VEHICLE STORY

I have owned 3 porsches up to now, add the best for me a 996 3.4l. The first 2 911's 997, a 2005 Carrera 911 and a 2008 911S and a 2017 Porsche Macan Basic. All good fun cars, but this 2000 911 that only weighs in at about 2800#'s is for me a beast in sheeps clothing. Why, it corners and sounds like a sports car, and makes me smile a big smile. Why don't they let us put vid's on here. I want to let you hear what makes me smile. Time for some of the rest of the story. I bought this car with only 41500 miles. I took a leap of faith that it was just what I was looking for. I bought it from a PCA (Porsche Club of America) member with extensive chats, photo's and some vid's. I got the car here in NC in just 3 days from Minn. I did not get it inspected from a Porsche dealer. It was a leap of faith to buy without even driving it. It paid off, and I decided to put money into it and fix the things that are known issues. So, IMS, clutch, oil-air separator, water pump, alternator free clutch pulley, replace all brake fluid which is directly related to the clutch-kit, mass air flo sensor, Pirelli P-Zero's, 4 wheel alignment, new drive belt, spark plugs, coil pak's, rear seal, and finally the mufflers. Phew! Yes, an investment, but the return is shear bliss in my commute to work. I got most of the parts from Pelican, and the labor between 2 sources, one independent porsche repair, the other a highly rated Porsche dealer. Maybe later I will tell just how much this has cost.
