Cooled cars ever suffered from IMS issues. Are you commenting on the correct auction ?

    so car was last serviced 20 months ago? how many miles put on in that time? any documentation of the stuff done on the car? IMS issue?

  • jsaban (seller) 1 week, 6 daysago

    @BLK87911 Yes, for the last 4 years that I have had this car I have not driven it much, which is why I am selling it. I have quite a few other cars and motorcycles which I rotate driving. I don't have paint meter readings for the car, but the paint is all original and looks great. The car has no oil leaks and had a full inspection at the Porsche dealership the last time I changed the oil in November 2018.

  • jsaban (seller) 1 week, 6 daysago

    @Jaeusa Unfortunately, I was not able to get paint meter readings for the car. The car is all original paint and the paint looks great.

  • Charlie83 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    Were any of the rock chips touched up or left as is?

  • SC1980 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    @rcannon911 Right, as the link says, the factory aluminum option did not include the Carrera S on the dial.

  • rcannon911 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    @SC1980 Actually I have seen pictures of the Carrera S Aluminum dial with Carerra S Logo.

  • SC1980 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Charlie83
    Carrera S isn’t present with the white dial option.

    @Charlie83 To my knowledge the gauge has not been replaced, but I can look at records to verify

  • jsaban (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Charlie83 No cracks or warping on the dash

  • Charlie83 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    Also was the rev gauge replaced? Anyone please correct me if I am wrong but I thought all c2s models shows CarreraS on the bottom of the rev gauge?

  • Charlie83 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    Any cracks or warping on the dash?

  • jsaban (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Yopurp The car has been routinely serviced at Porsche dealerships with a clean bill of health each time. I will try to upload the service records in the next few days.

  • Yopurp 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    Can you post the last major service records? Has it had a PPI or similar inspection done? DME readout?? Anything showing the health of the engine and electronics? Most sellers do this up front to enable easy remote bidding/buying.

  • jsaban (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Charlie83 I do not have current paint meter readings, but prior to my purchase of the car the pain meter readings were all good. The car is a driver and has normal rock chips.

  • jsaban (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @amardeil The car has not been painted and has no damage

  • c2silver 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    Its been over two an one-half days, and seller has not responded to any questions!

  • siabond26 2 weeks, 4 daysago

    I think the 993 S and the 4S are the most comfortable, refined, fun to drive, dependable and the most beautiful, rare and the most exquisite compared to any other air cooled 911. Also, there is significantly an increasing demand and higher interest for the 993 compared to any other air cooled 911. The 993 is a total GEM all around and this is such a gorgeous car. The 993 will continue to increase in value/price every year because it has a sweet spot and it's the most favorite among the hearts of every air cooled 911 enthusiast. Good luck!
