$18k, dubious rims, gearbox on the way out

Haven't forgotten I owe y'all pictures of my steering wheel and wood trim bits - will try to remember!

Overpriced with the tranny issues...

Chris, any backstory to how your car got from Canada to Prague?



Btw, after looking at more pictures I realized that a previous owner of my car replaced the dark burr wood door compartment armrest covers with what looks like Savannah leather covers. Must have been due to the wood going bad. Not sure how I didn't notice before. My brain just thought well, its an old car, the different pieces of leather must have faded differently. But now its the most obvious thing to me.
Will this one be for sale anytime soon?

Wow, an original owner car? That's quite amazing. Have you ever pondered parting with it? Do you own any other Porsches?

Bill, are you talking about my car? No, not any time soon.

In case you haven't seen this short vid about the number of different 911 models sold leading up to the millionth 911, here's a link. Interesting choice for the 996 era, eh?

Default #301

I've just purchased #301, with at the time 9,376 miles. Just over two months later it now has 9,769 miles on it. I'm located in Maryland.

Welcome, ukon, and thanks for sharing. That is one cherry ride. Leather looks great, wheels are still chrome, and the plastic inside the front bumper is still black and not faded gray, lol. How's the wood on the steering wheel? Were you looking specifically for a low mileage Millennium Edition or like me did you stumble upon one in your search for a 996?

Thanks for the welcome.
I stumbled upon it. I wasn't specifically looking for a Porsche but had been entertaining getting some kind of sports car for a few years running.
New guy at work mentioned he had the car for sale, and the rest is history.
He was the second owner, bought from his friend in 2002. He put on a little over 2000 miles between 2002 and 2007. The car sat in his garage unused for the past 10 years.
The interior is in pristine condition, no breaks or cracks in the wood.

That is a terrific find. Since it sat for 10 years did it need work to get running again? What are your plans for it, DD, weekend car, or just hold on to it?

Default Millenium Edition item for sale

Two things...

First, just wanted to compliment you on the great work you're doing to maintain the enthusiasm for and heritage of these great cars. I manage the 911 40th Registry group and would be happy to chat with anyone who might like some insight into how we manage our group. I've always been fond of your cars.

Second, in case anyone may be interested in a piece of your cars' memorabilia, I found this on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/PORSCHE-OFFI...item569a4e9621
