The IMS shafts have been replaced as well as the all wheel drive bearings for the driveline, making this beautiful 6 speed sports car hug the turns. The sunroof is a great added feature that allows for the feel and sound of the racing wind, even with the electric windows rolled up. The black leather interior is flawless as well as the black exterior of this exceptional example of the 996. It also has the Carrera 4 rims with new sport tires with under 1k miles on them. Asking $18,500 obo, as it is well maintained and kept.

This is the bottom of the 911 depreciation curve right now, correct? Older ones going up, newer ones still up. Plus the “scary” IMS issue, yes, known and resolved in any of these still being driven and cared for.
With carmakers announcing last-gen ICE development, we have to face the fact that there will never be better cars than the ones we can choose right now. I, and many who hide out here, believe the peak of engineering and construction was with these models designed in the 80s and 90s.
I say find a way to buy it. We will look back on this time and all wish we had.
And I’ll just leave this here…

Forget the Versa the Nissan Kicks is the go to car now…!
Been on and off 996 market for about a year now. Biggest obstacle is a 2006 Saleen parked in my garage. I cannot think of any one single reason why I should get rid of the Saleen to make room for a Porsche in my garage. This stupid personal dilemma is something that will eat at me in the future, regardless which choice I’ll make.
996 Turbo is by far the best bargain on the market but if you can’t stretch then a C4 with its wide body is the next best option.
