Just listed so worth keeping an eye on it. Once it sits for a month the price may come down.
Mine was originally listed at $8K and I got direct contact info so I could follow up at a later date. Once the ad disappeared I called and negotiated the price down to $5K and when we met face to face with cash in hand, I renegotiated to $4K...You never know!

T'was I. Been looking for one for months. And of course one finally pops up and the timing is bad. Oy. Trying to figure out how to scrape a few pennies together...

Or you could buy my 99 C2 for $20k. Just had a new AOS installed last week.

Thanks for posting up!

I emailed him.

Would anyone be interested in this car if it had a running 36K mile engine installed?! If so, PM me!

I spoke to him. He's not entirely sure and doesnt want to go into the engine any further.

He said he noticed soot on the left muffler tip recently. Car ran fine though.

Its had the IMS bearing replaced already.

Im trying to see if I can make it work. Might be driving across the US if I do!

Shhhhhh.... We’re $h!t talking the 996 to keep the prices down so we can buy them cheap for ourselves. We’ll create an artificial shortage then the price will skyrocket and we’ll get Classic Ferrari-like ROI’s.

Diabolical, really.

Keep prices down. Smash up your M96 engine and turn them all into rollers. Feeding frenzy to the bottom. Do I hear $3800?
