No accidents, no issues. Runs perfectly, as you would expect for a car with this low mileage. Fabulous Targa top is like the worlds biggest sunroof for that size car. Cold outside? Heated seats make it fun. And the Targa is the only 911 with a rear hatch that opens for more storage, in addition to the "trunk" up front. It's fast, sporty, and the six-speed manual transmission makes it fun. Clean title, clean carfax. Scheduled services and regular oil changes.

All critical original Porsche 996 engine parts (those which typically fail in 10% (according to Porsche) of 996 models with 20,000 to 90,000 miles on the odometer, such as Porsche's RMS (rear main seal), IMS (Intermediate Shaft Bearing), AOS (Air/Oil Separator), etc. were all inspected. IMS was replaced, for peace of mind. It was not faulty. This is an incredibly beautiful automobile that looks new and was recently serviced to provide a long and reliable life, to deliver exceptional satisfaction and driving pleasure to its owner well beyond reaching 250,000 miles on the odometer. A few minor cosmetic blemishes from when I purchased, but overall a very lovingly cared for, garaged vehicle.

I had been searching for over a year for this exact color combo in a Targa, with relatively low miles, and purchased from a couple that used it as a weekend car (purchased at 48,000 miles). I am not the original owner. I am generally very picky about that, but it was crystal clear to me this car had been meticulously maintained, garaged, loved, etc. for it's entire life. Along the same vein, I did not get much as far as records from that owner because they were not provided with any service records from the previous owner. It had been maintained at the dealer in the San Jose area, but due to privacy issues, they cannot release to a new owner. After getting the pre-purchase inspection, I was confident it was a perfect find for me. It has not failed me. I have had it just over three years now, and hands down has been the best car I've ever owned, with minimal maintenance. My dad has had 3 (air cooled) 911's over the years, and has had like experiences during the lifetime of his ownerships with them. He's driven all of them well over 200K miles (one to 320K) on original clutches, so I've been hopeful I'd have the same luck on the clutch front, but so far, so good, given it's reliability in all other areas.

In my opinion, this car is a gem, and I'm not desperate at all to let it go. I only have it listed because I can't transport my nephew in it due to the carseat/airbag issue. That said, I'm not considering any low ball offers, no scams, no trades. This car is in fantastic shape. Text me questions or to arrange a meeting. Thanks.
