Bought it from a Porsche dealer in Santa Clara, Ca. Pd $32k. 74k mi. They replaced the water pump and expansion tank. Bunch of owners, but, safe now.

Thomas, an absolutely beautiful looking car. Really glad you joined the group. Seems like a very fair price given the nice condition. I have only had my 05 for a year but smile every time i walk by it in the garage. Bigger smile when i drive it with the top down!

The only reason I asked location is because I can generally get a good sense of the region by a picture. From your original post, I could only tell somewhere in the US with a temperate climate based on the fact that the top was down and no snow on the ground. I think you got a good deal. I would look at the coil packs. If they are original, they are cracked from heat and age. The first sign of cracked coil packs is after rain or a good wash, the engine will run rough and throw a code or two. But after drying out, all is normal. That was my experience. I just had my 08 4S gone through by my friend. It needed Coilpacks and a coolant expansion tank due to age. All fluids were changed but they probably already did them since it came from Porsche.

Who has a big, thick silver mane.......Thomas does!
