    Good to see healthy bidding for the Mezger 996. Low miles and excellent interior make this a great buy. Good luck to both B&S.

    A DME report has been added to the listing.

  • 0to60 (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @Blockhed79 That is correct. It has a speedtech muffler system installed.

  • 0to60 (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @Blockhed79 To my knowledge it has not been flashed. I will have a DME and Over Rev report within the next 24hrs to provide.

  • Blockhed79 1 week, 2 daysago

    @0to60 So looks like the car has an aftermarket exhaust is it also flashed?

  • 0to60 (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    @darkstar04 I will check the records to see if there is a DME report and if not look into getting one to provide to interested parties.

  • 0to60 (seller) 1 week, 3 daysago

    @Blockhed79 Due to weather today we could not move the car out of storage and on to a lift to properly photograph the undercarriage. We should have clear weather tomorrow to allow for this task to be completed. Thanks

  • Blockhed79 1 week, 3 daysago

    @0to60 are these underside photos still coming?

  • darkstar04 1 week, 3 daysago

    Can you please provide the DME/Over Rev report?

  • 0to60 (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @Blockhed79 We will be providing undercarriage photos this evening.

  • Blockhed79 1 week, 4 daysago

    Any underside shots? Exhaust stock or speedtech unit?

  • Chuck246cp 1 week, 4 daysago

    Jacksunoco and Reingmeister, I agree with you both wholeheartedly. If this car had factory aero, X50 and sexier wheels, it would certainly fetch more. That being said, , these cars are a bargain in the " second tier fast" group (high tier is low 3's) and this is an excellent example. I have one myself. Not sure they are the next 993's though.

  • Blockhed79 2 weeksago

    @Russbaribault I've seen this car for sale for over a year, I think ask was low 70s.
    Gorgeous but wrong interior for me

  • Jacksunoco 2 weeksago

    I own a 2001 Turbo best bang for the buck reliable and scary fast . They have to be the most under rated Porsche cars in history , just because people dont like the head lamps . I think the headlamps are great and in 20 years these will be the next 993 . A great value Mezger power what else would one want with out spending $100k .
