Default 3.6 turbo (Damage HELP) pics.

Hello there porsche enthousiasts,

My name is Jonas and I live in Holland (so excuse me for my bad english).
I already own a wonderfull 911 SC targa from 1983 and I am looking for a good Porsche 911 3.6 Turbo.
When I was looking on the internet I came across this car:

I was wondering if somebody is familiar whis this car and can tell me something about it?? I hope so, because I might be interested.

Looking forward to some reply's

greetings Jonas

This car has been advertised all over the place for the last 6 months. If the car was as advertised I suspect it would have been sold long ago. That's not to say that its not what it is, but it seems a little strange to me. Good low mile 3.6 Turbos are very rare....

JDHertz11 - OT, but is the above meant to be ironic? In your signature you refer to your 993 turbo as a "1997 993 Twin Turbo" which of course is long hand for 993TT...

No, but when a car does not sell after this long, usually it is for a good reason.

the car is sold by now, and it is going to be shipped to the netherlands.
I thought it was worth the risk, and everything seems to be original and in good shape.

no, thats a bit difficult because I live on the other side of the ocean.

I also think these cars are worth a bit of (possible) work. I know what you think. I'm taking a big risk by buying this car, but I am willing to take it.

I just love 3.6 turbo's. There is no substitute. It's the last true big boys turbo.

I will keep you posted....

Best luck although it is sad to see another leaving the US. Pretty soon there will be very few left here.
