That is a good deal. But no sport seats or manual. The important 2 no-cost options on this car when originally built. Still a good buy if you're looking for a PDK.

Very good price for a 2011 base with PDK and SC, if the car checks out... I would be all over this if this showed up two weeks ago (we ended up getting another 997.2 earlier this week).

Beautiful car and yes amazing price! I've been seeing some 997.2 at around $39-42k lately with decent miles. I'm hoping for a near future depreciation especially for someone who is in the market for one. Congrats on your new acquire.

Thanks!! Hope I won't regret my decision =)

By the way, the silver one in the listing doesn't have parking assist in the build sheet, however, the picture shows sensor-looking thingies on the rear bumper. Maybe worth to take a look if the bumper was replaced or if sensors were retrofitted. Just thought I flag it for potential pursuers.

Did Porsche make all their 997's Silver with Black interior? Can't believe how many there are.

Very different if a car has damage or multiple issues. From what I've read it doesn't seem to be the case here.
After purchasing many, many 911s (30ish) and other higher end sports cars over the years I have learned many lessons. One of the biggest lessons I can stress is don't cheap out/bottom feed and purchase older sports cars (5+ years old) without current services or needing minor engine work and that have not been TIMELY and PROPERLY serviced throughout the years.

Time and time again, I have purchased cars needing services and what seemed to be a little bit of work for what seemed to be great deals only to have them later become horrible deals chasing down issues or while we were in there problems.

If you want top dollar for your car and you want to attract purchasers with a bit of experience of buying and selling these types of cars over a decent period of time, sell it FIXED.

Being so cheap as to not change the oil alone would make me wonder what else was skimped on. It may pass a PPI now for the most part, but STUFF goes wrong quicker and breaks more frequently over time on cars that were not well and timely maintained.

Stuff like coil . . . would be a super shame for a purchaser to purchase car, change them and then realize oops . . .. not the coils.
