    Very few cars can give you the thrill of driving like the 997.1 turbo. Porsche's formula was simple take the Mezger and place it on an all wheel drive platform. Then hold on to something cause you're gonna go...… This car is super speced I'm hoping the bidding continues.

    @fillindagarages hello, I have two recent receipts from Danbury Porsche.
    Its for an oil change, cabin filter and a couple of seals. Nothing major. The invoice totaled $921.51 at 27,596 miles on 4/9/17
    The other is for a new battery at Danbury Porsche $521.19 on 9/1/17 at 28814 miles.
    I have the body shop receipt for the accident on 7/21/15
    It states, replace rear bumper cover, replace left tail lamp, replace 3M film protection on L 1/4 and refinish L 1/4 panel. The total bill was $5888.13 of which $ 3601 was parts and $479.98 was NYC sales tax.
    Very minor cosmetic repair.

    Looks like a wonderful car. I see you put a lot of detail in the write up. This is the way to present a car. Well done.

    Noticed on the carfax that the car failed emissions testing several times.
    Does the car have a current NJ or NY emissions inspection certificate?
