I'd suggest adding some more detail to the CL ad, particularly about the heater repair and bodywork (which I did not see in the pics). Without more detail, heater issues in a used car ad suggest to me a leaking heater core or blown head gasket. Otherwise why is it not fixed?

I had a 180K plus mile 944S2 that was fine, and my black 968 is over 160K, mileage is no big deal for these cars.
Neither of those conditions exist. My shop wasn't great on the system of doors and sensors in 944 heat, and I wasn't too worked up about it so i procrastinated. Diff is factory Torsen, I believe. Is original to the car.

Sure, but I am just telling you what I think when I read an ad like yours. "Heater does not work" means to me a bypassed and leaking heater core or a BHG. Adding text to a CL ad is free so it might benefit you at no cost to add some more detail.

Good luck with the sale.

Thanks for this! I have amended the listing. Been very busy with it all or I would have posted sooner. Again: thanks.

I was going to ask you guys about that car. Seems a little fishy because the same ad was up last month then taken down but car never went on eBay like he says, now the ad is back up.

"18 inch Gemballa Rims & racing suspension installed BY Gemballa ($12,500)
---These rims are $800 per rim and $329 per tire at today's price

This car is ALOT faster than a regular 968!"

Not sure I can see the connection...maybe someone can help me out.

That 968 has been for sale here for at least six months. I think the owner doesn't know what he's talking about. Awful photos taken at a gas station, zero evidence to back up performance claims... Something's rotten in Issaquah.

Anyone familiar with this car? It looks like a good deal, although it's been listed a few times before.

Don't bother messaging through kijiji - the guy does not answer (which I consider a bit of a red flag).

Looks clean. I've never seen a 968 with that front cover in front of the airbox, is that a Euro specific feature?

Early cars had them, 92 and 93 I think.

Was deleted along with the back cover in the engine bay itself, to cut down production costs I believe.

92 and early 93. Theory was they saved about $50 a car. It was a popular concept in the book "Wheels".
At least they didn't use spaghetti for timing belts. I like 'em so collected a few. Put 'em in my 94's and 95's.
