I bought this car with around 33k on the clock in 2011 and it has been cared for by myself since. Current mileage is around 57k. I am a former Porsche dealer mechanic so nothing has been skimped or half-assed on this car. I'm honestly just starting to get bored and considering moving to something with a bit more aftermarket support. Already had the LN IMS bearing update, the stock bearing had no visible damaged when removed. Never saw the track before I owned it, only used for 5 DE events since I purchased it. This is a great dual purpose car, very quick on the track and comfortable on the street. It has had all the necessary updates/repairs/and mods to make it reliable. Needs nothing mechanically. Only issue is the typical 2nd gear grind when softly shifting when the trans is cold, after a few miles it goes away. Exterior has a minor nicks and scratches in the paint. The front lip is wrinkled from the terrible Michigan roads so it will need to be redone. Up to date on all maintenance both major and minor. I have all the maintenance records since I've owned the car. Could easily be returned to stock for street use or stripped out for race use, I can reinstall the airbags (a new clock-spring would be needed) if desired. KBB rates this car at $19,200 in "good condition". Asking $18,000. Located in Farmington, Mi (about 25 minutes from Detroit). Will consider trades for an aircooled 911, 944, 968, S2000, C5 corvette, or any interesting track cars.

I've been looking at the various ad's for this car online. Love it, but no way I can buy it. Good luck with the sale.
